JBOR Election and Affiliates night.

A brief explanation.  The last few years have had progressively more fun themes for our annual Jacksonville (NC) Board of Realtor’s election and affiliate night. This year was more or less a night at the Emmy’s/Hollywood evening.  So, folks were encouraged to dress as characters. . .I was thrilled to manage to squeeze into something non-maternity for a night but I think had I done a youtube video of me trying to get into some spanx (spoiler, I wasn’t successful) whilst getting ready would have easily scored more views than that cat riding the roomba.  ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLt5rBfNucc)  Safe to say, especially if you have European heritage and have assisted your Grandmother making sausage, a nine month pregnant woman trying to get into “smooth wear” basically looks like fifty pounds of sausage trying to get into ten pounds of casing, alternate image, a python who ate a deer.

Adapt and overcome!  😉

Sometimes a bhag (google it) falls in your lap, which gives you a taste to conquer more!

Cleaning up some messes. . .

This was waiting for me after work yesterday and pretty much sums things up this season.

It’s a great time of year for a friendly reminder to keep a look out for pests in your yard and home, maybe get a power wash rinse scheduled for your home.  Give the baseboards a wipe. . .and think smarter not harder.

Yesterday, I posted a link to my Pinterest page.  It’s chock full of great cleaning and organizing pointers and a few punch, tea and adult beverage recipes so you have something refreshing to recover with after some hard work.  Check it out.

PS-Some of my clean up includes digital and on the interwebs.  I’m finally below 500 unread junk emails floating in the inbox and reorganizing domains.  theglasshouseblog.com is gone, got annoying to explain it to folks. . .so enjoy the new and I SWEAR this time, more interesting and frequently updated, redwagonrealtor.com

It seems daily we hear locally of new jobs, new companies and corporations joining our great community.  SAIC (www.saic.com) , Barnes and Noble (www.barnesandnoble.com), Starbucks (www.starbucks.com), and Walmart (www.walmart.com) have increased their stakes in the Jacksonville and Surrounding Onslow County economy joining businesses already enjoying the troop increases like Target, Petsmart, Pier One, and more.

Jacksonville has come a long way baby, and is growing daily. . .the various planning departments of our community are working overtime to make room for the troops that have already begun to move into the area, an expected 9,900 in our area by 2011. . .not to mention the various civilian counterparts and support positions that will crop up along the way.  It’s an exciting time to call this area home.
