House delays


My very small inspection delay has turned into a longer delay due to an inspector's inability to get his butt out to my house.

So that means I'm living in my surrogate house basically until my St. Maarten vacation in a week. Don't get me wrong, my surrogate home is lovely. And I'm eternally grateful for it. But I would really, really like to live in my newly renovated house.

So this is disappointing.

However, let's look at the bright side:
  • Things have been crazy busy at work and this gives me time to organize and schedule a few things that I haven't gotten to yet.
  • The kitchen will be installed by the time I move in.
  • I won't have to pay for a Rogers bill for a long while now
  • I will have a lovely vacation before I have to worry about painting and doing all the little fix-it things to my new house.
In the grand scheme of things, this all works out well and there have been very few surprises along the way. So now I'm off to sort out those extra bits I need to do: selling some appliances, furnace servicing, duct cleaning, paint and backsplash selection...

If anyone wants to buy a perfectly good refrigerator, please let me know.

With regard to your comment on my blog NYMBY..
Calling somebody a NIMBY (Not in My Backyard) can't be taken seriously when the person making the accusation lives nowhere near the backyard in question. It was also extremely unfair to Guildwood residents who are being insulted because the anemometer meeting took place in their neighbourhood. It could just as easily have been Pickering, Port Union, Cliffside, Birchcliff or Beach residents being insulted on Monday night if the anemometer meeting had been held in their communities.
We want wind farms to play a key role in future power plans for Ontario, as we are sure solar, natural gas, nuclear and (probably most importantly) conservation also will.
However, there are good and bad locations for wind farms. Where they are built needs to discussed and studied in an honest and reasonable manner. We need to be careful as to who is entrusted with the responsibility of building these giant turbines and exactly where they are going to be located.
Turning this important debate into finger-pointing and sign-waving does no good at all.
