A couple of weeks ago, my House Hold Effects (HHE) were delivered. The apartment I have now is about half of what we had in Ankara, so I knew it would be a challenge to find places for everything great and small. Below are pictures of my apartment balcony before delivery.The living room / dining area The messy Master bedroomThe guest bedroomThe small office.Then the delivery came. And then the long process of un-boxing. And notice the white trash bags of paper. So far, I have 12 of them and there should be about 3-4 more. There were about 145 boxes and I still have about a 15-20 to sort through and pack away in the utility room bathroom, which is now become my storage unit. No problem though, because I still have four more toilets. The following pics show the slow progress. I tried my best to keep the kitchen free for me to function in it, as I like to eat. And the living room is starting to look good with the Persian rug and Turkish lamp.It will be months more before I can finally say, it is finish. But in about a month from now, I will have about a dozen items to sell at the Consulate. I have a big box of baking stuff that I will trade for double layer chocolate cake with just a very thin layer of chocolate icing. I bet there will be takers.
Until later, continue kicking butt as I will. D.
