Closing went off without a hitch today. My realtor called to tell me I'm officially out of the real estate ownership game.

Relieved, sad, happy, exhausted, flat broke, and done.

Think of the haters in your life as sandpaper; they’ll scratch you up time and time again but in the end you’re polished, smooth, and spotless..while they end up useless

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

I suppose I can throw out my paint chips, carpet samples, and fabric swatches now, right?
