Our real estate agent called us at lunchtime today and told us a couple wanted to see the house. I had spoken to these folks a couple months ago and then they'd disappeared. I thought they had long since found a property. But apparently they're still looking. We set up an appointment for 9 am tomorrow...or so I thought. Tonight during American Idol our agent called back and said they couldn't make it at that time after all. We're not sure when they can make it.

They would need us to move out REALLY soon. Which is well and good, except the longer they take to see the house and potentially make an offer, the more of a hardship it would be for us to get out as quickly as they'd want us to.

Can someone please, please do what they say they're going to do, when they say they're going to do it? This seems like a pattern with our real estate agent. Everything is a freaking surprise. HEADS UP! HOUSE SHOWING! OH WAIT! NO HOUSE SHOWING AFTER ALL!

Even American Idol was disturbingly unpredictable. Maroulis safe. Bice not so much--a narrow escape. Who knew singing "Freebird" doesn't get you very far anymore?
