Progress! Yay!

As I've posted before, I'm rearranging.  Moving furniture.  Paring down the "things"

Well.  I got an area done. 
A very important area.  My computer desk.  I'm giddy.

It was a chore. 
I made sure when I first moved here I'd have a small place for my desktop, and a corner for the laptop.  I had the internet hooked up before we were moved in.  I had given up my big desk and one printer so as not to take too much space.
But I missed my "office" space.  So, now due to the change in circumstances, I have rearranged for my desk.

It's on the opposite side of the room as the little desk I was using.  The cable line for the cable internet was available, but no phone jack. 
It only took Hubby dear 4 days to get around to running that for me.  Lots of cursing, laying on the floor (which was a task all its own considering the 1 dog and 3 cats and their questionable use of the facilities) and rewiring.
It took another hour to untangle and remember which cord went where. 
It took 10 more minutes to figure out, gee, you don't need a phone jack with digital voice service. Der.
And less than a minute for Hubby dear to realize that lying on the questionable floor was a totally unnecessary exercise.

He'll get over it. Eventually.

In the meantime, I'm all happified!  I have my desk, complete with the resident gargoyle and pretty beaded spiders (yes, I'm a wierdo).


  1. Aaron, thank you! I do loves it!

  2. Wow, your desk is so neat. I should take a page from your book!

  3. gigi, of course it's neat. I hadn't used it yet. It will become the object of Hubby dear's scorn in no time at all. As it becomes piled with bills to pay and papers and notes.

    I may not take a pic of it then.

  4. I love the feeling of putting my life in order like that! So calming!

  5. Liz, I have a lot of calming ahead of me. This place is chaos. Except for my desk. I'm drawn to it.
