Closing Date!!!

It's only been 137 days since we knew that this house was eventually going to be ours. That's over 1/3 of a year people. However, as of today our wait is over, our bank accounts are emptier, our responsibilities are greater and this house is now ours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Or it will be as soon as the lawyers complete their paperwork and hand over the keys :)

Many (many many many) more pictures coming soon oh patient blog readers...

For (potentially) entertaining (or completely boring?!) reading, here are my Facebook statuses for the past week or so:

10 days until the closing date and utilities at the new house are now set up...
Nine days until the closing date and nine boxes are packed...
Eight days until closing and the bank errands are almost done!
Seven days until closing and tonight we're hosting our last care group [church small group] gathering at our current house!!!
Six days until closing and we're going to the beach! (You weren't expecting THAT were you?!?!?!)
Four days until our closing date and we're going to get paint supplies. (Yesterday was five days until closing and I spent the day sick in bed. Boo.)
Three days until our closing date and I am starting the process of changing our address.
Two days until closing and the hot water heater in our rented house is leaking all over the laundry room. Where the packed boxes are stored, by the way.
One day until closing and I think everything is ready to go!!! (Except we still don't have hot water.)
And today's status is:
Closing date: Our bank account is much emptier but we OWN A HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for being interested in my life as I blog it and for leaving a comment. Comments make me happier than reading a good book and drinking a cold Coke. Almost :)
