Coming Out of Left Field

It's a done deal!

We had the closing on our house yesterday afternoon, which despite all the signing and handing over of really big checks was a good experience. The sellers showed up, which was a surprise, and turned out to be a really nice couple (interracial, like us, but straight). The sellers' attorney was nice too, even pulling out pictures of his new grandson to show everyone.

The bank was a little on the slow side, which made things exciting for a while. Our lawyer got the paperwork late (stupid of the lender to wait until the morning of closing to say, "Oh, I can't get in touch with one of your employers"), and then hit traffic on his way in from the Cape. But everything's signed and registered, and we're officially homeowners. Yay!
