I am SO pleased that you have cool air circulating at last!! And the fact that your pussy cats are lined up in front of it says a lot about how hot it has been in your apartment!!! It reminds me of our chickens lined up in front of the fan on the hot days in SC! The ones who were higher in the pecking order got to hang out at the front and get the full force of the air (and this was a pretty large semi- commercial fan that put out some volume!) I hope that the expenses just quit for a while there! What a bummer about those pot holes - they can be really nasty when they jump out like that! You could put some arnica gel on your back and even an Epsom salts 'poultice' or magnesium gel ... hopefully it is a non-issue in no time at all!
I can really relate to not even being tempted by grains - I have not touched them since I went off them in Feb 2012. A couple times there has been a little in a sauce at a restaurant and even that tiny amount is enough to establish me on the porcelain throne for hours and hours. Not even close to tempting!
