Meals were simple Wed: usual bfst choices, lunch leftovers, and dinner for just DD and I:
On the car front, the check finally came in the mail for DD's totaled car. She put down $500 on another up in Manchester, now we have to make arrangements to deposit the check, get another made out to the car dealership, and schedule pick up. I am thinking Mon morning.
Last night,we had some terrific thunderstorms blow through around 9 p.m., the time I am getting ready for bed. I ended up watching a tv show with DD, staying up until about 10:30. When I turned in (DD stayed to finish the show), DD brought my cell phone to my night table, and I noted a voice mail message, sent @ 8:50 p.m. that apparently, I didn't hear go off. The message was. " Hi Carol, this is XX, your neightbor from down teh street on X road. I am a realtor with XX. I have a family who are on vacation in VT, leaving tonight to come to X town, breaking their vacation early to come see some rentals here. They are desperate to find a rental in X town, so that their child can attend the schools here. I am estimating that we'd be at your place tomorrow, Thurs between 3:30 and 4 p.m. I am calling to confirm this appointment. Please contact me . . etc."
I was miffed. Really? an 8:49 p.m. call is OK? also, I specified with the realtor who represents the LL (same realty firm as this realtor)that I'd need 24 hours notice, minimally, for a confirmed appointment.
So, this morning at 5:50 a.m., I texted the realtor, as she requested, advising her that while today won't work, tomorrow between 11:30-2:30 or 3:30-4:30 was ok, please confirm and advise,
We ARE still living here, after all. I'm not trying to be difficult-but am I being overly sensitive to this?
I need my coffee! Lots more packing to do, I need to make several business calls today, most associated with the impending move. I await a confirmation call from this LL's plumber about coming out today (have waited 1 week) to address 3 dripping faucets, 1 shower that drips heavily, non stop, like it can't be shut off. @@ we are on a well/septic. Sigh.
