I’ve put in my time and paid good money to live the way I do. I want for nothing. Not trying to brag here, just truth. The career I have experienced has been fraught with sacrifice. So, I if I want to own a certain painting, I most certainly will. I get my way now. My loft in the city is a designers dream. I have a walk in closet which contains its own shoe closet. I get the best but I also take care of it. I have two other women as assistants. And, it looks as though I may have to fire one of them. Having just returned from 6 weeks abroad, I came home to my loft to an 87 degree slap in the face. The HVAC had been turned off. I was hoping against hope it had not been off long. The two assistants take their 2 week vacations during my travels. But, someone is always there to check on my precious possessions. Once I brought up the lights, I knew it was bad news. The sight of mildew hit me just as its pungent smell touched my nose. The HVAC system must stay on to maintain the correct humidity levels. This is a must. Now, I am seeing hints of mildew on far too many things. If the HVAC is not left on, I could very well be looking at thousands and thousand of dollars in damage to artwork alone. My first call will be to my assistants asking them to join me at my home. The next call will be to a deep cleaning crew to save what they can. But, first perhaps I’ll turn on the air conditioning. I want to be sure the HVAC is on when the ladies get here.
