My Life as a Realtor – Day 144

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 144:

It’s Saturday and my mom, sister and I are going Christmas shopping!   My sister drove – she is my favorite sister… well, she’s my only sister!  Anyhow, she not only drove, but she treated us to lunch and patiently kept us out shopping until we could no longer feel our feet!  Thankfully, I was glad to be able to communicate with clients through my cell phone so I had no worries that someone sent me an e-mail and I wouldn’t be able to see it until getting home

We hit a few stores in Danbury, CT.  Our first was Marshalls – where I did most of my shopping.  Then, after lunch, I ran into Staples to drop off my empty ink cartridges.  Then to Homegoods for… more shopping!  A quick stop at the liquor store for wine for dinner and then to TJ MaxxAnd our last stop was at Target

                                                       Picking out a few movies at Target

We had a long – fun – feet aching – loads of shopping – Holi-Day!

My Life as a Realtor – Day 121

Day 121:

It’s Saturday – after making a few phone calls – following up with Feedback from agents that have shown some of my listings – comunicated with clients – accomplished some work on-line and finished a few chores – I set out to Stop n Shop for some grocery shopping – keeping my eye out for any specials for my Thanksgiving dinner

Then a quick stop at Staples to purchase some ink for my printer and back home to drop off the groceries.  As I started dinner, I realized I forgot a few things!  So, I left David tending to my half started dinner while I went to Shaws – which is just a few minutes away.  I decided while I was there to also rent a few movies from Redbox and purchase a few more pellets.  I must have said this a hundred times – I LOVE MY PELLET STOVE!  Do you wanna know why?  Because it’s close to the end of Novemeber and I haven’t turned on my furnace!!

My Life as a Realtor – Day 47

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 ~

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.

My Life as a Realtor – Day 41

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 41:

It is the last day of summer vacation for the kids.  Melissa actually starts her college classes over at West Conn today – David tomorrow.  And Amanda, Sara and Jonathan also start classes tomorrow at New Fairfield Middle and High School.  I am not looking forward to having to get up very early – so working until the wee hours will have to change.

Made a quick run with Sara and Jonathan back to Marshall’s to exchange a pair of Jonathan’s jeans.  Then stopped at Staples to pick up some school supplies – their actual lists will be given on the first few days of school from each teacher.  After paying exactly $242.00 – I couldn’t help but think – this is only the beginning – I will be back at least another 2 more times!  The good thing is, Staples always has what I need – but just in case, Wal-Mart is in the same shopping center as well as Marshall’s and HomeGoods – and it’s an easy 15 minutes or so drive from home!


Soccer practice for Jonathan started today.  I am thankful that I live just under 5 minutes from the New Fairfield Schools

Dinner was Meatballs and Spaghetti – Jonathan’s favorite and a change from all the grilling.
