You know what really sucks? A major snowstorm in April! Why we didn't look for houses in Hawaii is beyond me . . .it would be really nice to have some warm, sunny 60 degree days - is that too much to ask for?

In other news, our house inspection occurred on Monday. It was much longer than expected, but we had a great inspector who was very thorough. There were a few things that we asked the seller to fix before closing. Fortunately the sellers agreed and have been working on making that happen. We also discovered that the appraiser and municipal inspection has required the seller to make other changes. One change we are most happy about is taking down the illegal shower in the basement. We were wondering how we were going to take it apart, but now we have to wonder no more!

Back to the home inspection on Monday - it was very informing and interesting. We not only got locked in a bedroom, but the smoke alarm wouldn't stop going off when it was tested. It made for a very entertaining day. I don't think that our inspector was quite as amused. He had this look of panic on his face as he was trying to take the door off it's hinges. Fortunately our realtor came to the rescue and just happened to stop by the house to see how the inspection was going. Talk about great timing!
