The Box Challenge: Days 19, 20, and 21

Last three boxes before I have to fit boxes into my teaching schedule. Not looking forward to it, but its got to be done and I could use some discipline in my evenings.



Box #19 was a nightmare. It contained three years of paper that we had accumulated since we moved in! It was everything from 2 year old bills, junkmail, and credit card offers to pay stubs, invoices, and lumberyard bills. It took me an hour and a half to do this one box. It was awful. Thankfully I had my trusty Septimus Heap Book 5: Syren audiobook to keep my mind off the awfulness of the situation.

I am a total sucker for young adult fantasy. The Septimus Heap books have been keeping me company for the last month as I road tripped, painted, and unpacked boxes. I'm a big fan of audiobooks. They do all the voices! I am also reading (as opposed to listening to) the Madeline L'Engle Murphy/O'Keefe series and loving them. I think young adult books are just transporting in a way that adult fiction can often not. Young adult books still cultivate the imagination by believing in peace, love, and justice. At least the ones I read do. I feel giddy just thinking about it.

Box #20 & #21 were more books. Lots of those.
