.: Donna Villa :.
Say hello to the Donna villa:
If you squint, you might be able to see my black-cloaked figure standing by the door.
Settlement wasn't nearly as daunting as I imagined. Charles was right when he said it would take about an hour. The very first document I signed said: Buyer is Donna S, an unmarried woman. I laughed when I read it and fought the urge to jump up and down and dance around. After about 1000 pages all requiring a signature, I shook hands with my realtor, the listing agent, Diane the seller, my mortgage broker, and the lady from the title company. Lisa and I got into her car and drove right over to our new home. MY HOME! MINE! We went inside and spent the afternoon walking around, standing, and sitting in every little room. It felt so right. I am happy. Very very happy.
Tomorrow, I clean and paint.Posted by donna at January 29, 2004 05:59 PM | TrackBack
Congratulations Donna!!! Buying our house was one of the best moments of my life. I hope you enjoy your new home.

Excellent! It seems like you did better than my husband, who almost fainted during our settlement. Yeesh!Posted by: mac at January 31, 2004 05:35 PM
I thought you were just getting a condo. That's a HOUSE! A big one, too. Congratulations! I'm very happy for you.Posted by: Dawn Eden at January 31, 2004 01:19 AM

Yippee! Enjoy the Donnaville for all it's worth, and if you decide to echo Daffy Duck's exclamation, "MINE MINE MINE" it will be perfectly alright!Posted by: Larry at January 30, 2004 12:25 PM
WOOOOOOOO-HOOOOOOOOOOO! Congratulations, Donna! The house looks great from here!
Best wishes on your new toy!Posted by: David at January 29, 2004 11:50 PM
Hmmm. "An unmarried woman"?
Here, the legalese reads "A single person". Must be something in the state law up there.
And the day after that, you clean. :)
But what the heck. At least now you have a reason to want to.
