I did it. I'm a homeowner. OMG, what have I done?

Seriously, the closing was this morning and my realtor, loan officer and title officer made this whole process ridiculously easy. I'd heard the horror stories about finding a house, the loan process, the inspection, etc. I didn't have any of that and, frankly, for that I feel very blessed. The three issues, minor really, that came up in the inspection were handled quickly by the sellers and the repairs were complete as of yesterday afternoon.

I have a flooring company coming out tomorrow to give me an estimate in putting in hardwood floors in the great room, replacing the carpet in the master bedroom and maybe the carpet in the front hall and remaining bedrooms. A finishing contractor, who is also a SCAdian, is coming out on Saturday to give us an estimate on the painting. If all goes well, we'll be moving on December 11th.

The house is mine, mine, mine.

Yay! Really, with the exception of the flaky sellers on the first house we loved, it was totally painless.

Congrats and good luck!

Can it be any harder than having been queen?

All in all, I'd have to say this process was easier than being Queen. It was compressed into a one month period, involved no drama, and I didn't want to strangle anyone when it was over.

YAY! You haz a house!!! {happy dance and huge excited hugs if you want them}

Ahem. :) I'm really excited and glad for the two of you.

(PS. Paying the movers will be *totally* worth it. ;) I'd recommend the company we went with, but I think they only work in/around Houston. They got an extra large tip for using intelligence and dollies. ;) )
