My realtor is scheduling another open house for Sunday. Last week's only brought one person out of the woodwork and he was a developer from out of town. I knew that one wasn't going to be productive--don't know why, I just knew. But I do feel better about this next one. We'll see.
I worked on throwing away junk and sorting stuff for Shawn's yard sale yesterday. Plus I finished the interview and sent it to my old boss. AND I talked to AT&T and got everything straightened out. So I'll be able to sign on from McDonald's which is just a mile from my house.
Right now I'm on AT&T WiFi at Barnes and Noble about 20 minutes from home. That's because I had to drop off my car near here. I'm in a rental--a really cheap one that doesn't have automatic locks or windows and I hate it. Well, I can tolerate it for a day and a half. My car will cost around a thousand dollars--worse case scenario. Best case will be around 400 or so.
Lots to do. I feel overwhelmed. Wish I had relatives nearby to help me. But at least some friends will do so. I'm going to force money on two of them, because I know they need it even more than I do.
Today my friend Nancy is going to meet me for coffee in a few hours, so I'll stay here and work until then. Or maybe browse the stacks to get some books for my trip. I love booksores...the smell, the excitement of finding a new author, the people... I spoke to a retired guy earlier who was fascinating. He was looking at an atlas, and it was opened to a map of Germany. I asked if he was going there, and he said no, although he'd been there many times. He was having a discussion with a friend, and was trying to settle an arguement. We then compared notes about places we've been, and it was a lovely conversation. I love these serendipitous moments of life.
