It’s officially crunch time. I have about 2 weeks to finish the camper and move in. To say I am feeling somewhat stressed about it is a complete understatement. I am totally freaking out. The floor has not been laid, the cabinets not hung, the air conditioner not installed, the new batteries have not been switched out, the generator is giving me some issues, the faucets have yet to be switched out, and Yowie isn’t even dewinterized yet. Writing that sentence made me want to cry a little. Also, I am still working a ridiculous amount of hours/week (at my real job) and that is only going to increase as we head into summer. I’m so screwed.
I’m really trying to stay optimistic but I keep falling behind schedule. For example, my to-do list yesterday included hanging all 13 cabinet doors. I had about 2 hours of hustling to get in before I had to go to work and thought I could maybe bang it all out if I was persistent enough. I hung one. It seems every time I set out to do something, it takes about 10x as long as I expect it will. It feels so impossible to stick to my schedule. I have no idea how I am going to do it.
I guess I will either figure it out or I will be living in a super tiny construction zone. Not ideal but it is what it is. I’ve pretty much come to terms with the fact that summer is not going to be an easy one. I am working a job I don’t want to be doing and living in a state I don’t want to be in. I’m 3,000 miles away from my boyfriend. And I’m in a very camper UNfriendly environment. Despite the odds beings somewhat against me, I know this is just how it has to be unless I’m able to figure out an alternate scenario. Time will tell. For now, I need to quit bitchin’ and get workin’.
