The New House!
It has been just over 2 weeks since I closed and 1 week since I moved. I have been busy! I am so glad to have this closing business behind me. It was interesting. When I bought a house in Kansas, it was pretty simple. I signed some papers with my lender, and then my agent handed keys to me. Easy peasy. I guess on the East Coast you have to go through attorneys which takes forever. We had to take the girls with us, and we were in there for ninety minutes right smack in the middle of nap time. For some reason, the money wasn't wired on time so we had to wait. And wait. And wait. The good news about the whole thing is we actually received money at closing. We went from thinking our closing costs were going to be around $200 (which is awesome) to receiving a check at closing. I was pretty happy. It helped cover our moving expenses, and other costs. I am glad to have all that behind us so now we can make this house our own. The girls have light purple rooms (chosen by Hannah). We are trying to organize and plan what to work on next. I am terrible at decorating. Terrible. I have no idea what to do or where to start. If any of you have some great ideas, please let me know. I looked on Pinterest, but my eyes started to glaze over after I mentally calculated the costs of most of those projects.
