    Yesterday was a challenge for me, and at the end of the day the pedometer said I'd done 2503 steps. That's probably a record for me.

    It's a long and boring story but yesterday was the day when I had to wind up the housing recertification papers. Before that appointment I thought I could do a load of laundry, using the credit/debit-card system.

    The system wasn't working well. I lost at least a dollar, maybe several dollars, trying to get it to work and wound up air drying all my laundry.

    A technician had to be called to fix the problem but the managers won't be here until next week some time, and so I'm the one who volunteered to let the technician in if/when that person shows up any time in the next business days.

    Last night this arrangement caused some problems when I thought I might have let someone unknown into the building accidentally, and I was scurrying around (with my rollator) trying to find this person. I never found him but I put in plenty of steps.

    I've spent today getting over that experience. The steps themselves actually probably weren't the tiring part. It was more the stress of too much going on in one day, I'm sure.

    Yikes, agate, that's not the way we want to increase our heartrate!

    I hope it was the right guy and it's all fixed. I'd like to think the odds of you letting in some random guy during the time you were tasked with letting IN some guy at all should be extremely low. Then again, how funny that we've just finished a conversation about the merits/risks of using debit or credit, and you run into a problem using debit!

    I'll let you count all those steps for me too since I've been resting!

    I never found out who it was but since nobody had a breakin or an attack, I'm assuming he was some guy who misread the sign and was entering the building as somebody's guest.

    I'm still on duty until the repair guy shows up. If he doesn't appear tomorrow, I'm guessing he won't be here till Tuesday, and by then at least one of the two managers will be back.

    Cool

    I paid all my bills, then went to the ATM and got cash to buy groceries, all on my debit card. I don't have or want a credit card. Too easy to get in debt.

    You've done all that today?

    That is so impressive even allowing for the time difference. I haven't had breakfast yet and am still thinking about ironing. I'm a long way from actually doing anything.

    Pedometer readings for August, based on 27 days: 1,401 steps taken on average

    About like July (1434) and better than June (1238).

    You are doing great Agate. You are hanging in there and holding your own. Just keep doing that.
