My Life as a Realtor – Day 133

Day 133:

It’s a bit warmer today here in New Fairfield, CT – thank goodness since I was able to give the pellet stove a break – before I shut it down, I snapped this pic of Remi enjoying its warmth

I seemed to be on the phone and my laptop all day today – it’s a good thing I enjoy both.  Dinner was quick and easy since Joe is still working nights. 

I have been reading up on all the housing market statisticsHomes sales have shown gains for the past few months and mortgage applications were up even during the Thanksgiving holiday.

My Life as a Realtor – Day 132

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 132:

I can’t believe that I am still cleaning up after Thanksgiving.  Whenever I think I’m done – I find more that needs to be moved or put back – and…. in 3 weeks, our home will once again be filled with guests for Christmas Eve

Goods news today regarding my clientscontracts have been signed by both my buyers and the sellers.  This is a special home, and they are extremely fortunate to soon be the owners.

Remi is starting to warm up to his new toys.  The blue toy makes noise, and, at first,  he did not like that. Now, he is bringing it to his bed…

Here today in New Fairfield, CT – was very chilly – Well, more like freezing!  I couldn’t seem to warm up.  I was extremely tempted to turn on our furnace – but didn’t.  Between the pellet stove and fireplace – I am amazed that the house stays s warm.  Sometimes the kitchen gets a bit chilly, it always does.  With 5 kids and our pets going in and out, it is very difficult to keep this room toasty warm – and of course,  that is where I am most of the day!

Once again, I worked until the wee hours while watching Christmas themed movies on the Hallmark channel – trying to stay up until Joe got home who didn’t come in until after 1:30 am – he is now working nights.
