New York State of Mind

So as of lately, there has only been one thing on my mind:  New York!  I just want to be there.  I just want this house to sell and quickly.  I will tell you, having to have our house look like a showroom at all times is really stressful!  Last weekend, we had an open house and so we knew when to really have the house ready so that was easy.  We took the dogs and Mya to Ryder’s mom’s house for the day.  That was easy.  And yesterday, I got it into my head that people aren’t going to come and look at the house on a weekday.  So I relaxed a little.  This morning I took Mya to the park.  The weather was so beautiful.  We had so much fun together, until she fell and bonked her head really hard!  🙁  We had a relaxing trip to the grocery store, which is almost unheard of in our household.  But while I was there, Ryder, who is in N.J. for work right now, called and said that  a realtor wanted to come and see our house.  WHAT?!!!  I instantly felt like I was going to throw up.  I had to rush through the store as fast as I could, get home, put the groceries up, get the house ready, get the dogs in the car, all while trying really hard to keep Mya from pulling toys out and leaving them all over the house.  By the time we got into the car, I felt like a total maniac!  And it was lunch time and Mya was saying, “Eat, eat eeeeeeat!!”  So what did we do?  Something we never, ever do!  We ate fast food!  In the car!  With the dogs.  LOL  Mya thought it was fun though.  I put her in the front seat to eat and it was like a little picnic.  So I am just really ready to be in N.Y.  I want to be there while it’s warm before the winter hits again.  I want Mya to experience Central Park in the summer with all of the free concerts and fun places to go.  I just want to be there!  I’ve got Mya saying, “Buy our house.  New York!”  hehe  She sometimes whines and cries when she’s tired and she’ll throw, “Neeewwww Yoooorrrrkkk!”  in there somewhere.  It’s hilarious.  Ryder and I look at apartments on-line constantly finding apartments that we love and just want to go and move into, but we can’t until this house sells.  So if you know anyone who is looking for a 3 bedroom, 3 bath house with  a bonus room with a kitchenette, outdoor living with a fireplace, lots of upgrades, limestone exterior, on the green belt with lots of really cool neighbors, email me!!  “I will sell this house today!”  I often feel like the realtor from American Beauty when I’m vacuuming our house each day.  😉
