And The Realtor Issues Contine

Our new realtors have been on the job for 27 days now. And, well I’ll be going in for meeting number 3 tomorrow. Not only will I be meeting with my agent, but I’m not leaving until I meet with the broker.
This is just getting ridiculous. I had a 45 minute open house scheduled for today and low and behold the agent showed up 10 minutes late for said open house. Are you F’ing kidding me. Now this makes 2 out of the 3 open houses that the realtor has been late to. As for the third one I’m not sure what time they showed up as something came up and I had to leave well before they were to arrive. Although, with the pattern I’m seeing I’m going to go ahead and day they were probably late for that one as well.
Needless to say I’ve called my agent and left 2 messages, and have yet to hear back from him. And, well you know things are getting bad when the husband is now calling the agent and leaving a message as well from Afghanistan. Yeah, realtor get it together, because if I have to stay here instead of moving back East to babysit you to make sure you’re doing your job, well let’s just say no one, and I mean no one is going to be happy.

Manicure Ridiculousness

Got a manicure today. Not sure why since I can do a better job myself. I had to tell the girl to stop when she was chopping the corners of my nails off. Why would you do that? You can’t possibly that’s what I want when my nails are clearly squared off.
I asked for 1 nail to have stripes and a heart on it, and well it was a disaster. I’ll be removing the massacre they created from my nail and doing it myself.

Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds Recap

 

On Wednesday Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds played a free concert on the lawn of the art museum here in town. I’ve known Sister Sparrow, AKA Ms Arliegh, and one of the Dirty Birds, AKA Jackson, Arliegh’s brother well pretty much forever. I’ve seen them perform one other time years ago.  It somehow never worked out that I was where they were performing. They have played in Denver and other parts of Colorado several times, but again with the drive time to get there and everything else it just wasn’t doable to see them. So, I will say I was pretty stoked that they performed here in town.

                                                                                             

 

A little Sister Sparrow, and The Dirty Birds rocking the downtown area.

And, I’m happy to say there was an amazing crowd turnout on a Wednesday night for The Band’s first visit to town. Yeah, we know how to have fun on a Wednesday night in this town.

Jackson rocking it out on the harmonica. Yeah, the boy is amazing on that thing. Go ahead and ask how many he has, I’ll tell you this it’s a lot. I think for Christmas I’m going to get him the party pack from the dollar store. It’d be a funny gift.

Jackson and Sasha putting on a show for us.

And, in case you wondering if he really can play the harmonica as well as I say, well take a listen.

Ok, and little story for you, did you see that crazy guy walk by during the video.  Well yeah, he was trying to join the band or something.  I think all of us in the audience were waiting for him to do oboe thing crazy. Luckily he just got angry and annoyed that he couldn’t join in and left.

Seriously, these guys rock and I’m not just saying that because I know them.  You can check them out on their website and get tour information. Also all of their albums are available on iTunes.

Thanks for a great show guys and it was awesome to hang out with you. Can’t wait to see you perform again.

 

 

 

My Apologies

I know I said I’d post a recap of last night’s concert. Unfortunately I was a complete bum today and did no uploading of videos and pictures. Therefore no way to post the blog for you. It will be done tomorrow. I can not afford another day of being a complete bum. I have too much to do.
So, I hope you check my post tomorrow.

Get Ready Wyoming Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds Are Rolling Into Town

I’m super pumped, excited, amped up, and a million other adjectives for tomorrow night.
Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds are rolling into town for a concert. Who are these Dirty Birds you may ask. Well, just one if the coolest bands out there. They have a jazz, blues, rock, funk, horn section type sound. And then you add in Sister Sparrows maxing voice and well you’ve got pure awesomeness.
I actually personally know Sister Sparrow and one of the Dirty Birds. I can tell you stories, but I won’t. They are just some really amazingly talented people ice known for years. Who am I kidding the entire family is pretty talented.
I’ve been listening to their music the last few days to get myself pumped up not that I needed any help for that. But, I can’t wait to hear Arleigh belt out a little Freight Train and Another Ride, 2 of my favorite songs. Add in Jackson on the harmonica and yeah I’m going to be screaming I knew them when…
Stay tuned for pics and maybe some video from their performance tomorrow night. Check them out on iTunes they are a lot of fun.

A Sunday Afternoon With Ari

Yesterday, Sarah asked me if I wanted some Ari time. Uhmmmm yes please! He’s definitely one of my favorite 2 year olds.
When I got to the house he was napping, but when he woke up he came running to me, jumped in my lap, and gave me one of his awesome Ari hugs.
We followed up the hugs with some reading of books. Like 10 of them. After getting our book time we headed outside for a bike ride. We made it 3 houses down before he was done and ready to ride his big sister’s bike. By ride I mean sit on it and ring the bell, it’s all about the bell.
After our bike time we headed in for a drink and a snack, and then it was back out to play some ball and pretend to dig in the yard.
It was a great afternoon with my little buddy. I’m definitely going to miss the entire Wolfpack Family. That is a thing I hate about moving is the leaving the amazing people you meet.
Ari’s sister, Sadie and I have a date later this week to celebrate her birthday, that I missed while I was in NY. I’m looking forward to our day.

I Don’t Want A Yard

I was hoping to get away without mowing the lawn this week. That did not happen. As I came home from yoga I took one look at the yard, and said, “Oh Crap.” Mowing the lawn was going to have to happen. We have a Open House scheduled for tomorrow so having a yard that looks like crap not really an option.
I spent and hour and half mowing the lawn, and itching like crazy.
I’m still a believer in letting the grass just die. I mean we’d save on our water bill, and gas because I wouldn’t have to use any in the mower. Oh and we’d save money on my allergy meds because I wouldn’t have to take a truck load before and after mowing the lawn. Rocks would look nice or hey I’m not opposed to Astro Turf.
Note to husband next house we buy no grass.
