Upon Closer Inspection

Today a certified professional is going somewhere no man has gone before (at least not during this home selling process): the land of the home inspection.

That's right. We have a contract. We have co-signers. They have a 3 o'clock appointment with the inspector.

The Boss, the dog, and I are getting ready to make like trees and leave. When we return to the finished inspection, it won't be long till we find out if we have a reason to start packing.

My pessimism is starting to fade to the point that I need to fight to get it back into clearer focus. I do not embrace positivity. I abhor disappointment. So when I look around my house now and see it as something that is on the verge of becoming someone else's, I must banish the picture. I have to remind myself that it is still very much ours. And that's okay, because that's just fine. For the past three years and for now, it's home. It is a wonderful place to be.

If only until June 15.

Edited to add:
I just discovered that someone landed at my blog after typing the following phrase into Google: "women who brought a bra and worms were in it and it ate through her breast."

Thought you might like to know.

A home inspection is a non-invasive examination of the condition of a home, often in connection with the sale of that home. This is carried out by a home inspector, who usually has special equipment and training to carry out such inspections. An inspector will check the roof, basement, heating system, water heater, air-conditioning system, structure, sportsbook, plumbing, electrical, and many other aspects of buildings looking for improper building practices, those items that require extensive repairs, items that are general maintenance issues, as well as fire, safety, and health hazards. Think of a home inspector as a detective searching throughout the house for clues that lead to a conclusion of the home's overall condition.
