Today I got a lovely package from my grandma and what was inside 2 bags of rice and la la la laaaaaa A CAN OPENER! Ahh I'm so happy! I can actually open up cans now! We also go a package from Eric's grandma that should have been here last week but post offices like to be lazy and not even try to clear up any confusion. It had a few boiling pots and some cooking spoons (what are those even called?) but yeah! now we can actually cook stuff! I'm so happy! No more sink food!

Basically you just put a bowl in the sink filled with whatever and have hot water go around it and just have it sit forever haha

How could you have lived without a can opener? Mystery to me.

I lived without a can opener for a while. It was ugly. I used a hammer and screw driver. Life is so much easier with a can opener.

I would love to send you a house warming gift..I never forget moving in my new home I enjoyed shopping for all kinds of stuff. My daughter just got a package to her new place today for something that I have here that she wanted. I won't say what it is because,it's what I would also send to you. she is very happy with it. They asked me for mine. Can you imagine that well I love mine and use it often and thought they could Just get one for themselves. I now need to wait for her to arrive from work to know if she got it. It' nice to see your settling in ok on your own. Are you home sick at all? Is your mom doing ok with you gone. Ok that is enough for now message me if you want it ok. Take care an just so you know it's red/or black and for the kitchen.

Oh you don't need to do that! haha I am actually not home sick and my mom is doing pretty okay as well. I think with time it will be a little sad but we message each other almost everyday. I didn't message her today because I was filled up to the head with school work but I shall message her twice as much tomorrow. I think she was feeling sick today so it was good she was resting.

Yeah I posted about not having a can opener because we could not afford one. We could not bring any cooking items with us because we had to fly out here with only one suitcase each and one carry on.

I am happy for you! Not having a can opener can be a pain, glad you have one now. =) And not being able to afford things when moving somewhere is so tough-I know that first hand!

It is the worst especially when I had so much and not I'm barely scraping by. Ugh adultness.

That is great that you are so happy over rice and a can opener. I know how it feels not to be able to cook.
