This should have been posted on Sunday, but . . .

Thanks to WP’s known issue, it didn’t go.  Here is some delayed future-first-time-homeowner angst for you.

I’m still waiting – anxiously waiting! – for my HUD inspector to get back to me with a list of things that have to be done to get this house into condition where HUD will be OK with me moving in to it.  The list will also have a lot of my wishes on it, priced out.  I’m guessing that a lot of my wishes will remain just that – wishes.  That’s fine by me.  I’m not trying to turn Elephant Culo into some HGTV dream house.

This will be, Lord willing and the creek don’t rise, my first house.  I’ve been a renter, a roommate, a couch-crasher, and for nine short months, a dorm resident up to this point.  While I have champagne tastes (and caviar dreams!), my expectations are a lot lower than that.  I want to get this house safe and clean and move the hell in.

I hope that’s not too much to ask.  I hope the big expenses aren’t bigger than my budget.  Hope, hope, hope, wish, wish, wish, pray, pray, pray.
