Already, with the catching up…

Well, if you know me, and you know that I’m a Realtor (with the Capital R) then you know that I pretty much sleep all day and work for two hours in the evening then go out with friends/clients until the bars close, then start all over again.


Oh, I forgot to say that I also have a family, other interests, and (hello?) a life…

The interesting thing about this blog is when all of the aforementioned things COLLIDE! …. as in this past week. Allow me to elaborate:

A few weeks ago I agreed to take over for the Relocation Director at our brokerage while she was on maternity leave. The due date in mid-October would allow us sufficient training time, and, the agent who had previously held the job was also available to help out and answer questions. Not really a problem… I do have a trip to New York scheduled, and my kids are heavily involved in the high school musical, but I should be able to fit that in… no problem.

** Once again, allow Reality to intervene….**

According to preapproved plan, I go to New York… and then…. The cast list goes up – one of my kids makes it, the other doesn’t. The pregnant relocation director, suffering from horribly high blood pressure goes into early labor and delivers a premature baby three weeks early. The previously trained agent decides to leave the brokerage that same week. The biggest national referrer of clients has a web overhaul and the anticipated connection problems do indeed ensue. The wireless Internet connection for our office which has the occasional hiccup, develops a chronic case of hiccups. The most expensive listing in my career gets some actual interest…. I have actual customers who want to write viable offers on houses.

(Heroic laugh) Never Fear! Super Linda Is Here!

I just wanted to make a very dramatic excuse for why I missed that last couple of days posting. The resolution of the above will obviously make for very good blog post fodder! Nya haa haa!

    Ha! You sound like you've taken it all in stride — there's a lot to be said for the wisdom of maturity. Good on ya!
