Even though we got rid of tons and tons of stuff before we moved....we still have tons and tons of stuff, lol! It is currently a nightmare of boxes, paper, and piles upon piles of stuff around here. The movers, who were just about as awesome as awesome can be!, left around 3:30pm yesterday. Before they left, I had already started unpacking boxes. And we went hard till about 7:30pm when it was Bella's bathtime. By then, we had made up both beds (although I still haven't found Bella's dust ruffle or canopy curtains), and hooked up the TV center. Priorities, right?!?!? We also unpacked tons of boxes and made enough room to walk around without breaking anything or killing ourselves.
The weather held out yesterday (PRAISE GOD!!!), with just a bit of sprinkling here and there. Then around dinnertime it just came pouring down and has been raining ever since. You would think that with finally have my gorgeous, comfy bed and heavy rain, I would have slept like a brick...but not so much. Have you ever had unpacking dreams??? Oh my!! I just couldn't turn off my brain and I'm not sure if I spent more time awake thinking about unpacking, or asleep. But at least I was very, very comfortable!! And watching TV on a big screen? On our pillowy-soft livingroom furniture? Bliss!!
Right now we're at that stage where you have to make a disaster out of an area before you see any progress. I unpack box, after box, after box and think....haven't I accomplished anything??? Until I see that I can actually see the floor in more and more places, lol! Every flat surface has piles of stuff. My OCD is having fits with that, but for now, it is what it is. We have very little wall space now that the furniture is here and I have soooooo many pictures, and posters, and paintings and do-dads that will most likely wind up in storage. I would take photos, except at the moment my camera isn't accessible and by the time it is, I'm afraid I'll be too exhausted, lol!
So we're here and we are making Italy home. Finally. Excedrin all around!!!
