I have been absolutely worthless today.
Actually if you like the glass half full approach, I have been very supportive of American sports.
In the spirit of doing SOMETHING today, I decided to show you how I am taking care of all the stuff on top of my lockers.
It is very obvious that my school was built in the 70s. We have these accordion style curtains that separate our rooms in horrendous shades of green, yellow, and orange. I am told these colors, in particular the exact colors in our rooms, were very popular in this decade.
Another thing that is very obvious about our building-- not one teacher was consulted in the design. We have zero, zilch, nada storage. Not one closet, shelf, or cabinet is in any of our rooms. Where they thought I would store all my "stuff" I am not sure, but it has forced me to be very creative. There are some teachers that have a neater version of what I have going on (and I plan on showing those pictures one day soon), but I haven't been able to quite figure that method out.
See I am one of those people that hates seeing my stuff.
As you might guess- the above picture gives me nightmares. I truly hate it. No matter how much purging I do, I still need a large majority of this stuff. And believe me (or ask my teammates), I LOVE getting rid of stuff.
On Wendsday I stopped at Hobby Lobby and grabbed 5 yards of fabric. Side note: I am not sure that I know how to drive by that store without stopping.
Next I enlisted the help of one of my sweet teammates to help me sew a hemline, because let's face it, I still haven't mastered much about sewing.
We have wires strung in front of our walls to hang anchor charts from. I hung my new curtain over the wire.
My stuff is gone, or rather, it is hidden!
I know this is not rocket science, but man does it make it feel better to not see that stuff!
Now, all this productivity is making me tired. It is back to the Olympic games for me. I have developed quite a crush on Ryan Lochte, and I must make sure I don't miss any of his races!
