My biggest birthday wish

I've got the oven on with the door open in an attempt to warm things up in here. It's currently 63°, up from 62°.

It's my birthday today. I want to do some nice things for myself to celebrate, but I need for it to get a little warmer. Right now all I want to do is sit under this big blanket. I'm also designing a logo for a friend's company. I should make coffee. Or better yet, I should get one of the delicious lattes they make at the bakery next door. It's my birthday, after all.

My friend Rose is making dinner for me tonight, which is super nice of her. I was going to try to let this birthday slip by uncelebrated, but she wouldn't allow it. I'm glad.

I had planned to go to the Berliner Mieterverien today to get advice regarding my heating and hot water problems, but it's dark and rainng out and I just don't feel like sitting in a waiting room to talk to a lawyer. This looks like a job for Tomorrow.

It's five hours later and my heat and hot water have been finally restored!! My biggest birthday wish has been fullfilled.
