We're Moving! Finally! I Think!

We signed the last of the closing documents today for our house and wired the money to the escrow account so I think that makes it almost, nearly, official that we will be moving.  We are supposed to get the keys on Monday and hubby is so psyched he already has the van packed with the first load of stuff to deliver to the house.  We had a slight glitch yesterday when we went to the signing.  The lender said we would need to wire $1200 at closing so we were ready for that but when we got to the title company office the bottom line was $2800 and I nearly fell off my chair.  After (a lot) of complaining (by me) the lender, realtor, and title company lady said they would get back to us this morning and somehow that figure dropped back to $1200 so we immediately wired the money and now I think everyone is happy (especially us as $1600 extra dollars is a BIG DEAL when you are living on a limited income).  Whew.  I think we may live here forever as the process of buying a house is way too stressful to look forward to doing this again!


  1. Yay! I've been waiting to hear the news. After all that, I think I would have the van packed and ready too. Congrats!

  2. Wow! This has been such a long process, but you finally made it! I'm sure all your readers are just as anxious as I am to see your new home. Congratulations! I'm so happy for you and your hubby!!

  3. The process seems much saner in Canada-way less hoops to jump through. You have been through so much stress with this house - congratulations!
