This bookcase is currently a major source of anxiety for me. Its (unstyled) shelves are filled with books I haven’t referenced in years, random papers to be filed, and swag accumulated from blogging conferences. Once they’re organized, the entire bookcase needs to be relocated* because that’s the wall in the guest room/home office/new nursery where the baby’s crib needs to go.
The crib that Levi is still using.
Because I haven’t made any headway on transitioning his nursery into a big boy room.
My goal for this three-day weekend is to attack the bookcase shelf-by-shelf, tossing as much as possible and finding a new home for whatever I decide to keep. I feel encouraged that I can actually accomplish this project because my parents will be in town, and they can occupy Levi so I can stay focused. Also, my mom gets giddy at the idea of organizing anything and would be more than happy to
take charge assist me with the project.
