For those keeping score at home, I officially became a landowner today with the completion of sale. That’s right. Chris and Marnie are now the proud owners of a mortgage and possible lifelong debt. Although we don’t actually take possession until noon on Saturday, we are both pretty stoked.

We’re still a fair bit away from being ready to move, which is somewhat worrisome due to the fact that we move on Sunday, but I think we’ll be fine. We provided our current landlord notice for July 31st, so we actually have time in between to ensure we get everything moved out, cleaned up, and sorted. But still, y’know? And I also guess that this means that I’m officially a grown-up or something like that. Sure it took me a few years longer than most, but I think owning a home and getting engaged all in one year is a good sign for a 31 year old who would like to think he’s still 13.

What do you think? 😀
