Blogtober Challenge – Day 23 – No Elevator

This post was actually going to be about today’s trip to a theme park, BUT I came home to some bad news and sore legs.

No Elevator

When I stepped off the coach bus in front of Harmony Mall to return home, I received a message from my Rian saying that I should expect a horrible surprise when I get home. Of course I called him, and begged him to tell me, because he intrigued me with his choice of words. At first he was hesitant, but then he broke the news.

“Darling, the elevator is broken. I think it’s undergoing maintenance.”


Tyra,why is this a huge deal that you had to write about it?

I know you guys are probably wondering this.

The first reason is that we live on the 15th floor. Imagine having gone to a theme park for most of the day, walking around, going on different rides with different speeds, and then having to walk up 15 flights of stairs at the end of the day.

The second reason is that this elevator will be under maintenance from today until the 27th of October!!!

That is 4 days that we all in this entire building have to walk up and down the stairs. Thankfully I have tomorrow off, so I can stay home, but Rian works every day.

I know I shouldn’t complain that much since there are actually several people who live on the 18th floor, but still 15 floors is quite a lot!

As you all know, I’ve been quite exhausted lately. Today at the theme park was a great stress reliever, but China wouldn’t be China if something like this didn’t happen out of nowhere. That elevator was completely fine when I left this morning!

Looking forward to doing some writing tomorrow, since I definitely have no plans to leave this house!
