I think that the boxes are multiplying in the dark...


I finally unpacked and put away things in the Living Room... so, I'd have at least one area that looked 'finished'... it really has helped too--- it was getting so discouraging to have stuff all over the rooms, waiting to find their new home, boxes ready to open, etc. It's just difficult to do much during the week- I have worked all weekend the past 2 weekends... (my things were delivered on a THUR and I had that weekend and then this weekend to unpack)

I know it will get done eventually... but, I'm ready for it to be finished now.


The other morning, it was so foggy you couldn't SEE ANYTHING... even the reflective line on the side of the road was difficult to see. I was glad that there was a truck in front of me for awhile- I could follow his fuzzy red lights.

I found out that when I turn on the oven... (electical) it trips the lights in the house and other things 'off'... I'm glad it wasn't dark when it happened- because, I didn't even know where the fuse box was located! I tried two times and decided not to continue trying to use the oven. Once the house is unpacked and 'landlord' visitor ready- I'll ask the landlord to come and look at it for me.

Last Sunday, I stopped unpacking about 7:00pm... (I had started that morning at 7am) and decided to watch a movie on my DVD player. Yes, I had hooked that up rather quickly- since, I didn't have a tv or a radio to listen to. :D

I watched one of the THIN MAN movies and knitted a little baby bootie for a gift. It was so much fun to finally have my hand well enough to knit something. Have you ever seen any of the THIN MAN movies?

Keep checking in... I'm sure that I'll have Internet and phone service soon... I'm sure of it. Really, I am... after all... 5 weeks have gone by since I first signed up for the service.

Living in a sea of boxes and no Internet

Makes one very tired and cranky... and...

All I can say is... I HAVE TOO MUCH STUFF...

I had my things delivered last Thursday and went back to teach on Friday- unpacked Friday night, all day Saturday and Sunday. I am already tired of going up and down the stairs to return items to their proper locations... you find all sorts of items packed in the boxes that the movers in Korea packed up.

I don't have anything to hang clothes up in--- I need to buy wardrobes... sort of a small (some are big) free standing closet type of box w/ doors and a closet rod. I have found the pink top and bottom sheets and the yellow pillowcase. One pillowcase. They don't match- but, boy is my bed many times more comfortable that the military loaner bed. It was so hard- that nothing moved nor was there any compressing down of the mattress when you sat or laid down on the bed.

I did find my vaccum cleaner and it will come in handy to clean things 'once' I finally get the boxes unpacked.

Still no phone and/or Internet service at my new home.

Oh, and my American shower curtain is about 10 inches too short... and as you might expect there is some 'water spraying' along the floor. I plan to figure out something to fix this 'get the bathroom floor wet'problem.
