Thoughts on Unpacking

Thoughts going through my mind as we try to organize our belongings into a home:

I'd like to ___________ (hang the shower curtain, assemble the bed, dry my hair, etc) if only I could find ______________(curtain rings, the set of screws, my hair dryer, etc.)

Hey look - that fits perfectly there!

Where are my indoor shoes?

Hmm . . . where on earth are we going to put this piece of furniture?

Hey! That thing!

Wow. Our master bedroom is stinkin' huge.

Where are my indoor shoes?

It's amazing how fast our dog can run when given the chance.

I love Target.

Where did all this stuff come from?

I still need my indoor shoes.


  1. Wow, I don't envy you the unpacking, but there is still something kind of exciting about getting settled into a new place! It's been 5 1/2 years since we moved to Arizona, and just the other day I realized I don't get that "I wish I could find _____; I know just where it was in the Marquette house, but I can't remember where it is here," feeling anymore.

    Have fun with the unpacking, and I hope you find your indoor shoes! :)

  2. I did Amy, thanks! I'm actually amazed at how quickly this is going. I thought we'd be unpacking and unsettled for a long time, but most of the boxes are unpacked - just Erik's office left because we haven't painted in there and it's too small of a room to paint with furniture and computer equipment all set up.
