It's been a busy day!

As you know, yesterday the branch manager called late afternoon to tell us that we wouldn't be closing at 10AM, but that she was sure we would close sometime today.  About 10:30 this morning she calls to let me know they are GOOD TO GO and asked whether we wanted 12PM or 1PM.  Well duh, we needed to be in there ASAP so Mike could run off to basketball practice afterwards, so we chose the 12PM appointment.  Thank goodness we picked the earlier time because it took TWO HOURS to close.  It took us about 45 minutes to sign all the paperwork, but towards the end, our settlement specialist noticed that our 2nd trust on the VHDA paperwork was more than it should be.  So she took all our paperwork to get a second set of eyes.  After 15 minutes she comes back with bad news.  Turns out VHDA was insisting it had to be the larger amount (about $200 difference) which meant they had to redo about half of the paperwork so we could sign it all over again.  Redoing the paperwork took about 35 minutes and it took another 10 minute to sign it AGAIN and then she made copies for us.  I am so happy that part is all over with!  WE ARE HOME OWNERS!!



Once we left NVR, Mike ran off to practice and I headed on over to the house.  I got there and look what I found!


An awesome gift basket from Lauren and Adam!  We are so grateful to have such an amazing team!!  Thank you so much Lauren and Adam for being there for us, even if it was just letting us vent!  You ROCK!

I unloaded a few items from my car and promptly got to work calling the utilities to get everything set up and I took a quick trip over to the post office to get our mailbox keys.

I took Friday off so the blinds guy, and FIOS guy could come in and do their thing and also so I could paint a few rooms and then move in on SATURDAY!!!! SOO EXCITED!!!

This post wouldn't be complete without thanking Chrissy, Kay, Carey and the NVR settlement team for working their butts off to make sure we closed today.  They really did go above and beyond.  THANKS GUYS! I'm sorry for making your lives hell the past few weeks! :P

And of course thanks to all of my blogger friends who have cheered us on to the finish line!
