It is a great feeling to be back in the real estate world again. Teaming up with Marcos (www.marcosprolo.com ) has given me the freedom to make money and still spend lots of time with my kids. The market is definitely changed and you really have to work harder for your money. But there is still money to be made, just this week we got two new listings for January ... high five, Boss! Marcos is a great mentor and wonderful friend to me and my family. Being home with the kids is something that is very important to me and Simon both. Simon might have come off strong as we talked about me going back to work, but he just wants what is best for our kids.
When I was talking to Vicki on the phone about Florida you didn't hear the whole conversation. What you didn't hear was me telling Vicki that having three small kids it is very hard to get away on a girls trip. If I had it my way I would have brought the kids too. Simon and I don't have time to get away alone and I didn't feel that is was appropriate since us Housewives had another girls trip planned to San Francisco the following month. Vicki's kids are grown and she has the freedom to travel with or without Donn when ever she wants. The guys did their thing and we did our thing. I think Donn would have had a great time hanging with the guys.
Donn and Vicki's conversation at dinner about Simon was NOT cool. Simon NEVER said that their relationship was "not normal" What he said is that their relationship is "different" meaning Jim and Simon both have small kids and it is not that easy to travel. I was a little upset with Vicki's comments about Simon.
