Thirteen Thursday Meme

Thirteen Things I Don't Understand

1. How to anything on this blog but post.
2. Why God created mosquitos.
3. Why people enjoy bowling.
4. Why a football is called a ball when it is shaped nothing like a ball.
5. How to tie those special knots that sailors and firefighters know how to do. But I really want to learn.
6. How to get my children to move out of my house.
7. The big deal about reality shows.
8. Why clients ask "What If" questions to me all day long when it is so obvious that I want to hit them upside their heads every time they ask me "What If".
9. Why my clients think its perfectly okay to just walk into my office without an appointment and expect me to stop whatever I'm doing to answer their "what if" questions.
10. Why people put so much faith into their Pastors when they really are just faulted humans like us.
11. Why spouses cheat instead of working out issues within their marriage.
12. Why I can't sell my house even though it's been on the market since April.
13. Why jelly doughnuts are so bad for you when they taste sooooo good.

Maybe you can't #12 because you haven't #6...

Plus - the market is very screwy right now and areas like ours (too far into Suffolk to be convenient to Nassau, but not far enough to be considered East End) are not as desirable as they once were.

The twins are turning 26 on Wednesday the 19th and for their birthday present they are both getting luggage.....think they'll get the hint?...not that I haven't told them directly to their faces that they must leave.

forget the luggage. For their birthday, get them big cardboard boxes!

stop feeding them. stop doing their laundry. charge them rent and half the utilities, cable, trash, like a charm.

i like watching the show that takes a house that hasn't sold, they do a make-over (repaint, get rid of frilly stuff, extra furniture, clutter) to make the home look more neutral and appealing to a wide number of people. it's amazing what can happen when you take down the lace curtains and repaint the pink living room to a nice coffee tan and replace the dog pee-stained carpet ;-)...p.s. get a new agent asap. obviously, the current one isn't doing enough to sell your house.

keep us posted. :)

Jelly donuts are bad for you?

Great list. These things make me go Hmmmmmm too. Well, except the client clients ask "how in, how long will it take to rebuild my house, or how long till the cheque comes, or how long will it take for you to settle my injury...asked all within an hour of their loss

yeah, I'm not sure about those mosquitos either! I really don't think there's a use for them!

I'm totally with you on #1! And 2 and 3. As for 6, did you see the Dr. Phil show where he had a couple who couldn't get any of their kids or grandkids to move out of their MOBILE HOME. While the show was on, he showed a live picture of a truck driving up to their place and physically moving out all of the kids' stuff. Seeing their faces was hilarious!

Hey, don't feel too bad about just posting. I can upload pics, but I am begging my teenage daughter to help get some pizazz on my site. But the edgy look they've shown me is out and so is the finding nemo look. Oh well, perhaps someday they will find me the stuff I'm looking for...Smiles and Hugs

#10 is a good question. I assume it's our constant need to put things off onto other people so we can avoid looking at ourselves. And #12? Well, maybe it's time to sign up for one of those home shows, Sell This House! After you kick the kids out, of course. :-p

Enjoy your visit to CT. I've been to CT once in my life and found it absolutely beautiful!
