First-time home buyer's pre-closing freak out

We're buying a condo!!! Aaaaahhh!!! Down payment!!! Aaaaahhh!!! Home inspector fee!!! Aaaaahhh!!! "Possible washer/dryer hookup in unit" ridiculously implausible!!! Aaaaahhh!!! Unknown quantity of little-old-lady downstairs neighbor!!! Aaaaahhh!!! Boxes everywhere!!! Aaaaahhh!!! Still much packing to do!!! Aaaaahhh!!! Also much heavy lifting up flights of stairs soon to come!!! Aaaaahhh!!! Unbelievably high closing costs!!! Aaaaahhh!!!

You may think I'm writing all of this to be funny. Nope. I'm seriously about to stroke out here.

S'alright. It's only natural, or so I'm told. I was also told to expect a bajillion things to go wrong and to feel buyer's remorse. Well, we had the stuff going wrong, but I still don't feel the buyer's remorse. Even with the satanic washing machine and squirrel infestation.

Never fear! It will all be over soon and then you can laugh like me! Hahaha! What fun that horrific freakout was, what fun indeed!

Also, drink. No, really, drink.
