Monday negotiations

After the usual morning stuff, email from Realtor that the people the other realtor showed the house to have made a cash bid, but for $15k under the asking price, and with some conditions, but no mention of whether or not they want the piano.

One of the conditions was me paying for a warranty on the air conditioner. I couldn't find the repair receipt, but the company which did the work emailed it to me, and it clearly shows the unit has a 10-year warranty with many years yet to run.

Realtor will ask about the piano, suggest a $5k higher list price, and no extra warranty. I also asked her to check the box that says they do not get any of my internet equipment.

Biggest gotcha is escrow won't close till March 4. That's a month longer than I was hoping for. But that does give me time to plan. And arrange for a house to move to in Vegas.

I found the Cuisinart blades - they are in a container shoved in with the mason jars in the laundry room cabinet. I was afraid they had been in a basket the junk haulers took out of the shed.

Small salad for lunch, popcorn as I watched the rerun of the Seahawks game. There is still part of the LendingTree Bowl to watch.

Finished the last tetrazzini for dinner, added some pulled chicken from KFC leftovers and a half a tub of sour cream + cream of {???} soup.

If the house sells, I need to eat what's in the freezers. Lots of American cheese. Shrimp. Frozen fruit mix. Sausages. I've been good about not buying a lot for the past 3 months.

Streamed in the afternoon and again an hour ago. Switched back to Streamlabs from StreamElements. There were burps. Still are.

Plans for tomorrow:
Check email for Realtor's negotiations results & forms
Print & sign & scan forms as needed
Between noon and 4 pm, window for plumbers due to make the two toilets safe for Democracy
Watch the #20 work as they landscape the south side
Go somewhere!
