What Does A Snowed In Real Estate Agent Do All Day?

I live in Westfield, Massachusetts and we are having one HECK of a winter.  Today was yet another snow day, no school, snowed in at home with my daughters.  Days like this give a real estate agent a lot of options, for example:

#1- stay in PJ's and watch old musicals all day

#2- work from home

#3- clean the house

#4- nap

#5- chat with friends

#6- go outside and play

#7- read

I was in an a la carte mood today and took a few different options.

 

Option #1- I hope this isn't too much information for you, but I love jammie days!  I didn't, however, turn on the TV because of

Option #2 - I worked from home, as I often do.  I emailed everyone on my buyer list, I updated my email drip campaigns on my website, I spoke with a buyer (Thanks Clint!), I wrote a press release and I blogged

Option #3 - is a work in progress.  I don't like housechores so I take it in little bites.  Cleaned the kitchen then emailed, folded laundry then blogged...you get the picture.  There is still a pile of laundry the size of the Berkshire Mnts staring at me as I write this, but I will get to it!

Option #4 - don't feel drowsy today, so I get to stay productive..even in my PJs!

Option # 5 - Enter my new favorite addiction:  twitter.  Today I chatted with friends old and new in business and personal matters.  I am making contacts, broadening my referral network and LEARNING a ton!

Option # 6 - Thank goodness, my girls didn't feel like going outside, because I am too snug here on the couch!

Option # 7 - I didn't read my book (although it is terrific: Host by Stephanie Meyers) but I DID read a lot of blogs and motivational materials to keep me focused on staying positive.

My daughters have been cooperating and working beside me all day.  I think it is a great way for them to grow to understand how much effort it takes to be a working mom.  It also teaches them to be flexible and have a good work ethic.  They can see their mom is working, but I can take a break here and there to be with them at lunch or over a book.  Speaking of which...gotta run: the youngest wants help with a puzzle!

I have to say it wasn't much different here in Baltimore. I did make a few calls to clients but for the most part. PLAY PLAY PLAY

I would eliminate #3...snow days are treats so I don't think I would opt for house cleaning, everything else sounds great! I hope you enjoyed it!
