Want to see my desk? Think twice before you answer that. It’s not nearly as exciting as you might think. Plus is likely much messier than you imagined it to be.
See, for years now, my “desk” has been a card table, topped with a tablecloth since the top of the table was all torn up. Am I professional or what? It worked to hold my computer…and as you can see from the scary picture below, it also held piles of messy paperwork.
The piles of papers and notebooks were kinda, sorta organized. But woe to the person who put a non-heavenlyhomemaker piece of paper down on my desk. It would quickly get buried and lost in my mess.
Finally, a few weeks ago, Matt suggested it was time to get me a real desk. Not only would that be much more practical for my work, it would free up our card table to be used for gaming and to fold laundry in the upstairs hallway. Sounded good to me!
Ladies and…well, are there any gentlemen reading this? Introducing my new work space:
It’s just a simple black desk, but it has a drawer and a cabinet to house my
junk files and paperwork. You’ll notice that my desk is placed right in front of a closet door. Who does that? Yeah, we do. It’s the only placement option in our guest room/office right now. Someday maybe we’ll rearrange, but we rarely use that closet, so for now it works.
How long until this desk is covered with papers? Here’s hoping I’ll keep it under control for at least a few days. :)
This Gratituesday, I’m thankful for my office upgrade. What are you thankful for?
