Yesterday I worked out to my Denise Austin tape, took out the trash and then decided to do more exercise in my building. There are six floors to my apartment, and I ran up all the stairs to the top. Then I either jogged or walked down the hallways of each floor until I got to mine. But that running up six flights…that took a bit out of me. By the time I got to the sixth floor, I had to catch my breath. But I did that as I walked down the hallways. Nothing like hearing a heavy breather walk past your apartment to remind you to stay indoors.
When I was done I took a shower, played on Facebook a little too much and then went to my room and decided to watch “Little Miss Sunshine” on my new gadget. I ordered a personal DVD player awhile back, my mom helped me pay for it for my birthday. It’s very cool, it plays CDs, MP3s AND DVDs – it has a little TV screen. Plays beautifully. So I plopped down on my bed and watched the movie until I was too tired to care what was going on and went to bed. It was so much easier to sleep last night.
Remember when I told you that my apartment was very hot during those hot spells? Well I wasn’t the only one feeling it in the apartment. I heard several people complain. Then on Monday night after I got home from choir, there were signs posted by some fed-up tenants that read, “Enough heat!!” or “Too hot!!” Stuff like that. I had some groceries, so I used the elevator and there was a sign in there saying, “Turn down the heat!” Someone else wrote “Hell yeah!” I wanted to join the cause, so I dug out a pen from my purse and added, “Amen!”
Yesterday evening the signs disappeared and it was so much more comfortable in the building. I could turn off most of my fans. Granted, it was cooler outside yesterday, but still there was a big difference inside, too. Hope it stays that way.
