To say my space was over-packed with books and “stuff” would be an understatement. As a writer AND a homeschooler I love have lots of resources at my fingertips. I wanted to take a picture, but it was waaayyyy too messy. So I started cleaning …
Right off I knew I had to find a place for all the books I didn’t need at this moment in time. My best bet, I figured, was to only have current research/homeschooling books in my office. My idea was to get plastic bins and “pack up” what I wasn’t currently using. (It took ten bins!)
Of course, where would I put the bins? My ideas was under my TALL bed. Perfect. The only problem was that there was already stuff underneath it. Mostly sleeping bags and suitcases.
Of course, those things should be in the garage, right?
So … Saturday John and I cleaned out the garage to make room for the sleeping bags and suitcases. (Did I mention it was my Anniversary. What a guy!)
Once those were put away, there was room for the bins of books.
And then ALL the books in my office had to be resorted and organized.
In the end, my office is the cleanest EVER. And … ta-da, finally I had my photo to post on the loop! (See above.)
Of course, if it’s this clean, I just HAD to take more than one photo!
This is a photo with one of the “natives.” I homeschool in the same room where I write. I’m sure he’s doing his work and NOT playing video games.
Cory and Nathan’s spots. They took the photos on the wall.
This is the view from were I sit and write. There is an field behind our house. Those gray bumps in the distance are the Rocky Mountains. You can’t see the peaks because of the clouds.
This is a view of the office from my doorway.
This is a view from the bookshelf of our four chairs. Yes, this is how I write, with three kids within 10 feet of me. And two dogs at my FEET!
Here is the organized bookshelf.
Speaking of dogs …
And here are those two dogs I mentioned. Lilly is a seven-year old “Blue Heeler knocked up a Sheltie.” And Jake is a 5-month old, “Pomeranian slipped through the fence and became friends with a Scottie.”
