WOYWW and not a rocking horse in sight

I've been working this entire day, beginning this morning when the red trucks pulled up to my house. I haven't had time to visit anyone, including Julia at Stamping Ground, our hostess.


My art supplies had finally been returned. Or were in the process of such.


The two people were there to deliver my boxes. They were not there to help set anything up or help me unpack.


There are boxes everywhere. Big boxes,


medium sized boxes, but no


poles/spacers to assemble my shelving. So, I'm stuck. They are telling me the shelving spacers or poles or whatever you call them, are probably in a box or two somewhere and they were just there to return the boxes, not assemble the furniture. So I'm apparently on my own. I've opened a few boxes looking for the spacers for the shelving, but to no avail. In case you can't tell, there are over 100 boxes in the craft room and hallway. Each box had a number marked on it, so that's how I know how many I had.

Thanks for visiting. Sorry no rocking horses tonight, because there's no room to put one. I STILL can't leave comments to blogs with embedded comments and I can't send you an e-mail unless yours is on your blog or profile page. I'm going to repeat this rant message until Blogger, who I've contacted, actually does something about it! And, yes I unchecked the "stay signed in" box over three weeks ago to no avail.

Happy WOYWW. You know I'll be in my basement looking for ways to assemble shelving for the next three weeks or so. Then maybe I can start putting a few things away.

Oh my heart goes out to you Elisabeth no poles or things for the craft room actually that is quite scarey how many boxes there are. I pray you dont have to open too many more boxes to find those pesky spacers and that blogger gets nice to you very very soon!! God bless, Shaz in oz.x

voodoo vixen said...

Oh dear... it would have helped if they had labelled the dang boxes when they were filling them up!! Hope you come across the spacers soon as there is nothing worse than opening boxes and having nowhere to put the stuff (she speaks from experience)!!
Yep, them scissors are pink and green! I got them for becoming a Fiskarette - pretty cool eh? LOL

Sue from Oregon said...

I am tired just looking at all these boxes. I would certainly help if I was your neighbor! good luck finding your spacers!

Helen said...

Whooo. Wishing you joy finding your spacers for the shelves - that is a serious amount of unpacking you have. Much love!

JoZart said...

Oh, Elizabeth, you could surely do with some help just now and I wish I could give you some! What a daunting task and as always, nothing is straightforward.
Take your time and don't overdo it.
Hope you get your blogger problems sorted too!
Love JoZarty x

So many boxes, so little time! Shame, I feel for you, not enough to come over and help, but I still feel for you.
Hope you find those spacers soon.
Happy WOYWW I have given up on blogger and now comment 'anonymously'

Neet said...

Wish I lived closer so I could help. What a pickle! Hope Bleubeard is keeping out of it as I would hate him to get in one of the boxes. Come to think of it he would probably love to be in a box - my little Tabitha would be in a box, suitcase, bag as soon as she could - even at times if there was stuff in it.
Hope you get sorted soon,nothing seems to be going right for you at the moment.
Hugs, Neet #12 (but don't worry about leaving a comment/email - just like to comment on yours)

Cor blimey - you going to need some serious energy and willpower to suss that lot out. Hope the spacers turn up soon and that you will soon have your oasis back and that maybe Blogger like your new place too.

The Paper Princess said...

Sorry you are still having trouble with Blogger! I am now on WP so hopefully when you visit again, you will have an easier time of things!

Good luck unpacking - hope you settle in soon!

see you there! said...

Overwhelming is the word that comes to mind. You have a serious amount of art supplies and I know it will be a relief to get them out of boxes and on to shelving.

Cath said...

elle said...

OYE! This is where the 'virtual' part of friendship with bloggers falls apart. Sorry to be unable to help. But then, the bright side is where would you put 100 bloggy friends who were champing at the bit tofind the supports and rock those 100 boxes unto shelves! :O

ooglebloops said...

How daunting is that????? Opening boxes will be like finding things you had forgotten about!!! Hope you find the shelving first!!!

Magpie said...

Oh my, you do need some help! I also wish I could give you a hand. Good luck and don't wear yourself out!

I've changed my comments to not be embedded. I think that is a lot quicker than waiting for Blogger lol.

Elizabeth said...

Oh dear, how bad can things get - no rocking horse :( It's a bad situation - all those boxes, no poles, and nowhere to put your stuff. Let's hope you find that shelving soon - before you get to the last box would be good. Hope your WOYWW gets better. Elizabeth x #83

Angie said...

I remeber all the boxes when I moved 6 years ago ...it took over a year to open and home everything. Can I suggest that if the contents are not marked already on the box that you give a vague description on it as you open and probably close again ...each box....then when you find the poles that allow you to start to reconstrust things you know which boxes to open next.GOOD LUCK ...I send you loads of good vibes ...and hugs.

Kathleen said...

yep you need help hope you get it all sorted out soon,

jude said...

Dianne said...

oh man, if I were closer I'd come and help you look and unpack! do you know any Boy Scouts? they would really be doing you a good turn to help out...tho having boys poking through your boxes would probably be a whole 'nother can of worms! hang in there and don't overdo! hugs...

Linda Manning Findley said...

oh "E" so sorry .... I have been in that situation all to recently and I FEEL for you ... take a deep breath and know it will get done ... you just have to eat that elephant one bite at a time .... ;-) ... Linda F

nerllybird said...

Ah. Well. What you need to do, you see, as well as putting numbers on the boxes, is to write what is in them.....lol! Never mind, it will be really fun unpacking them all, and I hope you find the spacers soon!

Carola Bartz said...

Those are a LOT of boxes. It really sucks that you have nowhere to put your stuff. I really hope that you find the poles etc. whatever you need to assemble the shelves pretty soon. It looks like a ton of work.

Hands to Work, Hearts to God said...

Oh my, what a lot of work! Don't you have nephews and nieces or neighbors eager to help out? I don't think I could tackle that on my lonesome. Be sure to pace yourself. Hope you can find those spacers soon. :^) patsy

April said...

Wow! that is alot of boxes!!! I hope you find your shelving parts soon! good luck with it all. Thanks for sharing.

Cardarian said...

You do have a lot of boxes of art supplies - I hope you get that shelving sorted as those supplies need to come out of those boxes - wishing you all the best!
Hugs,
Cardarian

Marilyn Rock said...

If I loved, near, I would love to help you with this unpacking of the art supplies. Just think - with each and every box, it would be like seeing some of these for the first time! Cool! But - I know a lot of work!

xxoo

MaggieC said...

That is seriously stressful to have to resort all those boxes, and no shelving ready to sort it onto. Just think of the wonderful time you will have once it is all in place. Good luck and have fun.

Franka Benjaminsen said...

Looks there is something serious going on. Hope you find the space and energy to unpack all your boxes. When I unpacked all my boxes, after a removal, it sometimes felt like boxing day.
Wishing you good luck and hope you've got organised soon.
Bye, Franka

Kezzy said...

Oh poor you, so close to your art supplies yet so far. Im sure if us woywwers where living near you we would all be around searching for shelving spacers/poles!!!! Good luck. Kezzy x

Morti said...

Oh my - good luck with all that! I'm about to pack all my stash up for a house move (again) so I can empathise. Hope you get your Blogger probs fixed soon!

Jackie said...
