Today is a pretty major day for my sweet little family and me.
At 12:30pm CST, we are scheduled to become homeowners.
I say “scheduled” because google “what can go wrong at Closing?” and then try not to throw up. This is seriously THE MOST STRESSFUL THING EVER. Especially because I have no control over anything. Most especially because I have done everything I was supposed to do immediately upon being asked, but then everything spiraled into a complete sh*tshow at the last minute anyway. What the …? And positively every other person I’ve spoken to has gone through the exact same thing. You would think at some point someone would have figured out a way to NOT make it a gag-inducing, hate-fest, but whatever. WE’RE ALMOST DONE.
At 10:30am I arrive to do the final walk-through, and two hours later we will sign away our lives and all our money.
And then this will be my very own living room:
I. AM. DYING.
I have so many plans for the new place and so many no-plans. Does that make sense? I know exactly what I want it to feel like, but very few actual things picked out. One thing I will say is that it will be nothing like our current apartment – so full of color and quirkiness – this place will be light and airy in muted tones with very little on the walls. I want it to feel uncluttered and calm. And thoughtful.
Please join me in a collective finger-crossing and hope that everything goes smoothly today. Because nobody told me you should schedule closing one week out from moving day in case anything goes wrong.
We’re moving on Saturday.
P.S. The Brooklyn trunk show has been extended through this weekend! Be sure to schedule an appointment to see the lovelies in person – I can promise you they are even prettier in person. www.vekabridal.com
UPDATE: We’re officially homeowners!!
