Checking In

October 09, 2012

The craziness continues, but it’s good craziness.

After “sharing” home office space with my husband for three years (translation: I had a desk in there but I was rarely at it because our working styles were not compatible), he moved to his new office in our unused formal living room last week. I’ve spent much of the past few days cleaning and organizing my space and collecting my things from where they were scattered throughout the house. I’ve still got some organizing to do, but at least I know everything is here (somewhere) and I again have a door I can close when I need to.

I took the day yesterday to relieve my horse of his winter coat. (Click here to see what that entails.) Yes, even though it’s still near 90 degrees and humid, Tank was sporting his usual premature wooliness. I’m not quite finished—I have three legs left and some tidying—but he’s much more comfortable. Since he’s now shorn, that means it’s likely a cold front will come through and drop the temps. (Bring it on! I have a horse blanket.)

I expect to have a more “normal” schedule in the next week or so and will get back to more regular posting soon.

So what’s new with you?

  1. Kathy, that is so exciting about your new office! That should help in so many ways.

  2. Good for you for finally getting your own space. I'm sure you'll enjoy that!

    What's new with me? We just put a new pleated shade (actually it was called a cellular shade) in our bedroom - to replace the venetian blind that my cat ruined. He chewed through the cords that go through the slats, so we needed something with no cords!

  3. Kathy--yes, it will. It was my office to start with, and he "barged in" when he started working at home, so I'm doubly happy to have it back.

  4. Cheryl--Silly kitty! What was he thinking?!

    I'm greatly enjoying the calm and quiet in here now that Larry's moved. I can play music now, too, which I really like. Now to sort through the piles of books and papers and put some order into the place!

  5. YAY you!! So pleased you have a "room of your own!"

    Not much new over here. S....l....o...w progress on the hallway and a few other projects, but nothing quite as exciting as having my very own office again after 3 years!

  6. Hey, any progress is progress. You know how long it's taken me to get my office back!
