As a general rule, I hate writing checks. Not that I write that many. Primarily, what I do write are for bills which might explain why I hate writing them. But a few hours ago, I took particular pleasure in writing one. This check was a true rarity and more than 20 years in coming. It represents something that I may never experience again.
This check is the final payment on This D*mn House!
It doesn't even represent one-fourth of what a full payment would be (not including escrow) making it all the sweeter. The thought of no longer having a mortgage payment seems completely surreal.
And so, it's official. I OWN THE MONEY PIT! Or, I soon will. Now, I just have to drop this in the mailbox.
I may skip all the way there ...
