The last time, we did that song and dance, was for the other house and the lender came back with an additional 10k needed to close, a few hours before that scheduled closing! Really?! Did they think would could just pluck that money out of our behinds? Yea, no, that didn't work out.
We waited with baited breath, hoping it would not be another disappointment.
Alas, the numbers were almost on target and we raced down to the bank to get a certified check. Holding that check, made out to our title company, made it all real... almost surreal. I know people buy houses everyday but for me... for us... it was a big deal. Another milestone in our journey in life together.
We can't move in right away as there's some work that needs to be done first. The biggies, new electric and heating. Those are kinda important. Also, new exterior paint, remodeled kitchen, replacing windows and new insultation in the attic are also part of the beautifying. So we're looking at about 60-90 days, weather permitting.

Once that's all done, we can move in and we can start making a house our HOME!
