I'm heading out to the gym soon, and I will also get a breakfast sandwich and pick up some groceries.

My kitchen ceiling started leaking yesterday. I wasted some time calling a plumber, who would not come unless he could also get access to the upper unit. (My upstairs neighbor does not seem to be home.) I finally got in touch with our condo board president, who advised me to enter a work order on the property manager's website. He also told me that this should not be an expense that I would have to cover. And that the PM can enter the upstairs unit in the case of an emergency, which this is. So today I am waiting to hear from them, while the ceiling continues to drip. (I have filled two buckets so far.) I will have them also look at the bowed-out area in my living room, in case that is related.

I'm caring for GS1 today, so we'll both have to hang out at here after I pick up him at his gym.

I also got a bill for the physical therapy - $240 -- which adds more challenge to what already feels like a challenging month. Of course it will come from savings, but that hurts, too.

I checked on the Social Security application, and it is still being processed.

At least I seem to feel better today, physically!

    I hope the leak doesn't get worse! And I'm glad that this won't be an expense you'll have to cover. I hope the PM comes soon!

    Glad you are feeling better today!

    Most definitely the property manager should be involved when a leak is coming from another unit into yours. I hope it's corrected swiftly!

    Yikes--that is a challenge. Hope it gets resolved soon. How do you like the Crawdads book? I'm thinking of including it in my Bestsellers class.

    I finished the Crawdads book last night. I think your students will like it. An underdog story, with some mystery thrown in and lots of beautiful prose about nature in the marsh.

    Sorry about the leak. Hopefully it will be taken care of.
