My Life as a Realtor – Day 3

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 3:

Yeah, it’s Friday!  Even though I’m a Realtor, and do not have a 9 to 5, Monday thru Friday job, I still love my Friday’s.  It’s an easy dinner/movie night – and when school is in session – no lunches to be made and no homework!

We’re babysitting my in-laws dog, Fo-Fo – who LOVES waking us all up VERY EARLY EVERY MORNING (I am talking through my teeth)  And when I say wakes us ALL up – I mean – me, the kids, our 2 dogs and even the birds start half sleepily tweeting – Ugh!  So, today was not such a happy Friday morning.   

Cohen 007                                           Cohen Fashion Optical – Danbury Fair Mall – Danbury, CT

3 of my kids had an appointment for eye exams over at Cohen Fashion Optical in the Danbury Fair Mall in Danbury, CT.

Cohen 005                                                            Cleda – Cohen Fashion Optical

Cleda took very good care of us – even though we were very, VERY late!

Cohen 004                                                          Melissa & Sara – Choosing Frames

My youngest, Jonathan, is the only one in the family – of all 7 of us – to not have to wear contacts and/or glasses… for now.  He went in first, then sat patiently with me while I worked.  I always bring something for me to do – I never, ever waste time!

Cohen 014                                                              Leslie – Cohen Fashion Optical

Leslie took care of me during the most difficult part… paying!  She did this with a smile while graciouly greeting customers.  I look forward to going again for my other 2 kids and my eye exam.

Cohen Fashion Optical ~ Danbury Fair Mall ~ 7 Backus Ave ~ Danbury,  CT 06810 ~ P. 203-790-1341 Monday thru Saturday: 10am to 9:30 pm  ~  Sunday: 11am to 7pm

                                                                Some of my groceriesCohen 016

Afterwards, I dropped off the kids – went to the office for a few hours – went to Shaw’s for some groceries and came home to dinner…. made…. by my son… David… he is the best!

OK, it’s still an early night – only 11:40pm – so, back to work – Bedtime will be sometime after 1am – where I will get some much needed Zzzzz’s – until Fo-Fo wakes me again.

It’s raining – and at times pouring today.  Here in New Fairfield, CT – where I live, and Brewster, NY– where I work, streams and rivers are rushing, reservoirs are filling, puddles are bountiful! 

Click to view this slow moving stream in my backyard that was not so slow today!

I’ve decided to make this wet Friday a – Flickr Foto Fun Friday Post with pics of RAIN.  Here are just a few of  the photos that I have come across on Flickr.com.  Whether it’s the object being photographed, the camera being used or the photographer – I am in awe with some of these fantastic pics – and – I admit, I am addicted to Flickr photos!

With our current economy problems growing and more and more people being affected – causing much un-needed stress, I have decided to do a “Friday Fun Post” – I hope it makes you smile.
