So now with very sore hands and a signature I no longer recognize, Jimmy and I are officially first-time home owners. It is still hard to believe that we actually managed to do it. We should get our keys and officialy take over the property on Saturday. It has been a very long process (I think we started around February 2007 - with a little detour to DC in the middle) but the wait was well worth it. I think I toured every house for sale in Portland so I have no doubt we found the right one for our family.
We will officially be moving in the weekend of 8/21-23. Yippy!!!
