Oh and the big news is that Duff, Ryley's dad, is married! Apparently, he tied the knot with his wife while on vacation in Europe, though I am skeptical of what that means here in the United States. Maybe a zebra doesn't change its stripes. In any case, I wish him well and I hope he is happy with is new life. I also heard through the grapevine that Vicki has hired him back at her company, Coto Insurance. Duff is a great salesman and the two of them together ... well -- what can I say -- they should be a tough team to beat. I'm sure I will be hanging out at Duff's Sunday Ex's BBQs; we try and make the best of our situation.
What have I been up to? I know a lot of people have been wondering; What do I do for a living? While I still do mortgages and sell some real estate, as you all know, this industry has slowed. To fill the gap I started my own company called Veriya.com, which is a web magazine, to which I devote much of my creative energies. In addition, I was asked to be featured in a horror film. Funny the way things develop. I just couldn't keep my spicy Latina mouth shut, offering my opinion on all things related to the production. Either they liked my ideas or I exhausted them, but in either case, they have asked me to participate behind the camera in various aspects of production. Crazy, is all I can say.
After taking some time to focus on my kids following the passing of their father, I started and am dating again, which I have for the most part kept private. Who's to say what will ultimately happen, but I expect the next year to prove interesting. Stay tuned.
