I should update you! It became official on May 1, 2012, we are home owners! We have had a "welcome to being a homeowner" experience very quickly after closing. Things that really were supposed to have to have been taken care of prior to closing, were not taken care of as they should have been, due to a few reasons. The video shows you a peek into what we uncovered. We put a bandaid on it and are in a holding pattern. Not sure what to do next. We also have major concerns about the electrical work that was completed in our home. So we do have a few worries about ants eating our house from under us, or our house burning down.....not such a great feeling. The sellers also dug out 15 large/tall evergreens that ran along our property line, leaving 15 large holes and totally ruined the grading and the view to the entrance of our home! For all of my glass friends, the area in the garage that was invaded by ants is supposed to be my glass studio, that is certainly on hold until we can afford the finsihing of this disaster! However, I have hope that we will find solutions and all will be well.
Also since I last wrote to you my father and I celebrated our 3rd year since one of my kidneys was given to him so that he could be with me a little while longer. 3 years later and he is doing very well as far as his kidney is concerned, his heart is another issue. We recently discovered that he needs a new valve and are waiting to find out if that can be accomplished. He is a vibrant man, not your typical 73 year old for certain!
Lastly, we celebrated our 2nd year anniversary yesterday. Our neighbors took us on a boat ride up the river to the chain of lakes. The view was incredible!
