Thank you MyFico people! I am a home owner...

I received the key to my home on Thursday (and yes I burned rubber across town to get it). My realtor called around 4pm, letting me know everything funded and the house was mine...I was in bed, trying to catch up on some sleep. (Could you go back to sleep after that call?) I had until 5pm to get my key.

Since Thursday, I have cleaned the house (short sale), bought a fridge, scheduled the painters and carpet cleaners for this week... and then moving all our stuff in. I can't wait to kiss this apartment goodbye, but moving may end up being more stressful than the ride I was on buying the house...

I wouldn't of been able to do this without all of you guys here at MyFico with your tips, suggestions, experiences, and encouragement.

By the way... I also applied and was approved for Walmart and Home Depot credit cards... I'm pretty excited!
