I can has a house!

I'm officially a homeowner. I had to sign my name and an entire phrase for Dr. Man about 5 x 10^6 times (I blatantly stole that from DrdrA). The phrase was because we went the power of attorney route for the closing because Dr. Man wasn't going to be able to make it. Legally I had to sign, legibly, "Dr. Man Lastname by Amanda Lastname, His Attorney-in-fact." This eventually got less and less legible the more things I had to sign.

However, the upshot is that I spent a lot of money, agreed to spend even more, and doubled our debt. However, we now have a house!
