Normally on a Tuesday afternoon, I would be exhausted from teaching all day. But we're on break!! Thursday night, after biology class was over, I started cleaning and organizing our study. It has been driving me crazy, but I just haven't had the time to do anything about it. But now--5 days later, LOL--it is finally clean and organized! I even have some extra space, ready for more books! Of course, I still have some shelves that are over-full, particularly one with all my Latin stuff on it. I haven't figured out a good way to break it up yet.
I went through all our books and put a ton in a box to get rid of. TNT is having their annual used curriculum sale in a few weeks, and I hope to get rid of a lot of stuff there. Many of the books I'm just giving away! I needed more room for all these high school science books I am accumulating at a rapid rate! And I'm ready to give away a lot of curriculum for younger kids. Let's face it--if I haven't used it by now, it is highly unlikely I'm going to start something new and extra now! Still, it can be just a bit discouraging to realize exactly how much curriculum I need to keep since I still have so many kids left to educate.
Now--on to the next messy area. The dreaded "kitchen desk and counter beside the refrigerator". . . Yeah, things have been piling up there for quite a while . . .
