We Signed!

(holy crap)

Yesterday was the loan doc signing day! Chris got a Power of Attorney notarized so that I could sign for him. Apparently leaving the set for an hour to buy a house is looked down upon (kidding Chris. I love you.) He's working absolutely crazy hours. Coming home at 3 am, leaving by 8 am. And that's if he even comes home! I leave at 6:45 for work these days... so we're kind of just sharing a bed for a few hours a night. sad.

Anywho, by some miracle of God he had Friday off! His first day in almost three weeks! Which was awesome for me because apparently it's not as simple as signing my name and then signing his name. It's signing my name and then some ridiculously long sentence about who I am and who he is and why I'm signing for him. On every page.

Seems like there were fewer pages for these loan documents than the last time. But honestly, we are both such exhausted human beings at this point, we could have potentially bought the Empire State Building and not realized it.

Last time I took pictures, and this time I forgot. I had the camera and everything. And I forgot. I was somewhat stunned that the Notary was sharing all kinds of information with us about the births of her four children. And what birth control she was on when she got pregnant. And how she got her tubes tied. And what it's like when you're in labor. And that we should have four kids too. Why is that when you get married every person on the planet feels the need to give me a little punch in the arm and ask when the kids are coming with a big goofy smile?! My usually excuse is "We live in 667 square feet! Where the hell would I put it?!" But now we have 2,600 square feet... that's probably enough space for a kid. New excuse "I have two mortgages. If a kid costs more than $10 a month, I'm not going to be able to afford it."

So, closing on August 29 :-)

(holy crap)

Yay! Congrats, neighbor!! Don't forget to budget for the Supplemental Property Tax you'll be receiving in 6 months (that's on top of the normal annual property tax). We learned about this just recently. Sad. :( Bad realtor.
