Encasements for box spring and mattress: $190Encasements for six pillows: $102 Inspection from exterminator for bedbugs: $327 Peace of mind: Priceless

We do not have bedbugs!!! Yay! That's one problem solved. Now I should figure out what gave me itchy bumps all over my wrists. Oh, and why my apartment smells like sewage twice a day. And how to get the workmen who installed a phone line in the building stairwell a month ago to come back and fix the hole they punched through my kitchen wall behind the refrigerator.

But one thing at a time. I'm just relieved that we don't have bedbugs and that I am fortunate enough to be able to spend money to find that out for certain. Not everyone can say the same thing, and I feel for them.
