Mine

Yesterday, after a little over a month of what seemed like the longest days ever, days in which I spent more time at Kinko's printing and copying and faxing than I did at the copy center when I was in college, and days capped by night after night of being unable to sleep from my excitement, I closed on this house.

It has been a while since I sat at a conference table but there I was yesterday, pen in hand, signing and putting my initials on piece of paper after piece of paper.  Finally, after my hand was numb from initialing that and signing this, and then more of this and more of that, I was handed these.

And then? After hands were shaken and hugs were given, it was time for a little celebration.

Wow! Very very nice. I would say that I am proud of you but it seems weird since we don't know each other. What a great accomplishment. I also cannot wait to see sneak peeks into your new home with your beautiful Cheyenne.

Not that you have anything else to do while you're moving, but give us a peek inside when you can. A new home is so exciting!
