the Rockies didn't tumble, Gibralter didn't crumble..

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential

I was laid up at home, for part of Monday, and all of today (Tuesday)...  I slept a lot, drank plenty of fluids, etc.  I'd fallen victim to some nasty Rhinovirus that's been running around.

I allowed all of my calls to go straight to voicemail, and returned them as I felt good enough.  I solved a couple of minor dilemmas over the phone, scheduled a walk-through, did some "Superman" stuff.. (oh wait, that was the virus talking)...

But the key is, the world didn't come to an end, without Alan May at the helm of the Evanston Real Estate World.  I know, I can't believe it either.

Feeling a bit better... I imagine I'll be back at the helm tomorrow... lookout world, I'm baaaack!

 Hell, they're only made of clay.

Glad you're feeling better. It's so easy to fall into the trap of thinking that no one else can do our jobs. I know, I think that all the time LOL

Welcome back, Alan! I knew there was a reason I was feeling unmotivated the last couple of days. Now that you're back to running things here on Planet Earth, I can get back to work.

Cheers,

Robin

Alan:

Right back at you with get well wishes.  I sincerely hope that yours is a shorter illness than mine was. Keep the Gatorade flowing.

(I won't say - "Our love is here to stay."  No, I wouldn't do that. It could be misinterpreted.)
