Day 5: A first time for everything

November 26, 2011

I keep worrying that the thrill of a new home will wear off and I’ll regret buying this house. I had inspections today so I figured at least I’ll have an out without losing my $1,000 earnest deposit.
But as I wandered the house for three hours discovering its imperfections, I realized I
loved it more with every step. What a relief.

Branden from Buyers Home Inspections was great – informative, thorough, friendly. He even got my dad’s approval. Aside from a few issues, the inspection went well.

In the process, my brain was crammed with new bits of information. I’ve never given much thought to furnaces, but was surprised to learn that flames are ignited to heat the house. That was my favorite detail.

I learned a lot today. My decision to buy this house was 100 percent affirmed for the first time. But there’s one more first. I stood in the same room with both of my biological parents for the first time in more than 20 years today.
