Tackling Another Project

messyoffice1450

I’ve grabbed the bull by the horns (so to speak) and I’m actually working on my home office. As you can see from the picture above, I really haven’t cleaned it since my Mother-in-Law went back home. It became, in essence, that room where you hide things when company comes over. In the hot weather we’ve been having I barely came upstairs anyway, so it wasn’t that big a deal. Finally, though, my sense of self respect seems to have resurfaced a bit, and I’m actually typing this from inside said office. It’s not done yet, so you will just have to enjoy the “before” picture above for a while.

But really, that’s not the only reason that I wanted to talk about my office. Those of you who have been around this blog for a while may recall that I have all sorts of little collections about the place. I have also made claims of having quite the bedizened four drawer filing cabinet. So…here you go:

Behold! It is (most of) my magnet collection on the previously mentioned filing cabinet. You see, I try to buy a magnet at every place Koshvader and I travel to. …And if you ask me, we need to travel more often. Also, I would like to draw your attention to something on the left hand side of the picture. In fact, I’ll give you a closer look.

This picture was a gift from a certain someone when I left my last job. This same someone has also recently taken to visiting this blog (which bring me up to, what? 8 readers?)

Oops. It’s getting late, so I should be off to bed. I mean, I met Nelson Mandela in my dream last night, and I’m dying to see what I might dream of next. You understand, right?

    I’ve been doing some home cleaning/organizing projects, too. I did one 3 weeks ago and 1 last weekend. OK, so that’s not very regular, but I am getting things done and that feels great!!

    So, best wishes as you organize your office. I think you’re going to love it.

    Is that a cute basket-purse I’m seeing?

    Hey, your magnet collection is cool!

    HIYA. Did you receive the picture message I sent last night? I think my office rivals yours…!

    “that room where you hide things when company comes over” And here I was thinking that only my family did that. Haha. At the moment my room’s been delegated to that status; doing anything beyond climbing into bed is dangerous.

    (I see Fruits Basket on your cabinet…) I am truly touched you saved my art, and that you have it up there with your magnets. WAFF~ *hugs* I really hope we can meet up once I get settled in Oakland.

    Steph, yep. I think that kind of room is fairly common, actually. :) And just let me know when you are all settled in at Mills.
