The Closing went well.
Actually the entire day went well.
From when our Real Estate agent took us to lunch in a fantastic new place that we will no doubt spend too much time in from now on.
I see me in a rocking chair, on the porch of this restaurant on a summer evening, having a cocktail and watching my new neighbors go by.
The Closing involved my husband and I and our 2 attorneys ... don't ask me why we merit two, that is just the way it was.
And the sellers attorney.. a funny old gentleman that I liked right away .. especially when he was talking to the (difficult) seller and he said .. "I have other things to do today "..
So the attorneys were good.
The seller, not so much.. so I feel we were all very lucky she stayed home and was just annoying by telephone.
I signed my name more times in this closing than we did in Argentina.
That still has me puzzled.
But it still means we own the house ..
Then we went to the house to see it and ended up deciding to have the interiors painted.
Today was Pick Your Paint Day.
This is always hard for me.
It is never the color on the wall that it is on that tiny little paper chip.
And on top of that difficulty, I had 2 men with me! ... being patient !!.. my god the pressure !
So I chose .. something cream colored.
We are thinking of what to do with the gardens ...which are wild and need a firm hand and a hot tub ...that is going to be sold and there is a need for some more bird feeders and the pool needs a floating deck and we need a new kitchen sink and a new front door and french doors where the sliding doors stand in the dining room and ......
You might be glad that I will be too busy to blog much.
