My Life as a Realtor – Day 41

Day 41:

It is the last day of summer vacation for the kids.  Melissa actually starts her college classes over at West Conn today – David tomorrow.  And Amanda, Sara and Jonathan also start classes tomorrow at New Fairfield Middle and High School.  I am not looking forward to having to get up very early – so working until the wee hours will have to change.

Made a quick run with Sara and Jonathan back to Marshall’s to exchange a pair of Jonathan’s jeans.  Then stopped at Staples to pick up some school supplies – their actual lists will be given on the first few days of school from each teacher.  After paying exactly $242.00 – I couldn’t help but think – this is only the beginning – I will be back at least another 2 more times!  The good thing is, Staples always has what I need – but just in case, Wal-Mart is in the same shopping center as well as Marshall’s and HomeGoods – and it’s an easy 15 minutes or so drive from home!

Soccer practice for Jonathan started today.  I am thankful that I live just under 5 minutes from the New Fairfield Schools

Dinner was Meatballs and Spaghetti – Jonathan’s favorite and a change from all the grilling.

Day 40:

Today – Melissa, David and Jonathan – came with me to the Danbury Fair Mall in Danbury.  We needed to pick up Amanda’s contacts and order Melissa’s contacts from Cohen Optical

Then we went to the Sprint store to purchase David a new cell phone – the Blackberry Curve.  Then we grabbed a bite to eat – Chinese Buffet…

and then off to my sister’s home in New Fairfield.  We went to see her new master bath – which is coming out BEAUTIFUL!!  The white tile, nickel brushed faucets and accents, deep rich colored cabinetry and painted red walls – striking!   Now I really want to renovate my master bath – but I can’t seem to get started on painting my kitchen cabinets

Back home – and back to work.

My Life as a Realtor – Day 39

Day 39:

Another rainy day – so since we’re limited to doing indoor activities, it was back to finish up our school shopping.  We did good yesterday, but we still needed sneakers and backpacks and a few other items to purchase.  So it was off to Bob’s in Danbury – I had a great coupon to use, so deciding where to go was easy!

Afterwards, we passed by my brother’s home in Brookfield, CT.  They have been renovating just about every room and I am amazed every time I go since there is always something new to see.  My sister-in-law, Leia, has a knack for interior decorating and I am inspired and look forward to every visit.

Then it was back home – and back to work.
