I am soooo Done!

Selling a house is haaaard wooork! Especially when people call, and call, and call, and confirm, and reconfirm, and then just never show up. Blows a whoooole freakin afternoon! And it’s not just once it’s like four times in the past five days. One guy called Saturday though, and they actually showed up three three hours later, and within 20 minutes of when they said they would!  I was very impressed!

We have another lady hopefully showing up today, but she also tried to come out Thursday, and Friday, but just couldn’t pull it together with the other person she was coming with. Very flaky.  We found out through the internetz she ‘manages’ a cleaning company.  So we’re hoping it isn’t some kind of scam where they come and pretend to try and sell the house to an ‘investor’, and then say the reason they didn’t buy was it was just too dirty, ‘but we can professionally clean your house for you for $500!!! Take care of that yard work for you for another $500!’ Blah, blah, blah.  Is it just me, or would that be a good scam to drum up business?  Although, right now I have to say the place looks pretty dang squeaky clean, and we have just a sparse amount of stuff here’ since we trailered a boodle of things to CO, and half of our things are in storage. 

In yarny things… yesterday was Christmas Hat Sunday.  I got most of it done, and then finished off the decreases this morning. Just so much to do with keeping up the house, and the yard, and packing, and meeting people. I have also been plotting and planning some other knitting. On one of my knitting groups they give preemie things to a certain hospital, and I am challenging myself to make 20 sets of booties, 20 hats, and 5 or more 28 inch blankets for the preemies by the end of next month.  It should be do-able because preemie items are small and they go so quick.  I’m really pushing myself to do the booties, because so many people dislike doing them, because when you’re finished one… you have to start another one just exactly the same. In the knitting world it’s known as Second Item Syndrome. Some people can stand making multiple items, and some people just hate it!

Well, we’re showing the house twice today, so I should really get off of here and go do last minute spot checking, and make sure everything is ‘good enough’. Thank goodness we don’t have a realtor helping us, because they’d be wanting a bowl of fruit, and air freshener, and all kinds of other perfection. Meh.

    I know what you mean about “second item syndrome” I’ve been knitting cardi, hat, mitten and bootees sets, although they are fast to knit up they can get a bit tedious. I found out yesterday a friend is expecting baby number 11 next January so that’ll be more baby clothes to knit . Just not enough hours in the day!

    Flaky people seem the new norm. Kind of crazy, and very disappointing, but even with library events or a movie… if it says it starts at 7pm, people won’t SHOW until 7pm (or later). It drives me crazy. I say close the doors. If they aren’t there on time, tough cookies… it’d teach a LOT of people to be on-time.

      Yep, and I’ve been on the other side of that where we’ve been late, and been told ‘sorry can’t help you.’, and as much as it sucks, it sure made dh make sure we’ve been on time a whole lot more lately. I don’t mind so much if people are going to be late if they just call and say that they are so many minutes away, but when you call and make an appointment for 3, and then call at 4:30 and say sorry, but can we stop by at 5:30, and then call at 6:45 and ask is it alright to stop by around 9, and then just don’t show or call again…. well, that takes the cake! 😛
