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...

I don't know if I can get rid of the mold. It would have to be my landlady, and she's not going to do anything expensive right now - she has like five properties that all need work done. :-( I think I'm going to get a dehumidifier and hope for the best...

And no, still no sign of the blender!! I've unpacked almost all of the kitchen stuff now. It must have been stuck in a differently marked box. I think the third blender is in a box at my mom's house - I'm going there today, hopefully I'll find it!
