We FINALLY closed on the house December 30, yes, squeezing into the 2010 calendar/tax year, which is shocking considering how many ways the process was dragged out; from the underwriters coming up with a new piece of paperwork needed every week (including a letter from me explaining why a past employer spelled my name wrong on a W-2), to our loan officer sending me the wrong person’s final commitment to sign (I should have taken it – it was a more expensive house!) to our broker completely disappearing off the map (well, not exactly – she went to Hawaii). Everyone on “our team” gets a big fat “F” in my opinion.
Anyway, that frustration is over, and we’re moving in this weekend. Which means time to decorate – the inside at least. But I can also do some more dreaming about what our beautiful yard is going to look like come Spring…
