*the alley was really the priority in this adventure today. I had a letter from the city dated 3 days before I moved in (but about 5 days after I closed) that my alley was in violation of some neighborhood code. And I only had a few days to take care of it. So, I called and got a little extension. But, not a total reprieve. Hence the yard work today. The yard didn't really need mowing, but since I was out I did it anyway.
Now, I'm off to continue nesting.....then later, a trip to the grocery store and figuring out my new washing machine!

The seller is actually renting back the house from me for a couple of days - her apartment wasn't ready until tomorrow. So, come Sunday evening, I think it'll really feel like I am a homeowner!!

All in all, it is a pretty positive report, although the inspector has to point out each and every place where the house doesn't meet current building codes. With a house built in 1955, there are lots of little things. But that didn't surprise me at all. There are a couple of things that we are going to try and get the seller to pay to repair, but even if they don't agree, I'll just figure out how to pay for them myself! So, I think this move is really gonna happen.
I've started accumulating boxes and started packing -- with mom's help of course! I've got 9 boxes down so far and many, many more to go. Better get busy!!
