I just re-read an old post of mine that never made it out of draft form. It was dated 4/30/08, and the main gist was my excitement about being preapproved for the mortgage for our house. The funny part was when I said, "there may still be some bumps along the road."
I know I was just trying not to jinx anything, but now in retrospect that comment is hilarious.
Little did we know: We had a TWO MONTH LONG road full of bumps and pot-holes in store for us!
That's right, we didn't actually sign the dotted line and purchase the house until mid-June.
