My Life as a Realtor – Day 95

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 95:

Oh my, my, my!  I’m sicker than a dogs dog – whatever that means!  Woke up with a ginormous headache and a fever.  I guess things have caught up to me and this is my body forcing me to rest!  So, I gave in – had no other choice – and slept most of the day away…  or at least I tried to in between Remi chasing Tisha and Moe – barking and jumping – Oh my aching head!


Thoughts of the party last night – here is a picture of the guest of honor – my sister Lisa, my little – or I should say, younger brother Louie and me!

Once again, this is why I love being a Realtor.  From bed, I was able to communicate with a few agents and clients – making sure all was well and taken care of.

Day 94:

Surprise 50th Birthday Party for my sister Lisa…

party_045                                                                              Cheers!

The celebration was at Biscotti’s in New Fairfield – just minutes from home which was great since we invited a few people after the party to our house for some more celebrating!

Before the party, I was dealing with an offer.   The listing agent and I have been going back and forth and I am  thankful that she is so professional.

During the party, I left for a few minutes to pick up Amanda at the Home Coming Game at the New Fairfield High School – it was pouring and boy did my hair look lovely when I got back!
