Can I just say that I am sick of living in a hotel? It's not all bad. We can go back and forth from our apartment and get stuff or drop stuff off, but it's not the same.

Today I realized that all our towels, washclothes, and hotpads are with the restoration cleaners and won't be back for nearly 3 weeks. That means if we are back in our apartment before then we won't have those items. So I went to Big Lots and got 2 sets of 2 bath towels, 2 hand towels, 2 sets of 12 washclothes, 2 hotpads, and 2 sets of kitchen towels. Hopefully insurance will reimburse us. I got everything for cheap. I also got 4 new pillows because I refuse to sleep on the pillows that have smoky carcinogens all over them.

Bob and I went home today to get some stuff and we noticed that it still smelled very bad. I can't believe the apartment management/ownership won't clean the whole building, but all the evidence points to only having the 2nd floor cleaned. We are going to call our insurance company, tell them about Bob's pulmonary and breathing problems, and hope they will work on our behalf to get the rest of the building cleaned. In the meantime, I posted more photos to my Facebook and Flickr accounts. Check them out.

Tomorrow is work. The cleaners are coming at 8:30. Bob is going to meet them at the apartment. I have an interview after work and Bob has a sleep study at 7. I am glad that they are working on figuring out his breathing issues but going back to the apartment scares me until the whole building is clean because of his bathing issues.

Amy, I am just catching up. Thank goodness this wasn't much, much worse!

I hope the insurance/cleaning companies will step right up to make sure the quality of air is exactly as Bob needs it to be.

I'm glad you got your kitties all together and you really need to submit those photographs to the newspaper or some sort of public exhibit. They are very good.
