So, we had our inspection this week and I had a family friend who's a contractor check the place out (for a rough estimate of cost). It's in worse shape than we thought. The good news (?) is that there's only 2-3 "big" problems. Two of them require further/closer inspection so we won't know the full extent of the problems until we can get them looked at by specialists. The bad news is that there's a TON of minor problems on top of that. I'm getting overwhelmed and frustrated. I know I got into this with unrealistic expectations (furthered by FMIL/FFIL) but if I hear one more person say "it's not major" or "it's not that big a problem" I'm going to go crazy and scream.
I feel a little better now, thanks for letting me vent!
My deal is that I am going to murder your puppies and piss on your rainbows.
