Perhaps I should narrow it down just a bit.....When I was bitching about how I didn't have of my stuff and how I really wanted my HHE (household effects) to get here so that I could FINALLY move in? Remember that?
I was wrong. What the hell was I thinking?? I don't need this crap!
Today I spent the entire day unpacking stupid boxes. THE ENTIRE DAY! And THIS is what I STILL have left to unpack.
WTF?! As I unpack box after box of crap and try to find someplace to put stuff, I realize that I actually have not missed having any of this! In fact, for the last three months, I was doing just fine without any of it!
Also, Sudan? Not so big on closets. There literally is not one single closet in this place. NOT ONE! We have some armoires for clothes, but towels, crap, etc....NOTHING. Now I'm going to have to be creative. Maybe make some decorative art out of the medicines and lotions.
Josh, my neat freak, nothing can be out on the kitchen counters hubby, would totally blow a gasket if he were here right now. He'd be out looking for wood so he could build some cupboards so that we could put stuff away!!!
Seriously, not sure where I am going to put all this shit. Normally, I'd have a big ole yard sale, but I am guessing the fugees who live outside the compound in their carboard box-constructed houses aren't going to want my crap either. On the bright side, however, they are probably going to be able to add a second wing with all the boxes and packing materials I'm throwing out here! YOU ARE WELCOME FUGEES!
I wonder if they'll name their guest house the Michel Memorial Wing after they find my body amidst the boxes and packing paper!?
Oh, and as a little valuable lesson for you all - do not attempt to ship chocolate chips into Sudan with the rest of your consumables. Little known fact: Chocolate chips, when exposed to temperatures of upwards of 120 degrees, will melt into one large chocolate mess. Honestly, there really should be some sort of sign posted on the bag. How is anyone supposed to know this stuff?!?!!
Naturally, I have now frozen them into large chocolate blocks. Not so sure what to do with them now. Please, no suggestions to chip off little chips to make cookies. I think we all know I'm too lazy for that!
So, I will attempt to leave work a little early tomorrow so that I can continue my quest to unpack all these damn boxes and/or learn to live with them in the dining room. However, remember how you all commented on how the house looks all stark and hotel-like? Well, I hope you're happy now.
I wonder why I can't get the theme song of Sanford and Son out of my head??
Sometimes? I'm Judgmental. Also, Seattle!
