Stop & Chat: January 4th
The beginning of my day was spent surfing the web and catching up on blogs/YouTube. I had some leftover soup and began working on some blog posts. Then I took a nap because I was still feeling really tired. Michael was asleep from about six in the morning til right before two in the afternoon, when I woke him up. He was supposed to call the guy in charge of our household goods and had said that he didn't think he would sleep past noon, leaving plenty of time to call the office. Two began looming over my head and I thought maybe I should wake Michael up.
Michael got our stuff arranged for delivery tomorrow right around when he comes home from his shift. I don't know how he expects to maintain any semblance of proper social etiquette when he is ready to go to sleep and has to check each box and item off a list. I'll be there to help, but technically he has to be the main point of contact since he's the service member. I could do it since I'm his spouse but I lack a lot of the knowledge and general social skills Michael has to handle the situation.
Once the appointment was set up, Michael went to check our mail box and came back with my L3 wax I've been expecting. I got a lot more than I was expecting. I mean, I knew what was coming because there was a specific list of what you would be getting, but I didn't know how much I was getting. What fun!
Michael left after I opened my box to help a friend set up and buy some parts for his computer. I considered going, but I wasn't that interested in walking around the electronics market and I knew I had some cleaning that needed to be done. Also, this wax needed to be photographed :)
I got my picture taking out of the way first. Wax is messy when you take it out of its container. I ended up sweeping the area I'd taken pictures in because some pieces were too small to simply pick up. From there I swept the entire apartment, did dishes, got some laundry together, and did general declutter and unpacking work. Since Michael was no longer asleep or even in the house I could finally clean the master bedroom. Our plane bags were finally fully unpacked and clothes put away. I started moving electronics, body care, and other nick knacks to their own spot. I consolidated shopping bags and contents and threw away trash that had been piling up on tables. I cleared off a lot of tables. Our stuff really likes to spread itself out over every surface possible. Looking around the living room as I type this, I feel a lot less stressed about stuff being strewn about. Of course, tomorrow at this time I will be surrounded by boxes instead but I'll take what I can get. I'm hoping that this company will offer to unpack and take care of the packing materials for us like the last one did. I've decided that I like that idea especially since it'll save us a trip to find some large dumpster area for hundreds of broken down boxes.
Tomorrow before our stuff arrives I will have to move my laptop setup to the bedroom so it's out of the way. Besides that this house is as ready for our goods as it's going to get. Yay! Then I'll have my desktop computer again! I may have to try and get out with Michael tomorrow just so I don't go stir crazy here, assuming I don't get wrapped up in organizing and putting away all of our stuff.
Alright, time for me to lay down and watch some YouTube until I fall asleep. Here's hoping none of our things are severely damaged when they arrive!
Have you ever tried L3 Waxy Wonders?
