Closing done. I signed and initialled so many times that I barely recognized my name by the end.
It was fairly anticlimatical considering there were no keys exchanged and I already live in the house. I feel like I ought to do something special to celebrate, but my back hurts and I'm awfully tired. I think more strawberry shortcake is the best I can come up with.
Now that closing has been accomplished it's time to move on to the construction phase. I can't say that I'm anxious to start that process. I'll see if I can get FF to phone Contractor to see when he plans to start work (technically work must begin within 30 days of closing).
I'm going to have to start buying the Sunday paper so I can clip my name from the Real Estate section. I own my own home!
(Also worthy of note, this is my 200th post! Wow!)
