The carpet installers arrived at 8:00 AM to add the last of the trim work and try to fix the cable tv connections that had been dismantled when they installed the carpet on Tuesday. The trim looks great but the cable is not operating correctly. But it is not worth a fuss or a Comcast service call. I am still planning to leave at the end of March for Utah. That is a bit fuzzy as a quick sale could bring that plan to a screeching halt. With my luck, I'll get to Utah and set up a great base camp and then the house will sell. It would be hard to be upset with that outcome though. I am ready for an adventure and need some down time so time will tell.
The carpet installers finished in about an hour including a huge favor for me. They moved my huge solid oak entertainment center to the garage so the dining room was ready for final staging. I was extremely grateful for their help as I was not able to find anyone who could do that for me. After they left it was back to work for me....
After another two hours of work, I was feeling frazzled and frantic that I would not be finished before the 3:00 deadline. The doorbell rang and I remember muttering to myself, "Now who is that?" I opened the door to my Auntie who was holding a bucket of cleaning supplies. She greeted me, with a warm " Show me what to do!!" Bless her heart she vacuumed and dusted the entire upstairs and lower level of the house. I finished the final staging and cleaning outside.
The only downside is a lot of crapola got tossed into the garage..... another item on the to do list.... DAMN!!
The Photographer and Realtor arrived early at 2:30... the realtor helped me move my trailer Lolita out of the driveway and we cleaned the driveway!! It was a gorgeous sunshiny day so even though the landscape isn't green yet, the photo's should present the house in a favorable light. After the photos, I signed the contract for the real estate listing and I collapsed on the couch to watch my favorite basketball team, the Gonzaga University bulldogs who are ranked number 1 in the nation. While I was still working I was a guest speaker in a number of undergraduate and graduate education classes for Gonzaga so the team is near and dear to my heart.
So remember, the cable fiasco.... It seems the high interest due to the #1 ranking of Gonzaga moved the game to prime time on ESPN. With no cable TV and no energy to move from the couch I missed the game. But the Bulldogs didn't disappoint. They easily won without my help. I will have to save a little energy on game days to make it to a sports bar and watch the Gonzaga games.
Well that was it.
I was one tired puppy....
