But it has felt like even longer.
We are still trying to get settled into our home and that seems to be a never ending process. Our goal now is to be done by Thanksgiving. That is pretty much sink or swim time since we are having family over for Thanksgiving dinner.
So I am living in a house full of boxes while my partner goes all OCD and tries to clean every little last speck of dirt from the place before I can unpack anything anywhere. Do I think a little bit of dirt is going to hurt anyone? Not at all. What is frustrating for me, is that I have to wait on her to clean it. She won’t allow me to clean it, I am not as OCD about it as her. So I am moving on her schedule, and when your partner works 12 hours a day and seems to always be tired, well that makes it a very slow moving schedule.
I did however finally setup our tv, so we are back to the big screen rather than the tiny little 19 inch tv that we were previously using. I have unpacked almost all of our DVDs, and have in the process decided we need larger shelves to house said DVDs, especially since Black Friday is coming and we intend to purchase more.
Otherwise though, I will continue to miss my wonderful possessions that sit patiently in boxes awaiting their rescue from the darkness. The time for that to happen needs to hurry though, as I am growing restless.
