I know what’s on my agenda…

21 Jan

I worked out last night at the gym so tonight I get to take the night off.

I keep some healthy meals that I’ve cooked in the freezer. I am grabbing one of those so I don’t have to cook, a hot bath and some television.

One of my goals for the year was to make more time for entertainment and some relax time.

So tonight is a little decompression time.

A plane almost hit the building…

21 Jan

I’m tired because I was woken up at twenty til four this morning by the sounds of the engine of approaching plane. One of the reasons I live in Atlantis is because I like to fly small aircraft and the private airport is just right outside the gate. People pay a lot of money to live in fly in communities. I don’t need one of those because it’s so close. So are the golf courses, so is the park and the beach is 10 minutes away. It has everything I ever want.

But some moron really misjudged things last night. I heard the engine getting closer, and closer and closer. I kept saying to myself, “Ok Buddy. Pull up. Pull up. I should not be hearing this.”

And it got closer and closer. I finally got ready to dive out of bed and head under it. He probably came within feet of the building it was so close.

I thought, “He thinks Congress Avenue is a runway. That’s not the landing strip. He’s either too tired or too old to be flying.”

We had one last year that didn’t make it to the airport and crashed across the street. Chalk it up to, “It happens.”

He came so close it scared me. So I never got back to sleep after that.

Golf…

19 Jan

I went to the range last night.

I have a golf date today. We’re going to find out how these new clubs play.

It’s a beautiful day here.

She asked a good question…

17 Jan

My mother asked me, “Didn’t hitting all those golf balls hurt your neck?”

I feel it in four months but not now. Here’s why. I just had my neck procedure done. In the past we’ve done it once a year. Now we’re going to do it twice a year. They kill some of the nerves that go from my vertebra down into my shoulder.

I just had it done about a month ago. So right now, I don’t exact feel what I’m doing. That’s why doctors get upset when they find out I did golf.

What I have found is that I will start to feel it anywhere from 4-6 months later. And now we’re repeating the procedure at the six month mark.

This is the game I play in order to be able to do normal things, like golf.

I’ve had it done so many times and I know it so well, I can predict it.

Yes, my neck hurt some after hitting all those balls but not like if we hadn’t just killed the nerves. The problem with nerves is that they do grow back. Hence, why we repeat this all the time.

Why it’s such a hot button for me…

16 Jan

We have an absolute moron who’s part of my condo association that still didn’t seem to get the message even after law enforcement talked to him a few years ago.

This is as much of the backstory as I’ll tell you. I had a client who directed me to broker a deal for a multi million dollar piece of luxury goods. The problem started with who they wanted me to take over discussions with. There were two separate deals in two different countries. Both countries are in the Middle East and one of the deals was with someone who was very high ranking but a middle man was involved. The other deal was just questionable characters.

I never thought any of this was a good idea. Nonetheless, I took over the discussions and the negotiations. These people treated me as an American woman so disrespectfully and in a down right hostile manner. I really did not want to do business with them. At one point I was even asked to fly there and the destination was behind a no fly zone. I finally kind of put my foot down and told the client, “Look, no amount of money is worth putting ourselves in a very bad position. I do not like how we’re being treated or the things we are being asked to do. I don’t want to do business with them.”

Some of these negotiations had gone on for months. It was clear to me that we never should have gotten into this in the first place. I checked some sources for the background on one of the parties involved and the results turned up known connections to terrorism. But I think all my client could see was dollars. To make a long story short. We walked away. But it was not without the feeling that someone had sold my safety for greed. Because some parties were very unhappy with the fact we wouldn’t meet their terms.

It wasn’t long after when the first crime occurred. A break-in ensued and a laptop and a set of keys were taken. Nothing of value was stolen. Just keys and laptop that was obviously worth nothing except for data and the contacts of correspondence. The break in occurred at my client’s home. Because the keys were taken and that looked suspicious, I had all the locks on my home changed to the highest level security locks.

This has been years ago now. That case was never solved.

I had a friend at the time who knew about the deal I tried to broker and how I felt about it.

Some time passed and then I became the target of a crime. Again nothing was taken. I was obviously the target. A weapon was used. I was injured but no clear motivation was present. Their plan was foiled because they didn’t get the outcome they were looking for. The person ended up being a total bonehead.

A crime scene was declared and my person effects were taken and sent away to be analyzed. When the evidence returned in bags, the bags had the wrong address on them. This crime was never solved and it’s obviously unclear as to whether the two are connected. Right after this happened, the moron at the condo association sets me off because he asked for a key to my condo claiming that they need access when I’m not home. That was the biggest bunch of B.S. I’ve ever heard. I unequivocally told them that would never happen. No one gets a key to my home. The condo association then went and hired a West Palm Beach law firm to come after me for the key. I was livid. I relayed all this to the police department when they were conducting their investigations. They told me flat out, legally they cannot try to obtain your key. The police department contacted the law firm and the moron and told them “Don’t ask for the key. You have no legal right.” They were advised from law enforcement about why this is a sensitive issue for me.

More time passes and the friend who knew about the deal being brokered, is now dead. Is that death related to the whole situation? My gut says no but my head says you can’t rule it out. There’s a couple more connections between the friend and some suspicions but right now I have nothing hard that ties that death back to the original problem. That death is under investigation.

Then this week the moron from the condo association sends out an email saying that they need access to my condo when I’m at work. You don’t even want to know how mad that makes me. Finally today, someone smarter from the condo association sends out an email that says, “We actually don’t need access to her condo.”

That was a very wise move otherwise, if they had persisted, I would of had to have law enforcement pay them another visit.

I have the right to protect my home. I have the right to defend myself. And I have the right not to be harassed over this same issue. They need to quit asking for access to my home. It isn’t going to happen because I don’t give access to anyone. Period. I have a right to make that home feel safe.

I don’t even discuss this with my family and it’s not a point open for discussion. I handled what happened in the past but this is why there’s no access to my life. This is non-negotiable. I’m still angry about all of it. And don’t ask anymore questions because I’m not willing to provide any more details because I think it compromises investigations that may still be in progress.

I’m upset about it…

15 Jan

I received an email today that triggered a bunch of memories that I just tried to forget about.

A few years ago, there was a series of serious events that all happened to the people closest to me in my life.

Initially, I chalked it up to unrelated events. But there is a common connection, a one that’s more sinister. I’ve run the scenarios through in my head about where that motivation could come from but in the end I still just have pieces of the puzzle. In the end, I question whether any of it was related or all just bad timing.

I never talk about these events because it would read like something out of a spy novel. And I’m just not a drama queen, but at the same time, there is a question in my mind about, “Are all these events related because there’s a common element that points back to the same place. Could it be that they are related?”

In the end, all I have are puzzle pieces. I gave up examining this a long time ago because I just didn’t have the answers to be sure.

Not knowing is far worse than knowing.

So incredibly happy…

13 Jan

I hit 400 golf balls today.

I spent all day at the range. I took the new clubs for 300 of those balls. There are particular clubs in the batch that I like better than others. At the last minute yesterday (you might remember I hit 100 balls yesterday with a set of clubs that I immediately sent back),  I spotted a driver in the pro shop. It was a Callaway XJ Tall. What that means is that it’s a boys club, tall – which ends up being my height. I bought this silly club for $25 and it turned out to be the best driver I ever had because it weighs nothing and it more closely fits my height on a club. I also bought an XJ fairway wood and ordered a hybrid off the Internet. It will take some work because my aim is not exactly where I want it on those clubs so there’s a learning curve to the club.

So I golfed 300 balls with the new clubs. Then I left and went grocery shopping and decided to go back at night because the range has lights and it’s open late on Sundays. I did 100 more balls with my old set. I have never hit those clubs as well as I did tonight. The new clubs require me to really focus on the swing so when I got to my old clubs, it was a breeze. I decided that golfing at night on the range is the best. So late Sunday afternoon into evening should be my target. I also decided that the old clubs have some pretty good engineering and I am amazed at how straight I can hit the old clubs.

Then I spent an hour putting with the new putter.

My right elbow is killing me but I don’t care. I’m icing it right now. It was so much fun. I can not wait to golf next weekend.

When I made my list of things I wanted to do more of this year – golfing was on the list including more weekends at the driving range. Reading novels for fun was on the list and reading the aviation manuals was on the list. More swimming was also on the list.

I’m not the world’s greatest golfer but I love it. I always have. It makes me happy. And when you have a nice Florida winter day, you can spend all day doing it. The range is literally right across the street from where I live. I carefully selected this place because it is surrounded with all the things I want to do. I was thanking myself for choosing it today. It’s so perfect for me.

It was a happy, happy day.

So how did it go?

11 Jan

The new clubs were awful. I went to the range and hit 100 balls and then I promptly shipped them back.

The irons were way too heavy. I couldn’t get distance on the drivers. The engineering on the clubs was just not good.

I went back and looked at my old set, which I’ve been playing with for a long time. But they are made much better. The irons are lighter on the old set. And I had added all those newer drivers. I expected to get new technology when buying new clubs. But that didn’t happen. What I’ve done over the years is add drivers and putters to the old set.

So after I shipped the new clubs back, I took a couple of my existing clubs and I went to Dick’s Sporting Goods where I could compare what I have (that I am happy with but just wanted an improved club) and I looked for new clubs that were engineered very similar and a had graphite shafts. Some graphite clubs are heavier than others. So I bought another set of clubs. So tomorrow, I’m going back to the range. If I don’t like these clubs as well as my old ones, then they will go back and I’ll stick with what I have because I am not unhappy with them. The old clubs are what’s called a “full set” which means there’s every number and the bag becomes heavy and there are certain numbers I never play.

I wanted a set that included a hybrid club to do away with so many numbered irons because I never use them. The set I bought today is like that type of set.

Whoever wrote all those reviews about the set I tried today – well you don’t understand engineering. That set was made by the biggest name in golf but those are the worst clubs I have ever used. So today I said, “I’m not looking at brands. I’m not looking at price. I’m looking at the design only and the feel of the club.” And I’m not reading reviews.

So I’ll let you know if this set works out.

Today was just the day for things that needed design work. I wanted to save my new Pebble Beach golf wear for next weekend when I have a golf date. So today I wore something that we had made at Arnold Palmer Apparel. It was this dark grey golf skirt with built in leggings. And as I’m swinging this club I am thinking – now I know the rest of those girls who are designers are not real golfers. The waist on this skirt need to be 2 inches higher. They put it lower for looks but it’s in the wrong place when you twist. It’s fine for the driving range, but I would not want to golf in this for nine holes.

The whole day I was thinking about redesigning everything – the clubs and the clothes.

Several years ago I replaced the bag on my old set because I wanted a well designed bag and I got it. However, the second new set I bought today, doesn’t match that bag. So I might have to make a concession there.

Time for fun….

11 Jan

The weekend is here. It’s time for fun. I just got done assembling my golf bag with new and old favorite clubs. I am going to the driving range tomorrow to test them all. I can’t wait. I have 3 putters where I have to decide which is the one I want to carry in my bag.

I never worry about anything. But I’m worried what if the new clubs aren’t better than the old ones. Did I just waste my money on this? I hope not.

Then I have my great novel to finish that I’m reading.

And my aviation manuals finally arrived. I can’t wait to dive into those over the next few weeks.

Plus the new workout clothes are super cute and are making the gym fun.

I have lot of things to keep my busy on the weekends.

I can’t wait for Saturday…

10 Jan

My new clubs arrived this week and I plan to go to the driving range to test them out on Saturday. I had a really expensive bag before so I’ll be keeping that bag and just moving some of the new clubs into that bag. I need to hit the clubs to determine how I want to stack my bag. For example, I may very well keep my previous putter. I will definitely be keeping my Big Bertha drivers.

I had ordered a couple of the ladies Pebble Beach golf shirts. They are cut so nice. You know I look good when I screw up.

This week has been so busy. At work I’m watching the stats for a site I created begin to heat up. And that means it’s time to add fuel to keep it going. I wrote 4 television commercial scripts today and pick the media buys from the rate cards. I reformatted four videos and continued building out a social schedule. It’s a list that goes on and on and on. There’s so much to do. But the last few days I’ve been left with nothing but work and work-out and then it’s almost 11 p.m. at night.

I’ll having more interesting things to post on Saturday after I take everything for a test run.

Shooting star or something else?

08 Jan

Driving home from Boca to Atlantis in Palm Beach County, it’s very dark when I leave. On the way home I saw what was either a shooting star or it had to be a military aircraft because commercial aircraft cannot move that fast.

It moved fast and very downward toward the Earth. I’m inclined to think it was a shooting star but one never knows what kind of aircraft the military is hiding.

Mmmm. I made two wishes just in case.

Goals for the New Year…

05 Jan

I have many goals for the New Year, one of which is an extensive reading list. Some are novels just for fun, some pertain to hobbies and one pertains to diet.

I am going to experiment with the diet for a month because I suspect that I am allergic to something I am eating. I’m a total clean freak and I don’t use any type of rugs or carpet in my home. I’ve resealed windows. I don’t have pets. I’ve gone to great lengths to try to remove anything that could be an allergy. So in the end I am concluding that I must be eating it. I plan to figure this out by process of elimination. The next month I am making a big change to the diet to see what it yields. And in the meantime I am reading one experts book on the subject. I’ll let you know if it works.

Other goals pertain to fitness, skin care, relaxation, more organization, improvement in ability on certain hobbies, starting and completing projects on my project list. I need to knock a few projects off of that list this year.

It’s a long and ambitious list this year. But overall I am in a very happy place so all of this goes to the continuous self improvement plan. I like to accomplish things and feel like I am taking good care of myself.

I’m excited…there are new golf clubs in the future…

05 Jan

I am getting some new golf clubs. I had told myself that if I began cleaning out closets with items that I don’t use and sell it on eBay then I could use the money to get new golf clubs.

It turns out, I made enough for new clubs and new workout outfits.

So I don’t have the clubs yet, but I’ve picked them out. And I have a tentative golf date. Remember my long time friend the terminal bachelor? We’re going to play this month when he’s in town. I’ve already heard it and it’s true, “You always date these guys that are terminal bachelors. And that’s why you haven’t been married in 25 years.” It’s true. Somehow I always end up dating the terminal bachelor type. Easily, the boyfriends of the last 12 years were all terminal bachelors. Yep.

And as one friend pointed out, “You seem to be the terminal bachelorette. It doesn’t really seem to bother you very much.”

That’s true as well. I’m as independent as they come. Many a man underestimates me. And I don’t care for that.

The second caveat to buying the clubs was that the last neck procedure had to go well. It did. And I’m sure my doctor would like to beat me with the golf club if he heard I was buying a new set. He doesn’t like me doing it. I’ve been lectured about how the damage you do shows up 7 years later in a normal person let alone someone like me. But there are certain things in life that I love to do that other people hate for me to do. But I’m here to live my life and do the things I want to do.

For example, the terminal bachelor wants me to give up flying. And this is a metaphor but this is what he said – he told me that there is a certain point at which, “You need to put the gun down.” He equates the small airplanes to Russian Roulette.

I said I would take it under advisement. And in the meantime I am going to hide the aviation manuals that I just ordered that are arriving this week.

Note to Self – Don’t leave them on the coffee table.

I’ll think about it. No guarantees but in the meantime, I have some books I want to read.

And I can come up with some kind of distracting conversation. Like maybe one about cocktail dresses. :)

Pebble Beach shirts…

04 Jan

I was telling my mother this story at Christmas. I don’t like Costco because they don’t carry enough organic food. So in Boynton Beach they have a BJs Wholesale Club (which is owned by J.C. Pennys). Their produce and chickens are a lot higher quality. I often pick up a free-range, organic chicken that’s already cooked as a starter to something I am making.

So I was doing my usual shopping when I decided to look for some pajamas for mother for Christmas. So as I am glancing at clothing, I see these long sleeve Pebble Beach golf shirts. No way, I think. It was like 2 or 2 1/2 years ago when I was doing work for Arnold Palmer Apparel and they liked to use my skills as a jack of all trades – web site, photography, orders, operations, and preparing the artwork and selecting the threads for the logos to go on the shirts we designed for famous golf clubs and brands all over the United States. So what do I see at the wholesale club? Why it’s one of the shirts I made. I think that one was done with a Madiera thread. I remember doing different versions of the gray palettes for them. Then I did a multicolor version for the tournament shirts.

So when I saw it, I thought, “Oh you have to buy that shirt.”  I have a whole closet full of Arnold Palmer golf apparel that they gave to me when I worked there, but I never got to have one of the shirts of the clubs.

I am sure a lot of people don’t realize that in addition to what I’m known for (web sites, e-commerce, computer science, marketing, advertising, photography, magazine covers) there are some merchandise design items as well. I had my own line of design items for a while (and that was kind of obvious) but no one would ever know about this stuff.

Incredibly busy day…

03 Jan

And there will be another one just like it tomorrow. I went to work, came home and hit the gym. I just walked in the door from the gym at 10 p.m.

There goes my whole day. Now it’s time to read a little of that new novel before bed and my Friday will be pretty much the same as today.

A couple of very busy days.

Beautiful, goregeous day…Happy New Year!

01 Jan

It was a beautiful, gorgeous, perfect day in Palm Beach County, FL.

I swam in the pool, lounged on the chaise and read part of a novel. The weather was perfection. The pool overlooks the golf course and the lake and it was so breezy and beautiful.

Look at the beautiful view of the lake and golf course from inside my condo today. Today was an absolutely perfect day.

Those blinds are the blinds I am replacing in January. They are coming to measure next week.

This is what I was laughing about from last week. My mother had come to visit and we went to the driving range.  On the right hand side is the Biggest Big Bertha club that someone gave to me. I could hit this club really far. On the left is the driver from the Callaway Strata set that I bought for my mother last Christmas. It’s like a Bugs Bunny club. I call it the “Cereal Bowl” driver. I’ve never seen a driver this big. I could hit it about the same as the Big Bertha.

My New Year’s…

31 Dec

I am hoping for a day at the pool tomorrow. I want to go to bed early and get a good night sleep. I need to recharge. I work long hours and then with hosting company and the social calendar from December, I am tired.

I’ve got a new Navy blue and white polka dotted swim dress with a navy blue straw hat. My pool is heated so if the weather cooperates, I will don the sunscreen and take a book to the pool for a little relaxation and swimming.

I am hoping that can be my day tomorrow. A little peace and solitude in the sun.

I need a holiday from the holidays…

30 Dec

Between all the parties of the month and entertaining houseguests for a week, I’m tired.

I cooked extravagant dinners for a week and entertained and now all I want to do for New Year’s is go to bed. I even did a Lobster and Champagne dinner. We had high tea. Christmas Eve we didn’t go to bed until almost 3 a.m. I shopped til I dropped for these girls but they all loved their gifts. Perfume, teas, tea boxes, makeup, bath accessories, books, pajamas, an ipad, etc.

I got a nice new bag (a Vera Bradly mint green soft duffle on wheels for the gym), a gorgeous black sparkly evening gown, and I’m getting new blinds for the glass wall in the dining room.

I did get a chance to golf over the holiday and I had a blast. The new club I tried was outstanding and now I feel like I need to replace my set. I could not believe how far I could hit the ball with a newer club.

I was a bad girl and threw in a little shopping for myself over the holidays. I bought a new Kate Spade purse, some aviation manuals, some golf galls and a pair of earrings.

It was a fun and merry season. I will have to model the dress some time.

January will be back to the diet and the gym.

22 Dec

I’ve been getting ready for my guests this week. We are going to have a girls party. I’ve been getting ready for  Christmas Eve, breakfast and Christmas dinner. I am ensuring that we will have a great time. I spent the weekend, cleaning, organizing and shopping. My best friend and my mother are coming for Christmas.

I absolutely love it when my home is the picture of perfection. I designed it to be my little haven and it is.

Links to new work…

21 Dec

This past week, I worked on creating some videos for a new startup company that will be launching soon. As you know, I love to animate and to bring a business to life. This company is owned by another company for which I’ve been creating web sites, social, advertising, etc.

Here’s two that I created this past week:

It’s too cute, it really is…

Do you think it’s getting any better?

What do you think? I went and worked out anyways.

I think it’s getting better but that ankle is still really swollen. I hate Windows computers. It was a Windows computer that fell on it.

Planning for Christmas…

18 Dec

I had one of those nights when you wake up at 2 a.m. and can’t sleep.

I realized that this weekend, I have to get everything done since my best friend and my mother are coming for Christmas. This will be a girls party, believe me.

I started planning menus in my head. I’ll have to go and pick up all the food, Christmas cookies and Champagne this weekend.

I also need to get organized.

And I have to get back to the gym circuit today. I am just going to put a brace on the wrist and we’ll see what it can handle.

It makes for a long day when you get up this early.

The party was fun…

18 Dec

At the party, I was given an introduction to the Chief of Police for Palm Beach.

It was a pleasure. I thanked him for everything that he does for the community. That’s a tough job. He gave me his card. I will certainly keep that card.

What wasn’t fun was that it was pouring rain when the valet had to go get the car. Gowns and high heels are not fun in the rain.

Today was a fun day for me at work because I made two commercials (videos) that will run on a web site. You know I like to animate things.

Well it was fun…

15 Dec

The new Guitar Hotel is amazing in it’s design.

We went to the spa, had a little dinner and enjoyed the show last night. Chriss Angel does a very good show. He’s very entertaining and of course everyone thinks and prays for that little boy of his.

It was a fun time.

All my girlfriends wondered the same thing I did at a certain point, would this relationship ever turn serious? I’m afraid the answer is “No” girls. We have a tremendous amount in common and very similar taste but I heard him say the bottom line last night. Which is the famous line about not having ever been married and probably never will be. So that tells me right there, do not get emotionally invested in this because you will just get hurt and that’s all that come of it.

So unfortunately, he’s another G. I spent over four years in that relationship before I decided I had wasted enough time because G. will never get married again. It is the reason I left. It was pointless, hopeless and it’s always the woman who gets her heart broken. Guys that like that do not get attached to women.

I spent my whole 40’s dating successful guys who were fun and took me to great places but none of them were really looking for substance and they didn’t care if it lasted or not.

Now that I just turned 50, I would like something more real and lasting. I don’t want to be by myself in 20 to 25 years. And I would still like to find that one guy who would look at me and say, “I think this woman is special.”

But in answer to your question that the girls would have about last night – no, I’m not special. You heard the famous line. It tells you everything you need to know. And we’ve actually known each other for years.

The people I work with sent me out for a massage…

13 Dec

I had a warm up for tomorrow. The people I work with sent me out for a massage today. We had a big Christmas party last night and in the gift exchange E. so graciously bought me boxes of delicious coffees, an adorable monogramed mug and chocolates. It was a such a thoughtful gift. And the massage from the business owners was so appreciated.

I loved it until she started trying to work on my foot. It turns a little blacker every day. This is today’s view…I have been such a piece of work lately.

What do I need for Christmas? A big plastic bubble.

I have to go and finish packing for my day tomorrow. I am very excited about everything we are getting to do tomorrow at The Guitar Hotel.

The cows had their revenge…

13 Dec

We had a company Christmas party last night. We had to change locations at the last minute because a whole block ended up without power.

So we had the party at Morton’s in Boca. For those of you not familiar, it’s a steak house.

And I got the worst case of food poisoning I’ve ever had in my entire life.

I will not be touching a piece of steak again for a long, long, time.

I did not get much sleep last night.

These are the outfit options for the office Christmas Party…

12 Dec

The office Christmas party is tomorrow. I have to choose between these two outfits. Yes, it’s the same silk scarf in both outfits.

Option 1 – I am thinking I could put that black and gold Van Cleef earrings and necklace I have with the top option with the gold Tiffany watch.

or Option 2, a dark green velvet. I don’t like red so I was looking for “festive” Christmas colors. This one gets tougher on jewelry. I don’t have emeralds because I don’t really like dark green. I don’t like dark colors as a general rule. I would put some gold jewelry with it.

Look what the genius did now…

12 Dec

Brilliant, Laura. Just Brilliant.

There’s a Mac on my desk but the Windows PC is a tower under the desk. I knocked it over onto my foot, which is now turning black and the ankle is all swollen.

I do not understand what has made me so accident prone this past month. I am normally not this way. I can not get over my stupidity. Slick Chick. Yep.

My thoughts on this week…

11 Dec

Well they’ve taken the first step towards what they need to do. All 800 and some Saudi flight students have been grounded and contained. Now let them do their investigation and find out if it was isolated or a larger picture.

As for me this week, I have an “office” kind of Christmas party tomorrow. I haven’t pick out an outfit yet.

I am still looking forward to my plans for Saturday at the new hotel. I can not wait to see what they’ve built. This will be fun. I need 3 outfits for the day. I have one more to choose.

I am slowing getting items done in anticipation that I have company coming for Christmas – my two favorite ladies – my best friend and my mother.

The new computer arrived at work, I am just in the process of transferring everything.

I started back to the gym but I can only do legs only right now. Maybe next week I could return to “arms.”

That’s my week so far.
