Closing on our House

Yes, I said it. OUR house.

Our mortgage FINALLY went through on December 22nd, and we were told we could close as early as Dec 23rd. Since I was already filling in for a colleague at work that day (not to mention it was Christmas weekend, and we weren't going to be around to move), we decided to set the closing date for Wednesday, Dec. 29th instead.

This is actually happening :)

After 4.5 years of marriage and living with my in-laws, we are finally getting our own home.

I am beyond excited.

Today I also found out that our good friends, (whom we met at Marriage Encounter in February, and they became infertility clients of mine) - are pregnant. She JUST had surgery with Dr S in November, and this was the first cycle since surgery :) And the 2nd clients of mine who conceived on the first cycle after surgery! This is such great news! It's a great week all around.

Way to redeem yourself, 2010! (Well, maybe not fully, but at least we're on an upswing...)
