Today we bought a house. Truly, today I signed for the house. With P out of the country for a few more months, I was the one who did all of the signing, which also included signing for him. This meant I signed “P Middle Name Last Name, by Rachel Last Name Last Name, attorney-in-fact” on half of a tree’s worth of documents in addition to my own name. Honestly the signing was not as overwhelming as others had made it out to be. But still, yes, it was quite a moment, and a heck of a lot of paper.
Welcome to our living room!!!! I can’t wait to get our furniture into this place!
On Monday I got to go over to the house to do a final walk through and make sure that all was fine and well with the place. It was a super rainy day here in Seattle, and after turning on the fire and wandering through the house to make sure that everything was fine, I just wanted to stay. I wanted to park myself next to the fireplace and not leave my new home. (And no, I am not in love with the orange, but it is fine for now.)
Oh kitchen! It has been so long since I last cooked a meal! I am looking forward to spending some quality time with you after I unpack.
We even have a nice little yard. It is perfect – not too big as to require too much maintenance and not too small as to be annoying. There is enough room for P to BBQ and for my mom’s dogs to romp when they come to visit.
While I signed for the house today, today is not our closing day. We close and I take possession of it on Friday. I can’t believe that we have a home once again.
