Thanks for all the nice comments on my picture that I posted last night... and for not judging me for being a selfie-addict. I was a bit worried that it would come across as vain, but it made me feel a lot better than you guys "got it" and didn't think it was weird.

I feel a TON better today. More calm and centered, I guess. I even got brave enough to call the real estate lady that a friend recommended to me. I was so scared that my heart was pounding and I was shaking when I called her (I reeeeeaaallly hate cold-calling people), but I pushed on through and we had a good conversation. I have some homework to get me started, and then she is going to come over and see my house in a week or two to tell me what I need to fix and what is okay as-is. I'm nervous as hell, but it feels good to finally get the ball rolling.

We have lots of rain and a cold front moving in today, and that feels wonderful too. I'm so ready for summer to be over. All of these days in the 90's have made it feel like we were stuck in summer purgatory forever.

I feel like today is the start of something different, and that is a good thing.

Hooray for bravery! Her visiting your house and giving you advice on what to fix and what to leave as it is sounds fantastic. Things are going to work out.

And no-one could think your costuming art as vain. It's always a delight.

You're not a selfie addict! A selfie addict posts 100000 pics of them in normal clothes/environments making duck face. You post beautiful arty pictures of your art!

Good for you on calling the agent! I am SO with you on cold calling. I actually write scripts for myself sometimes I get so nervous. So long as videocalls don't become commonplace my secret is safe. ;)

Yeah this! You aren't vainly sharing 10 pics a day of you in the bathroom mirror showing us different lipstick colors. You are sharing your costuming while wearing it, and that's what we WANT to see! Getting to see you in your costumes and all styled and seeing you out having a nice time is fun for us.

Glad you were able to cross something big off the list. You've done it!!

Totally not vain. It's art! I love all the photo shoots you've done of your costumes. You always end up with such gorgeous photos.

I'm glad you had a good experience with the real estate lady!

I think feeling like you are finding new beginnings is a very good thing. Lots of hugs and love.

It honestly never occurred to me that you might think you were a selfie addict! I love your pictures, and I'm amazed at your ability to capture good poses. As well as your dedication to take enough to GET good poses!

I'm so glad you're feeling better. Way to go, calling the real estate lady! It must feel good to have particularly things to work on, too. It's a lot better than just looking at it and knowing there's a lot that can be done, but not knowing what's important or where to start.

It's started raining here. I'm so excited! I'm looking forward to some quality Couch Potato Time this weekend.

A bit of closure yesterday, maybe? And then starting anew today. I'm so happy for you. :)

Hooray for fall finally coming! And hooray for talking to the realtor! I hope things go well.

I love seeing your pictures. You'd better not stop taking them!

I am so with you on cold calling. Good for you for being so brave!
