Small Success: Mom’s New Office

Thursdays at begin with a look at the past week’s Small Successes!

I’ve been working a little bit at a time to clear out TheKid’s old bedroom. He vacated it when he took over his big brother’s room almost two years ago, and it’s just been sitting there collecting junk ever since.

Sure, it’s small (10×12 or even smaller) but it will work just fine for me to use as an office, and it will do for a guest room in a pinch as well.

I’ve gotten the office part under control, at least. There’s still a bunch of stuff on the bed that I need to clear away, plus the ironing board, but I’m at the point where I can bring my laptop into that room and work. I’ve been working there all week!

That’ll be great this summer when the Street Urchins are hanging around, playing Super Smash Brothers only a few feet from the living room.

Someday I’ll paint it, but right now it’s just nice to have a quiet place to work.

    • Well, I didn’t photograph the other (unfinished) side. But my back is to that while I work, so I don’t notice it. Eventually…

    • Also keep in mind that I had to wait for an office until one of my children grew up, secured gainful employment, and signed a lease on a place of his own.

  1. Having a dedicated office made a huge difference for me working from home. The bed in there is usually covered with stuff. I got it mostly cleaned up yesterday.
