Just Batching It . . .

The high bidder on our house emailed over a copy of the contract all filled in and ready to sign.

Except that Jan’s name is not on it, and needs to be, since her name is on the deed as well as mine.

The contract is the standard Texas Real Estate Commission version so there shouldn’t be any hanky-panky with it.  But just to be sure I downloaded a sample copy from the TREC website and compared the two, and found no discrepancies.

But there are still some parts that I don’t quite understand, so I’m going to check with a real estate lawyer just to be sure.

We’ve been needing rain and today we got it in spades. Over 3.5 inches here at the coach, and more officially in the area. And the lightning/thunder was pretty serious also.

About noon it started to come in buckets, large buckets. And the thunder was jarring the coach, so much so that it apparently jarred the DirecTV satellite out of alignment also.

I thought that when DirecTV went out, it was because it was raining so hard. But it was still offline when I got back home later in the evening and it wasn’t raining. So I set the dish to realign and got the signal back.

Jan and I headed out about 12:45, in the rain, of course. with our first stop at the Webster Rudy’s BBQ. Not for BBQ, but for a big jar of their coarse ground pepper.

We use a lot of it and theirs is really good.

Our next stop was our favorite East Star Chinese Buffet for lunch, great as usual. Then while Jan was getting her hair cut at the local SuperCuts, I stopped by my client’s to finalize things on the website for our August sale.

Next we headed over to the house to go through some boxes, and also wait for Brandi, Lowell, and Landon to meet us at King Food for dinner about 5:30. They were coming down to pick Jan up and take her back up to Katy to Landon sit. He’s decided that he doesn’t like his Day Camp so Jan’s going to stay with him the rest of this week and all of next week, until school starts on August 15th. I’ll pick up her this Friday, and then Brandi, et. all, will pick her back up on Sunday.

But until then, it’s just me and Karma, batching it.
