My life is a stereo, how loud does it go? What songs do I know?

Yup, we’re buying a house.

Got approved for a pretty decent looking mortgage, optimized for a fast return, thanks to some tips from our friends Mark and Elisabeth.
Got a real estate agent looking for places we might be interested in, in a price range we’ve calculated that we can afford, thanks to some tips from our friends Chad and Jen.
Got a down payment, thanks to my parents.
Got a place to stay for a few months until we can close a deal, thanks to an old friend.

It’s gonna be a fun couple months back in Ontario, living out of boxes, but at the end of it, we’ll have our very own house. I can talk for hours about how I really have no objections at all to renting, but I have to admit, I am a little bit excited to have our own place that I can tinker with. I’m thinking home automation, solar cells, remote speakers, and a gigabit home network…
