The next day Michael and I spent some time at an outdoor mall, which looked more like a scene from "Gorillas in the Mist" in an attempt to keep patrons cool. I appreciated the effort, but those misters were on full blast!We also saw "District 9," which was pretty good. I'd be up for seeing a "District 10"...Michael would not.
On Sunday we had our home inspection! This meant we got to go see the home again, so I brought my brother, JP, along with us to get the family approval. The great news is that there weren't any major problems with the house. A few tiles were cracked on the roof and the water heater needs a new valve. The biggest thing was that many of the windows had lost their seal or vaccuum, which can be a little costly to replace since you have to re-do the window completely. Luckily we have the option of asking the sellers to do all of these things before we buy the house.
If this all goes through, we'd be closing on October 20...two days after our first anniversary! Since the traditional first anniversary gift is paper, maybe those final contracts will be our gifts to each other. A home isn't too shabby of a gift, after all. That is, in addition to the extra surprises I have in store for the Mr.!
