being patient

I am being patient with the house. It is weird to complain about how long things take when you don't actually know how long they should take.

Everything has been going smooth so far, the inspections were no super big deal. The mortgage is waiting at the underwriter, they are supposed to be done with it by next week.

The lease on my apartment was up in May and my landlord wanted to sign me up for another 12 month lease. I explained that I was looking for a house to purchase at the time, and no, I couldn't really do a 12 month lease but how about we continue our month to month and I can give a 2 or 3 month notice.
She didn't bite so for June I've been staying at my parents house in my sisters old room. Flower sheets and everything.

So I'm trying to be patient. I just want to get in the house and work on it. I want to put a hedgeline in the front and maybe an apple or pear tree.

Some pictures from the appraisal:

PUT AN APPLE TREE IN HERE

Very park-like and also, next to a park.

Not included in the floorplan is the ridiculous, non-code conforming 'finished' attic. No-one may sleep in that firetrap on my watch but we can definitely do some dual upstairs/downstairs shower-time

whaaaat

each time I decide to post again I'm so surprised by how long its been since my last post.
I think the last time I posted (25Apr2011) I was just moving positions at work. I am so much happier now, running around on my feet all the time, and working with a lot more people.

For four years I was in this control hallway with pretty much the same dozen people with no windows. It was almost like being in jail, July 4th looked the same as December 10th as the same as October 23rd in there: cinder block walls with a million computers and every other fluorescent bulb on [1].

Anyways, I"m pretty bad at saying what I've been doing or catching up or stuff like that.
I have a an offer accepted on a house in a potentially amazing scenario. (scenario is my word of the week. last week it was a phrase of the week. it was "respect the process")
I think you guys would collectively shit/jizz/cream if you could see this place.

I'm crossing my fingers till the inspections on Tuesday. If it inspects out, it will be so amazing.
I took today off, and as I was driving between all the appointments I had for the house stuff, I was at one point really close to crying thinking about how nice it would be to have a house. To be able to give back to my family and friends.

I feel like such a leacher now, what the hell can I do for people living in this tiny ass apartment. Now people can come over for dinner and stay over, etc and I am actually useful to people. Thats so awesome. UTILITY

Can you recognize what historical event this graffiti is referencing? I got this one right away

[1] I spent my time in jail kind of being a dick: I usually twisted the extra flourescant tubes so it wasn't so dreary where I had to spend 8 hrs a day and I also took kind of a perverse delight in outlining and dating the stains from roof drips. The best part was when co-workers would get nervous "I don't know if you're supposed to do that" or "You're crazy man." I was really fascinated with the concept of getting yelled at for drawing on stained ceiling tiles.
"YOU ARE IN TROUBLE BECAUSE YOU DREW ON BROWN-STAINED CEILING TILES!!! WE WERE SAVING THOSE TILES!!!"

My Goodness My Gooch

I've been trying out a new bike I accidentally got on eBay.
Its pretty sweet.

since last thursday I've done two 25 milers. At the end of the first I was first-ride sore, but at the beginning of Sundays ride I thought my gooch needed to be x-rayed. Funny though, everything calmed down eventually.

I think they wrote a song about just that: "Comfortably Numb"

Autumn biking

this was from a few weeks ago. It was supposed to show how supra-gorgeous the Fall was.

I'll rotate them later or something so you can see.

I'm going to DC for a friends wedding. I hope its Wedding Style fun cause I'm going to miss being at a packed 24 house.
