No Place for me (Trying to unpack)



When I arrived in Detroit, when I officially moved here, I had over 200 boxes. Boxes, bags, suitcases, partly unpacked piles from previous unpacking attempts. Almost that many still remain. I am trying to unpack. Every day, I open a box and wander around with the contents, but can find no place to put them. Today, I unpacked some spices. But the spice rack was full. The spice cupboard was full. I opened some of the spices and combined them. But not all of them were combinable. And I didn't even bring all my spices with me. Imagine how long it will take to unpack a single box if I have to take the tops off spices to combine them in order to be able to remove them from the box? And that's one small box. About 1/4 unpacked so far.

There are boxes everywhere in the house. But the house was already full. There is no place for me in this house. I had a whole housefull of stuff of my own, and I left more than half of it behind. Well, a lot, counting the furniture and the junk. I also left behind stuff I wanted and stuff I might want.

Well, if you tear down those ugly curtains with the dingleberries, you'll have more room! LOL

And get that damn mattress up to G's room. (Honey-do!)

I sorta like the looks of that chair in the livingroom, too...

Little house for lotsa stuff, eh?

As far as I'm concerned you can have all the furnitaure--I'd like to start over. Keith says you can have that one chair but getting it to you is an issue.

YUP

Maybe I should drag that mattress up myself!

Those curtains may not make more room, but their removal would make more light!

Keith is working ten hour days 6 days a week right now and after dinner and a walk and Graham's practicing and reading to Graham, there isn't a lot of time left to work around the house!

Eeks, I'm exhausted just thinking about it. Heck, I'd throw the mattress down on the floor in the livingroom and sleep there!

"My" chair won't fit in your car? ;-)

It's a BIG chair! And has a hassock!
