So many thoughts
There are so many thoughts flying around my head right now. I have trouble keeping them straight. There are just so many things going on. So let's see if I can get caught up.
Last weekend, after deciding that renting was the best way to go, we bought a house. I know, crazy, but that's the way things happen. It is awesome in a number of ways and I'm very excited about it. Last Saturday we had the home inspection on this place and there are a couple of major issues; namely the plumbing and the electrical. The buyers are asking for $7500 credit and I'm saying no. So we are in the process of negotiating that. We offered to split it with them and now they want a picture of the dryer. Whatever....... The home inspection on the home we are buying is this morning. It will be interesting to see what that says and how I react to that.
I guess I'm just different than other people. I just don't expect others to fix my problems - though I wish someone would once in a while. When we bought this house, we knew what we were getting into. It's a 50+ year old house and it has issues. At the time we planned to fix those issues, but that just never happened. So we are passing on the issues to the new buyer. But overall, it's not a bad little house.
Anyway, then my classes are starting up again. I know why I did this, it is just annoying that they are starting up now of all times. Oh well, just have to deal with it.
School is over. Finally. Today is the baccalaureate mass/lunch and tomorrow is the graduation. I will have everything graded by tomorrow. Then it's a trip to school on Monday to turn in my keys and laptop and then it's over. Yesterday it was sad packing up my room. I really, really liked it at Damien. It is great people and I absolutely loved the students. I'm really hoping it will be like that at Heritage. I think it will, because everyone I've met so far is awesome. I think the trick is that everyone has to be in it for the students and leave their ego at the door. There was a certain, little, nun who had too much of her ego wrapped up in things. It took a long time, but I can laugh about her now. I can laugh at her absolute ridiculousness and her insane mandates. Oh well, that is done and over.
So to buy the house, we of course have to provide financial documents. All the documents were in the POD, so Thursday we made a trip out to the POD. That was an experience. It is way, way out on the old Barber's Point. Crazy. While we did that, we went to Mililani and looked at a friend's house. We keep thinking we will need a place to stay for a couple of days and she offered up the house they are selling. It's a beautiful house with gorgeous concrete floors. Those are something we may have to check into for the house in Laveen. Anyway, it would be perfect, the only problem is - it's in Mililani. Ugh!!! But I think I figured that out. We don't have to be out until the house closes and that's the day we get our money, so we'll just stay here on air mattresses until then and then head to a motel. As soon as we have the money, I plan on booking the flight. I'm hoping it will be only 2 or 3 days to get out.
One thing I have noticed is my attitude. I was really up and positive for almost all that has gone before. But the last couple of days I've been a little down. And in that time things are starting to go a little south. Time to fix that attitude. I really want to walk. It's raining but I still want to go. Hmmmm..... maybe wait a little bit and then go.
So there you have it. The week in a nutshell. It's Memorial Day weekend and I'm hoping everything works out the way it's supposed to.
