The maintenance guy is here this afternoon – cut a section out of the sheetrock to try to determine if the leak is coming from upstairs or from an outside source. He left for a few minutes and I went into the bathroom – the smell of moldy rotten wood nearly knocked me over. I hope he has a fix for that because I’m afraid to breathe it, especially when I’m hopeful of having surgery soon. All I need now is a lung problem.
I know the rest of the country is having a cold spell also, but at 45F in the middle of the day I am freezing! Even at 25 or so during the night I’m ok most of the night because of my down comforter. I just ordered a down featherbed and should be getting it within a few days. I originally wanted to get one for the truck camper, but I think I will use it on my bed here and just move it over to the TC when I need to. It will make the bed considerably warmer, as well as make the TC mattress softer and more comfortable to me.
Today is my youngest sister’s birthday, and her oldest daughter Katy, came home from NY over the weekend to be here; that was the day my granddaughter left for college, but I managed to get a picture of the two of them. They are both sweet as can be and I love being around them. We will have birthday cake at Amy’s this evening, and I can’t wait to see another of Donald’s creations.
According to maintenance, there is no water coming in from the outside. They tried to arouse Guitar Boy upstairs to enter his apartment and run the water in the bathroom to see if it is coming downstairs, but he must be sleeping something off. They said if he doesn’t answer in a couple of hours they will enter the apartment. Meanwhile, they will bring a blower try to dry some of it out, although I’m not sure if that will alleviate the odor or the mold. For me, 2010 was not a good year health-wise, and 2011 doesn’t look good so far. I may have to do something like Tioga George, wave goodbye to the doctors and medicines, and take off for Mexico!
I just spilled cookie crumbs all over the kitchen floor. Lady was there in a flash, and cleaned that floor so well I won’t have to mop for a week! She’s versatile, I’ll have to say that for her. She does as good a job on cookie crumbs as she does on bacon grease!
