We are hobo'ing it up over here. And when you go dumpster fishing for boxes, you can say such things.
Speaking of boxes.... who in the hell pays for boxes? Chris has been pushing on me each night to go up to the hardware store and BUY boxes. I was all like, um no... you get those from store's garbage piles. Well, then I am trolling around and see nothing. Feeling discouraged, I return a movie to Redbox and just for the hell of it, decide to drive around this family grocery store. Lo and Behold... Thou had boxes! Like a lot of boxes. Already broken down and organized by size on this cart. They look to be boxes that hold bags of chips.
So I feel like I struck the mother load. Only to get home and realize that these boxes are the returnable kind, meaning the grocery store gives them back to the chip company to reuse. I feel kind of bad, but not bad enough to return them. So I pack up anything that can be packed. The rest of the kitchen, laundry room, hallway closet, living room, etc.
I told Chris that I am just borrowing these boxes at this point. I will return them all when I am done. Right? I am sure the chip company would love to see what I have written on the outside of these boxes. BATHROOM: tampons, q-tips, beach towels, coochie cream. And of course, I had to write that in three different spots on the box.
Other ways we are living like hobos, in case stealing boxes doesn't count....
We had this upright dresser in our room since before we were married. It was one of those $60 deals that comes in a small box in 5020 pieces. I remember being pregnant with Haven and watching Chris put it together as I was laying on the couch. He was about 3/4 done and figured out that it was missing a handle. I think that was the first time I ever saw him mad. Anyway, I loathe this dresser. And the bottom drawer is kind of broken from little toddlers climbing. So I told Chris to go throw it away. We have to buy an entire house worth of furniture... what's one more dresser?
So in the meantime, all of our undies are in a box... an open box you know, so that we are not wearing the same pair for the next ten days.
And finally, I feel like a hobo because we are officially living off of paper plates and plastic utensils. I know a lot of people that live off of paper plates all of the time, but I do not. Even if we pick up food, I still come home and put it on a plate. It makes me feel fancy eating off my of my white dishes. But now everything is packed. And I went to pour some Cheerios yesterday and realized that I didn't buy any disposable bowls. So Big Holly topped off a big plastic cup with cereal and milk, then chomped that ish down before the little kids wanted in on the action.
But in happy news, the house passed the last of the inspections. We were just waiting for the gas company and I now I think we are in the free & easy zone. 10 days!!
