We Have Awful Luck

Soooo the inspection… was not good.  Although I suppose it could have gone worse, but everything we suspected was wrong, was wrong.  The roof needs to be replaced, like yesterday, there are some rotted out windows, the Radon level was absurdly high, and the furnace and AC were original to the house… so from 1988.  Sigh.  Now, we negotiate on price to be able to afford to do all the things that need fixing.  Wah.

Anyway, after getting the news about the inspection, I decided to venture across the street to happy hour with some other co-workers.  I stayed for many more hours than I should have, but it was fun, and we met this guy!

Mike Aubrey from HGTV’s Real Estate Intervention, which is apparently done.  Although he did give us the inside scoop on a new show he’s filming for HGTV called power broker or something like that, but he said not to write about it on the internet.  Oops.  He was nice enough, although relatively douchey when he dropped a line about his ring from the Orange Bowl.  Psh, whatever.  He was out with a girl who looked young enough to be his daughter, but we were excited and totally obvious about discovering it was him.

Today, I am tired, and thinking about going home to PA for the weekend.  We’ll see though.  Happy Friday!


A Shared Attraction

There are many reasons why I love my significant other, his stunning good looks and muscular stature aside.  Alright, alright, it’s the bald head that really does it for me :).  No but seriously, part of the reason is that we can have conversations like this, where it’s hard to tell who in fact is the female in the relationship.

Ahem, I’m in the green, for you non-iPhone people.  So uh yeah, at least we have the same taste in men?  Anyway, the show in discussion was Kitchen Cousins and I am officially obsessed because damn are those boys fine, and they can build me my dream kitchen? Where do I sign up?  HGTV was playing back to back episodes last night, which helped me get through my 60 minutes on the elliptical, broken up into two 30 minute sessions with some biceps and triceps thrown in the middle.

As far as the house goes, we still have not heard anything because apparently Dar and I pick THE WORST houses to put offers on. The first one was a REO, which means it had been foreclosed on, and was now a bank owned property so they could take their sweet ass time deciding about offers.  Now on this one, the couple is going through a less than amicable divorce where the husband now live in Green Bay and the wife is in the house with the kids.  Apparently the decision to sell the house was not something they agreed on, but more of a necessity therefore no one can come to an agreement on what to do with our offer.  If we don’t hear anything today, we are going to submit another offer at a slightly higher price uh because we really low balled them with our first.

Anyway, I should really get some work done so I can get out of here at 2 today to entertain my family members.  We have dinner reservations at my favorite, American Tap Room, tonight and then I’ll probably fall asleep because I cannot stay up past 10 pm these days.  That could have more to do with the NyQuil/codeine combination than actual tiredness though. Happy Friday!
