Baby it’s Cold Outside

“Baby It’s Cold Outside” – I totally agree!

Here is a music video with Jessica Simpson and Nich Lachey.  I know it’s yester-year, but they were cute together and both have great voices.  Enjoy!

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.

It’s COLD Outside!

Boy is it COLD outside!  Yesterday, I showed a home in Brookfield, CT – nice, cozy – warm cape.  My clients took their time and checked everything out – the way viewing homes should be.  Then we made our way into Danbury, CT– Brrrr!!!  We viewed two Foreclosures – with no HEAT!!  Both had been winterized so that the pipes wouldn’t freeze – too bad I did!  By the second home, my toes and hands were numb and my nose was running – but I couldn’t feel it!  I DON’T know how people work outdoors – like my husband.

My state of mind says it’s only November and technically we are still in the Fall season – but – Mother Nature seems to want winter here – NOW!  So, lesson learned for me – time to wear a winter coatscarf – warm boots AND bring something warm to drink for me and my clients!
