Is it time for lunch, yet?

By
Real Estate Agent with Jameson Sotheby's International Realty

The holiday (as it were) is over... and we're back to work.

Monday was crazed leading into the 4th of July, as we tried to get everything done leading into the holidy.  Then Tuesday, was "off" (still managed to negotiate a contract)... spent the afternoon/evening calming the puppy...  and now it's Wednesday morning... ready to get back to work.

The phone started ringing at 8:00.... it was a solicitation call... and I'm diving right into it.  I have to set up the inspection, contact the attorney... file the paperwork... (I know, I know... poor me)... it's as though there was no day off at all.

Welcome back to the land of the working.  Time for lunch, yet?

Hi Alan, 

We have to "steal" time to enjoy those special moments. Our time is not our own but that realization makes it bearable ....to a point!!

I don't eat lunch, usually, but it's 1244pm as I read this so the answer is yes.

And my lunch box is a Redskins box, by code.

Alan, if we have to be working - doing things that will generate a paycheck is the way to go.  Congratulations.

Yep, Redskins.  This is one quarter of one room of my basement. 

The other three quarters look the same, but different.

By code.

Oh, all the photos are signed.

And the table has Redskin and Dallas balls.

The Redskins win every game.

By code.

Good morning Alan.

I understand, yesterday started early and continued until late evening.  Today is not going to be any different...

This makes me want to hunker down, work like a maniac, then get out my Roy Rogers lunchbox.

Alan- I have no idea what you might have in your lunch box, but my lunches are a protein shake of green hemp powder, bananas, pineapple, chia seeds, spinach and coconut water. Wanna trade??

Everybody's lunch box may contain something a little different but we all have our own contributions…
