Once Poly got up so did I. I started being productive right away. I kept starting things and not finishing them. I felt like I was trying to finish many things on my to-do list and be super productive. It was a good feeling. I feel like every other day I don't feel like accomplishing anything and on the opposite days I want to be productive. I haven't figured it out yet. The stairs are closed again so I can't take my quick trips down to storage or to the car. I also have 2 bags of garbage to go down the trash chute but that is blocked off since it is right near the stairs.
I did many things on my to do list at my computer and cleaned off my desk. Finally it was lunch time and I got to eat at the table. I snacked at the table too. I did have to get up so the remote could work for each commercial. I put laundry in. I had on The Talk and was able to be productive without even realizing it. The good part about this apartment is also the bad part; if you are in one room you can't hear anything from the other room. This is good because TV or music in another room doesn't impact you but it is bad because you can't even shout to talk to someone in the other room. It's nice if I'm unpacking in the living room because I can watch TV and it can go quickly but then when I'm anywhere else in the place, I can't hear the TV.
I didn't start cooking again until Dave got home. When he got home, Poly didn't even come out of hiding. Once he got home, I started cooking again and this time the smoke detector did not go off. Dave snacked while I was cooking. Apparently he was starving and can't wait an additional 15 minutes!
The storage place closes daily at 9pm. We got there at 20 til. At 5 til we still had a million things in the hall outside our unit. At 8:57 someone came on the loudspeaker telling us we had 3 minutes until it closed. We actually didn't leave until 9:15. I feel like we still need to go back and reorganize again. Having 8 dining room chairs in there is a little awkward.
