First off...let me say 'Happy Birthday' to my sister, Martha, and my nephew, Jacob. Yes, they share a birthday. Since they are in two states it's probably the best that either of them have ever done with sharing...kidding...kind of.
Yesterday I had the home inspection done...on my house. My house. So close I almost feel the urge to pack all my stuff up. This time next month I will be only a few days away from closing and getting the key. Yesterday when we went to the house for the inspection Realtor Carol handed me the keys so I could go ahead and get in and show my dad around (he had yet to see it). It's funny, because a key is a key is a key right? But these keys felt different, I coveted these keys. I wanted to go get a box of my stuff and put it in one of the rooms...like licking your food to claim it. The box seemed more sane then licking the keys.
Good news, my dad approves of the house. After a little kicking and pushing on things he decided that it was good. It's a good feeling to have Dad approve of my decision, especially since we were already moving forward with things. The inspection went well, nothing too major, just basic stuff that I would want my house to have anyway and Dad says that we can do it all pretty inexpensively. After the inspection I followed Realtor Carol back to her office, because upstairs is where my loan guy is. So I went up there, he explained all this math information to me and I actually understood it! I suppose I might be a little brighter then I give myself credit for. Then I proceeded to sign my life away.
I love this house. Look at that counter space! I tell you, two years with hardly any counter space and no garbage disposal can make you go crazy. I have to buy this house, for my mental state of being.
Other then that I have nothing interesting to say. But considering that I am buying my first home, I think that's okay. I don't need to worry that I am uninteresting because I am busy worrying about other things...like avoiding any snags in the final stretch.
