Keeping It Real

For those of you who only imagine me with a pristine house of quiet, book-reading children (bwa-ha-ha-ha!!!!!!!!), I thought I should swallow my pride and show you where all of my lesson planning, photo editing, and blogging has been happening lately. I won’t even make excuses for why it looks like this.

Messy-Office

I have a bunch of administrative/planning/organizational tasks to tackle this week, and this space wasn’t working for me. I put off the other tasks and tackled my office instead. Which led to book re-organization and all sorts of stuff. I still have some piles to deal with (and no-way-no-how am I showing you pictures of the rest of the house), but I’m able to breathe again.

Office-Library

I still have to deal with the box/green tote/basket pile, but not today. The stack of books on the chair needs to find a new home—not in this one. Anyone want some books? Oh, and I have a giraffe and Raggedy Anne that were left during the open house in April. Anyone want to claim them? My desk still needs some help.

Office

I rearranged a bunch on this bookshelf:

School-Bookshelf-#2

And on this one:

School-Bookshelf

I think I’m now ready to wrap up the end of this school year and get ready for the next!! Medieval and Early Renaissance, anyone?

Heidi, that is awesome! I bet you'll sleep well tonight. Organizing is so exhausting.

An incredible job, Heidi. Wow!! Grandpa says congratulations also. Unfortunately I have several places in our house that need some work but I'd rather work outside in the garden so other places will just have to wait. That must be a wonderful feeling to have that all under control, at least for the time being. Grandma

I think many of us can relate! Spring always gets so busy, but we plug on full speed with homeschooling so we can actually get a summer break. The result is that in the meantime the house always falls apart. I can barely walk through my school room or my master bedroom right now! So I just wanted to congratulate you on a great organization project and thank you for helping motivate me as I figure out which room in my house to tackle today. ; )

Yep! Ready to purge the school room and plan for next year. So glad to be done with Ancients again!
