And the Purge goes on

Homeschooling affords you the wonderful opportunity to accumulate tons of paper. I can safely say that we have probably housed one small forest in the form of school papers over the last 7 years. (Have I been homeschooling that long? Wow!)

I rarely work on Sundays but yesterday afternoon for whatever reason I thought it would be a good idea to re organize the previously organized shelf in the hallway. The bottom shelf had tons of what I like to call archivals aka portfolios waiting to happen. So what I did was begin the sort and purge process. I made a pile of books that I probably would not use-ever and I pile of old papers that needed a new home in a landfill somewhere. To make a long story short I managed to overstuff a 13 gallon kitchen garbage bag with papers, had Dolly and Noahkeem shred a number of unnecessaries for me and managed to find a CD that someone burned for Cookie about 6 years ago.

I was certain that I would find an unspent dollar bill mixed in with the archives but, no such luck; and so, the purge goes on.
