My Life as a Realtor – Day 51

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 51:

Another busy day – I’m getting behind in my posts and that makes me unhappy.

Being busy is appreciated – and I really don’t know how to sit still!

On this 51st day, I did alot of driving around with our little rental car from Enterprise– Chevy Colbat


Since Joe has decided to paint our kitchen cabinets– yes, I know, I had said I was going to do it during his visit in Portugal – but never did!  So, off to Home Depot in Danbury I went…

SSPX0596                                                         Bought some paint, primer and brushes

Dropped everything off at home where Joe had already started to remove cabinets, hinges, knobs and sanding everything down.  I then dashed to Shaws for more grocery shopping….


Ran home, made lunch, made phone calls, sent e-mails, made appointments and was so excited about our kitchen redo!

And to add to all of my excitment – I have a new listing!

The color YELLOW  is associated with knowledge, sunshine and flourishing of all living creatures.  This past weekend, my husband painted one of our rooms the color YELLOW.
