Closed on my house on 2/23/22. I’m not sure how I feel. I want to be happy and excited, but the feeling is tempered by the reality that it’s existence is a monument to the disintegration of the family life I’ve built over the last 20 years
What I AM sure about is that for the first time since November I can actually breathe out and relax. The insane mortgage process is done. No more fast ones will be pulled and I can sleep peacefully without worrying about it all falling apart.

Ordered a fridge and a bit of furniture. Other than a few wonderful and sentimental pieces I’m bringing with me I basically have to furnish a whole house. From the first huge order I have to slow down and buy piecemeal now to watch the finances. I haven’t my a rough idea of how my new budget plays out.
Thanks everyone who’s put up with my complaining.
