Our granddaughters, Taylor and Keirra had a great time looting, er, I mean touring their neighborhood picking up donations for their candy cache. They are our little princesses and they dressed and looked the part, although I think Taylor is a spidery princess.
We can't wait to see them over Christmas out in Oregon if all goes right with our house sale.
As for the house sale, I received the report today from the home inspector, all twenty four pages of it. He nit-picked everything to death, well beyond actual discrepancies, he inserted way too much personal opinion. I offered to stay and assist him with my knowledge of our house and its systems. He didn't want me around. Looking back, that is probably a good thing, because I probably would have thrown him out.
The way he wrote the report, you'd think this was the house from the Tom Hanks movie The Money Pit and the house is going to collapse in a heap any minute. There are things he said weren't working when it's obvious he couldn't find the proper switch to turn the item on.
Fortunately, the buyers have asked for me to fix just two things, a couple of stuck windows from fresh paint and install GFI wall sockets around the kitchen sink. The kitchen sink wall sockets are already on a whole house GFI circuit, so that doesn't have to be done. I called my realtor and explained how that system is set up and to tell the buyer's realtor we won't be doing any modification to that circuit. It will be interesting to see where this goes.
If the buyers back out, plan B will go into effect, I got a solid job offer in my field today. (Gasp!)
Despite the home inspector's insulting report, there is special news in our house today. I'd like to show you a picture of our newest granddaughter!
Actually, this is a picture of our daughter-in-law, Amanda, Corey's wife (and her dog Madison) on the beach in New Jersey. See that little bump in her tummy? That's our newest granddaughter, due in March 2012. They found out today it's a girl! Now if they can just agree on a name... :c)
