Straightening Up the Apartment While Myunghee’s in Texas

While Myunghee's on her annual green card run to the US this week, I figured I'd get things a bit more organized around here.


In the process, the place got really messy.


Even on day two, there was still a big pile in the middle of the living room floor.


But along the way, I did find 21 bottles of shampoo.


And 15 umbrellas!


PLUS, an incredibly moldy container of "gochujang".


I moved the "for disposal" stuff over to my office for a second consideration later (wishing we had garage sales in Korea…)


The garbage for recycling tomorrow is piled up outside the front door. (I've already thrown away one large taxed trash bag and a recyclables box at the office!)


So that about 25 hours into the job, the apartment now looks like this.


An even better thing is that the view is just as nice after opening the cabinets and doors.


Since Myunghee never checks her Facebook page, she won't have a clue about this until she arrives back in Korea on Monday… (I'm sure nobody in the family will tell her in advance.)
