My Life as a Realtor – Day 15

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 15:

One evening appointment today – in New Milford – near Candlewood Lake.  We were followed around by 2 kitties that seem to have the run of the house.  Funny that my daughter Sara, sketched this picture of a kitty just this morning –

My “To Do” list is getting long…er – need to get motivated and start doing things – I do love crossing off  things I’ve done.  It’s great seeing the list get smaller and I enjoy the sense of accomplishment.  It also motivates the kids to help, they too enjoy crossing off the list.  Here’s just a few items for today that I added to my everyday chores

  1. Clean shelf and nic-nacs to make into our new cookbook shelf ~ CHECK
  2. Go through mail – get rid of junk mail – organize bills that will be paid this week ~ CHECK
  3. Clean out my pocketbook ~ CHECK
  4. Wash all fruit trays and rearrange on breakfast bar ~ CHECK

Before my appointment, I went to the officeCentury 21 VJF Realty – had an Open House today in Brewster, NY –  A home with 3.75 acres and zoned for 2 horses ~ CLICK ~  Eva and I also viewed another home in Brewster  –  a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home that’s aggressively priced ~ CLICK ~

After Open Houses, I received a call – a new client looking for a rental – we’ll be going out tomorrow since she has only 2 months left on her current rental.


Stopped at the bank – then off to A & P in Brewster, NY – flew home to drop off the groceries – picked up my clients to view the home in New Milfordhome again to make dinnerchicken cutlets, baked ziti and salad– Sara and Amanda helped alot with dinner, dishes and laundry.  Maybe, just maybe, I’ll be in bed by 2 am… it’s now almost 1:55am and I have just 1 more thing on my list!
