The More Sleep, Water & Healthy Food I Eat, the More My Body Craves by Michelle Carr Crowe. Silicon Valley real estate agent I wrote an update 2 weeks ago just to help remind myself to post a blog by the upcoming March 4, 2013 deadline as the midpoint for this "Get Healthy in the Rain" contest. Since writing that post 2 weeks ago, I've focused on increasing my sleep, water and fruit and veggie intake. Getting more sleep and rest--I'm focusing on getting at least 8 hours a night. I'm still amazed that the more sleep I try to get, the more my body wants. It's probably trying to stock up, afraid I'm going to force it to get by on 3-4 hours a night sequentially again. Drinking water-same thing. It seems the more water I drink, the more I crave it. Eating more Fruit and veggies-this is more ...

     Have you ever had trouble saying “NO” when asked to do something that you know in, in your heart, will really over fill your plate? I know right, a very silly question to ask of anyone, especially something you would like to see happen and knowing how much fun can be had or the importance it holds.    I went out on a limb and said yes to something I should have rejected immediately knowing there were several other  candidates who could pull it together on such short notice. It’s an informal holiday get together for some drinks at a local establishment, nothing fancy by any means. Here in lies the rub; we all worked together, at a car Dealership some 25-30 years ago and I have kept in touch with some but it’s the rest I have lost contact with…once again, Facebook to the rescue!    I...

WINNING! It's Not Just for Charlie Sheen Anymore by Michelle Carr Crowe. For anyone who missed the craziness that was the Charlie Sheen firing from "Two and a Half Men" comedy, "Winning!" is a phrase Charlie Sheen used in describing himself and his position. For me, WINNING is not about drama. At Keller Williams, it's Win-Win or No Deal. Kind of like these penguins here who reminded me of the "Two and a Half Men" characters. Seriously, doesn't the penguin on the right remind you of Alan, the one on the left Charlie Sheen's character and the smaller one in the middle, the "half" of the "half men"?   Recently I've interacted with a poor real estate agent who's still working from the book, "Winning Through Intimidation." I keep wanting to tell her, "Honey, you need to get a new book." I'd ...

Two Silly Holidays for the Last Day of September 2012 by Michelle Carr-Crowe, Silicon Valley and holidays guide If you read my posts, you know I love odd facts and unique holidays and celebrations. There are two silly holidays for September 30, 2012, the last day of September. One is Mud Pack Day. Yes, you read that correctly. That means we should all be taking an official spa day today. If you can't afford a spa day, consider buying a mud mask treatment facial and envision it sucking out all of the impurities, toxins and irritants from your face. It is possible to purchase a mud pack facial treatment at your local Dollar Store, making it an inexpesive holiday to enjoy. Two is Chewing Gum Day. You can also easily celebrate this holiday for less than $1 (or even just ask a friend for a p...

Three Things That Happened on September 23 By Michelle Carr Crowe, Silicon Valley guide and Cupertino real estate agent selling San Jose homes Not every day is filled with momentous celebrations. However there are three interesting things that happened on September 23. September 23 is the last day of Constitution Week. In 1962, the cartoon depicting the work, family and lifestyle of people of the future debuted: The Jetsons. (Some people are still waiting for Rosie the Robot to be available.) In 1846, the planet Neptune was discovered. (Sadly for Neptune, it was recently downgraded from planet status.) September is also Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month, Infant Mortality Awareness Month, Cholesterol Education Month and School Success Month.

 Mothers with college-age children can appreciate this story. My youngest daughter has been states away for college and I have missed not being able to give her a hug or just hang out with her. So I was pleasantly surprised when she called me at midnight to say "Happy Mother's Day." It was great to hear her voice and even better to know she was thinking of me and wanted to make sure my Mother's Day started out right. Now I need to pass it on.
