You would think that being in a customer service/sales environment that I would be interacting with people all day every day. And perhaps I am, but it has been like in a dream, a surreal dream.
I was surprised to recently acknowledge that I have been just going through the motions, cast in this role of a Southern Belle adrift in the corn fields of the American Heart land. I have made few, if any, friends. Just a few acquaintances as I do my time up here.
The past few weeks have been a wind whirl of activity. Meeting with inspectors, appraisers, Realtors, plumbers and in the immediate future more Realtors, electricians, and concrete people! It's impossible to operate as if I am submerged underwater moving in slow motion with deliberate squirming. I have emerged from under water and have climbed the ladder to the top of the high dive where I take dive after dive after dive. And the occasional back flip.
The Realtor who is going to sell this house is a character. Already I know that she is going to be great for me. Not only as the agent for my home, but as someone I can lean on, ask questions without feeling like a nim-rod, and she has already offered to help me do the fix up work, if needed!
No man is an island, and I have tried to not become attached to anyone nor anything in this area. I do not think I started out that way, but it evolved.
I'm climbing back up the ladder for a huge swan dive right now.
