Well here is the new bookcase wall. I tried to find a picture of what it looked like before but I can't find it right now. In August of 2011 we painted and did the room over for Isabella. So the walls are pink and we did the decal flower/bug stickers. It had a bookcase on this wall, it was 24" tall and 40" long and was over backed with kid books, we have bookcases everywhere that are overflowing. Some of them were packed 2 deep. Time for a change.
We bought Billy bookcases from IKEA and put them together on Sunday, today we restocked the shelves. Kid books on the lower levels, fiction on the left, non fiction in the center and on the right we have our Catholic books, lots of books. It's amazing what you find when you empty the old bookcases to rearrange. I found we now own duplicates of some books (because when we needed them they couldn't be found) and sometimes the books have no redemptive value. We threw a way a few that were beat up, and have a large bag to donate to the book sale at church.
The small bookcase that was in this room has been relocated to my sewing room! Now I have more storage for craft books and magazines.
I hope to do more organizational things in the coming weeks, but we are on the big push to get our 2nd quarter of homeschool done too.
I have been off my exercise routine for a while now. I was taking Aleve for my joints and I had an allergic reaction to it. My legs have a horrid rash and it's painful. But I hope to be back to active life in a few days. My guess is that is also why I have felt so down and lethargic, I have never taken this med before but someone I know said it really worked for them so I gave it a try.
