Back to Work | Business Formal to Kick Off the New Year

Holiday Business Formal

Is anyone ever really “ready” to go back to work after vacation? I have had a great week off of work, the first in a long time that I wasn’t travelling during my vacation time as well. It was a week filled with family, friends, relaxing, and a lot of “getting stuff done” as well. We are in the inspection period with our house, which is really exciting but also stressful. Last week, we had a traditional inspection done (which went great, yay!) and also had a sewer inspection completed. Our new home is in a pretty old neighborhood (the house itself was built in 1912!) so apparently it’s common to have sewer pipe problems – thank goodness our realtor knows the area. This inspection turned up a shifted pipe under the property that is the owners responsibility – so we’re working on another round of negotiations, estimates to fix it, etc. Although it’s definitely daunting, I have a good feeling about all of it – Tucker & I can’t wait to get in there!!
