Busy Halloween

Last year’s Halloween wasn’t much.  It was just a few days after Hurricane Sandy, and even though my area hadn’t lost power the storm put a damper on trick-or-treating.  Only a handful came by, mostly older teens.  Today, however, it was a completely different story.  A few showers earlier in the day cleared up by the afternoon and it was notably warmer than usual.  From the time I got home from work around 4:30 until the last stragglers came by around nine, there were 29 trick-or-treaters.  That’s probably a record, though I can’t be certain.  Anyway, it meant that there was no leftover candy to tempt me.

Thursday’s work was pretty easy, though each time I thought I was done something new cropped up.  Nothing to complain about.  One thing that is a bit more bothersome involves the extra work installing the XBox One displays.  I had planned to get a start on Friday, but after looking over the instruction sheets I’m concerned that it may be a bit beyond my technical skills.  I’d probably manage it okay if I had someone there to show me, and to step in if necessary if I ran into trouble, but that won’t be the case.  I’ll be on my own in each store with no one to help.  What I figured was the best approach is wait until next week, when there should be someone available to provide telephone assistance. Not as good as having help right there in the store, but better than nothing.  Chances are good that once I complete the first installation I’ll be fine with the next ones.

I went to the gym on Thursday and did my medicine ball routine, 6 x 10 with the 20-pound ball.  To my considerable disappointment, however, the rowing machine that I’d used earlier in the week was out of service.  Or sort of out of service – the rowing part of it still works, but not the screen that shows time/distance/effort.  I suppose I could still do a timed row, but I prefer being able to track distance and effort.  I’m hoping that it will be fixed soon.  Unique Fitness does seem to do a pretty good job of repairing equipment.
