We live in a 2 story townhouse (I bought it before DH & I were married) close to town. Since we moved in, we've remodeled almost every square inch. We put down hardwood floors, tile, etc., which we did ourselves, as well as new lighting/door/plumbing fixtures and knobs throughout. I'd like to think we have one of the nicest units in our neighborhood. We've worked extremely hard to get it where it is.
So we put our house on the market in February. We have a few acres in the country that we're building a house on. In early May, we received a legit offer and accepted. In the state I live in, it is highly encouraged by lenders to have the house inspected. Fine. I was almost looking forward to it, seeing all the work we've put into it. So the buyer had it inspected back in late May. We got a 17 PAGE REPORT with things the buyer and/or inspector wasn't satisfied with. Let me fill you in on the extent of these "problems": 1. a light switch cover in our kitcken was loose. Not the receptacle itself, the plastic cover that screws in. 2. Our windows in the guest bedroom were hard to open. Okay. We've never opened them, so I was intrigued by this one. Turns out once you open it the first time, it opens nice and smooth the rest of the time. It was stuck from not being opened in so long. 3. The buyer didn't like the tile in our foyer, so she wanted it re-done. I could go on but I'm assuming you get the point.
This lady is nuts! A home inspection is designed to point out STRUCTURAL flaws, major cosmetic errors (i.e. sheetrock not puttied, etc.) and NOT petty shiit like, "Well, I don't know how to use a screwdriver, so I'm going to need you to screw in the light switch cover for me."
So the inspector had to do a walk through last Thursday to determine all the petty things he's pointed out were fixed. And they were. I assumed this would be a breeze, but of course I was wrong again. He came back with another 12 page report of NEW PROBLEMS. Okay let me get something straight, the buyer has the right to ONE inspection, which was done, and "problems" were fixed. I'm not going to play a back and forth game with these inspections. You had your chance to find all of our mistakes. I'm done trying to please you. Ugh - Selling our house is going to be the end of me.
Please keep your fingers crossed I don't lose it on this lady. thanks.

DH and I were married 3/31/07 in a beautiful pavilion overlooking river rapids. We dated a little over 2 years before we were married, and as corny as this sounds, we have spent literally every single day together since we met. He is my best friend, my entire world; he understands and loves me in ways I never imagined possible. We have two dogs, a yorkie and a shihtzu (my babies). I'm a routine person. I have to have things on a schedule (for the most part) and follow said schedule meticoulously. I'm driven, a hard worker, and I believe anything worth having is worth working for. I take my career very seriously, and my marriage even more so. I have a bad temper at times, but a tender heart that is easily pursuaded with the right words. I dream of becoming successful, having a family, and enjoying life to the fullest. I'm a Christian, and truly believe that everything happens as part of His plan, not ours. Our life is in His hands.
So that's a little about me... now you know.

"If you have any of the following symptoms, please notify an official BEFORE boarding: sneezing, coughing, runny nose, nasal congestion, sore throat, nausea, body aches."
Okay I know not everyone is at the intelligence level to attend an Ivy League School, but come on!! Common sense tells you if the news is broadcasting alerts of a H1N1 pandemic spread, do not board a plane if you have those symptoms! I know I don't have the Swine Flu, it's just a severe cold, but either way it SUCKS!! So thank you, ignorance, for not covering your mouth when you cough and making me never want to board a plane again. Thanks.
