Lost My Way
Sunday, March 10, 2013
Things have been so crazy lately that I have lost my way a bit. I have been getting in my exercise for the most part. Yesterday, I didn't get home from work until after 8:00 and started early so I didn't get any in. I'm not really worried about the exercise. I think my body likes a break every now and then.
I think I've lost it more with tracking. We have literally been eating out every day except 1 since Saturday (last week). We have been so busy and we have been going in two directions all week. One of us at a closing another at a home inspection and then the showings in between. I can't forget the text messages, emails and phone calls in there too. I haven't been making horrible choices. I have been sticking to fish with sauce on the side or turkey, but I have to admit it. I am tired of eating out. I have trouble tracking it.
I am so tired of eating out that we are not even going out for our anniversary tomorrow. For us, eating in will be an occasion. I do have a listing appointment tomorrow I think. It is supposed to be Tuesday, but I am trying to figure out where to fit JC in this week and, it appears, Tuesday is the only day I can get there unless we rush to fit him in on Wednesday.
I thought today was going to be quiet aside from writing another offer from that couple we took out yesterday, but now the other couple we took out yesterday wants a second showing so they can write an offer. JC is supposed to be in the mix today. The weather is so crappy out. It is cold, damp and raining and I can feel it in my back.
I actually turned people away this weekend. I don't get how people with 400 listings do it. I don't understand how they give the time to people that they need.
On a side note and this was pretty cool. I had a closing on Friday. The listing agent I was working with is one of the real big agents in our area. When he walked in our office, it was like the seas parted for him lol. In either case, he went up to my office manager and told her that I really knew what I was doing and he wanted to do all his closings with me. She was beaming from ear to ear. I don't know. I just did what I always do. I made sure we got to the closing table. This was a deal that the property didn't appraise the first time. I had my buyer move to another lender and we still closed on time :)
Ok, enough rambling. If I can ever find a day to eat at home again, I will. As it looks, every evening this week, we have an appointment. I will figure it out :)
