Still no electrician, but there's a person who makes things waterproof, so i can shower soon.

I've made sure all dishes are done, i relaxed, watched tv, had some food, and had a bike ride. My back still isn't happy but it's a lot better. defn. not going to move tables and chairs around to try and clean. But i will semi clean the other stuff i run into and is easy enough to do.

I think electrician must then come tomorrow? and tomorrow cleaners, or maybe monday cleaners. I certainly can't pre-clean for them. it is what it is.

Wow, friday, perhaps the last day of renovation? WILL THE TERROR END
haha
Okay, best of luck everybody and thank you for allowing me to express my anxiety into forum posts to try and make sense of things i have no control over.

This week was 'easier' mentally than last week, and with weeks left in this month I can prepare for june, recover from april, and leave spring behind me soon. Less items on my anxiety-todo list is a huge yay.

I've started laundry,
I am airing out the apartment,
I have the dryer going in a minute as laundry is soon done.
I've cleaned the kitchen sink, and some surface areas,
And I have very little dishes.
Groceries were ordered and should arrive around 10am

The sensors I bought to take temps, i've installed those.

The contractor was here, checking how it went, we exchanged keys and signatures.
He called electrician, who confirmed they will be here today. Then this apartment is DONE.

Saturday: rest day!

- airing out the apartment,
- inspected the toilet room and bathroom and took notes so i can call them on monday (butterfly valve is broken and the sink seems to leak when you use it)
- gathered dishes together, didn't feel like doing them,
- cleaned toilet bowl
- figured out how the ventilation valves worked
- moved a 'stand' to the balcony again, now that the temps go up.
- moved a few of the other stands aside, made space, and swiffered the floor there so there's less dust.
- moved that back and moved chairs in the clean spot, making space in another square meter or two, and repeated the task.
- food prep last night, i made 4 days, tonight and three more days.

Still quite a list!
Airing out the house helps so much with fighting dust, and things in the air that we can infect others with. You lower the chances of the flu and covid etc. And the smells will be gone. The inside temp is 19 to 21 during the day, and the outside temp is 16 to 25 during the day. So I don't mind a bit cool air in the morning for 15 to 30 minutes, and then slowly warm it up. The heater can be turned off again thankfully.

I can't hover yet, the particles of the cement and wall crap is a killer for hoover filters. So I have to manually dist and collect, and once the worst is gone, i can hover the edges and the rest, then replace the filter and bag.

Sunday,

My goal for today is to enjoy the weather, and clean a bit in one particular section of my apartment to fight the dust they've caused. =Relaxing, for mental and physical reasons.

I will however upkeep the dishes because the dishwasher isn't installed. I don't want to fall behind. The sink is low, I am tall. I hate the back pain it gives me. So I rather do 5 minutes+ than 15+ minutes. That said, I have to go get soap, I am out, haha.

My first shower in the new bathroom last night, OOOOOH finally. First shower I had was at my sisters place, last weekend, now finally at my own place, last night. SO GOOD. haha. It's crazy how spoiled we are as humans that we don't settle for the sink and a cloth, but that we want a fancy shower on almost a daily basis. I can't imagine what people in certain countries and situations must go through.

It's 11c on the balcony according to the sensor, but it's a lovely spring day. I am opening the balcony door and curtains, get some sunlight for the plants again of course, and light in the apartment. And fresh air. I will have lunch on the balcony later when it hits the south side.

Another thing I will do is continue my little schedule for the week.

Monday, report back to the company about the sink in the toiletroom, and the valve they broke.
They said they're will be people coming to fix the fuse box, i will also inquire about that, see if she knows when that will be.
And I have to ask her when in week 19 the cleaners will come, if that's still a thing.

Start cleaning what I can in 1 room, on mon,tue,wed,thu,fri .. so I have done at least Something in 5 rooms.
And then make an appointment with B. to see when she wants to come first, for the windows/wood inside and out. And then another day for kitchen and livingroom.

Slowly but surely each morning or evening I will also try to move certain things back in their place as well.


edit:
- Aired out apartment
- organized dishes (didn't start it, still need to buy soap)
- put laundry in washing machine (didn't start it)
- had a shave (not a clean one, but, removed a month of beard haha)
- had another shower (because i finally have a shower)
- i have bread baguette that needs to be finished, so i airfryered it. turned out great as always. (eating 40% for breakfast/brunch now)
- cleaned the kitchen sink, toilet sink, bathroom sink.
- time for youtube, hobbies, and relaxing unti lthe store opens in a few hours.

Monday:

Slept so so, but i slept. But I feel a bit eh .. weird. dunno, just tired from all the hectic stuff i guess

Fuse box got replaced, then someone else came to check values, they're gone. It is possible someone else will come again later, they seem to have miscommunicated a bit.

Didn't do much more than figure out what's going on and test the electronics after they've left to figure out what lamp, wallsocket etc is what group.

Emailed the rent company people back , since they still have my old phone number and again clearly didn't remove it from their system. rolleyes

Contacted the renovation company but had to leave a voicemail.

- about to do laundry

- electricity thing is all done for the day, I THINK.. we will find out.

- legal emails all done.

- renovation company and housing corporation emails and calls all done.

- went to get a chicken sandwich and bought cheese and drink. So i dont go and end up doing full groceries today.

- airing out the apartment, it's nice and warm. But i have that pre-rainstorm headache from the pressure difference (at least, that' show it feels like)

- watered the plants

- i am not going to dust anything today, not with this annoying headache. but i will wipe off some surfaces like in the kitchen, bathroom, computer room, and stuff like that. it's 5s per surface.

edit

Forgot to start laundry, Lol..
and the plummer came to fix the leak on the sink. so that's sorted too.
