I guess you could call me a "Binder Queen" wanna be. Cindy Rushton has a book entitled Notebooking! Yes! You Can Be a Binder Queen Too!.
I think to qualify as a Binder Queen the binders have to be full! I have been working on sorting, filing, and discarding our papers from this year. I have combined history and science from the last 4 years into 2 notebooks for ds. DD has one of each for the last 3 years.
I’m cleaning off bookshelves trying to be more ruthless about getting rid of old books that we don’t need. For some reason I have a hard time getting rid of my chemical engineering textbooks. Why? What am I going to do with them in the next 10 years that I haven’t done with them in the past 10? Why have I moved these things 4 times? I guess there is some part of me that says if I get rid of the books then I am definitely never going back to work. Like anyone would hire me now after 10 years out of the workforce. The really funny thing is that I have absolutely no desire to go back to work. My whole philosophy of working outside the home has completely shifted in the last 10 years. Anyway, if I homeschool all of my children through high school I have 16 more years to go! Does my reluctance to get rid of my textbooks demonstrate a lack of trust in the Lord for our future provision? I don’t know. I’m still pondering.
