So far, so good.

We met with the mortgage guy yesterday, went great. Wally is a referral from our friend Mary, and he's great to work with. When you buy a house, there are about 172 people involved. I didn't realize that Wally works directly for the bank who is lending us the (huge sum of) money – he's not a mortgage broker. So we just took that count down to 171, took out the middle man. I like it.

After talking finances, we had brunch and dropped Jack off (ha, ha, funny, I know – jack off) at PetSmart for a grooming. He was nas-ty. And since he's visiting his grandparents this weekend, we thought he better get some rub-a-dub action. Todd headed out for a *meeting* which turned out to be very successful (more on that later) and I headed to the house to join the termite guy and inspector for the (very boring) 3.5 hour inspection.

As you might expect, I had a little anxiety over this inspection. But it all turned out great! Nothing too terrible came up, so now we're just crossing fingers that they'll do what we have to ask them to do, before closing.

Did I mention that closing is April 28? Like, two weeks from tomorrow? Holy crap. Candles lit everywhere.
