Grace and I called Hubby when we got home today. Its the daily afternoon routine: Pick up Grace at day care, drive home, pet the dog and put her outside, and call Daddy to say hello. All of this before making dinner and getting started on bedtime routines.
Today was slightly different. Not the routine but the conversation with Hubby.
While talking to him, Hubby sent the final, signed paperwork to the mortg.age guy. Currently, we are set to close on the house on March 28. The 4 year anniversary of Kati.e's (my mother in law) passing. It has taken 4 years. Enough said on that.
Its exciting. Its scary. Its making me feel like a "real" adult. You know, the kind that has to pay a :gulp: mortg.age every month for what seems like the rest of my life.
Our last payment is February 14, 2038. And that seems like it will never come. It will someday I guess. That last payment is $2.73 more than all the other payments. That additional expediture will be the best Valen.tine's Day present ever!
And so the journey of being "real" homeowners begins....even though we have been living here for years.
