Snowflakes, Houses and Books

March 29th, 2012 at 02:55 pm

The money stuff first. I received a $3 payment from Pinecone today. I also redeemed Swagbucks for a $25 iTunes e-gift card. I was saving up for the Amazon one, but decided with today's deal it was better to get the iTunes. I will definitely give this to one of my daughter's for Christmas!! So I'm left with over 500 Swagbucks which is more than enough to get my an Amazon gift card on April 1. Yipee!!

House news. No showings today. No reponses from the two showings yesterday. However, we have a showing tomorrow!! Keep the showings coming I say. Fingers crossed there is an offer this weekend. I know that sounds like great expectations, but what can it hurt really? The hardest part is keeping the house tidy. I've done more laundry recently because I don't want our dirty clothes/towels hanging out in our closets for showings. I'm tossing those things in the washer each day and then running a load as it gets full (which is about every other day).

I'm reading The Great Gatsby for the first time. Very enjoyable. It's a classic and it has come up several times recently for me, so I decided it was time. Anyone have a favorite classic book? I've always loved To Kill A Mockingbird.

The Swagbuck links above are referral links.

    I'll have to take a look at the iTunes card on SB - I have enough SBs for my 5 April AGC's, plus 2 in May ... but can always use iTunes credit Smile

    My favorite classic book - Jane Eyre. I remember staying up until 2am reading it in high school, and still read it every few years.

    Thanks for mentioning the I-tunes card, I snagged one as well. I normally check the sales everyday but it must have slipped my mind.

    Watership Down, I think, is my favorite classic, with Lord of the Flies running a close second.

    I wonder if you've checked with your realtor for feedback from the realtor who showed your house. Their client's feedback can be valuable for any detail they noticed. One of the best marketing tools our realtor used was Open House for realtors which is called a 'Caravan' in our community.

    We put out plates of cookies that looked homemade [from DKs favorite bakeshop]. We got excellent feedback and made some changes. Familiar with extra details our home offered garnered more showings and the house sold much faster than any of us expected.

    When I was in grad school I wrote a paper on the imagery in The Great Gatsby. I love that book. I've read it at least seven times.

    I re-read Gatsby when I was in the hospital a few months ago, and it still leads to a terrific read. It had been many years since I read it last! We are also showing our place for a potential new rental tenant to live in our house with our EXCELLENT tenant (one is leaving, and we are sad because she has been amazing). I wish we had some insurance that only reliable people would call... lately it feels like we must have been advertising in a drug dealers' weekly news or something! Good luck in showing your place!
