seventh inning stretch

I have been working on the house all day. Well, really, I’ve been working on my room all day.

It’s amazing how long unpacking takes.

I’m still not done.  That sucks.

But, happily, all of the boxes are unpacked.  Doesn’t mean that everything has a place, yet, but we are making progress.

For example, I have done the following in the past 36 hours:

  • Bought a router, a TV, oodles of cable, curtain rods, and assorted household items.
  • Strung cable across our house into the other two bedrooms and nailed those suckers into the floor, the whole time thinking “my MOM does stuff like this…I am becoming my mom!”
  • Sewed, half by hand, a 35″ wide and 80″ long curtain panel.
  • Unpacked and sorted my desk stuff, which included putting up my whiteboard and my diplomas and moving my stereo into my room.
  • Hung my curtain rods and my curtain panel–which looks awesome.

I’m sure I’ve done more than that, but that’s all I can really think of right now.  I haven’t even done my bed yet, which I have to put together again because I have a new comforter.  I haven’t a clue what I’m going to do with my old one.


Why does everything take so LONG? I just want everything to be done.

I’m entertaining here on Friday, and everything WILL be done.  We are getting the couches like a half an hour before the guests come.  Couldn’t be helped, I guess.  I don’t think I’m going to have to do a whole lot with that, because I’ve recruited some people to help with the heavy lifting.

Don’t say I’m not good with the planning. I am awesome.

I’m excited about finally having all of the furniture that we’re actually going to have so that we can decide what colors we’re going to do the living room in, since we’ll be painting.

And now I’m just blathering on.


Gotta get done so that I can take a shower and go get my syllabus copied before tomorrow’s first class. And eating dinner wouldn’t suck at some point.


Back to work.
