So we decided to start unpacking and moving some of our furniture today. We are really thankful that my cousin came over to help babysit Phoebie, otherwise I doubt we wouldn’t have gotten much done.
We are also thankful for our friend who came over to lend his muscles. Don’t think we could have moved the furniture by ourselves.
While Phoebie was having a good time in her room with her 姨姨 (Chinese for Aunty from the maternal side of the family), and the guys were busy moving furniture, I was busy measuring and cutting the drawer liners for the cabinets in the kitchen.
With the dining table up, I realized that I may have to change my plans to put a shelf at the wall behind Phoebie. I had insisted on getting the shelf because I was so sure I wanted a shelf there. Alas, I forgot how super big our dining table is, and if I want the table nearer to the wall, I can’t put the shelf there.
At this point, I can also hear Ben say, “I told you so, buy the shelf later.”
Alright, so I guess I shld have listened. Ladies, sometimes the husband is right. Some things can be bought later. By the way, they are only right sometimes. ;P
We probably didn’t even unpack 10% of the boxes, but at least we got started 🙂 And with the kitchen cabinets all lined with drawer liners, the next unpacking session will be more efficient. 🙂
Thanks Bi Hsin, for babysitting today 🙂 I probably wouldn’t have gotten much done if not for your help.
And thanks Edwin, for lending your muscles. 🙂 Please note though, that we will need your muscles again until we are totally unpacked. Haha…
