We are back from the beach. It was SO nice.
About 2 years ago, my sweet in-laws gave us a permanent paid-for time share off the Georgia coast. I love it. It always falls two weeks before I go back to work. So I had a week at the beach, a week to work in my room on my own time (and readjust to life in the real world) and then pre-planning started today.
I've needed to step away and "unplug" - I'm sorry for the long absence! :)
I did go in last week and thought I would share the "progress" I've made. Like many of you, I have to pack up my room so they can haul it all out to wax the floors.
AFTER... (day 1)
I've since purged a kidney table, a file cabinet, a round table and a set of cubbies. I also found "homes" for all of my lamps in the room. I'll take better pictures before Meet and Greet on Thursday.
I've had several emails lately about departmentalizing and I'm working on a post on what makes my partner and I feel successful every year. Before I hit the "publish" button, I wanted to make sure I answered as many of your questions as possible. If you're getting ready to try it at your school or you are just curious, please feel free to leave a question or two in the comments below.
