If it's been more than a few days since they told you that they'd be starting tomorrow, I'd be calling them just to make sure that it's still on. More so if they said they'd be giving you a list of things to do first. It's very common to have a delayed start - bad weather or a previous project that took longer to finish out are common reasons. Or maybe the whole crew is hung over from New Years? We usually set things up with a ballpark start day, then when we are about a week out and know our schedule better we give a "looks like we are good for ....." call. Then confirm the day before that we are still on. But realistically, much more typical for things to be delayed vs starting early.

If it's typical floating or laminate flooring, they'll be two skids, each about 4' long, 3' wide and about 2' tall.

Enjoy! (Or tear your hair out while screaming in frustration, either works)

Yay actual humans. Our floor delivery dates, texts, have morphed between 2 days ago to next week. Within hours. So called the W Houston terminal and talked to a person. Iris! She scheduled it for tomorrow rather than waiting for 3rd party residential carrier. Iris rocks!

Probably grossed out one of our main worker guys. Water is off for shower plumbing work. J had to take massive dump. Guy went into bath, told him water off, use a bush...
I mean earlier J went to Kroger.

Moved clothes from lower level of our closet since floor tiling tomorrow. Jeff has more f!@#$ing old shirts and shit than I. WTF.

When painting etc starts just send a fucking forklift.

The noise. The dust is brutal. Not complaining. Well, whinging. They are just going after it but with the freezing temps I'm hoping the heater doesn't vomit...
Kept it low during the day.

We have tried just about every possible way to avoid the dust - Covering everything, fans ducted outside from the main work areas, series of fans to get the dust outside, vacs hooked up to power tools etc. Every bit helps but it's impossible to keep the dust from getting everywhere.

Hang in there.
