In a great cloud of fumes, the old green felt squares were removed from the floor, and nice new tan rolled carpet was installed. I had to totally empty my office. Lots of things got shipped out. Lots of paper got recycled. Dishes went home. And there was much reassessment of what I needed to have and what I didn't.
Mostly put back together. My book case is filled. I have a mostly empty desk on which to deposit my take-home bag, hole-punches and various other things. I can actually get to my printer. My main desk is fairly clear of debris, pencils and pens and rulers and scissors in an actual pencil holder. I still need to hang my picture up and put that box of tapes away in the library, but essentially, I'm done.
I took out that little metal table and am making my file cabinet do double duty as a tv stand. I got rid of THREE office chairs. I still have my wooden chair (fondly referred to by the rest of the station as the "electric chair", and a real office chair still in a box that I need to build.
My office is spacious and comfortable, and much more visitor friendly. Usually those two doors are both standing open and people use my office as a pass through. It's how I get to see everyone.
I also replaced my lightbulbs with energy efficient bulbs. They're the daylight kind, which actually doesn't really work in my room - it makes it appear that my office is an aquarium. It's not too bad when the overheads are on though. I think the two different kinds of light balance out. But my boss wants me to get some red-corrected bulbs. He doesn't care for the aquarium look...
There is so much more to do!!! My life is a mess in the pantry, in the kitchen cabinets, in the junk closet and in the garage! But I think I'm going to take a week off and recover from birthday parties, carpeting and various other endeavors. Tune in next week for the next MY LIFE IS A MESS challenge!
