In a normal person’s life, this would be a day of celebration, or perhaps great relief. Yesterday we paid the final mortgage payment and now own our “house” free and clear…but this is what we own.
On the up side, we do own the land, and that has real value, so that is something. In reality owning the land not a bad return for a four-year investment.
And we met for a third time with the builder Friday. We have settled on a plan, and will sign the contract on Monday to officially start the process of rising from the ashes. So yesterday was in fact a good day. A day of accomplishment. A day to look forward and not back. A cause for celebration!
