My Life as a Realtor – Day 78

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 78:

Today is Realtor Open House Day.  Carolyn was so kind to set up all the homes we were going to view – along with a Pre-Revolutionary 1732 Homestead that was not on the Open House list, but we were very anxious to pre-view for potential clients.  But first, before our fun afternoon, I went to the New Fairfield Post Office, then the New Fairfield Hardware store – Joe needed some caulking for repairs he’s doing to our front doors.

Obama – Mr. President

Election Day has been a day of anticipation for me.  Many speculate that the economy, the war in Iraq and the real estate market would begin to change and improve after  the elections.  Now, I anticipate that much needed change in our nation.

After a massive voter turn out – with more than 14 million voters than our last election day, Presidential elect Obama, completed a historic journey to presidency – promising CHANGE.  Thousands filled streets to celebrate the making of a historic day in America.

It was a moving and memorable day for me – beginning with taking my 12 year son with me to vote, to hearing McCain’s gracious speech – and ending with President elect Obama speech in Chicago.
