Contract


Bee and I bought our real estate agent dinner after work tonight and signed the contract over soft shell crabs and lobsters.

It felt as though we were celebrating a victory, even though we paid much more for the house than we initially had to. How odd!

And we feel so grateful towards the agent, which most people think we shouldn't because at the end of the day, he's getting a big fat commission out of it.

Some friends are even skeptical about the genuineness of his intention.

But Bee and I believe that happy people are people who look at the good things in people and the brighter side of things instead of focusing on the bad.

As naive as that might have sounded, we want to be one of those happy people.

And God, I sure hope that we're making the right decision! Because Bee really loves the house, and I'm starting to fall in love too.

So we took a deep breath, signed on the dotted line, and settlement is in 68 days!

Congratulations on the new home! I remember when I signed on the dotted line for my home. Simultaneously one of the most nervous and happy moments of my life!

Kaoru: Thanks, darl! You're right, it was indeed "simultaneously one of the most nervous and happy moments"! Couldn't have said it better myself. :)
