Sheesh, what a day.
I got up this morning, and it was snowing. There was less than an inch, but never the less, the ground was covered again. That means the parts that had cleared were covered; there are still large areas, in fact, most of the yard, that are still covered with 4-6 inches of snow. It was a beautiful snow with big, soft flakes. It continued to snow lightly for a while, and I think we ended up with about an inch of snow. Most of that melted off during the day.
I got the home inspection report, and all is good. There are a couple items that will be addressed in a counter for improvements, but they are relatively small and hopefully, easily corrected. So I called the mortgage company to let them know, and I learned that, oops, they forgot to tell us there should have been a termite inspection done sometime in this past couple weeks! Yikes! Well, February 1 is the deadline for everything to be ready, so I got busy getting this set up.
However, every place I called said they couldn't do it until 2/1, 2/2, or 2/3!!! Many of them are going to be in annual training for licensing renewal on 1/29, 1/30 and 1/31. I realize that we could request an extension, but I want it over and done! I'd already been on the phone for about 2 hours trying to get this arranged, and I was becoming really frustrated, when it dawned on me that the first guy, the one I'd like to have do it, said he could do the inspection on 2/1, and since that is the due day that my latest counter, it would be possible to get the inspection done in the AM and then send the counter in the PM. Whew! So another 45 minutes on the phone, and everything is in place, and we are on the road again!
This has been frustrating, but it is a small wrinkle in the process as compared to what some others have had to go through. It has moved nearly according to schedule with weather being the biggest issue. So at this time, it appears that some time around the end of February or the beginning of March, I will be moving! Finally!
It also means that Caroline and Laura need to watch out, 'cause I'm gonna be in KC, and I plan to put them to work, then drag them back here with me to work some more. LOL!!!
It is snowing again now. It seems that we might have another 1-3 inches overnight. Tomorrow will be sunny and in the mid- to upper-40s, so it will probably melt a lot. I've just buttoned up the house for the night and poured a glass of wine. Ahhhhhh.
