In 2040, I'll be 57

Tuesday, March 2, 2010
The never ending saga that is known as purchasing a house is over.
O-V-E-R!

Here's a preview of pictures of us at the title company, signing our lives away until 2040! I stumbled over my words when the title guy said, "first payment in May 2010 and last payment in May 2040."

Me: "Whhhhhatt? 2040? I'll be..well, I'll be 57!
BF: Laughs at me. Then tells the man, who is now confused by my reaction and realization that I will be 57 one day, to continue with the explanation of whatever crazy document he had in front of me with huge numbers.

The BF handing me the check. The largest check that either one of us written mind you.



Me looking at the check to verify that I see THAT number


Hiding behind the check that we are nervous to turn over


We turned it over and will legally be homeowners tomorrow. Wowza! Here's to having cool and decent neighbors who don't mind a little Britney, Madonna and Lady Gaga mash-up in the summer time for their listening pleasure.

Congrats.

It is a TON of work and a TON of headaches but I haven't regretted buying my house once since it happened.
