we closed on the house yesterday! yay! we’re homeowners! let me tell ya…tuesday (the day before closing) had to have been the longest day of my life. and the most stressful!! the mortgage co. wouldn’t close until the termite treatment was complete. well that didn’t happen until we actually were in the closing! talk about taking it down to the wire. jeez…

but all’s well now. we had lunch with jon’s dad then ran some errands, loaded up my rav and took down all of our pictures and mirrors etc. mom and hale met us over there with champagne and we went with them and morgan to showmar’s. went home and just collapsed into bed. what a day! it sucked when we had to go to the apt to sleep though. we wanted to stay in the house.

moving on saturday! off work tomorrow through wednesday.

packed all weekend. getting down to the wire. jo…

packed all weekend. getting down to the wire. jon unearthed a crate filled with cassettes. i was looking through them and was delighted to find: madonna…like a prayer, kwame…a day in the life, inxs….kick, terrance trent d’arby…oh no! i can’t remember the name of that tape, but it has wishing well and if we all get to heaven etc. needless to say, i was psyched!! i listened to those all weekend while packing. still remembered the words too.

snafu!!! argh. jon went to the reinspection this…

snafu!!! argh. jon went to the reinspection this morning. you know, i’ve thought that while mildly amusing, his wanting to be at the inspections of the house were borderline anal. but i’m glad he went this morning because just 5 days til closing and we find out the termite inspection never happened! what’s up wid dat! oh lord i’m a gansta wanna be. anyway, i’m just a weee bit nervous now. i want this to go well so badly. we both are so excited and just about all packed up and this happens. plus there are still a couple of things on the focus list the current homeowner has not fixed yet. one of them being that there’s no power to the ceiling fan outlet in the master bedroom. she’s had 2 months to get everything done here. please let this work out. say a prayer.
