Wanted: Heat!

My heat sort of worked for a few days, then it was unseasonably warm for a couple of weeks, and now it's November for real and my heat isn't working at all. The inn's owner says he's coming to work on it with his brother -- next Monday. WTF. It's between 30 and 42 degrees here for the rest of the week! Why couldn't they get on this LAST WEEK like they told me they would?! Nights are OK, because I have an electric blanket to heat my bed and keep me warm. Mornings, on the other hand, are terrible. It's freezing, and getting out of bed (not to mention getting dressed) is extremely difficult and painful.

This is the crappy thing about living rent-free. I can complain every single day, but I have no power in this situation at all. I'm pretty much at their mercy, which sucks. If things get really bad, I can crash in one of the vacant rooms at the inn. This is free, but I do need to leave the housekeepers a tip for cleaning the room, which can get expensive if it's something I have to do constantly. We'll see what Monday brings.
