I wrote this off and on during an Open earlier today! I sort of got interrupted before I could post it!
If I thought I was addicted to Active Rain, that's nothing compared to my bond with my Blackberry!
I arrived at my Open House about 10 minutes early, went through the place turning on lights, and noticed that in the back sunroom, there were a bunch of spider webs and leaves in the small sunroom at the back of the house. No problem, I thought, I'll just phone favorite colleague and blog buddy, Cati Bannier. She lives a few blocks from here and can drop by with a broom and dustpan.
But Wait! I'd forgotten my second-best friend and constant companion, that little navy blue and black miraculous piece of technology! (Just for the record, Willie the hyperactive Labradoodle puppy comes in first)
Holy yikes! Three hours of being unhooked and out of touch, at least by phone. And I didn't have time to run home to get it.
I am into hour two of my Open and am noticing physical symptoms.
- A rapid heart beat
- An uneasiness in my stomach
- Excessive perspiration, although the central air conditioning is performing beautifully
I do have my little laptop, so at least I can check email and blog between buyers and agents coming through.
OK, Pat! Take a deep breath! A car just pulled up and people are getting out.
Get over it!
