Absolutely Nothing

I held two open houses today. One in a freezing house where only three people showed up, the other house had so many people I lost count after 30! If you've never tried to be nice to 30+ strangers for two hours, let me tell you, it takes a lot outta ya! Just as the last open was almost over, and I was looking forward to the relative peace and quiet of home, one of my fellow Realtor girlfriends called to remind me that tonight was a girls only dinner at her house celebrating my 50th birthday.

Wheee.

The 50th birthday is a cover for one of the girls who recently left our brokerage for another one. We haven't gotten together for a while and this was pretty much the only day all 5 of us could get together. She lives in a rural town some miles away and her husband literally screens the events she can go to... no, really, he does.

There's really no point to this post except to say that I'm just tired and I need to get it posted before midnight.

Gnight!

I'll never understand why women still want to get married -- especially when I read stuff like this about a guy screening his wife's events. It's not that unusual either, more's the pity. Women are still getting the short end of the marriage stick, I think.

Um...This is just so wrong in so many ways. But instead of going on a tirade, I'll just sayhope you get rested and refreshed and that lots of offers come in.

Being nice to 30+ people is exhausting. It's like running a social marathon. Get some rest.

Linda, your blog looks very familiar. I feel right at home here.

I can't imagine being married to a man who is that controlling. That's a form of abuse. I hope she understands that.

And, I hope you all had a good time. :-)
