Please Explain the Lingo lol...

So I got an emai from my l.o. stating I have final approval, along with a mortgage commitment letter, and they instructed my realtor to set up closing for Tuesday.
As a first time homebuyer, my brain is completely scrambled, even still, FRIED, from the whole process. I think this is what I have seen referred to here as "clear to close", but just wanted to see if I could get some help decoding the lingo and what happens from here.
Thanks all!

Congrats.  =)  Be sure to ask questions and peruse everything at closing.  You will be signing a lot, and though I hear it's easy to just sign and move on you'll want to take the time to understand everything.

+1, it took about an hour to close on our mortgage because I had a few questions and then after the docs were signed, I had to wait for the loan to be funded.
