Glad to be alive, 30 Day Challenge, Past Sub2 Client…

Posted on 17. Aug, 2010 by in Atm Deals, Random Ramblings, Real Estate Investing, Subject To Investing, Wholesaling



Well I want to start off by saying that I am super glad to be alive! Yesterday, I witnessed an accident on my way home from work and the car that got hit was headed right for me! I was stopped at a red light at an intersection and I was in the left turning lane to go onto the main road.

Apparently, there was a yellow light on that main road and a car making a left turn onto my road decided to go through the yellow right and a car going the opposite way decided to go through the yellow light as well and smashed right into the turning car!

The car literally was spinning right towards my car and I couldn’t go anywhere, because there was a pickup truck next to me on the right and to my left and front was this car spinning at me. I literally braced myself to be hit by a friggin car! Just as it went to hit me the car kinda turned and crashed into the sidewalk! Whew! I was a mess for real! I called 911 for them but from bracing myself my back hurt for the rest of the night.

Soooo just want to say that I’m glad to be alive and I’m glad that all of you are able to read my words right now and that I’m able to read yours! :-)

Now you remember Steph’s 30 Day Challenge from Flip This Wholesaler? Well I wanted to start working out again and get into the shape I was use to prior to getting my wisdom teeth out in January. I committed to working out at least 3 to 5 times a week.




Last week I worked out 4 times and I lost 4 lbs so far :-) Plus, me and Kathy and a few poker buddies put together a “weight loss” challenge because I kept posting about working out and they decided they wanted in. Of course, us being poker players and all, we put 50 bucks on the line lol At least 5 out of 8 of us are poker players! Ours is a 2 month challenge though….whoever loses the highest percentage of their original weight wins 50 bucks from each player.

Speaking of poker, we had our Homegame yearly championship on Saturday and I finished in 4th place and made some moolah (3x my buy-in.) And Kathy finished in 6th place and cashed (btw, when I met her she sucked at poker, but I taught her how to play better!)

Now today a past client that I did a sub2 deal called me. I don’t know if ya’ll remember telling you about a guy long ago that called me and I had a weird feeling about so I asked my dad to go with me and when we got there the house was immaculate and there were candles lit all over? And it turns out the guy was a gay guy and just really liked candles, etc. lol

Anyway, he called me today and asked if I still buy houses or take over payments like I did with his other house before? So I called him and told him I sure do and he asked if I would do that with his current house because his boyfriend just left him yesterday and left him with all of the bills (house, 2 cars, boat, etc. etc.) Oh and get this….the boyfriend left his mother there too! How’s that for some shit? lol

So I’m gonna see if I can help him out…gotta run some comps on his house. When I check things out I’ll have a better idea of if I’m going to wholesale it with an option contract or take it over sub2. And I gotta run comps on someone else’s house too…they want out as they are moving to Texas tomorrow!

Oh and lastly, we will be installing our 2 new atm’s on Friday into the cash only ice cream shops! I’ll keep you updated on how things go there, of course.

    Glad you are alive too. Sometimes life takes over and we forget to appreciate being alive till we have a near death experience. I love watching Poker, but don’t really know how to play. Kudos on your weight loss, I’m working on one myself, I just need a little bit more discipline. Looks like you got yourself a good deal there, keep us updated with your progress on that.

    So glad you’re ok, Carey! That’s scary stuff to see right in front of your eyes. A friend of mine actually saw a woman murdered by her crazy boyfriend in a parking lot of the hotel he was staying in. He felt terrible for days because he was too far away to get to his gun in his car…it really shook him up for a couple weeks. He’s ok now but it was just another reminder to be so thankful for LIFE!

    Anyway, that was depressing…sorry. Sounds like you have a great deal on your hands so that’s cool! But…leaving your mother at your boyfriend’s house along with all the bills is what would qualify as a low down dirty shame ;-)

    4 pounds the first week of working out??? That is awesome Carey. I also like how you and your friends entered into a challenge, that always keeps me going.

    Hey girl,

    Holy crap about that car accident! That’s some scary stuff- glad that you made it out OK.

    And congrats on the working out and 4lb weight loss! I haven’t been able to run all month because of my back, so I’ve probably gained at least 4 lbs, which is pretty annoying. Why is it so much easier to put on than take off? Totally not fair. :(

    Anyway, keep up the great work, Carey!

    Yeah I know Steph..what the heck is the deally-o with it being so easy to put on but not take off? I had a great first week but a dreadful last week….it was a horrible time of the month if you know what I mean. I swear I feel like my hormones say “look you better eat some chocolate or I’m going to choke you to death!” lol Good news is that I’m back on track again this week lmao

    And take it easy with your back girl…hey, perhaps ask the new guy for a massage? See how I’m looking out for ya!!! lol
