Our home inspection went fairly well. There are always little things that come up, a lock that needs to be placed on the air conditioner, sliding doors that aren't working just right. And, sadly, the roof appears to need some work, probably before next winter when we hit our rainy season here in Northern California. Lucky for us, that means about 4 or 5 months before we need to get the work done. But since it's a short sale, the costs will sit with us.
For us this week, it's important to keep our eyes on the big picture. We may need to pay some up front costs for the house, but in the end we will have a home that is ours. In a way, I feel we're living in the midst of the quote I've chosen for the week:
"A rose must remain with the sun and the rain or it's lovely promise won't come true."
