I was totally surprised

We had an office award's party at my house last night. 2 of my realtors won awards from RE/MAX last year and I got to present them with their trophies. Both Dean Stinson and Jim Junkin won the 100% club award, which means earning over $100,000 in commission last year. Way to go guys! I'm so proud of them. I also won my first award in Real Estate, Executive club, meaning over $50,000 in gross commission last year.

To my surprise, my Realtor's and staff had an award made just for me! They presented me with a trophy. I didn't expect this. Click here to see the trophy!

Found a new "favorite" show

My daughter, Candace, was home for winter break from UBC for the past 3 weeks. She now has us hooked on a new TV show, The Big Bang Theory . It's about some science geeks, and it's very funny. I haven't laughed so much since the dead parrot skit on Monty Phython's Flying Circus. Check it out!

Winter is evil to me!

A few years ago, I slipped on the ice in the winter time and broke my wrist. Well, it's happened again!
I was snow shovelling on Thursday Jan 1. I slipped on some ice and the shovel hit me in the ribs. I was thinking when this happened I was glad to have the shovel because I didn't fall on my butt this time!

Well by Friday night I was in a lot of pain, and had a hard time sleeping. So Saturday morning, Randy (hubby) took me to the hospital and I saw the doctor. He's decided that I have a fractured rib (98% sure) or it could be a really bad bruise. Doesn 't really matter as the treatment is the same, rest and pain meds. So I get to look forward to 4 - 6 weeks of pain. YAY, I love winter, not!

I've finally figured it out, maybe

So it's January 1, 2009. I think I've figured out the great toilet paper debate!

It's also the slow time of year for real estate, so perhaps, I have too much time on my hands too!

Now for that answer to the burning question of all time, over or under for the toilet paper roll!
If you are left handed, the toilet paper dispenses better when the roll is placed with the paper coming out from under! If you are right handed it works better the "over" method.

What do you think???
