Saw a mover at 7:30am, and a realtor at 7pm.

Tomorrow, I see two movers and a realtor.

Maybe I'll even see that realtor and raise you another realtor. We'll see.




The realtor I saw today was greeeeeeeeeeeeen.* However, that's of little concern, since she belongs to Willie Miranda.**

Sadly, she (like so many realtors working on Schenectady homes) wants 7%. However, WM puts so much into marketing that it's probably worth it. I wouldn't be surprised if they'd be willing to work on a sliding scale based on performance. 7% ain't so bad if they can sell it in 30 days.

I see a "normal" realtor tomorrow. We'll see what happens.




The estimator I saw this morning was very nice. I'm looking at somewhere around $3k, which is about the same amount I was looking at with the other movers. The other movers, btw, stopped contacting me after I sent them links to the squeakywheel.com complaints.

Everything's going so fast. I've still got so much left to do.

I have to choose a mover tomorrow, if I want to get a ticket for for Pault to fly up here on the 26th, and be out by the 29th.

I don't know if any of this is even feasible. The movers can do it, sure... but can I do it? I DON'T KNOW!!

Deep breaths and baby steps.




I'm getting me hair cut and coloured Thursday night, and Saturday is for packing and a going-away party.***

Speaking of going away parties, the office holiday party was a SHAM.

Holiday, my arse. They got me a cake and a card and everything.****

I'm going to miss them.

*beat* Holy schamoley. I have to finish packing up my office, too.




I'm rambling now. I've nothing of any real interest to say, and no eloquent way of saying it. And I'm bloody tired.

So I'm off to bed.

Sweet dreams when you get there, folks :)

* Green as in "new and inexperienced," not green as in "wicked witch of the west."
** Willie Miranda is pretty darned smart. I wouldn't be surprised if his system were to go nationwide before too long.
*** Michele's awesome.
**** OK, not everything; just a cake and a card.
****** The kitties, btw, are getting along rather well. I've found Gracie's weakness (roast beast) and am using it against her to persuade her to the dark side cat carrier. Which reminds me-- Gracie attacked me last night. Flat out attacked me. But just my arm, and gently and with great love. It was the most bizarre behaviour I've seen in a housepet... ever, I think.
****** That's it, that's the end of the joke.

I'm feeling all kinds of: PuzzleDonkey 2.11, I hate you
What I hear: computer fan philosophizing in white noise

{{hugs}} don't know how you are doing it all. just reading your stress makes my hives flare up.

and i have a cat how will for now good reason at a particular time just decide i am Prey. i know it's playful and loving, but being an outdoor guy, he never learned the concept of gentle. i take it as a great sign of love and being accepted into the pride.
