The other day I was stalking our house in Google maps because that’s my idea of a good time on a Friday night. I know…lame…we lead really exciting lives. Anyway…we’ve lived in our current abode for nearly three years and for the almost three years we’ve been here, we haven’t been Google mapped. Our house on Google maps is still from when the old owners lived here with the old landscaping and sans new deck. That is…until recently. Google finally mapped us…hootie hoo! But…of course there’s a but…the day Google decided to map our hood was the day of our yard sale. I wish I was kidding. Check it out:
Ignore the pic on the left. Aerial views were updated but the street view is still old. So that’s our little ol’ white house with a driveway chalk full o’ stuff that we hawking. Why does this kind of stuff happen to us? Why couldn’t Google have caught us on a normal day? Now our home will live in infamy as the “yard sale house” on the street. Blasphemy! Now we really are those neighbors. I’ve speculated in the past, but now I’m fairly certain of it.
But check this out…here I am (in the circle) trying to sell an old pair of skis to an old guy. He totally bought them. I’ve missed my calling in life as a used ski sales person.
And there’s our old dryer that we sold for like fifty bucks. That thing sat around way longer than we thought it would. Apparently there was a low demand for yard sale dryers that day.
Too funny! Now we’re the weirdos with a yard sale house on Google Maps…doh!
Pssst…Anyone else make an appearance on a Google Map? Or have an un-normal image of their house out there? Or secretly stalk your home on Google Maps? Just us? That’s what I thought.
Psssssst…Is it kind of weird that yesterday I posted about Google (Google reader going away and my new love for BlogLovin’) and today I’m posting about Google maps? Maybe I need to step away from the Google for a little while!
