Hey everyone. I hope you had a great weekend!
I knew I had to bite the bullet this weekend and really get down to unpacking all of my stuff. Moving was physically exhausting for me because of my recent knee surgery, so I basically moved my stuff in and have been tripping over boxes since then. Lily hasn’t been too impressed with the whole process. Less room to play and all.
I don’t know if anyone else experiences this when they move, but packing basically happens in 3 stages for me:
Stage 1: Starts the second I find out I’m going to move. I begin neatly packing things in organized boxes. Tape, bubble wrap and labeled boxes are involved.
Stage 2: Transition to this stage the week prior to the move. I realize I have a lot of packing left to do so things become *a lot* less organized. Forget bubble wrap… I’ll keep my fingers crossed that nothing breaks.
Stage 3: The night or two before the move. Don’t understand how I have so much crap left to pack… just start dumping things in boxes and figure I’ll sort everything out when I’m unpacking.
So yeah, unpacking the stage 1 boxes was a breeze. Things got a little more hairy with the stage 2 boxes. And I spent 75% of the weekend unpacking the stage 3 boxes. Let’s just say there was a lot of wine and cursing involved. And I’ve been dumping all of my empty boxes on my front porch because my driveway is really long… I’m sure my neighbors love me.
My living room and kitchen are completely unpacked, my bedroom is somewhat unpacked, and I’m still keeping the door closed on my guest bedroom Oh, and I have flowers on my front porch.
Things I need to do now:
– Figure out a bedroom furniture situation. Yeah, I don’t have any right now… but hey, I love a clean slate! If you have any suggestions then please send them my way!
– Purchase a drill. And learn how to use it <—who knew so many things need to be drilled? This should be interesting.
– Pick out a new salt and pepper shaker set. Seems simple but is actually serious business.
What did you do this weekend?
Ladies- serious question. Do you know how to use power tools?
