#8 - Unpack, #15 - home cooked meal(s), # 41 - clean out closets

#8 - The house is finally unpacked! I finished the last room done today (study) and all is well. Everything looks spectacular. My parents have really helped me out and sped up the process immensely. The only thing left to do is organize the garage (it's a mess). The garage currently holds all my Halloween boxes, Christmas boxes, and tons of other odds and ends of stuff. It's gonna take a good day I think to arrange it and put some stuff up in the attic. However, the inside of the house is done! So I'm marking this task off my list. :-D

#15- With my parents here we've had several home cooked meals. Since I helped make them I'm counting them. ;-) We've had manicotti, chicken and dumplings, apple dumplings and rahm schnitzel...well I helped with all but the rahm schnitzel. I love it when my parents come to visit.

#41 - I wish I had time to do this before the move but oh well. While unpacking I decided to get rid of old shoes and purses that I no longer wanted or used, I think I eliminated about half them! I also decided to get rid of my VHS tapes and my spare VHS player, my old boom box from when I was a child (yes I still had it...now I need a new one because I don't have a stereo system) and some old books. I'll be taking it all to Goodwill once the new year starts. I still have to go through my closet and get rid of all the clothes I no longer wear...that's gonna be a big one.

On a side note, I put up all my Christmas decorations! Even assembled my big Christmas tree and we all decorated it together. It was a great family moment. :-) My brother flies in tonight (Christmas eve) and he'll get to see my new place all decked out! MERRY CHRISTMAS!
