My Life as a Realtor – Day 33

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 33:

Busy today, but not as usual and I was grateful for that since I had a headache that just wouldn’t leave!  My mother suffers from them and they are not fun.  But I keep chuggin away knowing that it will eventually pass.

I called Portugal again today – and again, Joe was not at home – he is taking advantage of every minute he’s there – good for him!  We are setting up a Skype account so that me and the kids can chat and see him for the next few weeks that he’ll be there.  I also spoke with my mom, who lives about 2-1/2 hours away from where Joe is.  Hopefully, we will be seeing her this fall.

My day continued – putting work aside for a bit and tending to the house – everyday I vacuum and/or swiffer my floors – and everyday Remi attacks what I’m cleaning with.  After a bit, he gave up on taking the vacuum hose from me and decided to chase Moe – here is where Moe ended up…


David made dinner tonight – a very delicious roasted chicken, mashed potatoes, steamed veggies and a flat bread with fresh homegrown tomatoes and mozzarella – Mmmmm!
