It's Official!

I'm a Homeowner! Or, as Vickie said, a Mortgage-owner.
Surprisingly, I don't feel any different. If anything, I'm relieved to be paying towards a mortgage rather than throwing away rent each month. Now I have something to show for myself! Although seeing payments until 2039 was a little weird.

My mom told me she's so proud of me (and my older sister) for accomplishing so much and being responsible adults. We're both happily married with great husbands, jobs, dogs, and homes... but I guess it just feels natural. I'm so lucky to have conventional, happily married parents who set a great example for me (and my sister and my in-laws are both also happily married). They have always been great influences in all aspects of life - health, education, spirituality, and loving relationships.

So anyway, this weekend will be a 6 mile run, painting the two bathrooms, and FILING FOR MY 8K TAX CREDIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. Congrats!! I know what you mean about it feeling weird to see payments listed through 2039. Just try not think about how old you'll be in 2039!! Yikes! :)

  2. Congratulations....welcome to home-ownership!

    First suggestion....don't ever look at or think about that huge number they showed you when you had to sign all the paperwork about how much your mortgage will really be when your loan is done. We're all living in mansions! LOL!
