Had a Realtor come by today ....just to do a walkthru...and give us an idea of what we should work on and so that he can give us an assessment as to how much he can sell it for....lovely Dh made the appointment yesterday afternoon THEN called me to let me know...so I had less than 24 hours to get the house ready...needless to say I was less than pleased...considering we also have a Wedding to attend today..and I had a lot of stuff I needed to do for that. The walkthru went well...and we are all spiffyed up for the Wedding. It should be really nice....it's an elderly couple we know from the neighborhood. Actually w don't know her very well. But the Groom is a dear friend of ours. He lost his wife a couple of years ago. Then he met this wonderful woman and they are getting married today. They are having a new house built so that they can start fresh...We'll miss him when he moves...but his daughter is buying his house so he'll still be connected thru her. He was quite the catch...all the little old ladies came a calling after his wife died. I know that kind of sound crass, maybe, but ...he's a really good man...and was a wonderful husband to her. I think other women saw that. He was also VERY lonely after she died...they were VERY close. They say that those who were in really good marriages do tend to marry quickly afterward. They miss being in a close, commited relationship. And if you're elderly and just lost your spouse..you know how finite your time here really is...so no reason to dilly dally IYKWIM?
