Ahhh! That’s right – it happened today. After lots of signatures, I’m finally a home owner – and just two days later than I thought I would be one. It did put kind of a kink in things not closing on Wednesday – like, by today, we would have had ALL (or close to all) of the painting down in the house… instead, we only got as far as taping the house off to be painted.
Tomorrow morning, we are getting the moving around 9am, heading over the Steph’s and getting her stuff, then coming to my parents house to get mine and Adam’s stuff for the truck, then heading off to my house (I still just love saying that, MY house – love it Anyways, I think it’s going to be a whirlwind of a weekend, so I wanted to get to you guys tonight (this morning…?) to update you.
Closing went relatively smooth. Of course, since the house was bank owned, the only people at closing were myself, my mom, my realtor Lennae, my loan officer Matt, and the closer Samantha (Adam had to work). No one from the bank showed up, we knew they wouldn’t. They were probably scared anyways, putting us through the run around… a-holes. Haha
After about an hour and a half, I had signed my name about a billion times and then Samantha said, “Congratulations!” That was wonderful.
I’m actually pretty pleased with myself. I don’t mean to sound conceited… but I guess hard work DOES pay off. Granted, I’ve only lost 9.2 pounds – but I’m really happy with that. I almost hit my 10 – I’ll shoot for it next week. My belly is still not my favorite – I think I look a little pregnant… but WHATEVER! Haha
Okay… I have thought about this for about .5 seconds, but I’m just going to go for it. I’m starting a new chapter in my life with my house… why not on here too…? If you’re a frequent reader of my blog, you know I don’t announce my weight to the world. Why? Because I’m ashamed, of course, and you never know who might stumble across this (like Adam… shudder – he doesn’t know what I weigh… that scares me. But he loves me for me… so what am I afraid of..?). And you never know who might have something not-so-nice to say… right? Well, those are fears of mine. But I know you guys won’t say anything discouraging about my weight, so I trust telling you. You guys are here to support me. So I don’t think telling you my current weight is 216.8 is going to change anything. So, there ya have it. It’s out there. It’s public knowledge. Ughhh.. I’m feeling nervous to press “publish” now. This is a big step for me…
Anyways friends, tomorrow is a looooooong day for me and it’s already 2:07am – I need to get some beauty sleep! I’ll update you as often as I can. Thank you guys for being you. You’re all so amazing, I appreciate you.
