It's weird having to make my bed every morning before work and cleaning up my morning mess (like being sure my pj's aren't in a pile on the floor in the bathroom-undies included!) because someone might be going into your house that day.

People say that bad things happen in 3's-I really hope that is not the case, because two of my friends have had bad things happen last week and I don't want anyone else to cry.

I hate people who come around only when it's convenient for them. It's very selfish and they always get away with it for some reason.

No one should ever wear sweatpants in public, unless they are a high school girl who's got a cute little ass. This includes you Mr. I Work Out Everyday guy-especially when you wear a jacket with an elastic waste over them. (I was surprised he didn't have high tops on, to be honest)

This sounds weird, but I saw my niece this weekend for the first time in a few weeks and she's really growing up. I noticed right away, and it was because her feet seemed bigger-like, not little baby feet anymore. 8(

I lost the key to my shed, so I asked Loso if he could cut the lock off for me one of the days he's at my house doing the roof so I can cut my lawn.

I'm kind of nervous about the roof thing-does anyone else ever wonder if roofers go into your house through the attic and into your house? Cause they totally could.

I have got to focus on getting a proposal and contract written up for the big party I have in December. I've just been slacking on it, and I can't do that any longer...the menu is set, I just have to price it, and talk to Crazy Bruce about getting me some cheap liquor!

Going to lunch today with the staff-my boss is paying, which means we get to drink! Wine in the middle of the day with good food is fun...even though that makes me sound like a drunk. Especially after my comment about Crazy Bruce above.

The thought of someone walking through your house and bedroom and having to keep the house clean like it came out of a magazine must be so strange. I hope you get to sell it fast though.
I'm a procrastinator as well. I don't envy you for having to focus on the contract and proposal. Sounds like homework.
How many courses will you be serving in December? Big party sounds like a lot of work. Enjoy the drinks in the middle of the day. I like it when we do that here. So much fun.

I never liked to look at houses where people lived there b/c I felt weird walking through there with no one home. Plus, I couldn't really open closet doors and such. It is an odd feeling. I can only imagine being on your end. Do the realtors leave cards on the bar or something to show that they'd been there? I remember when we were house shopping they would all do that. I thought that was a great idea.

Kat: In December I am serving passed hors D'oeuvres during a cocktail hour, salad, main course and a dessert bar. Not too bad and I'll have people to serve it, plus a bartender and a prep cook.

Tisha: They actually have to call me before they go into my house. They call an hour before for my ok. If they don't get it, they can't go in.

Sounds like your life is super busy right now! Don't forget to take some time for yourself. :)

Have fun at your lunch today!

Make your bed and clean up every morning. Yuk!!! I'd hate that. You enjoy your lunch along with the wine. Sounds great to me. Have a great day Mags. :)

Every time I drank on he boss's dollar, I got into trouble.

I never knew the roofers to go into a house... but then I'm home all the time.

Good luck with selling the house. It sounds like you have a motivated realtor. That's important because some realtors like having the sign out so much that they don't work too hard to actually sell that particular house.

There's a legend around here that if you bury a statue of St. Joseph upside down on the property it will sell right away. (silly, I know, but I know a realtor who does this) You are supposed to dig it up afterward.

Lunch Verdict: 3 bottles of wine split between 6 of us...lots of food, very fun.

And also, red wine headache now.

3:30 showing at my house today...

Brian: I'm sure you have a cute little ass and can get away with it.

Katherine: Yes, but I don't think Marilyn does, especially after she drinks at work! ;)

Bond said...

Man I was going to ask the same question as Katherine....and I know what you mean about showing the house and having to make sure the porno is put away and that the crack pipe is in the drawer...what a pain!

I'm feeling guilty. I'm sorry. =(

A nice glass of wine at a business lunch is a wonderful luxury. You should enjoy that...especially since it's on the boss.

Marilyn said...

I wear underwear almost all the time... now.

LOL Marilyn!!!!
