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.

I remember my daughter saying she had to buy "shrunks" (plural) to hang her clothes in, as Germany doesn't seem to believe in closets! ;-Þ

Even amidst the mess, I'm sure life will 'feel' more normal once you're connected to the net and the world again. I hope, for you ,that it's soon!
