I'm doing a little late summer cleaning and organizing around here, and last night I had a pretty major breakthrough. I was finally able to pry the husband's fingers off his old school books! I'm not sure why he felt the need to keep them all these years, although I guess that a book on Elementary Differential Equations could come in handy when you find yourself having trouble sleeping.
It took a tiny bit of convincing, but he finally agreed that we really don't need to keep these for Lachlan (!). Our life is now about 25 pounds lighter.
(Yes, that's right. He had two copies of the same calculus book...)
