Day 6 of no A/C in triple digit heat is a bit more bearable because, before management took off for a three-day weekend, they had the guys bring in another portable A/C.
In addition to a portable in the front room …
There is a portable in the back room …
And though the two combined don’t provide the comfort of central A/C, there’s enough cooling of the unit to where I didn’t experience dizzy spells today.
Also, before heading off for a three-day weekend, management distributed this month’s activity calendar.
There was a breakfast this morning.
I’ve not been hanging with the folks since the 24th, but only because I empath and being around so many people, soaking up so many different energies, so many levels of consciousness for three events in a row had totally exhausted me. I needed time alone to recharge and, other than no A/C, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed keeping to myself. Not sure I was ready for reentry, I passed on the breakfast.
Also on the calendar is an End of Summer BBQ on Monday, Labor Day. My first thought was …. Is it? … Is it the end of Summer? …. It’s been Summer since January … Will Winter ever come?
The thing about retreating into myself, it being so quiet and peaceful, is that it’s hard to come back out. So I don’t know.
I can’t eat the burgers, hot dogs, ribs and desserts the calendar indicates will be provided; but then again, I can bring a veggie or fruit tray and eat what I bring, so we’ll see.
I’ll decide when I get up that morning.
Zumba is also on the calendar.
The first session is scheduled for Tuesday, September 5, 1:00.
I used to be big into Zumba. Took classes, worked out with the Beto Perez tapes – which I think I still have, stored away somewhere. That all kinda fell away after retiring and, living upstairs, I can’t be stomping around using the tapes, so I’m tempted to show up on Tuesday.
If I go through the effort of pushing myself to get out of myself, this just better not be another one of Activity Director’s fairytales … an event set up that does not materialize.
