On our road alone there are 4 homes for sale. I hope the market picks up because I would like to move next year. Have you tried listing it online? Maybe for people who want a vacation home? I hope you find someone great to help sell your home, someone motivated. This time of they year maybe things will pick up since school is ready to get out for the summer.
Well, being that my house is only like $140K you'd think someone would bite. Ugh. Trying to check out Angie's list right now.

Thanks. I hope so, too. I want to get it listed possibly this week! M and me...we had WAY more than "good communication time" LOL *wink wink nudge nudge*

I'm just trying to recuperate. I am NOT going outside. It's 80-something degrees out there, already!! WAY too hot for me, and WAY too soon in the year.
Yesterday, leaving M's, I got up at 4am with him (he has to work early) but I was running on very little sleep-- I think I had like 5-6 hours, and I need at least 8 or even 9. I got the 6am train, got to the airport around 8:30ish, my plane wasn't till 1pm, got into Charlotte at 3, had a 2-hour drive home, and didn't even get to GO home, because ds had a game at 5:30 and I had to go right there, where I paid the caregiver and she took off.
Then ds and I didn't get home till 8ish. I finally got to bed at 9-9:30...didn't even read. Just hit the light and conked right out. I think I got up to pee once, but can't remember. I know M called around 4am but I don't remember that, either. I remember him saying "Did you have a good sleep?" to which I replied "I'm not done yet" and he thought that was hilarious.
I slept till 7 when the alarm went off, but I could easily have slept another hour or two.
I'm taking it easy today and getting my travel-laundry done. Everything smells like smoke when I come home, cause M smokes in the house till like one day before I get there, when he airs it out and opens windows. He doesn't smoke indoors while I'm there. But one day of open windows doesn't do jack, really-- it's in everything.
I have to go over my budget and see if there's grocery money-- but I don't feel like it at ALL.

That's what cracks me up-- at least you acknowledge that there IS a wild side. It's so funny to meet Pagans (and there are lots!) who worship Nature but don't recognize that Nature isn't nice. Hardly ever. I think Nature is very random, and not much often nice. It's about respect and Paying Attention.
Went to M's church with him on Sunday! I had a good time. He's such a weird combination of propriety and irreverance, I never know what to do or how to act! So a couple weeks ago I said to him one time "Let us eat lettuce" and now he sings it in this Mass-type voice, with an "Amen" after it...so the priest at church starts to sing "Let us..." and I looked over at M with That Look and said, under my breath, "Don't you DARE", and that cracked him right up
I have to say, though, I'm just conservative enough that it was nice seeing everybody dressed well in there. The lady in front of us had a baby, probably 2-3m old, that had a beautiful white lace dress on with a little baby-sized white cardigan. So cute! I thought she was gettting baptized, but nope. Just a church dress.
