In the 6 years I’ve been publishing Home Sale News, I believe the latest it ever went out was Saturday. I shoot for sending them out on Thursday.

Even when I was on a family vacation in Europe 2 years ago I was able to get Home Sale News out on time more or less.

But after having 4 closing in 4 weeks totally $4 million (Thanks, Mike and Kathy, Bob and Kathy, Randy and Sharyn, and Tim!) I saw a hole in my schedule and wanted to jump on it and take a week’s vacation with my 17 year old son. He’ll be off to college in a year and I really wanted to spend some one-on-one time with him before he flew the coop.

Unfortunately, the internet connection up in the Sierra Mountains near Lake Tahoe was terrible. The cabin owned by a brother and 2 sisters was beautiful but the connection was just too slow for me to handle some technical problems that popped up with this issue.

So I punted and waited until my return today to send out Home Sale News.

But I’ll tell you, putting off Home Sale News really helped me have a great time with my son. He was, however, bored sometimes. He got so bored, in fact, that at some points he actually talked to me. (I love it when my plans work out!) My son Chris is a great guy but teenage boys aren’t especially talkative to their parents at home.

Anyway, thanks for your patience.
