We finally bought a house. It’s actually the second house we made an offer on, but the first house on the list that we liked (if that makes sense). Anyway, it’s pretty solid, despite the absence of a Bat Cave or secret lair. And there’s no skeletons in the closet or a Buffalo Bill lotion pit, among many other positive features.
Actually, the whole house buying process went rather smoothly. Many years ago I launched “Operation: Clean Credit Rating” which has paid off immensely during this transaction, though was nowhere near as fun as “Operation: Destroy Credit Rating”, launched back in my early twenties. I think the hardest part about becoming a new homeowner is coming to terms with the fact that we actually bought a house. Closing date is still several weeks away, so in many ways it still doesn’t seem real. I’m used to downloading songs off iTunes and rocking them on my iPod a moment later, or gadget shopping on Amazon and getting the device the next morning. So waiting six weeks for something that I just bought seems painfully s-l-o-w.
We won’t technically be Orlando residents, by the way. Nope. LLR headquarters will soon be located in the nearby suburb of Maitland (which has its own rockin’ theme song).
