No, I am not the Bonnie Erickson that created Miss Piggy or any of the other famous Muppet creatures! I'm just a lowly Minnesota real estate agent with a name too common in this world!
My attempt at spying on those who write about Bonnie Erickson through my Bloglines' feed, was filled today with references to the creator of Miss Piggy. For many months, references to Bonnie Erickson were only those referring to me. Slowly a famous social worker moved into place on my searches for Bonnie Erickson. In the last month Miss Piggy's creator has obviously taken the spotlight in the media with a multitude of references filling the feed.
Of course, the decrease in references to me might be the result of my month long vacation from blogging. One really does have to write something in order to be noticed. Life, however, got in the way of blogging in October. My hours were filled with work and coffee: many long hours seeking the perfect St. Paul houses for less than $80,000! Between work squeezed a major rehab project, a home rehab project, preparation for hunting (Yes, I admit to the blood lust of hunting!), contractor interviews for a major retaining/support wall project in a rental, more house showings, more coffee, another birthday (Perish the thought!), market doom and gloom avoidance, family member caretaking, research on real estate issues, more coffee, pre-list appointments for next year's listings, new marketing material creation, etc. Oh, and an occasional evening crocheting an afghan in the few minutes before drifting off to sleep in front of the TV. And did I mention, more coffee?
Now that contractors are in place, the loan is closed, the purchase agreements accepted, inspections completed, title work cleared, listings entered in the MLS, and winter soon to be burgeoning, it's time to get back to blogging. It's been fun to take a break, but it's fun to come back refreshed and full of ideas.
