Tossed Salad Friday

~~Despite the cliché, haste may not always make waste, but is sure can scare the pants off a client.  I was rushing to e-mail him something that could have waited, and I wrote that a title-related charge would be $1,750 instead of $750. That dent in his budget was a big one, so I am glad he called to straighten things out!

 

~~A woman was bemoaning her reduced circumstances. I tried to make her feel she wasn’t alone by telling her that I could relate, having earned way more in the past than I do these days. “Oh, no,” she wailed, “I don’t earn less than before. I just can’t borrow as much as I used to!”

 

~~I am sorry that people will be losing their jobs at Sears and KMarts. But I have borne a grudge against Sears since it took over a stand-alone Bloomingdales in Garden City many years ago. I loved that store-- the parking was covered, the store layout was wonderful, and the rest rooms reminded me of ones that I’d encountered in upscale restaurants and luxury hotels. I vowed never to set foot in that Sears, and I never did. There’s no cause and effect whatsoever, I’m sure (especially since I’ve been out of most stores since our depressing recession started). However, one teensy irrational part of me feels like Sears got its comeuppance!

 

~~This is a helpful article on what you can do to perhaps receive a higher appraised value for your house, whether refinancing or selling: http://blogs.wsj.com/developments/2011/10/11/ten-tips-for-high-value-home-appraisals/?mod=WSJBlog

 

~~Yesterday, I was asked three times what my 2012 resolutions were. I don’t have any, as I rarely think of January as a time of renewal. I think of it only as a steppingstone to April! How about you? Any resolutions?

I wish you a happy, healthy, peaceful, and prosperous 2012!  If the opportunity arises, please Occupy Somewhere!
