Another Year Older And Another Year Wiser

I celebrating my 35th birthday this past week by taking off Monday and Tuesday from work to hang out with my wife and get some shelves built in my garage (I’ll take a picture of them when I’m done).  I also needed to buy a car because my BMW was about to run out of warranty and was too expensive to maintain with out it.   Think $190 for an oil change!!! I loved that car but it was time to move on.  I ended up buying a 2012 Ford Focus.  Not a BMW but a good car in it’s own right.

Deal #2 Update

I don’t have anything big to report about the deal just yet.  We have made our changes to the contract and sent it back to the lawyer.  He got it and let us know he sent it to his client to review and sign.  We will see what happens as I have no idea what will happen.  Here is the interesting part….

Through out this entire contract addendum process, my partner has been trying to contact the owner in hopes of negotiating the contract with her instead of the lawyer.  We never got a call back after leaving a handful of messages.  This past weekend we put out some more bandit signs in that area.  These signs had a different number on them because we switched to a google voice account.  You’ll never guess who called?!@?!  Yup the seller of the house we are currently negotiating the contract with who refused to return out calls.

So this deal is still up in the air and could work out or it could fall through.  Either way we’ve learned some good lessons that I’ll save for another post.

  1. Happy Birthday. I also celebrated my birthday this last week and I wonder if our birthdays are on the same day. Mine is the 6th.

    I hope the deal works out.

    P.S. The commentluv doesn’t seem to be working. It’s been showing an Error when I post for the last several months. Just thought you should know.

  2. Happy Birthday, Scott! I hope you had a fun and relaxing one, you deserve it!!

    p.s. Funny story about your latest deal. Very interesting about the call from the other number via your marketing efforts, never a dull moment in this business! 🙂

    1. Post

      I had a very nice, relaxing and fun birthday weekend. My wife took me to the “Terror Behind the Walls” at Eastern State Penitentiary (The Jail where Shawshank Redemption took place). I recommend it if you are into scary stuff.

      As for deal #2, the story gets even more interesting…
