There are up cycyles and down cycyles and I'm in a down cycyle right now. I'm still sick and yesterday I really didn't feel like getting dressed. I planned on just laying around all day but it was not to be. The fire alarm went off and I had to hurry to get dressed. Apparently the sprinkler system on the second floor broke and was flooding the place. 2 out 3 of the elevator shafts got flooded too. I'm on the 7th floor and by the time I got dressed, I heard that all was clear and not to worry anymore. So I got undressed again and back to lying down.
If I knew before I came here this year that they would be renovating the floor I'm on, I would not have come. Every morning for almost a month now there is hammering and sawing early in the morning. After not sleeping good at night, it's hard to not be annoyed at being waken up early everyday. Then by 10 AM, they go away and don't come back until night time. Someone must be doing this on the side of their regular job so it's all before and after hours.
They are changing the pipes, painting and putting in new carpets. My unit will be done when we leave so next year we'll come back to all new stuff. BUT that's next year, meanwhile we have to live with this.
The sprinkler flooding caused the concrete to buckle in the front of the building and now they are jackhammering it to replace it. Makes it hard when you bring home groceries, plus everyone having to use just the one elevator is such a pain, but thankfully there is an elevator as 7 floors is too much for us to carry up stuff.
I think I'm just more cranky because I don't feel well and everything gets on my nerves. I'm tired of being sick!! So now it's back to the couch but on the bright side, I lost 12 lbs from this, ;)
