  • Mood:
Yesterday was mostly spent getting the last negotiations done for what the owner has to do to the house in order for us to buy it.

They are going to put money for mitigating the radon levels in escrow so that if the long-term (90 day) test is still above the EPA standards, they'll be paying for the mitigation system. Hoorah! We'll have to pay for the new paint, but so that is. We still have the house, and they did throw extra money in for other things, so we're not too badly off, all in all.

We spent a lot of the day going to the bank and either getting or sending faxes. Decided, in the morning, to make apple oat bran muffins instead of getting huge cheese and sausage croissants as I wanted to save the exuberance for after everything was settled and we'll have time tomorrow. But, yay! Another major milestone done!!

I am down about work stuff. Some of it is because I am in the wrong about something, and I hate doing that. I just have to stop defending it, and apologize and I'll likely feel better.

I slept badly last night because of it.

Jet was great, though. When I'd spent far too much time upstairs, according to him, he stood at the bottom of the stairs and yelled, "Maaaaaamaaaa! You come down!! You get down here!"

Monk was really good. I really enjoyed it with John and Jet.

Jet ate one of the brandied cherries, with a lot of help and he spilled most of the liquor all over himself, the counter, the floor, and his clothing. Hee. He didn't like it that much anyway, but he was so intrigued by the cherry and the pit that he gave me the chocolate shell, told me he didn't want it, and took the shrivelled up cherry with pit, instead. Hee. He nibbled that happily.
