A Week Without Bridger Is Quiet, but Not Much Else

A Week Without Bridger Is Quiet, but Not Much Else

G-ma is still in town, and I’m letting her stay even though she walked all around the house with dog crap on her shoe. The punchline is that she has an allergic reaction to cleaning supplies, so yours truly got to deal with it after my workday. It was not great to come home to.

On top of that, the dogs all still hate each other. The barking is a bit much. Mom’s headed home next week, and I’m not gonna miss the dog aspect of her visit. Or the dog poop aspect. But we had a pleasant visit together, and I’ll see her soon for my sister’s birthday. 

Bridger’s at his sleepaway camp, and we haven’t heard a peep, so I assume all is well. We dropped him on the 4th, and we’ll get him this weekend. I totally missed all this stuff I was supposed to do before he went because I ignored the vast array of emails they were sending me. The ones asking for a well visit to the doc, immunization records, COVID test, all the forms. Oops. It was a bit hectic, but we got it done. 

We all really miss Bridger being around. Making his noises. There’s no screaming and fighting. 

My mom no longer wants to go on the cruise, so I think I’m gonna take him with me. He’s old enough for it. We’ve been getting along great (granted, he’s not here), and it’ll be educational. I really think we’ll have a good time together. And if not, we’re on the open seas; anything can happen. Kidding.

My sauna came in, and I do it every single day. I know I look a little stupid (based on the picture Tag took of me and keeps giggling at). My head and hands stick out of it, so it’s quite the sight to behold. If I’m honest, yes, it’s 100% ridiculous. But it feels so good. You gotta give it a go.

I needed the sauna big time after I had to take a client to the ER earlier this week. That’s right. It was some excitement. He’s okay, more or less and after 13 years of no doctor's visits, we now know he is a-ok. So, all's well that ends well. 

Oh, and our solar panels saved us over $100 this month! If you can get ‘em.

Colorado Realtor Stuff

Not too much to tell you this week.

We closed on the Georgetown property yesterday, I represented both sides, and it went really smoothly with such a great agent involved (ha). I actually just met the buyers for the first time at the closing, and they were great. Now, I have two weeks to find the seller her new house. So, game on. I think we may have found one that we’re looking at tomorrow.

On another note for another client, I put a low offer in on a home that’s been on the market for a while, so we’ll see how it goes. It’s a 4/4 with 35 acres. If we get it, it’ll be the deal of the century. It’s a nice mountain house in the foothills. I’m surprised it’s not sold yet a sign of the times.

I’ll keep you updated on that. As always, have a great week; I’m gonna snag some sauna time.
