Today was one of the first truly nice (and warm) days of the spring here in northcentral PA. It's hard to believe given today's 70 degree temperatures and bright blue skies, but it was only a week ago that I was dealing with snow!
Hopefully the snow is gone until next winter...and with the warm weather comes the end of the school semester. My college always goes back to school right after New Year's so this coming week is our final week of regular classes. The week after is Final Exam week and then we are done - and so while I spent a good chunk of this glorious Saturday inside grading and preparing lessons, I have to admit that my mind has already begun to wander off to summertime thoughts!
And of what am I thinking about? Well, one of my projects for this summer is this:
That's a table that's been in my basement (man cave) since I moved into my house a year and a half ago. In that time, it's become completely covered with stacks and stacks of cards...and it's high time that I do something about it.
If nothing else, this post will serve as a bit of a benchmark for me. I am cautiously optimistic that by the time the semester starts back up in the fall that I'll have made substantial progress on this mess. I'm also a realist - I highly doubt I'll get the entire table's worth of cards sorted and filed away...but I do need to make some decent progress here.
What are your card related summer projects? Do you have a table that looks like mine?
