How to drag out your unpacking for 8 days, and counting:
Step 1- go on an extended trip with young children.
Step 2- bring back everything you took with you, plus an additional luggage set filled with new clothes and Christmas toys
Step 3- insist on not unloading the toys until you go through the toybox to clear out some old ones
Step 4- Never get around to doing that
Step 5- Decide that you don't want to unpack your clothes into your closet until you clean it out
Step 6- Tear your closet apart
Step 7- Realize that you have too many clothes and not enough hangars
Step 8- Refuse to enter your bedroom until it's so late at night that the only choice you have is to step over it and pretend it isn't there.
It can be difficult to teach. It's an art form, really.
