Taking a break from my typical “Lake Wallenpaupack real estate” subject, I decided to comment on something I often hear from my customers.
“Do you ever sleep?”
Of course, we all sleep – but it is not uncommon for me to stay awake late, unable to fall asleep. I can’t stand just laying there, so I check my email, check the Pike/Wayne MLS, or update my real estate blog. I may answer emails…so it should not surprise people if I send them email at 2:38 a.m. Sometimes I fall asleep early but wake up at odd hours…
Or I may take a break from real estate completely and read a true crime story on CourtTV.com (everyone
thinks my fascination with true crime is disturbing), a John Grisham novel, or a classic Agatha Christie whodunnit. I also like to read classics like Rebecca or Gone with the Wind — I just finished Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
I might go downstairs and hope for an old CSI or Forensic Files episode, or check out Turner Movie Classics in hopes of catching Jimmy Stewart, Bogie, or Cary Grant. Sadly, the middle of the night is no time to watch The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, my favorite western; the odd music will wake the kids and THEN I’ll really have trouble… (but that odd music makes a GREAT ring tone on my phone!!!)
I suppose it is foolish of me to not rest when I can – in the morning after my two oldest get on the bus, I need to log in to the Pennsylvania Virtual Charter School to start my youngest child’s education – I school her at home for various reasons.
My gal will often accompany me on appointments, wearing her very own WEICHERT REALTORS – Paupack Group name badge – she is my Junior Executive Assistant. She especially loves it when my clients have children with them; but she also likes to assist my clients by pointing out how nice the kitchen is or how cool the family room is.
At any rate, yes, I do sleep – but sometimes, when I can’t – don’t be surprised to find a nocturnally delivered email in your inbox!
