Back on THE House track

Ok, the internal argument has been going on for a week now… do I call the inspection company back?  Do I pursue investing in a 100 year old home?  Am I out of my mind to think I can rent a home out for weddings and make a profit in a decent amount of time so as to not go broke in the process?  Am I nuts?  I mean, really, really NUTS?

Do I really WANT to go into business for myself – even if it would be part time?  Do I want to strap myself financially and time wise?  Am I REALLY NUTS?

So… I called the inspection company one more time… I had called them right before Christmas.  They did let me know that a person had it inspected in May of 2010.  That person did not purchase the house.  Why?  Who knows?  He moved to Macon.  Location?  Too much expense to fix this place up compared to something in Macon?  Hard to know, I’m sure that I want to find out…  So.  I’m down to cutting deals with the inspection folks if the prior inspection won’t be released to me.  Shoot, I would be willing to pay the other guy ½ of the cost for the original inspection…. Otherwise, it will be a whole new inspection.  Sigh.

Am I really, really nuts?  Yep, I think I am.

Snow er, I mean... ICE Days in Georgia

... it's been COLD in the south the last few days... and icy!  Burrr COLD
But fun too.  Sunday the girls school called at about 4pm that school was closed for Monday due to threat of ice.  I scoffed.  Then the base called at about 8pm and said the base was shut down for threat of ice, I scoffed HARDER and louder.  Then Butch's alarm went off at 5:30 am and I could HEAR the sleet hitting the window, so I got up to see what it looked like and THIS greeted my sleepy little eyes:
and it didn't stop for a while :o)  WOW - the weatherman was right on the money... and not really a lot of the fluffy stuff in there...
So, did I do work around the house from the goal list?
Enjoying the GOOD life and the only way to have an "ice day" ever :o)
And even invited the neighbors over too :o)
HOWEVER, boys, it would seem are insane!!  The decided to join the polar bear club while out there... I just laughed and took pictures as ALL boys went into the 40 some odd degree pool! 
Looks like he thought twice about that, AFTER the fact, eh?

They all survived... burrr!
