i have a place again, one all my own, MINE!!

Where do you spend your time?

If you’re like me, you’re used to having most of your time spent in front of a desk.

Granted, a lot of the time is computer-bound, but I was used to all the other time spent with paperwork and other work.

In recent days we’ve moved our girls’ upstairs to a bedroom together, and moved an office downstairs.


I haven’t seen my desk in eight months.  I used to do my most important things there.

I have it back!!

My desk.  An office.  The many files and folders.

It’s as though another notch slipped home.

No, it’s not in the same place. And it’s not set up the same.

But my husband told me that he would move my office downstairs months ago.  I told him there wasn’t a need yet. There wasn’t then.

But having it now makes me feel more whole.  Now it can make me more organized.

Having an office, a place, is having a little of myself again.

    Virginia Woolf said that every woman needs a room of their own. And you have yours back! I personally also have a couch. It is often the only tidy spot in my entire house and I feel like it’s this tiny island of tranquility in the entropy of my life.

    I LOVE this! Having a spot made just for you is always so comforting. Knowing it is always there when you need it. So glad to hear you have that part of you again.

    Aw, yay. I hope your desk has a nice, soft little lamp for you to sit by and have some tea while you go about your officey stuff.

    The kitchen is where I tend to live, but my favorite spot of all the clothes line, I know I’m weird to like hanging the laundry but the kids leave me be for a few mintues and that is my relaxing time!
