Unpacking: A Glimpse

Try moving your family of 5 and a dog back into your parents house. It's not easy. Unpacking was challenging to say the least. There is not room for much. My mom is an artist. There are paintings everywhere. She also dabbled in glass work so there are a ton of glass pieces, too. Oh and did I mention that her dining chairs are WHITE? White fabric?! Oy vey. What was I thinking probably crossed my mind a few hundred times. No joke. The last time I was here I had a 6 month old who couldn't walk and get into anything. Chime the "A Whole New World" from Aladdin. You know you want to sing it.

I digress.  I don't like living amongst boxes so the unpacking was a constant nagging in the back of my mind until every box was gone. The challenging part came when I had to go through my old room first. Basically exactly what I did in our house in VA needed to be done in my old room in FL. I came up with a room full of donate items. Once that was done I could figure out where to put all the shite we brought. It was like fitting a square peg into a round hole. Somehow we did it. I packed everything minus a few boxes that the hubs packed. That being said, he did do all the major heavy lifting and he was the Tetris mastermind behind organizing the uhaul and our storage container. Thanks goodness it's done and over. At least until the next move.

The day we got here. We had 2 days to unpack the uhaul and 2 houses to unload on.

Note to self: Give yourself more time to unpack and get settled. You are not wonder woman. You cannot physically or mentally unpack, get settled and figure out your life in a 2 week period. Not possible.
