My Mom - Real Estate Musings from Arlington, VA

In honor of Mother's Day being this Sunday, I thought I'd share some stories about my mom. My mother was quite the lady, she raised me as a single mom; I was a 'latch key kid' before they had the term. My mom didn't go past 6th grade or '6th standard' as they called it in Trinidad. She was the fourth child of 9 children, don't ask me what my aunt's and uncle's names were as I don't even remember it at this one, except the ones that I really dislike and the ones I really liked!
