Today is the day that escrow closes

Still not sure if I should capitalize escrow or not. Any real estate/grammar smarties out there?
Escrow! She closes! Today! If all goes according to plan, we will have the house Sunday sometime. (The little old lady is flying out to Texas!) And there is *joy of joys* a dumpster there till Tuesday. Why am I so overjoyed about that? For those of you who haven't seen the photos on Flickr already, let me illustrate thusly:

WHAMMO! There's a kitchen in there, somewhere.

KA-POW! Living room! (I wish I could say it was less cluttered before they started packing...)

SHAZAM! Entry hall.

Of course, there are gems hidden in these piles like crazy. Such as:

this marvelous photo. And let's not forget:

this horrifying, LIFE SIZE German Shepard head candle. With glowing yellow eyes. Yeah, I don't think I'll ever be able to forget that one.
The plan is that ALL of this stuff will be removed by her. But seeing how I have not even scratched the tip of the iceberg here, I have a feeling there will be some very fun finds in the near future. (Honestly, I rather hope there are!)

OMG, that candle is HILARIOUS. I love seeing stuff like that and trying to conjure up in my head what these people's personalities are like out in the "real world".

I've enjoyed reading your blog - you have a great sense of humor!
