The house inspection was awesome. There are lots of things that need doing, but nothing terrible and nothing urgent.

The house will need gutters, there are some electrical boxes in the garage that need covers, the basement ducts need insulating, the furnace and ducts could use a cleaning, one of the windows is cracked -- barely. The dishwasher doesn't work -- we expected it didn't. There is some vermiculite in the attic space that could have asbestos in it that needs to be cleaned up -- it is mostly bagged up already. We also need to replace 6349472983 outlets with grounded outlets, but the boxes are grounded, so it is trivial.

The wallpaper is so ugly, just wait till you see it. I can't wait to peel it away, sand and paint everything. It is gonna be awesome. The basement is a cool space, which could use some cleaning and maybe some day finishing.

We are planning a big weekend the Jan 14th MLKJr weekend for house painting and cleaning and we are looking for volunteers to help -- come one, come all, crash in our new pad, paint and eat pizza with us.

So I am home alone, sitting on my couch. I am contemplating a bagel and now I am spoiled rotten because I don't know what is in the fridge because I never open the fridge because all of my food is prepared and served to me. I hate the kitchen. in the new house the kitchen will have sunshine and a table I can sit at. This house has none of those things.

I am watching emails fly back and forth about the purchase of my house. The lawyers are emailing back and forth about the Purchase and Sale agreement, and changing things. It is the 2 week waiting time instead of the six week waiting time. And our Mortgage guy just went on leave to have knee surgery.

It is cold in the house during the day, because the heat automatically turns down. I could get up and turn it off, but it is in the kitchen and we have talked about the problem with that. And I have a blanket and kitty.

I wish I had a movie to watch, but then again I might go read old logs all day.

Amber is coming home to make sure I don't eat cookies for lunch.
