Things are quite good. Despite everything, really. Plumbers are hopefully going to start to rebuild my bathroom after a rusty pipe burst in our building between our apartments in November. It’s all settled who is going to pay for what now. It took it’s time getting that into place. Then I discovered bed bugs in my apartment after the painters had finished in December. The painters used huge wool blankets to cover my furniture while they painted my ceiling and those blankets had been a lot of places and were probably chock full of bed bugs. Why the hell do they not use plastic? I had an exterminator company come in and spray three times and then another company lacquered my flat with longterm effective poison. I had to throw my bed and sofa out. No, the insurance does not cover it. Hopefully the bastard bugs are gone for good. On top of that, my camera bag fell down last weekend and now two of my favorite lenses are not working properly. I’ll have to get them fixed. Karma has been biting my behind, but things are looking up now. They are.
