Well, everyone went back to their respective places – FINALLY – on Friday; school and work. Aside from some residual coughing, everyone seems mostly healed. We spent the weekend doing very little other than soccer games, eating and napping. I honestly think the house buying/selling process has taken it out of us. I know my mind has been just fried thinking about it all.
On that note, our house did fine in the inspection, though it was not without worry. We have a stair step crack on the side of the home in the brick. But it was apparently not worrisome enough. In fact, the structural engineer looked at it for literally less than five minutes. Then I got word the buyer is moving forward. So that’s a positive. The one for the new home was Friday and though it was not awful, it gave us pause. The second story is not brick, it’s wood siding and a lot of the boards are warped. Additionally, there’s a lot of wood rot in other places. This makes us worried that going forward, all our extra income will go towards repairs. Having sat on it all weekend, we’re having reservations… about price and committing to a money pit. Though the inside is to die for and all remodeled, these are huge issues that could potentially lead to very big payouts in the not too distant future.
Sigh. I am nervous but I also feel really good knowing that my husband and I decided to say something to our realtor about it. I mean, we have that right – the inspection is for weeding out problems. Like I have said probably 3-4 times already today, a solution will inevitably present itself, one way or the other.
SO, there’s where I’m at; my brain is a frazzled mess, my stomach hurts, and the future is uncertain. But things do have a way of working out!
Since one of my least favorite holidays is this week, the theme is love songs. Don’t get me wrong; I love a good love song. However, I hate the actual phony-ness of the holiday.
I couldn’t find the real video for this but I love Kickboxer and this song is good for love of any kind.
Here’s a song Ash and I liked when we were dating.
and while we’re in country, here’s a great one.
