So read the sign in front of my house; in fact, a picture of last year is this: |
The good news is, I was delighted when the realtor called saying we had an offer. "Looks good," I texted after she'd emailed it to me. The price was $3,000 less than our asking price but I knew to expect it.
The bad news is, the realtor talked me into countering with a higher price. The realtor on the other end did not counter offer; instead, he said he would show his clients some other places on the market...
It had to happen: I took the leap. After eight years of living here, becoming part of the community, I put my Cheyenne, WY, home on the market. I found out I can list online with ForSaleBOwner.com and signed up with the company. Since I am friends with several realtors, I’ve also alerted them that I’m willing to work with anyone who is an agent for buyer.
Once my son and family announced they were moving to Texas for professional reasons, I knew I would downsize: they’d often used my hom...
Googles is a problem in China. I only just now figured out, if I reply to someone's email, it has a better chance of arriving.
We are in Xi'an, a touristy city famous for an 11th cent. emperor's terra cotta army that accompanied him to his grave. Today it is "the world's largest underground military museum."
We are staying in a four-star hotel. It has no closet or drawer space for clothes, only four wood-mounted clothes hooks with a few hangers. The toilet paper is stingy, and the tis...
A family member emails that my writing is "crap" and that she will refuse to read my WTE feeds from now on. Since all along she has had the option of deleting my stuff unread, I stop to wonder over the urge to insult me. Name-calling is really a short-cut version of blaming. The speaker refuses to look at her own thoughts, feelings, and motivations and focuses instead on the "faults" of the other.
Relationships are a lot of work. We have to get ourselves to overcome--to forgive--not onl...?
|South Of Wheatland In Wyoming|
|Though I now live in Wyoming, I make frequent return trips to California with visits to travel club members along the way. At home I play classical guitar, enjoy gardening and cooking, and participate in group yoga. Getting together with family and friends is high on my agenda. I value people who write or make music and love it when my adult children and their offspring play their instruments, sing songs with me, or discuss what they read and write. Such gatherings help me cope with the losses in my life, which have been severe. Next year I hope to visit family in Germany.|
