UnPlugging for Dad

Hey guys - I know everyone is dying to hear about my LA trip :)

My dad had emergency spinal surgery and its much worse than I expected so I'm unplugging for the rest of the week to help take care of him.

Plus my daughter starts 1st grade - yes 1st grade!!! - on Monday.

The agent contest is moved until next week.

Have a great week and see you back here on Monday :)
