Last week was a doozy, you guys. As of Wednesday, we were all set to move: I had forwarded the mail, set up DirecTV, booked a moving truck. Ash had our utilities set to transfer over too. Then Thursday morning, we got news that our buyer fell through – a mere one week from closing! So, panic ensued. Well, not really. Basically, our agent set up a pro photographer for 4 pm that afternoon. I went home at 1 and CLEANED. See, we didn’t even list before because the buyer knew our neighbors so he put in the initial offer prior to any of that. But anyway, the photographer came and got the pics done and our house was on zillow sometime in the night… because my agent never sleeps. The whole thing is a mess; this guy’s banker/lender really should have not led him to believe he could afford this if he could not. Sigh.
My mother got into town that evening as well, since she was going on my oldest son’s field trip to Animal Kingdom. Ash went out with a friend to fly drones and the rest of us went to Island Wings because I had a sweet coupon for a free entree up to 17 dollar value. The wing plate we split was literally free!
Friday, I dropped my mom and son off super early for the field trip bus and then went to work. We had about 7 showings throughout the day – and we even had to stay away as late as 6:30 for one last person. BUT, we did get an offer. He’s an investor who has cash so this may not disrupt the schedule we were already on – not by much anyway. Instead of moving this Friday – if everything goes ok – we move at the end of the month. Honestly, that had been our original date but we pushed it up because we could. SO, let’s hope this one goes well too!
On Saturday, Ash and I left around 8:30 to get to the shooting range. We recently picked up another rifle so we wanted to check it out. His friend met us there (as the range member) and we also got to fire a couple pistols. I’m considering getting a Glock 380, but with all the house stuff, now’s not the time. Either way, we had fun. My accuracy is surprising; lol. Better than I thought I was.
We went out to eat, then Costco, then we had set up to be able to go into the new house. Our agent said the other people were already moved out. Except when we got there, there was a car with a trailer. We drove around a bit and came back and a guy was outside. We figured it was the owner – it was – so we went ahead and met him. Super nice guy and he let us walk around and told us little things about the remodel they did, etc. I was really happy to be able to show it to my mom and the kids, who had not seen it either, other than in photos.
Yesterday was a lot slower; my mom left mid-morning and we had lunch, took naps, the boys played outside, and for a minute there, I was the only one in the house or awake and I was actually at a loss for what to do. I had no cleaning to be doing- since I did it all Thursday. Laundry was in transition and it was just nice to… sit and be. At the same time, I felt like I should have been more productive!
This week’s theme is songs with colors in the title. I just picked some random ones that came to mind.
