Housing Pimp

My house has been officially on the market for 1 week today and in that week I've had 3 showings.

I'm finding I feel like a virgin on her wedding night with this whole house thing. I get anxious and the pressure of having things 'just so' is insane. It's how I'm wired. I wish I wasn't such a high strung critter, but I am. Princess has yet to hurt me, so all is good.

Showing #1 - Within hours of listing -- Didn't expect it to happen that quick. Princess was getting ready for work when the request came in. She was running around trying to get ready for work and overall straighten up. The house was already fine, but it needed to be as close to perfect as she could get it. She's a chip off the old block. Daisy was picked up and babysat by Cute Boy.

Showing #2 - Monday afternoon - Again Princess was the one home since I was at work. This kid is incredible. Princess was just brushing her teeth when the agent and potential buyers showed up at the door. When I got the panic toned phone call from her, I couldn't help but bust a gut laughing at her. She's out walking the dog trying to waste time until she thinks it's safe to return.

Showing #3 - Last night right in the middle of dinner hour. - Off we go, Princess and Daisy in tow to the local conservation area for a long walk. What a wonderful way to spend an hour. Princess in the elements. Not a common happening anymore.

I have to say the one thing I love about this house business is having the house so clean all the time. I used to be driven to keep an exceptionally clean house, but in recent years I've not taken the time to do so as of late.

Keep your fingers crossed for a successful showing sooner rather than later.
