So have any of you ever had a problem with Dell Laptops with the screen going off for no reason? Well I have and now I can't use my laptop at all. It needs a new motherboard and I'll lose all my memory good thing I backed most of it up while I was researching this problem. So I have four houses this month. I got two in one deal on Thursday. They are short sales but hey I'll take them.

It was a crazy thing, this lady used her credit to buy two houses for a friend of hers and now they are both in foreclosure.

Tomorrow I'll call a prison in Daytona Beach to see if I can talk to an inmate who has a house in foreclosure. That is pretty cool. He's in for two counts of Cocaine and one count of Marijuana. He also got a really big settlement from GMC from a defective part in Camaros in the early 80s. I found all this out by searching the public record.

I haven't been to church in quite a few weeks. I told the Bishopric that I need to be released because I can't be there consistently. In fact I have been to the Temple more recently then to church. Anyway I gotta put the kids to bed they crashed in our bedroom. Laters.

I took two Ambien an hour ago and I might be writing this under the influence of sleep enhancers. I had to go through and change all my email contacts to get them to send to my new right email. Try this site for acheat sheet about to get around automated systems.

Still deciding on whether I want to kill off this blog or maybe rename it or start a new one. I'll let you know.

Cardinals won last night, Pujols hit a bomb in the ninth with two outs and two on base. I went nuts jumping on the bed.

Another hurricane is coming. Wilma looks like she'll come for South Florida early next week hopefully it'll miss us. We're prepared though we have wood and water and a generator in case something goes wrong. So we'll see. That's all.

I turned on word verification to prevent all the comment spam. I have been getting a lot of that lately. Its funny how they try and build you up and then hit you with a solicitation for music on interest free credit or something stupid like that.

I played my match tonight and I won 6-1 and 6-2. It took a while and the guy was late because he got lost. I don't think I am going to schedule anymore matches on Sunday. I don't think its right. I'll work on Sunday because our "ox" is in the mire so to speak but playing tennis I think is too much.

I am thinking about deleting this blog anyway and keeping a journal on my computer only not available on the internet. Needless to say some people read this and were hurt by the content so I don't know if it is worth it anymore. I am going to think about it, however. Anyway, I am out.

I got a house again. It is a 3/2 in Titusville we'll get it for 85K and hopefully sell it for 120 to 130K. Oh and by the way, Summer says that I have a party in my pants and you are NOT invited.

Funny the things that get said across the marriage bed.....

I have gotten three houses in the past month. So not bad really. I have really been knocking and working hard.

Tomorrow I start the Orlando Flex League which is the singles league that I have been anxiously awaiting. I haven't played tennis in awhile so it should be fun. There is a tournament coming up on the 22nd in Orlando so I might play in it. Anyway that's all for now.

So here we are...Dohn met with a tennis buddy and he is starting a new business down in SW Florida providing investment opportunities for pre-construction down there. It sounds pretty good, but we don't have enough credit history to get going on it yet. There are too many conditions for us to qualify so it won't work. Its too bad could have been a great opportunity. Maybe we'll try in May of 2006 once it has been two years of self-employment.

I have been really knocking down the doors. I didn't get the trailer that I was looking at because the guy called a "Stop Foreclosure" sign and he offered him 1K plus money to get into a house. It wasn't even that great of a deal in the first place. Oh well, I have a couple other of possibles in Titusville and Deland. So we'll see.

I have been doing a lot of Genealogy lately. We are going to the Temple on Friday and we'll do some more work. I want to go as far as I can with it. It'll be neat.

My Singles Tennis League starts this week. I have a match this week sometime. Should be fun....

So my brother is back.... He seemed somewhat civil on the phone today. Maybe he doesn't hate me after all. I knocked on ten doors today in Orange County. I also got laser treatment for my tatoo to have it removed. The laser feels almost identical to what it felt like to get the tatoo done in the first place. But this procedure will cost 20 times more to remove then to install. Talk about a stupid tax.

Summer was in a car accident last year. Nobody was hurt but she was found at fault and we didn't have enough insurance so we are dealing with a law firm in North Florida that is threatening to sue. They want us to sign a stipulation that basically says they can enter a final judgment if we fall behind.... Crazy. I think we will probably sign but I want all the "t's" and "i's" crossed and dotted.

On the radio today they were talking about with MSN and all that. I have a space but I really prefer this blog right here. It serves as a journal for me.

I am getting back into the swing of working. I have knocked every day this week. I didn't skip hardly any doors and no movies.

Tomorrow I go talk to a women in Cocoa who is renting a house that we just bought. We are going to try and convince her to move. But we'll see. She is on month to month lease so we'll give her thirty day notice if she refuses then we'll evict her. But it could make it really hard to sell the house. And I need this house to sell to pay Dohnnie back.

I wish I could get up the gumption to eat better and exercise. Now that I am focusing on knocking and working, it is really hard ot even think about working out. The tennis singles league starts next week so maybe that will help with motivation. I am just so tired when I get home. I drive between 200 to 350 miles a day sometimes. It tires you out in a different way then real hard manual labor. It is more emotional and in your head.

Summer had a baby shower tonight and Tina went to Institue so the boys and I watched the Braves and Astros NLDS. It was fun, Sam and Jake really enjoyed it. It was fun to spend some quality time.

The Cardinals won today also, they are up 2-0 just need one more win to advance. They look good but their relief pitching seems shaky to me. Anyway thats it. Laters.

So its a been a little while since I wrote. We had a closing and I was supposed to get half the net profit. Well my brother who is the boss was out of town so I told the Real Estate Attorney to send it all to me. So know I owe my brother like 15k.

I almost got separated over it. And obviously, my brother doesn't trust me anymore. I had to practically beg just to not get kicked out of my own house. So I have been knocking a lot these past couple of weeks as a result. I am getting back into the swing of things for sure.

We replaced the water heater on our own in our house. That was fun. Summer is tiling a shower in our master bath and laying a tile floor. It is going slowly but she is doing a good job.

We transferred the internet over to Cable and it is so much faster!!! We are also getting Vonage for our business phone which will save us a hundred bucks a month.

Sammy is getting potty trained again very well.

I have decided to take the LSATs in December and see how I do. I want to apply to Law Schools to start next fall. But the trick will be getting something in Orlando. Otherwise we would have to move and I don't want to do that yet.

Ironically, Summer and I have been going to the Temple a lot and it has helped me get an idea of what I really want to do with my life and where I need to improve myself and really make decisions that deal with the real world and not the world inside of my head.

So anyway that is all for now.
