Still inspired by Marie Kondo's little book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, I decided to go through my stash of costume jewelry. It was everywhere . . . some in an official "jewelry box", some in a junk drawer, some in the bathroom cabinet . . . you get the idea.
I didn't even know what I had.
Here are some tips I learned during the process.

In our childhood home,
this was always just referred to "Daddy's Desk".
Here's how things were usually located at homework time when I was growing up:
Kid #1: "Mom, where's the stapler?"
Mom: "On Daddy's desk".
Kid #2: "I need rubber bands."
Mom: "They're in the top left drawer of Daddy's desk".
Kid #3: "Where is the typewriter paper?" (Yes, we still used typewriters back then!)
Mom: "Look in Daddy's desk, under the Christmas cards with Santa on the front."

Have you seen First Lady Michelle Obama's recent "Gimme Five" work-out video yet?
She's amazing . . .I'm totally impressed.
There's not much difference between Michelle and me really.
We both work out.
The First Lady works out here . . .
And I work out here.

Teachers have LOTs of required paperwork to complete. So does everyone who works. So I came up with a gift idea for colleagues who were retiring that was such a big hit that my supervisor asked me to make them each year for our district's special education retirees.
