January 10, 2007 - A New Year! Cheers to 07! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and a fun New Year's Eve! And I hope that your 2007 is filled with happiness, health, and everything you wish for. In my absence from my blogs, I've been busy! Some good things, some not so good, but everything is finally starting to work out. Most importantly, I got to spend some time at home in L.A. with my mom, and I was very happy about that. She's feeling better since her recent surgery, and it was nice to be with her during the holidays. I also had a great New Year's Eve in Arizona at a lovely event with some friends. Thanks to Dale for inviting me, and I look forward to great things down the road! Just this past friday I also had a friendly gathering with a bunch of my friends which included Jennifer, Tiffany, Joy, Gloria, and Jeff Madsen. We all met up at The Cabana Club in Hollywood. And boy let me tell ya, I had a BLAST!!! Thanks guys for making it such an awesome night. Part of my time over the past few weeks has been taken up by preparing all the documents needed to close on my new condo in Vegas. Even though it's been a long wait (longer than I thought it would be), it was worth the wait and I finally signed all the paperwork on Jan 8th. I'm about to take a trip to Colorado so I could get my custom-made Italian furniture out of storage because I've been waiting to get my new place before I had it shipped. I can't wait to actually use it! At the same time, I'm looking for a new place in L.A., maybe a house where my mom could live and I could use when I'm in town. I still have to work out the details on that situation, though. Needless to say, this is quite the time-consuming project! Also, as some of you may know, my sponsorship with Martins Poker has ended. I am in the middle of negotiating with several other poker sites, and I hope to have an announcement about that very soon. I also ended my contract with my PR company but am building a great relationship with a international sports agent who has incredible things in the works for me. Both of these transitions have been very tough, as friendships and business relationships are always sensitive to personal feelings, but I already feel that a weight has been lifted from my shoulders and good things are getting ready to happen. Everything happens for a reason, right? I wish I could say more, but I will as soon as I can! I'll be keeping busy during the rest of January with lots of business deals, my Vegas condo and L.A. home, and doing scheduled interviews and things like that. But I will try to post blogs more often, I promise! It's just a time of change for me, and I'm trying to make 2007 the best year ever! I hope it is the same for all of you!
