In the last four days we’ve unpacked every single box in our house. Because we didn’t pack and label the moving boxes ourselves, and because of the wacky way our movers on the Hawaii end managed the pack-out (or not managed it as the case may be), and the illegible writing on the boxes, we really had no idea what was in each one.
On day one hubby unpacked the TV, but it wasn’t until the end of day four, and the very last box that we found the stand for it. Perhaps looking for the stand was motivation to keep him unpacking though.
See those nice little glass containers on the shelf? I thought I had unpacked all the kitchen stuff, but when I tried to put away some leftovers in one of those containers last night, I had no lids! I spent all afternoon today going through 12 boxes of packing paper thinking that I had missed the lids in the wrapping. I found a shot glass I was willing to live without, a nice drawing pencil, and a napkin ring, but no lids. So, I went back to look in the cabinets for aces to stash the lids, and, wouldn’t you know it, the lids had been in that blue lunch box the whole time!
