Melanie and I spent the past 2 1/2 weeks renovating and updating things in her house. John and I are buying it as a home in Oregon. We both learned a lot and, thanks to our good friend chocolate, we got it all done.
The mortgage company sent the appraiser to the house on Jan. 19th and was not OK with us leaving some things unfinished, like the bathrooms. Melanie and I had thought it would be OK since we were the buyer and the seller, but the bank didn’t like it. We had to finish things in order to get the loan.
Now that the work is done I can get on with the usual things I do in life: like taking care of kids, doing homeschool, creating art, and starting a business.
