The Desk

Friday, I tackled putting together the 250 pound desk I'm now writing from. Since it is upright and supporting the things I have on it, I guess I did OK putting it together. I came away with several new bruises, a smashed toe and a gash on my leg, but I still consider it a victory.

The desk started like this:

And 12 hours later, I had this:

And I have to say I absolutely love it. It's going to take me a while to organize all my "stuff" in and on it, but I've already discovered it's the perfect place to blog from.
 I feel a bit like Carrie Bradshaw, writing while I look out my window. Except I'm not writing about sex. And there is no hot guy who might throw stones at my window to get my attention . . . but there is that potential . . .

In other news, I think the cats have finally accepted that this is home as they have stopped pooping just outside their litter box. Silly, jerkface cats . . .


  1. Is that a Coke Slurpee?

    The desk looks great! It looks like you put it in the corner of the Living Room instead of losing the second bedroom to an "office"? Good idea! How will you use that bedroom?

  2. Oh man, a Coke Slurpee sounds good - but that was a Sbux iced quad skinny carmel latte. (Good heavens, that order is so pretentious!)

    The desk did end up in the 2nd bedroom, which I'm officially calling an "office." In the office I have a hide-a-chair that pulls out into a twin bed, so it can double as a guest room. There is so much space and it works perfectly! I have not posted any living room/kitchen pictures (it's one gigantic room!) as I'm still figuring out if I like the layout of furniture.
