The Inspection

The guy inspecting the house got a spur up his rear and deemed the inspection as inconclusive. He suddenly became annoyed and picked on small things that delayed the completion of the inspection. Ok... you know me, can't accept that. It's fine he is having a bad day, however, I have a mission to complete.

I made a few phone calls to the office and we are going to work things out via fax. The rep at the office was awesome...:) Apparently, this inspector tends to change personalities from time to time. They said he tends to be "like that" sometimes. I remained professional and calm. Getting upset would only make everyone involved angry. They told me to have the tenant sign the form once the electricity is turned on. Then fax it to me. I will sign it and fax it to the office.

The rep was such a sweetheart. She said she will get the paperwork through the process as fast as she can. Patience is certainly a virtue! If you don't possess it, experience will certainly teach you!

Update on Date St.

Things are finally starting to go forward with my rental unit on Date St. :). The exterminator came and I had a professional carpet cleaning done.

The contractor managed to get the toy that was jammed in the garbage disposal out and the sink in the bathroom flowing again! Electricity goes on today and we can try out the garbage disposal to determine if it needs to be replaced. He also replaced the cracked window in the front bedroom and painted & cleaned the cabinet under the kitchen sink where there was mold...Grrrr!

The inspector stopped by and acknowledged the work, which is a really good thing. He will be back today to complete the inspection. By tonight, the tenant can begin moving her things in!....YAY! The completion of this project will be a HUGE load of my shoulders. I did sleep better last night. My grandson seems to sleeping through the night these days :).

Both Monday and Tuesday, I worked 15- hour days. Yesterday was an 11 hour day. Today and tomorrow are 15-hour days. Today & tomorrow's 15-hour schedule won't be too bad. It's only one child and he is really, really well behaved. He has dinner, plays for a while, then I have him lay down to watch a movie till his mom comes. I have him upstairs in the loft where I can keep an eye on him while I do my own evening routine.
A place like this would be such a beautiful thing! It's been a long time since we've been camping....hmmmm, sounds like an idea that 'needs' to be developed into a reality!
