Happy May Day
Happy 1st, folks! Springlike weekend here in NYC to boot. Yay!
So, let's see. Spring break has come and gone, featuring a few days of camp for the Monkey, and a trip down to my bro & crew's place for the end of Passover (or Pes-accchh, as is more fun to say), where the Monkey had a blast with her human cousins. And she actually held it together quite well for round-trip Amtrak rides, something which until now was only a dream.
Also, way back yonder in March, I decided to follow thru on an idea I'd kicked around for quite a while, and sent myself to real estate school, where it took just over a month to complete the training course and pass the state exam, qualifying myself as a real estate agent. I've been meeting with oodles of nearby brokerages of all kinds and considering which is both the best starting place for a newbie, and best for current market conditions. I've made my pick (funny how I came back to my original instinct, even after exploring spiffier options)... and as soon as I have the official offer letter in my mitts I'll tell ya which one it is.
That's about it! And now, if you'll excuse me, I've gotta go tend to our 2 new aquatic roomies that Alana brought home from a carnival in the park today.
