This morning I put on a dress and curled my hair because it was a very important day . . . .
At 9 am we had an appointment to sign papers on our house!! I can hardly believe it, but it is true!
On the drive to the Title company my ipod shuffled through the most perfect selection of songs
Lady Gaga's Edge of Glory
Beautiful Day by U2
and Stronger by Kelly Clarkson
I would have been singing along at the top of my lungs, but my throat is pretty scratchy.
I drove in disbelief. Is this really happening? The house is ours? And I couldn't hold back tears of happiness and relief.
8 months, people.
We've had a few hiccups just in the last 2 weeks, trying to get to this point. And today was no exception. (Incorrect forms, missing forms, yada, yada, yada)
But we made it through. And even discovered one little (big) surprise that worked in our favor. I told Scott, in his perplexity, that it was a blessing for all of our patience and long-suffering. :)
By 10:40am the papers were signed. Funds are being wired. It will be recorded tomorrow. And like that . . . . the house is ours.
I drove home and couldn't shake the smile on my face and the prayer of thanks in my heart.
Then my ipod gifted me with Defying Gravity and really, I felt like a weight has been lifted. We're walking on the clouds around here!
