My wife and I signed the paperwork today to actually buy our first home. Holy shit; what a feeling. The loan's approved, the contract's signed, and now we just have to wait for them to finish building it so we can move in. No more apartments for us! In fact the apartment managers were visibly miffed that we actually invoked our "we're buying a house and you said you'd let us go!" clause in their lease ... apparently not too many people actually make use of that these days.
Sorry; this is probably a cruddy day log entry, but hey, I've never bought a house before.
