Our first house. Wow. We now own our first house. Incredible. We did our walk-through this afternoon and then went to closing - where we signed our names a few times intialed a few more - and bam - the house is ours! My first act as a new homeowner wasn't very glamorous though: I pooper scooped. Silly people didn't do it before they moved out and I didn't want Rory running around a dirty yard while I worked inside. I also took down a cabinet door today so the microwave can be installed tomorrow and started testing paints to see what I like best for the cabinet color. It is hard to believe the house is ours! Right now it doesn't look like much though. Immediately after closing, the painters came in and started taping and covering the house. Every floor is covered in paper/plastic, every wall is covered with plastic, there is tape over all of the trim, etc. It doesn't look to great - but it will soon! I wanted to give a shout-out to all of the people who helped us with the home buying process - they have all been fantastic!
