Good news for the cooler. He said that it only needs a $50 replacement valve and it should be fine. Total bill today was $105. Not bad but not what I wanted to hear. I was hoping that he would get the furnace going and then I would buy a home warranty and if the furnace quit then the warranty would pay for it. Oh well. I knew it was a long shot.
Luckily I own 4 space heaters and am accustomed to using them. The listing agent said that he has a verbal agreement from the other 2 banks to make the closing date February 15th. After that I want to get someone to cut down the 2 chinaberry trees before I move in with the dogs since chinaberrys are toxic. By the time I actually move in, there will only be a few more weeks of winter here in AZ. I don't think I will have a problem staying warm. There is also a fireplace although I need to have a chimney sweep come out and clean the chimney. I wonder if that branch that fell in the backyard is dry enough to burn. With all of this tree chopping I have planned I will have plenty of firewood for next year that's for sure.
