The Divine Ms. P: I call this my Kitty Cocooning in Her Condo pose.
Today the goal around here is to stay warm.
Let me backtrack a bit. Ever since we moved into this apartment 1 1/2 years ago, we've had heating issues, as in the heater would stop working (even after several visits from the super and the electrician.)
The last few days it's been unusually warm in here, too hot actually, and then the newest plot twist happened in our little soap.
On New Year's Day it smelled weird in here and the smoke detector kept going off even though Mom and Dad kept opening all the windows. The super came to our place several times and the last time he came our little castle was filled with smoke. Dad stayed with us to talk to the super, but Mom had to leave because her asthma was sneaking up and was ready to attack.
The heating system in our place has been shut off and the temporary little heater the super loaned us wasn't working during the night. Mom woke up with one of her "sore throat specials," but fortunately, Dad got the little heater to work this morning before he left for work.
It's finally starting to warm up in here and we're hoping by early next week this will all be a memory.
