    She talked with her lender this morning, and there is nothing else that she will have to do "in person". It's all up to the lender now and Terry was given the go-ahead to travel home. My work here is done.

    Be it known: When I set out to do something, I by-gosh DO IT!
    By gawd, she means it! LOL!

    One set back though since Rave posted. My realtor said that the sellers accepted my offer but what she said was they will probably accept it. my realtor called me on the road about 3 to 4 hrs away and told me he screwed up. My stomach immediately lurched. They counter offered by $2000 more. I said go for it. So now I have to wait until morning for him to fax me the counter offer to approve and sign and fax back so we have lost another day or two. (insert bad word here). We'll get this done if the stress doesn't kill me first.

    The house has about 15 sets of wood slat blinds, all filthy and needing to be cleaned one slat at a time.

    All the windows had to be cleaned on the inside only.

    Living room, dining room family room kitchen with eating area, all wood floors to be !mopped.

    Laundry room, Powder room, 2 full bathrooms all with mirrors to be cleaned plus 8 giant mirror closet doors.

    The cabinets in the bathrooms and kitchen were scrungy and had to be cleaned inside and out.

    4 fans to be cleaned, on a ladder.

    Linoleum floors in the laundry room and bathrooms to be mopped.

    Oh, and they wanted the hearth scrubbed.

    That's not a complete list but that was a lot of it.

    I'm still sending house-buying vibes, even though it sounds like a sure thing. I can't wait to see pictures! Rave, you have been a really great friend to help them find the perfect place!
    Ditto your last sentence.

    Lizzie, it sounds like they were poor housekeepers who finally conceded that they needed someone to come in and get it done. I thought that you were talking about one of your usual jobs.

    It was their house that I used to clean but they got a new house so now I clean the new house. The old house was rented out for two years to people that apparently don't like to clean.

    I just hope my clients are happy. I gave it my all.

    AAH! My grandfather had some rentals. Every once and a while we would help Mom clean one between tenants. That can get nasty. You can always go back and touch up whatever they think needs a bit more. Or better, when you have something major like that, you can hire someone to help.

    At least it was empty, so you didn't have to work around and clean under furniture. I hate to think of the dust bunnies under some of mine.

    I am going to ask for a step-stool so I can clean the nicotine stains around the ceiling. I also need to fill some nail-holes. Just about ready to use the shower after three days curing the new caulking at the bottom. I used pink insulation to fill in the gap. Might really help in the winter on the outside wall.

    Holy cow! No wonder you're so worn out. Hope your soreness goes away quickly. You're a tough gal, and I never fail to be impressed by what you accomplish!!

    Aw shucks, Terry. I told ya already that I had ulterior motives. Now I'll have a fishin' buddy. But really, we always have seemed to "click" and it'll be nice to be able to hang out as often as we like. Just sayin'.

    Yeah, Lizzie, that woulda taken me three days!

    I know exactly what that soreness feels like. Have you ever soaked in a warm tub with epsom salt? Heavenly!
