Lions & Buffalo & Baseball, Oh, My!

Lions & Buffalo & Baseball, Oh, My!

We had a fun-filled week where some VERY exciting things happened!

Tag and I came in THIRD at the CrossFit competition. It was AH-mazing. Who knew I was so good at throwing a sledgehammer? Useful? No. Fun? Very. The event was intense, though. I’m proud of us. 

And the boys and I spent a chunk of the weekend together removing a large variety of trophy heads from a client’s house. One was a Cape Buffalo that was incredibly high up on the wall. We didn’t have scaffolding, but Tag’s a star and made some rigging to get it down. 

So we got it off the hook, but it swung wide against Tag’s face and he got a burn right between the eyes. It’s situations like this where, as a good and sympathetic wife, you have to question: Do I attend to his needs or fall over in laughter? I mean, this was Griswoldesque. I chose the latter if you’re wondering. 

We also had to move a FULL LION. My client is obviously a big game hunter, and he shot said lion while it was eating a wildebeest. So he took both the lion and its prey to create his trophy. Pretty incredible and, yes, very not fun to move. 

My boy, B-dog (Bridger), got moved up to the next level for a couple of baseball games, thank you very much. Bye-bye AA, helllllooo AAA. That was great. That said, we watched him play in frigid temps, and I left early. 

So, we’re in the midst of some neighborhood drama. One of the neighbors is cutting down a bunch of trees to make space for a greenhouse to grow hemp. If he was staying within his rights, it’d be fine, but he’s doing some deviating. So, yeah, we’re all a little up in arms about it. I hope it doesn’t get too crazy. 

My Colorado Real Estate Activity

I have a closing coming up, and I’m showing a friend an off-market house in Pine tomorrow. There’s more stuff in the works, and once they start moving, I’ll fill you in. 

In the meantime, we got a bunch of gravel delivered to the big new listing, so the family and I (mostly Adam, though) got to work spreading that all around. Thanks, buddy! He’s studying hard to get his real estate license, which we’re all excited about. 

I took one of my lovely clients and the rest of the family to get some Mexican food, which was so sweet. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: I truly enjoy working with 99% of the people I work with, and relationship-building is one of the perks of this incredibly challenging job. 

So, thanks to you guys for being so amazing and making my job so much more enjoyable!
