kids today . . .

You’ve heard it. Older people (older than ME, of course), talking about how undisciplined kids are today.

umm hmm.

In case you don’t feel like zooming in on the first photo, the 1953 library book plate reads:

PUPILS MUST NOT WRITE ON OR MARK ANY PAGE OF THIS TEXTBOOK.

And THIS is why it takes me so long to purge excess stuff from my house. I get a little distracted.

Years ago, I bought old books for decorating purposes. I didn’t really care about the title or author, I just wanted vintage books on the shelf. I’m over it. I’m purging. I kept the titles and authors which interest me, but this is one that didn’t. Well, it doesn’t NOW. I’m finished looking at it, so I’ll pass it on to someone else now. Along with all this stuff:

Except the cat. I’m keeping the cat.

  1. Oh, I was on the purging bandwagon today. It felt wonderful. The closet, the junk drawers, the boys unwanted toys–a great way to start 2009. Now, I need to keep it up.

  2. One year ago on January first, I turned all the hangers in my closet backwards. I can’t wait to go through my closet tomorrow (well, today now!)and get rid of everything I haven’t worn in a year! So ready to purge and excited to start 2009 off with the same neat system!

  3. As I teacher, I love that!! 🙂
    BTW, I also went through the vintage book thing……I have kept a few, but also got rid of lots of them.
    Happy Organizing!
