Endsleigh specialise in Home Contents Insurance for people in the UK

The joys of home ownership:UPDATE


After calls to the bank and the lawyer that handled our closing, it appears that the bank made a major miscalculation and we DON’T owe an extra $200 every month. They haven’t officially retracted the higher payment notice, but supposedly the issue is fixed. Hurrah!

In other news, we got plenty done this weekend. Teague and Don finished the gutters and jacked up the sidewalk near the driveway – the concreate slabs were pitched in toward the house, directing water toward the foundation. Teague put wet or dry sealant on the back roof seams to keep water out. I primed the office walls and puttied/painted the face of the kitchen cabinets. Two out of three kitchen curtains are finished and hanging. The Christmas tree is up (and looks great). And the dogs played to the point of exhaustion yesterday. It was a productive weekend!

Whew, that’s a relief! I felt a similar shot of panic when our insurance turned out to be almost twice what the loan officer predicted based on the average.

Yeah, I don’t take news like this well – I’m the one who freaks out and starts ranting and raving, and Teague is the one who just nods and waits for the storm to pass. Luckily, it was cleared up pretty quickly and I did not lose my mind too badly :)

Mindy, you have the same relationship dynamic as us. I am the ranter and raver; he is the one who chants, “Don’t worry; everything will work out.”

You think it’s any coincidence that us type-a’s are the ones documenting and researching every little detail about our houses? Probably not ;)

We love to hear from you, dear readers.
