My Life as a Realtor – Day 44

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 44:

Today is Thursday and I worked from home again and… A cleanin I will go, A cleanin I will go, High-Ho the cherri-o,….  Sorry, just had to get myself into the mood!  Everyday I do 4 to 6 loads of laundry – remember, 5 kids – I vacuum/swiffer and dust daily – mostly due to having 2 dogs, a cat and 2 birds.  And of course there’s the cooking,  dishes, beds, tidying up, watering my plants & flowers…  and we can’t forget the heavy cleaning – the entire kitchen, bathrooms, floors,…   This can eat up hours every day, even with multitasking.   And it doesn’t help that I have Remi grabbing dirty laundry and running away with it, taking all my cleaning utensils he can get a hold of and he LOVES the attacking the vacuum hose.  Sometimes, I have to lock myself in a room, just to get a simple task completed – but just look at that face… how can I ever get upset with my Wuba-Wuba

Was in touch with a few clients, one who is purchasing a foreclosure – another looking to do a Hubbard Clause and have a price reduction on their listing – and my client, and now friend, that I’ve been working with for almost 2 years and 9 months.   She has been waiting since Spring for a decision from the bank on a full asking price offer on a short sale – she had decided to no longer wait and is moving to Florida.  She so deserves a change and I wish her only the best!  I am not looking forward to calling the listing agent in the am – she’s worked so hard on this offer, but the bank just took unbelievably too long!
