Today I did something I have never done before and do not plan to do again for many years: I signed contracts to buy an apartment!!!

My lawyer called me at 10am, telling me that after all these weeks of setbacks and drawbacks, and general bumps in the road, the seller was planning to leave town for a week and a half tomorrow afternoon, and [livejournal.com profile] pootrootbeer & I should come in at 12:30 to sign contracts, or this was going to drag on.

And so we did. Signed our names a dozen times each. And wrote great big checks. And have to start getting a million other things in place (mortgage commitment letter, Co-Op Board package, homeowners insurance).

Holy Crap! I'm going to be a homeowner! Together with [livejournal.com profile] pootrootbeer! Holy crap!

So when's the housewarming?

Hmm, I dunno. January?

Then of course we'll have the house rewarming once we get all the work done we want to do.

We have a new plan for the birthdays party- will email you re: that.

And yeah, don't remind me of the packing. We actually have 2 months before the move- it will be the week after Thanksgiving.

But yeah, gah!

So you have been busy and I haven't wanted to bother you, but I was wondering where you were moving to. I hope I can visit at some point soon. I found your birthday present the other day. :-) If you need help with anything at all let me know.

love ya
