Home Owners

Well, as of this morning Joanna and I are now officially home owners. After far too much stressing over the last few months about obtaining a mortgage and getting appraisals and whatnot we finally closed on our house. We signed and initialed a ridiculous number of forms ("Here, this one is in triplicate, please initial all 15 pages and sign and date at the bottom of page 14"), and handed over the largest check I've ever held, but it's done and we're extremely happy about it.

It's a little weird, we've been living here since November so we don't have the traditional "get the keys at the closing and run over to unlock the door and go into your house for the first time" kind of experience. On the bright side, we don't actually have to move anything in, which is always nice ;-)
