Mel and I were in the process of buying our house. I was reminded of it by Steph's posts about trying to buy a house. I don't envy her. Buying a house is way stressful. I love our house, and I hope we stay satisifed with it for a long time (like forever).
At the time we were buying our house, we lived next door to my grandmother. We had a disagreement, and she told me that my giraffe-necked, lesbian-bitch girlfriend was no longer allowed in her house. Needless to say, things were tense. Closing couldn't come soon enough. We slept on an air mattress in our house the first night we took possession. (And we stalked the sellers for several weeks prior to closing to make sure they got all their crap out of our house.) Good times.
