Done Deal

The agent called this morning around 8 am to remind us what to bring to the closing at 4 pm - drivers licenses and a big fat certified check for the amount due. I was functioning on an adrenaline buzz all day knowing we would be homeowners by the end of it. At 2:30 we met at the house for the walk-through. At 4 we were in the signing room at the title company. By 5:10 we were on our way home, and the combined relief and disbelief sent me into an emotional crash and I almost fell asleep in the car.

But we had one more thing on the agenda. We got my mom who was watching the girls, my dad, my brother & his daughter who were in town to join us at the new house for a maiden meal: watermelon slices and Pakistani takeout from Ravi Kabob.


Just the first of many, many happy dinners to come!

Disco Mom said...

I know, dude. Especially in comparison to so many other Arlington homes we looked at - built in the 1930's-50's with small rooms and VERY small kitchens, how can I function in there? This one was like a dream with the forever counters. Just imagine them filled with cooling racks...
