As a rule, I sleep with my phone on the nightstand beside my bed. That way, if anyone has urgent Real Estate business, I can take care of it. Working nights at the jobby job means that I am not the agent that typically gets started at 7am. I realize others are so I try to accommodate.
For several weeks, I have been awoken by the phone. In fact, there may have only been one or two times in the last 6 weeks that I have not been startle awake by the alarm or the phone. It was effecting my sleep. Friday, I decided that I was going to sleep in. I anxiously left my phone downstairs so that it would not disturb my sleep. Everything was going to wait.
I was a bit uncomfortable falling asleep, feeling like I might miss something important but I knew my body needed it. Sleep. Finally. Then I was shocked awake with a police style banging on my front door. Still not quite awake, I laid in bed for a few seconds, looked at the clock next to me to realize the power was out. The police knock came again, this time longer.
In my PJs, I darted downstairs and threw the door open to see my neighbor fully dressed, on my front porch. He asked me if I had power. I told him I did not and he asked if I had already called the power company. I looked at my own PJs and imagined my messy bed head and politely told him no. He said he would do it and walked back to his house. I grabbed my phone to check the time. 7:15am. Needless to say, I was unhappy, especially when I could not get back to sleep.
Luckily for me I tried the same tactic on Sunday morning and was able to sleep until nearly noon. It was great and I felt refreshed.
I had a busy morning Saturday, luckily, Ashley helped me out by making me a pasta salad to take to work that night as well used my tofu scramble recipe to make us some nice breakfast burritos for brunch. It was nice to not have to rush to get food prepared myself.
I also was able to whip up some nice Bar B-Que tempeh for my lunch before work on Sunday. It was a nice healthy(ish) lunch for myself.
I am really enjoying the Real Estate market. I have been spending as much time as I can with clients and it is great. I hope they keep coming!
