one monkey down, two to go

It looks like things are coming together and we are about to get one huge monkey off of our backs: buying a house! Our loan officer called me at the office about an hour ago with good news. The title work is in and we can close next week. We'll be closing on Thursday, March 18, just one day before my surgery. I am so excited that this is finally coming to an end. I realize that we still have a few weeks of work to do on the house, so we won't actually be living there until mid April, but this is one less thing I have to worry about right now.

In just eight days, we will be homeowners. In nine, I'll have this mysterious lump out of my body. And sometime within the next nine months, I will be pregnant.

(Trying to keep up that positivity here . . .)

YAY that is awesome!!! You won't believe how easy it is to actually "close". Just sign your name a bunch of places and then BAM you're done. =) And it'll be so nice, you can start moving some stuff in, start getting things you want/need. It'll be perfect. Then you can get pregnant! =)
