Bumps in the Road?

Before I begin today's entry, I would like to thank all who prayed for me, for healing.  When I awoke this morning, I felt a wee bit of relief, but by the time I got walking around my apartment, I knew that the pain was still with me.  Your continued prayer would be appreciated.  Thank you.  May God bless you.

Today has been one of those weird days, again.  I sometimes feel like I have nothing but weird days, lately!

For starters, I called the elevator to leave my apartment building, so I could go exercise.  I waited, and waited, and waited.  After much time, the elevator finally appeared.  It was sort of like taking a milk train, for it stopped on almost every floor.

I heard it was because one of our three (3) elevators was being used to transport some new kitchen cabinets and was therefore out of service.  Hmmm...okay. 

Exercising wasn't easy for me, again today.  Still, I managed to do it.  However, much like yesterday, I did have trouble walking this afternoon.  I sure wish this pain would go away, and come back again...never!

Upon returning to my building, I found a line-up for the elevators, once again.  This time, I found out that two (2) elevators were out of service.  The first (1st) one was out of service for the same reason as when I left home.  The second (2nd) one out of service was because it was actually being serviced.  So, this left only one (1) elevator for about 300 units.

Phew!  No wonder we were like sardines in there, today!  I felt badly for those around me, for when I entered the elevator, I was still soaking wet with sweat from working out.  I warned people to not get too close, for I needed a shower.  Some laughed.  Others didn't.  lol  Oops... sorry, I suppose I shouldn't have laughed! 

Arriving in my apartment, I decided that since I really don't like using air-conditioning unless it is absolutely necessary, that I would not turn it on.  Instead, I opened my window and sliding door.  Because of this, I decided to not take my shower immediately, but to wait until just before our pool meeting was scheduled.

My idea was to take my laundry downstairs with me and place it in the washers, while I attended the pool meeting.  Then, I could slip down the hall to the laundry room and change my laundry over to the dryers.  It would save much time, so I thought it was a good idea.

Normally, it would have been a good idea.  The only problem was that we had an emergency situation happen.  Apparently, a water main broke across the street.  The result was, that we had no water.

This meant no shower, no laundry, no nothing.  Yikes!

Well, I attended the pool meeting, making sure I didn't sit near anyone else!  Of course, I am hoping the laundry room will be open early tomorrow morning, so I can use it at 7:00 a.m.

Such is life.  It's always filled with kinks in the road, these days.  At least these road bumps were small ones!

Until next time...
