For a while now I’ve been meaning to pack up my office, convert it into an extra bedroom, and change the formal dining are into an office space. It’s been on my million long list of “to do’s” for quite some time. I haven’t ever gotten around to it because there is always something more important.
Well, yesterday we started the conversion process. I packed up my office/craft area and bought a desk for the new office space. Today I relocated all my electronic equipment (phew!) and will sweep and mop the old office before we move a bed into that room.
Meanwhile, I’m not sure how I like the new space. My new desk digs into my wrists while I type, my mouse grits across the desk surface (what is that about?) and because of the cord situation the printer is in my navigation area for my right hand. I can tell that I’m going to have to work on a few things before this new office area feels like “home.”
Add to all that, this moving has kicked up dust I never new existed. My poor DFD5 (here as a respite placement) has gotten her pretty white socks all gross with dust and dirt. And her right knee (which she drags around as she scoots) looks like it could use a serious bath. LOL.
I know, I know. It sounds like I’m whining. I promise I am only sort of whining.
Truly there are some real advantages to this new set up. I have better desk space for both computers. I have better storage for cords and the computer consoles and once the conversion is complete I’ll have a FANTASTICALLY organized library and craft area. Not to mention, we’ll have a fourth bedroom again!
