I was so excited this morning! I was showing a house that looked like it could be “the one” for a friend/client!
I had everything ready!
I double checked google maps, so I could leave with plenty of time! I forgot to double-check that google maps had my address correct. See, there is another house with my address. Only the end of the address street/road/etc is different.
So I was a little shocked when I pulled out of the driveway, clicked the address saved in to my calendar, and found I actually needed five more minutes than I had planned on. No big deal . . I could handle that. Then there was road construction, three separate vehicles going 10 to 15 miles per hour LESS than the posted speed limit in No Passing zones, and a train. Yes, a train. Over 100 car!!! Ok, then I was in the clear. I was following the google map instructions and it took me to the Wrong Place!!
Ugh. 10 minutes late.
My friend/client was thankfully understanding! She had been enjoying the peaceful morning and the deer grazing quietly 🙂
Unfortunately the house was not as great as they had made it. It was not “the house”. But, the search will continue!!
Tonight I am thankful for a job where I get to interact with great people that I enjoy! I am thankful for understanding that finding the best house takes some time. And I am super, super, super thankful for understanding when I am late despite my best intentions of being early!
