Almost done (only have the bathroom left now) but I am a quivering, exhausted mess.

I was afraid if I did all the other little things I noticed needed doing, I would never finish. I just noted them mentally and will write them done as projects to be done later.

So much cat hair, so little time!

In NYC, M&M Pest Control does free insect ID:

They are bedbug specialists, and athough you may think a pest control company might make you want to believe you have bedbugs, according to their Google reviews they have dissuaded a few people who thought they had bedbugs but actually didn't.

My heart skips a beat whenever I see these "distressed" pictures... I don't care what anyone says, I love them, even though I know that the mold, dust, paint chips and splinters are not good to live with.

I had to comment because I too lived in Manhattan as the only girl with three brothers in an apartment that looked very similar to the layout you now have! Since that's how I lived in my formative years, that's exactly the size that seems perfect to me. Plus most of my friends lived in similar sized apartments.

At first I roomed with my youngest brother but then the boys all went together and I had my own room. It's true that we eventually moved to the "country" because of my brothers (one of them now lives in Colorado), but I came back to the city as soon as I could.

I once hid behind the couch to see how long it would take for anyone to notice I was missing - I was there from lunchtime until dinner before they noticed - and I post that incident just to show that we were not on top of each other, and a person could in fact get "lost."

Thanks for the tip. I can't get through the winter without my l'occitane salt scrub, but it's a bit pricey.

I will definitely give this a try.
