Well the bookcases came in today! bookcases? What bookcases? OH did I forget to mention that? See for the past 21 years we have lived with mis-matched bookcases in all sorts of shapes and sizes.... yard sale finds, gifts from my father-in-law, unassembled unfinished types. You get the picture. Well this time we took the plunge and bought 5, dare I say FIVE matching bookcases. They make my heart swoon... (I know who uses words like swoon any more??? apparently I do! words like swoon, beaucoup (pronounced boo-coo, yep nothing like a little bit of redneck french to spice things up.... and to make our boys and/or their friends roll their eyes!! ha ha!) Back to the book cases.... I would love to show you a picture of them assembled and staged in our living room aka "the library" but they are not assembled and I did a bad thing.... I mean really bad!! I lost the charging cable for the camera. It was one of those cases of me putting it somewhere other than where it belonged (the camera bag) but in a place that made so much more sense. Did I mention I get distracted easily? Which sometimes translates into I forget things... Yes you guessed it. I do NOT remember where I put the charger for the camera battery... and the battery is dead. Soooo...... for now a picture of one of the inspirations for the bookcase wall.

(I know this is such a long drawn out process but it will be worth it in the end! I promise... really it will!)
So now I am off to start clearing the area and start assembling bookcases... did I mention there are 5 to assemble? If I start to look dazed and confused PLEASE remind me that this really was a good idea...
