The Waiting Game Again

Unfortunately, I am playing the waiting game again today. My prescription will be delivered to my house betweeen 7:00 A.M. and 7:00 P.M. That is an awful long time window. It means that I had to be up before that and be ready anytime to answer the door as they will not leave the prescription without a signature. So, that is good that I have a few things to do around the house while waiting. Do you play the waiting game often too?

@marlina I hate when that happens that you have to play the waiting game and someone cannot come at a specific time and then you have the time to yourself. It is hard when you have to get up very early and not sure if someone will come early or in between or late.

I still go out a bit and don't play the waiting game much. I want to do a big grocery haul this week and then after we are well-stocked I believe that I will go back to ordering it and picking it up curbside with the RCSS. Now that the kids are back to school, and the cold and flu season is here, I don't want to go out any more then I have to. We have to wait until Monday when our butcher is in to order another side of beef, and then wait the 28 days it takes to age after the slaughter, and we will be good to stay in safe and sound.

I played the waiting game this morning for my groceries to be delivered. Thankfully they came early enough that it didn't disrupt the day. Hope you get your prescriptions sooner rather than later

No I do not, the only thing I usually have delivered are packages that I don't need to sign for or food delivery and on my app I can see exactly where the delivery person is in relation to my hous.e
