Memo to Self --- Days 13/8 & 9

Walks: Hood Shopping
Distances: 3.5, 5.5 miles

More often than she cares to admit Ciwt finds herself thinking about her old home.  So quaint, so cozy, poor Ciwt.

Then she gets a delivery at her new home for 1.8 years like the one leaning against her wall above.  It is 10' tall and weighs 43 pounds.  The doorman helped her put it into the elevator, but when she reached her floor she couldn't budge it.  Noticing the elevator hadn't returned, the doorman came up to her floor and took the cumbersome bundle (it's a carpet) into her place. The whole process took no longer than 10 minutes.

When he had left (with a voluntary thank you tip from relieved Ciwt), she remembered other things about her old place.  Specifically the 73 stairs from the sidewalk to her unit.  If this delivery had been made there, it is questionable the driver would have even brought it to the downstairs front door.  If he had, she would have had to call a service like Lugg to carry it up the stairs. Since today is a holiday, they might be closed so the bundle would be outside overnight.  And then there is the matter of the neighborhood crimes around here these days......

Memo to self: No more Poooor Ciwt.  Life without 73 stairs and with the added luxuries of a doorman and elevator is wonderfully liveable.
