Did I say that?

As a part of the home buying process, we hired a home inspector to come out to make sure it wasn't falling down. We paid a bit more than normal since we used a structural engineer. Apparently he is so busy, he has someone else in his office do it. Someone who isn't a structural engineer. Two of the posts on the porch are rotted out at the bottom. As part of his guarantee, he came out to take a look at it to see if it is something he should have deemed "to be fixed by the owners"....If it is, then he will pay to have it fixed.

Anyhow, the guy who was supposed to do it in the first place came out yesterday morning just as the movers were supposed to be here as well. Husband had to run up to Lowes to get something for the dryer so it could be working just as soon as it got hooked up. You know it is killing me that I haven't done laundry in almost ten days! I am a load-a-day gal!

It took them all of ten minutes to decide that "yes, it probably should have been caught".....they were measuring the posts etc. They were gone before Husband got back. I was telling him about it and I said....

"The owner and some old guy: he was about forty , came by.........
DANG, I meant he was probably like fifty or something...or like old, not forty old!

I still don't think I am old....forty isn't that old. But this guy was old!

PS, I was ready to post some unpacking pics. But I couldn't get my cord to work. I think I need to put the ones on the camera on the external hard drive. I haven't done that since we left TX. I was too scared I would lose them.

Even though I should really try to unpack a few more boxes, I am going to relax....with a glass of wine, and put my feet up.

Happy Tuesday

mama-If you ever have a girl, she will change clothes at LEAST twice, usually three times a day. She is a germ-a-fobic and will not keep clothes on that have a spot on them! I am just glad she can dress herself!

Glad you are getting to put your feet up! Forty isn't old! However it is older than 35...snicker.

jennifer, playgroups are no place for children said...

You have been busy!! (Not too busy to paint your toes, I see, though! ;) )

I remember thinking 30 was old back when I was 18, now as I'm getting older, 90 is seeming OLD.
