I totally agree about the mattress and bedding. It might cost a bit much at the time of purchase, but considering you use both things on a daily basis (sometimes more than once!), it's definitely worth the splurge.

Also, good pillows is something worth having as well. And by 'good' I don't mean uber expensive ones. I mean nice feather ones that you like. Sinking into those is definitely one of my favorite moments every night.

Orange, lime and lemon zest did the trick for us when we were being attacked by the little buggers from our kitchen door that leads out to the back. I just sprinkled the zest generously around the doorstep and they stopped coming in.

I've also heard turmeric does the trick, but I haven't tried that one yet.

Alameda is a great little town. There are tons of little restaurants and shops all over as well as a Safeway, Nob Hill and Trader Joe's.

Granted, it's a bit of a pain to get to and from the island since you have to cross a bridge or go through a tunnel, but if you're working from home, it shouldn't be too much of a problem.

There's a ferry terminal at the north end of the island that goes into San Francisco, so that's always an option as well. Fruitvale BART is within biking distance as well.
