My Life as a Realtor – Day 45

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 45:

Interesting day today.  Things are thankfully moving along with my clients offer on a Foreclosure.  Met with my other client to get his signature for a price reductionA beautiful home – with water views of Ball Pond in New Fairfield – the listing price is now…. CLICK here to find out!


Then off to Brewster to the office – and a trip to A & P , the HSBC Bank and Rite Aid and to gas up.


While I was in A & P – a client – who I assisted in purchasing her home in Patterson – called to have me send her a listing for a friend.  It was very nice to hear from her again.  I always like when clients call or e-mail from time to time with an update on how things are going in their new home – always a pleasure.

When I arrived home, that’s when all the fun began…. Asthma kicked in full force and since it’s been acting up alot lately, I called my Doctor – too late, her office was closed – so off to Danbury Hospital – Melissa drove and I thought it would be to get a simple injection of steroids.  Well, the joke was on me – when hearing that my chest felt as though someone was sitting on it – they whisked me off into a room in the ER – gave me a gown a gown I thought!  I just want an injection – but that wasn’t happening – an EKG, Blood Work and a Chest X-Ray later – I was finally given my shot and discharged – Whew!  Although, I must admit that it was better to be safe, and now I have peace of mind knowing my heart and lungs are fine – no issues.  Also, Melissa and I had a few laughs when one of the nurses came in with a tray a food.  I really thought I wasn’t going home any time soon!

After being well taken care by ALL of the Danbury Hospital Staff – Melissa drove me home.  Poor thing still had to go into work at around 9:30 til after midnight to help straighten up and get the store ready for tomorrow – Hollister at the Danbury Fair Mall.  I ate some dinner, then went to my clients home to change the listing price on the sheets that are placed in a brochure box near the For Sale sign outside for any interested pass-byers.  I couldn’t wait until tomorrow – so off Amanda and I went at 10:15 in the evening –  it would have bothered me that I did’nt go.

My Life as a Realtor – Day 27

What a day!  David’s surgery was scheduled today – Putnam Hospital – and all went well – Thank God!  Every one at the hospitalwas kind, courteous and kept his spirits up – and mine!  His “coolie sinuses” are gone for good – no more infections to deal with.  This is now David’s 2nd operation– he has had his appendix and gall bladder removed – he’s also already had a colonoscapy when doctor’s thought he had chrones disease – and… he is only 19 – a young man in an old mans body.

Hot diggity dog – he’s gonna kill me for posting this photo!!

While David was in surgery, I was working away in the waiting room.  I was glad that the hospital had wireless connection.  Work kept me busy and helped calm my nerves!


When it was time to go home, David was feeling fine… until he got into the car.  I guess the pain meds wore off – so I called our pharmacyRite Aid– to fill the pain meds prescription.  The pharmacist said there was an hour wait, but to see her and she’d have it ready in 15 minutes!  I seem to be meeting lots of kind people today… and I like that.

 Then, I dropped David off – flew to New Fairfield’s Food Market to pick up dinner – I know, I don’t care much to order out, but today was an exception or we wouldn’t have eaten until after 8pm – Oh, who am I kidding – I love to order out – just hate the expense and that it isn’t as healthy as home cooking – and that is why we don’t order out much.

Quickly ate, then had hubby-hub help put Century 21 VJF For Sale signs together for my listing in New Fairfield – Went and put up 2 of them – one on the main road – Ball Pond Road – which fronts the house and another near their driveway.


And my last errand was a trip to Best Buy to buy season 1 & 2 of “House” for David – he had been looking forward to watching these episodes while recuperating.  Before it got any later, I called a client from my car to set up an appointment to possibly list his home. Finally… home where I was up until around 3am – working.
