I am getting crazy jittery for no real reason other than it’s apparently a fun way for my brain to say, “Hey!! Don’t you want to stay up all night?!?!?!?” I honestly hate having Spaz Brain, but at least I am getting things done.
We are prepping to move — whee!! My dad’s advice is to pack up one room at a time rather than tackling several rooms at once. I think starting with our book collection is a good idea. That frees up shelves to be dusted and broken down and then voila, we have more space to sort items and store boxes.
I bought a bunch of book boxes today and have successfully packed up two boxes. I’ve also made our coffee table the home to all the programming books from the two bookshelves. That’s A LOT of books (51 so far) and the hubby is the only one who can sort them out as they’re his. I’m proud of my progress, but it’s pretty middling considering what’s left on the shelves. In all fairness the shelves were never organized so now there are piles of books. Currently coalescing are”nerd books” (i.e. The Klingon Dictionary, a book about Star Wars, several Hellboy comics and a book about Star Trek), scifi/fantasy authors, language books, textbooks, comedy, and some fiction.
Tomorrow I will bring home my books from work that I want to keep (The ArcGIS 9.2 book I have isn’t going to stick around much longer) and get those shoved in a box. Some day books on British plants and birds will come in handy!!
The books are calling. . .
