What Kurt Russell & Albert Einstein taught me about Christmas.

Related imageOn Netflix, there is a movie with Kurt Russell as Santa Claus.  So I watched it (with the kids of course), but it had a slightly different twist on how Santa is able to get to ALL the kids of the world in one night.  “The Christmas Chronicles” movie used a time machine gimmick to slowww time down to get the presents delivered.  And THAT got me thinking…


How can we slow down and enjoy this season?

Option 1:  Study the Department of Motor Vehicles, libraries and school detention to find out how they have mastered the art of making time drag on and on.

Option 2:  Tap into Einstein's theory of relativity to change how we perceive time and simplify our focus on the best parts of this Christmas. Ahaaa!

Let’s say you are driving.  There is just grass on either side of the road, no dashes or even traffic (so peaceful and serene).  On the OTHER, there are buildings, billboards, other cars and pretty much everything we see when traveling on 635 or the tollway.  Even though you may be going 60 miles per hour on each, the second one makes you feel like you are going 90 mphWhy is that?  

Moving relative to other cars or roadside distractions we SEE our speed in how fast we pass them or they pass us.  But when we don’t have that, TIME SLOWS DOWN.   Breathing slows, shoulders relax and you step out of the trenches of life to find yourself enjoying life again. 

Let the world melt away, focus on the one thing we were meant to have as guiding light.  Sure it's hard to narrow our focus, but it's much better than a cluttered and frenzied life.  Whether you believe in Jesus Christ and what His coming meant for all of us, we can all agree that LOVE is worth it.  It's the greatest creation, the thing that is the one thing that either fills our hearts with joy and peach OR without it, we self-destruct.  Find Love.  Place it on your fireplace mantle and make sure to share it with everyone around you... That is a sure recipe for the best Christmas ever.

Could the Worst be Over? The Numbers Are Loooookin' Good!

We are tracking the number of homes that are being put “under contract” to get some early indicators as to how buyers are behaving in real-time.   Want to take the pulse of our local housing market?   Look no further than right here! [Quick Data Explanation] The charts below are going to have two bars , one for homes being put “under contract” this year AND one to compare against for last year.   To read this right, you have to know that the average home is sold about 30 days after it’s put “under contract”.   So last year’s sold data was put into date ranges based on this corresponding timeframe to give us an active comparison. Collin County The orange bar  represents how many homes went under contract in 2019 (and eventually sold 30 days later).   The blue bar  shows the number of homes going under contract this year. The hottest segment of the market SHOULD BE the 200k to 300k range, but it’s the only price ra nge that didn’t see an increase.  My
