I feel I am back a square one, back where I was a year ago when I launched my new career. On the plus side, at this point a year ago, I did not even know whether it was possible for me to help anyone buy or sell a house, but after 10 "ends" as we call them (i.e. being on either the buying or selling end of a deal) I now know I can do it. On the minus side, the real estate market here in Southern Ontario is a whole different ball game to what it was a year ago. Have I chosen the wrong time to become a real estate agent? To go out on my own and work for myself? My old job with a guaranteed salary looks quite tempting at the moment, even though deep down I know I don't want to be back there. As several people have said to me this week, if you throw enough sh*t against the wall something is bound to stick! So imagine me, that's what I am doing .....throwing shi*t and plenty of it!!
Anyway while I have so much time on my hands, I have been very domesticated, taken up knitting again, something I haven't done for quite a few years - making a jumper for my new nephew for Christmas (thrifty as well as crafty), baking bread !! and making all our dinners from scratch. Homemade soups and pasta dishes. Kind of morphing from home seller to suzy homemaker.... The house hasn't been this spick and span for a while.
This morning I was full of good intentions, was going to head outside to rake leaves - its quite handy here as you can rake them to the curb and then the City sends round a truck to scoop them all up. However, it looks miserable and rainy today so that's probably not going to happen. I will carry on printing off my newsletter which I deliver around my neighbourhood.....you know...more sh*t. See ya!
