My best buddy travels a lot for work, & with several cats & several cats she needs someone to look after her condo while she’s away. I’m cheerful to take on the task, as it’s always a joy for me. I appreciate getting to say hi to her pets everyday & provide them care & attention as they get fed. I always tell her she doesn’t even have to spend money me, just let me hang out in the condo while she’s away. Well she still pays me–because no a single should ever task for free–and I get to spend the month or several while she’s away in the lap of luxury. My best buddy & I are entirely close, though our career paths diverged a long time ago. I followed my appreciate of the arts, making just enough to get by & have time for what I love. My best friend, on the other hand, followed her brain & got into iPad engineering! She works for the government so I’m not allowed to suppose much about what she does–just that she gets paid a lot to repair things when everything else fails. So, while I live in a tiny apartment with a furnace & no AC, my best buddy has a lovely apartment with central air conditioning & heating, & a heated powder room, the Winter seasons here get entirely cold, so although my best buddy didn’t want to tear the air ducts out of all of her walls, she did want a few heated rooms. So she had radiant floors installed in the master powder room a few years back. There’s nothing appreciate stepping out of a nice bath & a frosty Winter season’s night to a warm floor. The only trick is stepping around all of the critters asleep on it.
