My Life as a Realtor – Day 178

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 178:

Looks as though the market is beginning to pick up now after the holidays.  I have a few scheduled appointments with my listings and have noticed more activity in viewings on Listing Book in New York and especially with my listings in Connecticut.  This makes me smile – along with today being Friday!!

Did a few errands – then worked from home.  My poor laptop never gets a break.  While at home, I took a few pics of our pets playing around at home

Moe hiding at the top of the stairs leading to Melissa’s room. As I walked by, he tried swiping at my head.  For some reason Remi is afraid to climb up…

So he hangs out and waits for Moe to come down so he can chase him around the entire house…

Tisha preferred to hang out with me while I made my bed.  She wants nothing to do with Remi and Moe’s cat and dog game.

Day 177:

Today I was able to get some work accomplished before heading out.  Our first stop was A&P in Brewster, NY

                                                           My mom pushing the cart

Then a quick stop at Brewster Liquors for some Portuguese wine

                                    Terra dos Lobo – Red Wine (Translation – Land of the Wolves)

We enjoyed some Chinese Food for lunch – then went to one of our favorite stores – HomeGoods – and a quick stop at Walmart in Danbury, CT.


A nice day, spent with my mom – then it was back home and back to work.

My Life as a Realtor – Day 176

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 176:

It’s Wednesday – Court day for my oldest – Melissa – in Bridgeport, CT

Melissa had a car accident during a nor’easter – going down a hill, she skidded and her tire came off – !!! – and ended up under her car.  No damage to anything – or anyone Thank God.  She was very shaken up – and to add to her nerves, a police officer gave her a ticket!  He said no matter how slow she was going – it wasn’t slow enough.

We left home at 7:45 for 9am court time – we waited on a very long line until it was time to see a court rep.  We chatted with another mother and daughter and found out that her daughter had been cut off and ended up hitting a guard rail.  A good samaritan called the police – an officer arrived and also gave her a ticket!!  What the heck!  When it was finally Melissa’s turn to be seen, she was told to come back in a months time with proof that she had insurance on the date of the accident!  That was also the reason the mother and daughter were there, she too had been told to came back to show proof of insurance – very frustrating!

We took our time driving home – I made a few phone calls – we stopped at Dunkin Donuts – I had Melissa text a few people since I was driving – and then we had lunch.  Afterwards, I met clients at a home in New Fairfield, CT .  Here I am on my way to the home…

 About 10 minutes after arriving home, the Sears repair man arrived to fix my washer – Yeah!  It took him about 10 minutes – unbelievable!
