Stuff It

Our stuff is here! Our stuff is here! I could scream it from a mountain top if there was one nearby.

Stuff including our festival posters and record collection and THE most comfortable bed on the planet. We’ve been sleeping on the fold-out couch for two weeks and my aging back can’t take it anymore. (Please note that it was a fun camp-out for the first few days, but two weeks is too long. So, guests, plan accordingly.)

Oh, and we get real food again! Our kitchen stuff is here now so we’re no longer limited to home cooked meals that have to: 1 – be cooked in the oven; 2 – come in their own oven-safe package or don’t require any; and 3 – can be eaten without a bowl/plate and with plastic utencils. So we were pretty much left eating pizza, lasagna and other finger-foods. The experience did point us to MexiGo, a pretty decent Mexican take-home (not really take out, you have to cook it yourself) that CheeseWeb (thanks!) informed us about. Yum, prooobably going to be one of our favorites over here.

We had heard from lots of other expats that when your delivery comes in, the movers have this crane that they can lift your things through your window. We were super excited to see our boxes come in this way. But no such luck. The movers climbed the stairs the old fashioned way…bummer.

  1. Welcome to Brussels and you’re welcome for the Mexigo tip. So glad we could help! If you have any questions about life in Brussels, don’t hesitate to contact me. Enjoy the ride!

  2. I do remember the feeling of joy when we got our own stuff though we didn’t ship much as we are renting a furnished apartment in Paris but the kitchen tools were welcome as what was provided in the apartment wasn’t very good… especially the knifes as none of them had any bite to them. It was also great to have some personal stuff around us to make us feel at home. Good luck with the unpacking and making your apartment your own.

  3. Well now the fun begins…..unpacking was at the top of my list of thing I hate about moving…..still have boxes from 6 years ago when we moved back to LA…..definitely not anything we need…but I would have to unpack them to find out what’s in them….so they are on a shelf in our store room gathering dust. I have no doubt that you will have all that “stuff” squared away in no time.

    • Haha how funny! I think it’s safe to say those boxes aren’t necessary! We have zero storage here so it makes us decide what ‘stuff’ is really important to us! Kinda nice..

      • I remember when I had to have a place for everything and everything in it’s place…those days, however, are gone forever. LOL Have fun with your boxes. Years from now, you’ll look back and wonder where you got all the energy and how you accomplished everything you did…..It’s called youth!

    Congrats to officially having all your stuff and being able to cook home-cooked meals! After lots of traveling, I always want to cook and enjoy delicious home cooked meals, so I know take out and prepackaged meals gets old. quick.

    Happy settling in : )
