I'm through with standin' in line
at clubs I'll never get in
It's like the bottom of the ninth
and I'm never gonna win
this life hasn't turned out
quite the way I want it to be
(Tell me what you want)...

...I need a credit card that's got no limit
And a big black jet with a bedroom in it
Gonna join the mile high club
At thirty-seven thousand feet..

...I'm gonna trade this life for fortune and fame
I'd even cut my hair and change my name...

Hey, hey, I wanna be a rockstar
Hey, hey, I wanna be a rockstar

...I'm gonna dress my ass
with the latest fashion
Get a front door key to the Playboy mansion...

...'Cause we all just wanna be big rockstars
And live in hilltop houses driving fifteen cars
The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap
we'll all stay skinny 'cause we just won't eat
And we'll hang out in the coolest bars
in the VIP with the movie stars...

...Hey, hey, I wanna be a rockstar
Hey, hey, I wanna be a rockstar...

I've been digging this song lately. I mean, hell...don't we all just wanna be rockstars?

I Got Hired!

Well, First Coast Homes hired me on to be their Community Specialist at Stoney Creek. It's a pretty nice neighborhood, and very close to home. Today I stopped by Prudential's main office to complete paperwork on switching offices. I know this is kind of funny to say, but one of the things that made me hesitate on moving forward with new construction is my very awesome office and broker. I know I'll still be talking to some of them on a fairly regular basis, but I have to admit that we have the rockin'est office, by far. Anyway, cool people don't pay the bills, so I happily accepted the offer to switch divisions.

So far there is tons for me to learn. The paperwork is different, and I keep having to remind myself that I'm not in resales. Hopefully by the next couple of weeks, I'll have the swing of things and I'll feel more comfortable with being left alone on site.

Last weekend I braved running the bridge since my last bridge run 2 years ago. This was actually the first time I'd been on the new bridge, and I think I've convinced myself that I've really got lots of work to do. LOTS. The incline on this bridge is a bitch, and being totally out of shape doesn't help the situation. I'm sure I won't be running record time, but who cares. I'm there.

Anyway, I'm excited to see how I'll do in New Homes. Much to learn, but still excited.

No, I Haven't Fallen Off The Face Of The Planet

"So, where the hell has Cher been?" you may ask. To be honest, I've been working on finding more time for me. I've been trying to find myself again, and let "mommy" and "housekeeper" and "wife" take a break for a minute. Where the hell is Cher? Who the hell am I anymore? That's what I've been focusing on these past couple of weeks.

Now that Gabriel's a little older, I've been more comfortable with leaving him with the grandparents a little more. In the meantime, I've been going to the gym and trying to get back into working out. On top of that, I've signed up for the 5k Flowertown Run Festival this month, and two weeks later running the 10k Cooper River Bridge Run. I don't know what I'm getting myself into, seeing it's been quite awhile since I've ran, but I've got a little bit of time to train. Hell, I see it as more time for me. Even though I know I won't be making breaking record time on my runs, I'm happy to know that I'm planning something for myself...and something that I'd enjoyed pre-baby, pre-marriage, pre-identity-tied-to-someone-else.

I've also decided to pursue a bit of a directional change in my career. Nothing big, but hopefully something that will work out with my hours I am willing (or not willing) to put into my job. We'll see have how everything pans out. Whatever happens, it will all work itself out. In the end, it always does.
