About paint fumes...maybe somebody else has also heard about this. Adding 1 tsp. of vanilla to a gallon of paint helps control the fumes that really bother some people.
After having a really negative experience with with my home being painted while I was there, I always vowed that I will move out of my home while it's being painted the next time. Haven't had to do that yet, but I've heard about the vanilla trick more than once, and I look forward to trying it.
