It's official. I just got home from closing on our first condo purchase. I told my husband, it was like renewing our vows. I signed my name and initials so many times I said, "we are NEVER getting divorced."
It is a nice feeling to know that we have been working towards this goal for almost 9 years, and it has finally come to fruition. I always knew I would be a homeowner one day, but I never imagined that home to be a 2-bedroom condo in Queens!
As we walked home in the sleet/ice/hail storm that has descended upon our 64 degrees from yesterday, we held hands and bowed our heads against the wind. Walking through that storm together, hand in hand was the perfect metaphor for what we have been through and the life that is ahead of us. Together, we can do anything.
Now begins the moving in part. Tonight I will go over to the new digs and clean and tape for tomorrow's painting job. I am looking forward to our new bedroom and the light periwinkle blue walls. It will be so soothing.
Also this morning, right before the closing, I had an audition for the 1st National Tour of the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, the part of Rona. I feel that it went well, so that was a nice beginning of our closing day.
