Closing Time

I know who I want to take me home
I know who I want to take me home
I know who I want to take me home
Take me home.....

Closing Time - every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end.

Closing for the house got bumped up to 9 a.m. this morning, so after signing my name so many times that I actually ended up spelling it incorrectly I was so nervous... we are now the proud owners of a lovely two story home in one of the "best places to live" in the country according to Money Magazine.

Wow.

Yesterday, I got notification that I would be getting a bonus based on meeting my billable hour expectation, which I expected - but it is three times what I was told it would be.

Wow.

We just got word that some agricultural family farm land that Michael's father left him will likely be selling for nearly $5-$8,000 more an acre than we had expected. We're going to turn his interest in those proceeds over into investment in a lake house.

Wow.

I am so amazed that there simply aren't words.

Honestly though, it's nice to see somebody dealing with IF not get the short end of the stick all the time.
