How you will you get the most up-to-date information for Boxing Day if you are off the grid??? 

How will you know where Santa Claus is in the world and how and where our great military will be escorting him as they have done since the 1950s?

Other than blogging which is a passion and FacBooking with friends & family since they seem to reply faster to that than phone calls, I'll be off the grid 12/24/2016-01/02/2017...that's right, a whole 9 days off the grid. I've never worked the week between Christmas and New Year's Day as a Realtor..ever. I love having that vacation each year to relax, travel and final prep my goals for the New Year. I'll outlast you if you never put down your tools and have more fun in the process. Rest-Run-Succeed!

Always have to check the email to delete the crapiola, but not intending to work.  We live in a very diverse community and it's not unusual to have showings on Christmas Day, so I have let my sellers decide individually whether they want the homes shown.  Some are out of town, and it's no big deal.  But personally, I'm not working.
