Feeling grateful for... landlord, who stopped over last night to remove my air conditioner (which was leaking cold air like a sieve into my house), and who surprised me and my upstairs neighbor by amending the terms of our leases so that he'll pay the first $300 of the heating bill every month, rather than $200. My neighbor and I split any balance of the bill after that. He said none of us expected the 50% estimated increase in fuel oil costs, so he's willing to take a hit on that. I thought that was very kind of him. My bank account is breathing a little easier in anticipation of the winter now.
