Home for Christmas

Anyone have plans to be in a new home for Christmas?

ourhousePapers have been signed, payments made, deed transferred as of 11am today. So this is it. No turning back. We’re officially homeowners with mortgage payments to make for the next 30 years.

Our family has been blessed with one of the best Christmas gifts we could have — our first home. My husband and I have been married for more than 14 years, but our dream of owning a home was oh so hard to reach back when we lived in the Philippines where a 30% downpayment was required. So Robert Kiyosaki’s “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” was a way out for us, a justification of sorts. We couldn’t afford to buy a house, and even if we did, we couldn’t afford to quickly resell it, anyway.
