Closed on a house yesterday! I'm more than excited, I'm ecstatic. Spent the day painting and mowing the lawn with our new lawn mower. It couldn't handle the foot tall grass very well, but it eventually got the job done. I had to continuously empty the grass collector but that was okay.
Seeing kids playing in the neighborhood brought the realization to me that I'm no longer a child. Buying a house and tending to it is a very grown up thing. But I'm ready to be an adult. Now I just have to act like one and we'll be all set ;-).
