It's been a joke in the family in our house for the past few years. We have two sons - 27 & 25 now. First off the oldest moved out a few years ago, then moved back when he ran into room mate issues. Then he moved back out. A year later the youngest one moved out and a month later the older one moved back home. Then the older one moved out and the younger one moved back home. We've ever only had a month of being empty-nesters. Well - the youngest one is moving out in a couple of weeks again - so - I have decided that before the oldest one can move back, I'm going to make it so he can't - heh heh. I love my sons dearly but good gracious at their ages I was married with two kids!!! Our house isn't that big and the little birdlings are too big for the nest.
I have decided to turn the spare bedroom downstairs into my own personal romance library! Yes! Finally I will be able to unpack my boxes and boxes and bags and bags of books. When I feel like rereading an old treasure, rather than having to dig through the boxes in the place where spiders dwell, I'll be able to find them on shelves. Ahhhhhhh the joy of it.
We've decided to try and build them. And isn't that a scary thought for this non-handy girl. So - is anyone reading this has built bookshelves (I know Cindy's Bob built some but we aren't doing built in) any suggestions would be most welcome. I have a feeling I'm going to know my Home Depot by the time I'm done.
My sister is even donating a dehumidifier to the cause - and she doesn't read romance!
And alphabetizing - my heart leaps at the thought :)
