One important aspect for my husband and me is establishing a routine.

As my partner Jason and my business is real estate, we want to assure you that the real estate market incredibly, appears to be doing quite well. We participated in a multiple offer situation for a downtown Menlo Park town home yesterday with 5 offers! Unfortunately we were not successful and ALL 5 offers were above the asking price! There is strong interest in our beautiful Sharon Heights listing on Cascade and we expect an offer soon.
America is strong because its people are strong. My parents both served in WWII. While this is a war with an invisible enemy, I firmly believe we will pull through and be stronger! So in closing be strong my friends.
