Unexpected Dinner Out

I received a call 2 days ago asking to show our house yesterday at 5:30.  I said that would be fine and I specifically asked about how long they would be.  Their realtor told me that they would for sure be done by 6:00.  Yesterday, I picked up my daughter from daycare (I have to pick her up by 5:30) and we went to the farmer's market.  I spent $12.50 there buying a couple pumpkins, squash, potatoes, garlic, and peas.  From there we head home.  At 6:00, they're still there so we head to a park for a little bit and snack on the peas.  We drive by our house again at 6:15 and again at 6:30.  By this time, we're starving so I head for the local pizzeria.  I wasn't expecting to eat out but what could we do?  I know that there probably were other options but they didn't leave our house until 7:15.  Total damage for the pizza, $21.15 (we brought some home for hubby, he had class last night).  I was just annoyed at having to spend the money.  However, anybody who spend over 1 1/2 hours in our house has to be very interested.  Hopefully we will get an offer soon.

  1. It would be strange to have to drive around waiting for someone to show the house....I think i would want to do this myself - but then, in would be hard not to take things personal if potential buyers were criticizing my home...
