Officially a homeowner

As of 5:00 p.m. on June 23rd I became a permanent Philadelphia resident because I now pay property tax. My closing finally went through. I still have mixedfeelings about it. There was so much paper flying around and so many numbers going around that I still haven't quite figured out what happened. A lot of emotions involved as well, which I think I had done a pretty good job of staying calm about other than the frustrations of renting the apartment. I do know that I got a pretty sweet deal and a pretty sweet house. I had a good team of people helping me out that offered a lot of encouragement, council, advice, support and help and want to thank them all very much for making it happen.
Come to Philly! Now there's more to see than just the Liberty Bell (though most people never really go see that anyways) Oh yeah....anyone know how to fix a refrigerator?

Congratulations! I will move Philly up on my list of places I need to visit, now that I have a place to stay. Some day I hope to also own a home- check in with me in twenty years.

Yeah! Congrats. Hope the anxiety jitters calm soon and you get in to fix & decorate mode. We will definitely come out there sometime and enjoy the new diggs.
