My Library - The Before Pics (so you know what I'm working with here!)

Oh, goodness.  My library is a hot mess.

Or perhaps I should say it was left a hot mess.

The former librarian retired in June of last year, and then there were two subs in for me while I was on leave.  I don't blame the subs for not cleaning anything up; after all, they knew their jobs were not permanent. However, I think the former librarian may have been a hoarder.

I'm serious.  It's bad.

Take a look for yourself... (and sorry for some of the fuzzy pics!)














I have been working hours and hours each day to get things cleaned up and straightened out.  I like that saying about "a place for everything and everything in its place."  I hate clutter and stuff that serves no purpose.

So basically what's happening is I'm throwing a lot away and finding places for the things I have to keep (or things at least I think I need to keep).

It's been exhausting.  It feels like when we first moved into our house.  (We moved in in June of 2008 -- the same month we were married -- and, being teachers and having the summer off, we worked our butts off to paint and redo pretty much everything.  It was like Groundhog Day.  Wake up, paint, work, eat, paint some more, work some more, eat, paint more, go to sleep, and do it all again the next day.  It felt never-ending.)

That's how these library preparations are making me feel.  But I can't start the school year with a disheveled workspace.  I just can't.

So I'll be cleaning up most of this week in there as well and probably some of next week, too.  I hate wasting the end of my summer doing this, but it desperately needs it.

I'll have after pictures to share with you, of course, though it could be a while.  Stay tuned!

Oh, and happy Tuesday.  I'll be celebrating later tonight with a margarita and tacos.
Because, after all...

  5. Please i want you all to read this amazing testimony very carefully is about how i save my marriage and get my husband back today, My name is Becky Miller , I live in Los Angeles, California, I'm happily married to a lovely and caring husband ,with three kids. A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce.he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{bravespellcaster@gmail.com}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past seven 9 months,gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website { http://lovespelldrbrave.weebly.com/. } if you have any problem contact Dr Brave ,{ bravespellcaster@gmail.com }, thanks you Dr Brave, i will always be testifying about your good work.
