Thinky thoughts on the ROUS in my bedroom

Immediately before noticing the wee beastie I took a basket of clean laundry Joe just brought in from the garage, and dropped it on the floor. I then grabbed  something off my dresser and turned around and saw the wee thing.

He must of been in the laundry. And since Joe just pulled the laundry out of the dryer...the poor beastie must of been IN the laundry.

So he got tumbled dry on high with little girl clothes. No wonder he looked so sickly. Can you imagine how dizzy he was?

Needless to say, we are redoing THAT particular load of laundry. And a trip to OSH is scheduled today to get a cover for the dryer outlet. Must of crawled in from the outside.

Purge 2012

Is still ongoing, but slower.

I'm puttering around the office. I brought home from 3 weeks of school a large canvas bag of books. And a glockenspiel. And a couple of candles. But anyway...

I have NO room to put any of these books away anywhere. My to read shelf is already full. Time to clean out some books.

I pulled some out that could immediately be just given away, I've pulled others that need to be sold. The books, although not exceedingly valuable, are in demand as used books, and hey, I could use the money. I found out that there's a Waldorf Book I own two copies of that is out of print and is in demand on Amazon and the starting prices on the book are currently over $140.00. I definitely want to sell that one, but I'll probably want to just sell it for a little more than what I got for it. Also found out that one of the kids comic books is going used for over $100...may try to convince child to try and sell it so he can buy more comic books.

Anyway. I want a book truck to do this properly, but I don't have one, so I can't. My plan is to start pulling out a shelf at a time and weeding it.

Man I have a LOT of books. I wish a good Anthroposophical library was closer then I wouldn't need to buy so many.

I also have a shelf double stacked of Kid Vid DVDs. Definitely need to go through that shelf and sell off what we don't watch anymore or frankly don't want my kids watching anymore.

In all, its going.
