So, after all the excitement and six days of, “We’re closing tomorrow . . . no, no, we’re not . . . we’ll close the next day,” we finally got to sign papers.

And can I just say, it was pretty anti-climactic. At the end, it was like, “Go have fun painting!” It seemed like we should have gotten a small model of the house or some skywriting. At the very least a t-shirt that says “I’m a HOMEOWNER!” All we got was a handshake. And a house payment.

Everyone keeps telling us . . . welcome to the real world.

(I’m excited nonetheless.)

    Yeah, that too. We’ll be on a first-name basis with the people at Lowe’s. 😉

    I hear ya.. At least when we bought our place, our realtor gave a gift certificate to a nice french restaurant that Allison and I frequent. A Home Depot or Lowe’s one would have been more apropos.. (tinted primer.. always.. tinted primer)

  5. I sat in on the closing of my house in Tallahassee. It was weird, stressful and terribly anti-climactic. But when it was over and I was able to drive home… I was thrilled.

    Thanks for the tip, Gary!

    (Brian, shut the heck up! But, uh, don’t do it until after you’ve finished helping us paint.)
