4 boxes left to unbox!
Yeah, you read that right. I'm very serious about the unpacking process. Feeling settled and at home is very important to me.
I woke up completely sore in a way that felt as though I had worked out for the first time in a year. Except I hadn't. I just picked up and put down boxes for hours on end.
I"m realizing that moving artwork from a house with ample wall space to an apartment less than half the size...makes you look like a crazy person. It's like ADD for the eyes. It reminds me a little bit of my teenage self and how I loved to have decorations EVERYWHERE. I think I need to take some things down
I also slept more than 10 hours and had to force myself out of bed. I was so gloriously comfortable, and my sleep has been minimal this past week.
I still haven't bought proper food. I had a breakfast of caramel wafers and potato chips. By dinner time, I convinced myself to go buy some prepared food. Since Japantown is a 4 minute walk away, it was the winner. In the middle of Japantown, I saw a storm trooper. I bought some dividers for my drawers and shelf paper. I also bought 4 salmon onigiris (rice balls) and a ham and cheese Japanese sandwich (the bread is really thin and the sandwich is very dainty).
On my way back, aside from seeing a few homeless people (including a woman who was carrying around a giant egg carton bed cushion thing), the adults I passed by all smiled at me. I love that I live in a city where people smile at each other!
Running out of space in my kitchen cabinets, I think I'm going to buy some adhesive hooks and hang all my pots and pans. I am also now certain that Vans are not going to cut it in this city. I need a dish rack. I may go downtown tomorrow....we'll see.
