It was my birthday week and after helping to finish on my buddies house my week began with Michele taking me out to Outback for birthday dinner. She always spoils me so much.
Tuesday night at pool league was another successful one, I defeated an equally matched player by a lot. We only have a few weeks left and I think we are not in third place. If we go to playoffs and win, we have two more rounds of playoffs before we could get an all expense paid trip to Vegas for the national finals.
My actual birthday was Wednesday and I was able to enjoy that on the golf course with my brother in the league that we have joined.
Thursday morning I was off to Iowa where I am still today. I have spent a lot of time just visiting with Mom and family, playing around the farm with the new baby calves and hanging out at the casino where I finally had a little luck.
During all of this you guys helped me with two different referrals to houses to buy. I came really close to getting one of them but there were a couple items that I was scared about and that kept my offer just a little bit too low. The family has turned down my offer on the other one too but I think they are just asking too much. They haven’t sold it yet so there is still hope. Anyway, I just wanted to thank you all for looking out for me. It seems that the houses are coming from either someone with a rental property that is in need of work then they want to take on or families with distressed houses whose owners are moving into assisted living or deceased. The big thing is that I have to get to them before they get on the market. The advantage that I’m offering these sellers is that there are no fees, no contingencies, no headaches and a quick cash closing.
I’ll be back home tomorrow and ready for more pool, golf and to plan another camping trip! What’s on your agenda this week?
