My Life as a Realtor – Day 47

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 47:

Today, Sunday, I had a morning appointment in Brewster, NY – One house and one land listing – then we made our way into New Fairfield, CT to view new construction ~ CLICK ~

                                                        Jonathan & David at Staples in DanburySSPX0579

Then home for lunch with the kids – and back out into Danbury to finish up our school shopping – or at least I hope to finish up – at Staples.  Also stopped at WallMart to buy Jonathan and David each a soccer ball and to Bob’s for sneakers and shorts for Jonathan.

 After dropping off the boys, I went to show my listing in New Fairfield ~ CLICK ~ to very nice folks that had seen my For Sale sign

When I arrived home – the kids gave me the great news that we had no electric.  My neighbor called and that confirmed that our entire block was out.  It was still daylight, but I made sure to have candles and matches ready.  Although, it wasn’t necessary, since in less than 2 hours, the electric was back on – Yahoo! 

I got back to work – and at around 9:30 last night – BLACKOUT – no electric again.  I could hear the utility trucks going up and down our block, so I knew the problem was being worked on.  And after just a short time, all was back on again.

To save on my electric bills, I use our ceiling fans more than our central air
