My realtor emailed me the HUD-1 settlement form that I'm going to be signing tomorrow. It gives all the dollar figures and such, so I actually know precisely what I'm getting tomorrow, precisely how big that check will be that I'll have to carry around until I'm able to deposit it. Yikes!
Of course, half that money is already earmarked for various things. Still, I'll have a nice chunk of change to play with, my monthly expenses will be quite a bit lower, and I'll have no debt.
So I'm in pretty darned good shape financially. And my work life is excellent. And I'm going to have a party on Friday. And I just bought lots of cheese today. Life is good.
