Still unpacking...

Since I work 7 11 hour nights in a row, I haven't had a lot of unpacking time since I moved my stuff here. I do have most of the kitchen boxes unpacked (and still no blender), but it's amazing how much stuff that means I have to WASH and try to figure out where to PUT... and now I'm getting to the boxes that I'm just not sure what to do with right now, because they are in front of the bookcases, etc., that they have to be unpacked into, and the boxes are just really heavy. And there's a mattress and box springs leaning against one bookcase. So, I guess I will just have to unpack things on to the floor for a while so I can move them.

I hate moving. :-) I will be so glad when it is all done!

Cranky unpacking weaver who isn't weaving

Hard to believe I have done NO weaving or embroidery for MONTHS now. No wonder I'm going crazy.

I finally got all of my stuff moved up here October 27th, and am in the process of unpacking. Had the movers not piled boxes in front of my bookcases and shelving units, that would be easier. I'm focusing on the kitchen first, will deal with the books and art stuff later (which, of course, means any "play" time will end up after it's all done - a cruel scheme on someone's part, I'm sure).

My poor furniture has mold issues, which isn't helped by the fact that this HOUSE has mold issues - the plumbing had problems before I moved in, and the crawl space under the house flooded, and now every time you open a cabinet door you almost can't breathe because of the mildew smell. Add to that the layer of mildew all over my furniture from the theoretically climate controlled storage unit (which was over 100 degrees when I went there in August), and my allergies are not happy.

Yes, I am complaining. I'm quite certain it will all be better eventually, but right now, I am CRANKY. I just want the mold to be gone, everything to be unpacked, there to be a PLACE for everything, people to do what they SAY they are going to do, and all of these boxes to be GONE so I can just weave and be happy again.

And I WANT to find my BLENDER. I have three, and the only one I have found is the one I got for my wedding, which doesn't even work anymore and I had thought I got rid of it when I got the second one when I lived in Dallas, but apparently not because it got packed, but I can't find the replacement OR the one I bought when I was in Brenham. I need to be able to make smoothies again!

Okay. Going to go find my allergy pills and get back to unpacking again...
