In celebration of the first day of the new year, I continued Operation Shredder, the arduous task of cleaning my desk area. While Chloe and Papa were at the movies to see “Tron,” Sophie and I went shopping. First to buy Sophie some hot new sneakers to wear to her inaugural tennis class tomorrow, then to the Container Store to buy storage stuff for aforesaid Operation Shredder which, I am happy to report, is now complete.
Chloe has just announced her own operation. Operation CUB (aka Clean Up Books). Chloe has at least 150 books in her room. She has started to categorize by genre and alphabetize by author within genre. In addition to the customary genres, she will have sections for “lend to Sophie,” “books still to be read” and “bad books.” Luckily, the number of books in the latter category will be limited indeed. She has her work cut out for her.
Will she accomplish her mission by the end of the day tomorrow? Or will Operation CUB drag into 2012? The race is on…and we shall provide periodic updates to our loyal readers, because we know that you’ll be waiting with bated breath to find out how long it takes her to classify her library.
