Now that does not sound very polite! On Saturday I was showing clients some great Catonsville (Maryland) homes that were at least 50 years old. Wonderful details were in abundance in all of the homes. Huge great Victorians with 3 levels and full wrap around porches. My favorite style to view. Just delightful. In one of the homes I walked into a room and I was overwhelmed with nostalgia and childhood memories. The natural aroma, the huge fireplace and the period furniture evoked thoughts of my wonderful Grandmother and the times we would spend at her house as a child. Smells are very thought provoking and it was very enjoyable to have such pleasant recollections. The house was charming, but some features did not suit my clients. Do you think the Seller would object if I returned to just ...

  Saturday March 7th 2009 Spring is almost here and this evening before you go to bed, be sure to turn all of your clocks forward one hour to accommodate Daylight Savings. SPRING FORWARD. It means we lose a whole hour of rest, but the reward of this sleep deprivation is that now our evenings are going to be longer. Wooo hoooo- I can see the numbers on the houses I am showing now! It almost feels like there is more time in the day. Of course getting my two year old to bed is going to be more of a challenge. Here is a great website to visit to get all of the history and information on Daylight Savings.

 ........but I was busy making a snowman with my son! We woke up this morning to six inches of snow in Catonsville, MD. What's a girl to do, but bundle up and head outside and forget that it's really a Monday morning.  Granted, he is not the most attractive snowman I have ever seen, (or built) but this was the first official snowman my son helped to create. Finding a hat was the hardest part. (Sharing his clothing is obviously not my child's strong point!) I worked most of the weekend, so it was a good time to enjoy some mandatory R & R. I hope your snow day was fun too!

2009 Winter Weather AdvisoryWhat could be more unpredictable than the weather? How about your legal obligation if someone sues you for being injured on YOUR property?                                          You have taken all precautionary measures to clear your sidewalks of snow and ice. You have even posted a sign stating, "Slippery walkways, use caution". The special fast acting salt that usually cracks your concrete has been generously spread about your porch and steps. You smile knowing that, unless a neighbor tossed over a banana peel, your walkways are safe enough for a one year old just learning to how to prance. Are you liable if a person slips and injures themselves after you took the time to be a responsible citizen? Slip and Fall Accidents Involving Snow or Ice Most states ...

For many years I have listened to friends, clients and family tell me that their children take out the trash, mow the lawn and do chores around the house. I remember as a child doing undesirable tasks to help the family- I am the eldest of four. Catonsville, Maryland had it's first snow of the winter season yesterday. My 2 and a half year old son has had it easy for those past 2.5 years. Time to earn his keep. Snow shovel in hand, wrapped up to the hilt, he hit the path with a good pace.          It obviously pays to start them early! How soon can he stuff envelopes is my question?

I think I am done! I can not find another item that needs to be gift wrapped. I have wrapped and wrapped and wrapped. Only two paper cuts. My only lament is that I wish someone had pointed out a little earlier to this rookie Mom that I need different paper to wrap the "Santa" gifts. There were three casualties! Merry Christmas.

It seems that the only reprieve from the weather today on the East Coast was Southern Florida. The rest of us were bundled up and complaining about the cold. It was a chilly one. My first client today wanted to see three homes. I sat in my toasty warm car waiting for her to arrive. This was a bank owned property. When she finally arrivied we headed to the front door. Imagine my delight to see one of those antiquated spin combo locks to gain access. Add to my rising frigid euphoria the fact that this combo box was down below the stoop on the water faucet with a huge puddle of frozen ice in front of it. Gloves off, buyer holding me steady as I slipped around on the ice, fingers going numb I finally managed to get the key. I guess my only solace was that this was a morning client and someo...

It's difficult to turn on the news these days without reports of violence and attacks. It seems that they are coming closer to home. A Mothers group I belong to sent an e-mail recently about statistics at a local mall (15 minutes from my home) having a huge increase in parking lot muggings in broad daylight. Because of recent abductions in daylight hours, refresh yourself of these things to do in an emergency situation... It never hurts to be careful in this crazy world we live in. 1 Tip from Tae Kwon Do : The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do! 2. If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM Toss it away from you.... chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you, and he will go for the ...

It's not too late to register. Saturday the 15th was a dreary wet typical November day. My Au Pair, Chloe and I headed to the campus of the Baltimore Community College in Catonsville to get our free flu shot from the kind folk at St Agnes Hospital. Due to the bad weather the event was cancelled. (If I had checked my voice mail at home I would have known this!) This event has been rescheduled.  What: Drive Thru Flu Clinic When:Saturday, November 22, 2008, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Where:Community College of Baltimore County-Catonsville Lot #3800 South Rolling Road Catonsville, MD 21228 Cost:FreeRegistration:For additional information or to register,Please call: 1-866-690-9355 Ellie McIntire The McIntire Team 410-480-3398 410-750-8781(FX) 443-418-7668(cell) E-mail:  Ellie@LNF.com http://www.elliestea...

ROLL IN, ROLL UP, ROLL OUT! Saint Agnes provides convenient, quick and easy flu shots   It is not your typical drive-thru, no burger or fries here! On Saturday, November 15, 2008, Saint Agnes Hospital will host a drive-thru flu clinic where residents can receive their annual flu shots without even leaving their car. The flu shots are free but you must be 18 years old and pre-register by telephone. Annually 5-20% of the United States population develops this viral infection and 200,000 people are hospitalized from flu complications. Each year, the influenza virus changes slightly making vaccines from previous years ineffective. However, receiving the current flu shot will significantly decrease your chances of developing the influenza virus. With flu season rapidly approaching there is n...

 I don't know about you, but all week-end I have been lamenting the fact that I did not vote already. Every news channel has been telling me to anticipate unprecedented turn-outs and LONG LONG lines at the polls to vote. This morning I got up and moving a little later than I had anticipated. (You try convincing a two year old with borderline OCD into a pair of socks so he can still wear his beloved crocs) Oh no the lines are going to be LONG LONG LONG.  First dilemma was whether to take the baby with me or swing by the day-care first. The lines are going to be LONG LONG LONG. I dropped my son off at 8.10am. The lines are going to be LONG LONG LONG We have an important office meeting at 9.29am. The lines are going to be LONG LONG LONG. It's now 8.30am. Well, the good news is that I did d...

It's been a long day. 2 listing appointments this morning and 9 home showings this afternoon with a new buyer. Busy busy busy. Add to that a rambunctious two year old who wants to play with Mummy when she gets home and you better believe I am tuckered out when dyno kid finally goes to bed! At 8.15pm my assistant called me from the gym. While on the treadmill he had read the local rag. My all time favorite English singer, Billy Bragg was playing at the "Rams Head Live" in Baltimore. "Call and see what time he goes on" he said. I did not even blink. I pulled on my jeans, threw a brush through my hair, told the wife (My awesome Au-Pair, Chloe) I was going out and I was ready to hit the door. John called back 10 minutes later to say that today is the 29th, not the 28th and we missed it.  NO...
