Deepest apologies to all poor souls awaiting fic or art updates from me.
I have been stuck for... going on a week now, with a redecoration of my minute lodgings.
Finding furniture, moving old furniture, piecing together new furniture.
And dust, dust, dust. You'd think I was in the deepest desert. So much dust.
I had no idea how much junk I'd been squirreling away for no apparent reason other than it was mine and... yeah, that's about it.
I'm in the process of whittling down X number of boxes by at least 1/3. It's SLOW work.
Whenever a large package says it needs two or more people to lift, it's probably right, NOT a vague suggestion for "wimpy kids" and "ol' folk".
Same for recommendations where two people are needed to put items together. It avoids a lot of swearing and reprehensibly bad language.
Dust. It's everywhere. Microfibre cloth can only pick up so much before it succumbs to dust. Spent more time vacuuming and dusting than putting stuff together. Would have been smart to purchase more cloths but I kind of forgot about the dust.
When it's too heavy, take an axe to it. In my case I took the hex key to things and it made things a little lighter.
Little things pile up. A "quick furniture swap" turned into a two hour dismantling, vacuuming, replacement and more vacuuming. And it wasn't even my room @_@ It pays to keep track of the little things.
Stay hydrated and cool. Lucky me, this has been a fiercely hot week so I've been stuck indoors with just a lonely fan for company. Fan on, little fan. Fan on!
Keep cats out. Cats make things so much more fun, jumping among piles of books, toppling over large piles of books, staking a claim on semi built things.
Right, have to get back to sorting things out. Will update this ASAP.
