Or maybe it's just me.
So, we landed.
In the field.
I think I've heard rumours that Randall has been keeping his blog updated with photos.
But, as for me, I've just been plugging away at the boxes.
I think most of the kitchen has been unpacked and put away.
In spite of kitchen cupboards that seem to have been made for much taller people than myself...
But, with our Grandma Stool, (which has a firm top step/seat and 2 slightly shaky fold down steps) I've been able to adequately reach the top of the top.
All but the big cupboard over the fridge, which has a lower shelf (no problem) and an upper roll out "basket" shelf. I can sort of toss the cereal boxes and snack food into the basket, but as it rolls out right over my head, I have a bit of trouble getting them out again.
This is just a little problem that, with a larger 4 step ladder, will be managed.
I have only discovered 3 moving tragedies so far. The one that might have made me the most sad was repairable.
I did get a little sad when I unpacked my metronome today...
But I took Micah to school this morning.
More importantly, I found my way home again.
It seems like a really nice little school. I liked it.
I met Micah's new Teacher, some fill-in Secretaries, the 2 Bus Drivers, the School Custodian and a T.A. All very friendly. I'm sure Micah will have a great rest of the year there.
Oh! I tried out the new cooker yesterday. Both the stove and the oven. No, I'm not inept, but it's a gas stove/oven and I've never used one before. Everything turned out well.
I also got a start on washing the sheets and towels that were used for packing. The washer is almost exactly like my old one, and it only took me a minute to figure out how to turn the dryer on. So I'm doing alright.
I'm still unbelievably tired, though.
The best part of the day continues to be the first few moments of sliding into bed.
And I seem to have brought the "must keep house in show-home order" condition with me. It's a bit of a nuisance. I'm sure I'll get over it in time.
The boxes are calling though. It's a very satisfying thing to flatten another box.
You'll forgive me if I give the odd one an extra stomp.
