Nacho Libre

Is this not the funniest thing you’ve ever seen??? Can’t wait for it to come out. Jack Black is the best.

It’s Official

We’re homeowners!!!

Everything went off without a hitch! Well, if you exclude the fact that Rob was up all night puking and shitting and that we got lost on the way there and forgot to bring our checkbook. HA! We’re still not sure what the deal is with Rob – I’m kind of thinking it might be nerves/stress, but he was REALLY sick. Poor thing. Thankfully he was well enough to sit as a passenger for the ride there and to sign his name on all the documents to make it all official and stuff.

Can you believe the whole thing took, like, 40 minutes? That’s IT! It was so amazingly easy and painless. I don’t believe a single horror story I’ve heard before now. ;-) No, major props to our mortgage broker. This guy worked his ass off to ensure we had a smooth experience. He’s got the best story, too. When he bought his first house, he had a nightmare of an experience and he vowed that he was going to make a difference in the field. So he turned into a mortgage broker and makes it his job to see that no one else goes through the pain he did. Isn’t that awesome? If you’re in the Philadelphia area and are in the market for buying a home, I highly recommend him: Martin Green Mortgage Broker.

Now bring on the mortgage payments! HA!

The skin on my fingers is just peeling off – all the way up to my fingernails. Lovely, no?

I took pictures of my fingers the other day on my cellphone. Want to see?

Yes, I know my nails look awful. I plan on going back for acrylics soon. Very soon!

No sign for you!

Ever since we signed all the contracts on the house, I’ve been driving by – hoping to see a “SOLD” sign out front. I was disappointed every time – that same “For Sale” sign remained up despite my wishing very hard to the contrary. This past week, though, something changed. Still no “SOLD” sign, though. Instead, there are no signs at all! All gone! House definitely not for sale. That’s all good. But, I still feel robbed. Buying a house sure isn’t like the Century 21 commercials where the happy real estate agent takes the buyers out front and places the “SOLD” sign on the top of the “For Sale” signage and everyone smiles pretty for the camera. Dang it.
