I am happy to announce that the wife and I have purchased our first house. It was kind of like announcing we are pregnant or not. At first, we could only tell a few people, and then once we finally closed on the house, we could announce it to everyone.
With the closing happening yesterday, I can't believe that I actually own a house. I really never thought I would own one. I always loved renting, and never bought into the idea of how owning a house is a good investment. But things just happened so quickly that it was a great deal, so now the wife and I are homeowners and have all that pressure on us that comes with owning a home.
But none of that talk for right now. Give me a week to enjoy this. Right now, the wife, the kid, the dog, and I are going to be moving to the suburbs and out of NYC.
This is the American dream right?
