It has been five months since we moved into a bigger apartment. Since moving in, I only managed to unbox a number of our moving boxes. I still have loads of boxes that need to be opened and put way. This has been a dilemma because I find myself always stuck in doing other things instead.
What has been keeping me from unboxing them? There are a number of reasons really.
First, I find myself always pressed for time. This is because my workhours have increased. I now work more hours in a day, which only gives me enough time to be able to fetch my daughter on time in school or be at home to open the door for my little girl who is coming home from school. And you know how it is with kids. They would, more often than not, ask you you to be with them once they get home from school. I try to spend time with her as much as I can. And if there's after school activities. I would also have to prepare with her so that we may be able to leave on time. And then it is almost dinner time. Being a Filipino household, we always eat a warm, Filipino meal. Once dinner is served and we have eaten, I am already too tired to even clear the table. And so I would have to set aside again the unboxing tomorrow. And this would go on and on like vicious cycle. So there, there just isnt's enough time.
Second, lack of furniture. We still need to procure book shelves and cabinets for the living room so that I will finally have a place to put in all the books and files that are inside them boxes. It is not as simple as you think because it will require budgeting, measuring, choosing the right furniture and putting them all together so that it will have a unity with the other furniture pieces that are already in our living room.
So yes, it has been five months already since we moved in and still, I still have a room full of boxes waiting to be unboxed. But of course, I have already set a deadline for myself on when this should be accomplished. My target date is by the end of May 2017. Why in May 2017 you would ask?
Well, that is another story...
