How was your week-end.
Last night Hubby said he didn't feel we had a week-end. It rained, poured, Saturday. I managed a last minute trip to the farmers market to get flowers for our open house that was held yesterday. I can never find a parking place close by. It was 5 minutes til closing so I made my own parking place. Well, it was kinda like one just not marked. It was really close to the flower stand so I parked and walked quickly to the sunflowers that I spied. I parked my little self in front of the flowers so no one else would barge in and get them before me. The flower guy was so sweet. He bundled up about 10 of them and some filling and wrapped it all in twine and tissue paper. I also spied this little blue mason jar (yes, I can use another one) with these beautiful flowers. I asked how much and the flower lady said $8. Sold. So I got all the flowers for $15. I split them up and ended up with 3 arrangements and two teeny vases. I just love having the flowers in our house.
The rest of Saturday was working to get ready for the open house. Even though things are ready to go, it still takes forever to polish and shine everything just right.
We finished the last minute things on Sunday and went to church. We got home a little before the open house was to start so we did more things. The realtor arrived. We decided on an incentive of $$$$$$ at closing to a buyer. Off we went. Moi in one car with the little doggy and Hubby in the other car with the bigger doggy. The one that rides well but wants out immediately when you apply the brakes. Hubby goes to McD's for sweet tea and nuggets for us to have while we wait out the 2 hours at the park. (In the rain , same as last time) Both dogs got loose once. Little doggy came right back. Bigger doggy took off. He smelled the dog park close by. Then he realized his best friend and his devoting parents were getting smaller in the distance and he came right back. Whew. We then ran into another person that we knew that was having an open house as well. The dad and the three small children and two giant Great Dane one year old puppies. Then his puppies got loose. Oh my. I was able to capture one as he came to see our dog. I held him down, hah, for time enough for his littles to get him to hold still. He took a lunge at me, all in fun, but for a moment I thought I was going down. Those dogs are huge. Well we parting saying, "This is the last open house for us". Both of us agreeing. They hit the path for the dog park. We loaded up to head to the car. Oh by the way, I should mention Mc.D's gave me unsweetened tea and honey mustard sauce instead of honey. I dislike mustard. Okay, back to leaving the park. We got to the car, got our dogs in and it poured.....even hailed......dogs were in......we were almost in the car. The poor dad and his kids and Danes were far away from shelter. Poor kids.
We came back home and asked the realtor if he had a contract. He said that no one came. No one. Oh my, I know it happens. I do know there was a glitch in the advertising. We called and they reentered the info but it might not have been in time. Can you believe he said, " Let's try it again next week." Are you kidding me. No thanks. So we got the doggies settled and left to go out for dinner.
Exhausted but trying to still be positive. It will happen, it will. Not going to give up. Not sure why the market is so slow right now but we will ride it out.
So sorry that you have to hear this time and time again. We will party when we sell, promise.
Until then, sign up for my giveaway. It will make me feel better that you have some comfort from hanging in there with me.
I like to take pictures when the house is all tidy. My doggies sit at the top of the stairs every time we leave or come back. They look so cute. Try getting a picture of them doing it. Here are the takes and outtakes. I erased the really blurry ones.......oh my. I have said that a lot in this post, haven't I.
