Mon mari's ears are burning.
Or, at least, they should be.
I have been cursing him roundly for the last 4 hours.
He, smart man that he is, escaped to the plumbing store in order to fix the shower drain.
You guessed it! The move is has not gone as smoothly as one could hope.
We said 'au revoir' to Vlad's house yesterday afternoon, after 3 trips hauling stuff by mon mari and 7 hours of packing and cleaning by yours truly.
At our house, this is what we needed to turn into a bedroom of sorts….
Which we did. Emma supervised; Sedi couldn't be bothered.
The reason I'm less then pleased with mon mari today is this:
We have 2 rooms, plus the barn and the upstairs stacked with boxes.
Mon mari packed the kitchen.
It started out well. The early numbered boxes have descriptions like:
As time went on one can tell he was getting bored:
128. More white dishes
Then he started getting snippy:
Finally, he just said to hell with it all:
168. Last minutes stuff
So far today, I have gone through 10 boxes of "Last minute stuff" and I still have not found 2 plates, 2 forks and 2 knives so that we can eat.
Wouldn't you think that those would be last minutes packing? I mean, we ate those last few days, didn't we?
Last night we ate a pizza using our hands and paper towels for plates.
There are over 68 kitchen boxes. Wouldn't you think that he might have labeled the things I use the most, like the teapot and coffee mugs?
I know exactly where the large turkey platter I last used 15 years ago at Thanksgiving is….
But I have no idea where the coffee maker is….
My morning did not get off to a good start.
It would be different if the kitchen were finished and I could just unpack them all. But this is what I have to work with for the next few days.
On the other hand, isn't our shower door lovely?
In case it isn't obvious, the small panel swings, but it's a 'walk-in' shower.
And I'm very pleased with the laundry/pantry room… Which stared looking like this:
And now looks like this:
I had every intention of posting a delectable recipe today….
But I really need to go search for the toaster….
