Back Home In Arizona

I'm back and it's hot.

I finished the day with a 2.43 mile run in 102 degree weather. Luckily, there was a slight breeze. I, also, got 24 minutes of running in the pool with an average heart rate of 105, peaking at 119.

Javamom chronicled her day on her blog. I thought it was interesting, so I did too. My first day back from vacation started at the computer like most days. Phone calls and paperwork. And yes, my day was as hectic as my desk is messy. It will get better the rest of the week. Notice my Runner's World Calendar is still on June.

Then it was off to the office. I picked up three commission checks at West USA Realty. I do like picking up checks, however, my wife usually doesn't let me. She's still on vacation so I get to take the checks to the credit union.

Which is where I went next.

I had to meet with a client and give her the keys to her new home. It was on the west side, about a 60 mile round trip. I got over there early. I went over to the Peoria Sports Complex to kill a little time, hoping that there would be a Rookie level minor league game going on. The only games going on was a high school tournament. They wanted $7 to watch the game. I took a couple pictures and watched a few pitches and then left. I wasn't going to pay to watch HS baseball. Sorry.

So I went to lunch. My sister loves Chipotle. I thought I'd give it a second chance. It's good, but I wouldn't say I love it. Here's my lunch. A Carnitas Burrito and soda.

Then off to meet my client. Here she is in front of her new home. It's twice as big as the condo I sold her and her husband a few years ago.

Then it was back to the east side. Past the new domed football stadium.

Past downtown and the diamondbacks stadium.

All the way home.

For more paperwork and phone calls. The good news, I got an offer on one of our townhomes for sale. If this offer would have come yesterday, I would have had to pay $1350 to another Realtor to handle the offer. And as you can see, I need the money to do a little work on my home.

No, it's not really my home. But, it is for sale. $40,000 in Maricopa, AZ. The listing agent says the value is in the land.
