Overhaul.

Yesterday I was feeling kind of paralyzed, and I really didn't know what to do next.

So today I rearranged my entire office.

For those of you who don't know, I work at home most of the time, and when we moved into this house I nabbed the master bedroom as my office. It was hard to figure out where to put the furniture because I have four desks and a table for photography, and of course there's the TV, the cubby-hole rack for papers, and the couch/coffee table. So I set it up in a way that I thought made sense.

I've had some growing dissatisfaction over this, though. First of all, my crafting supplies were in front of a window. Granted, I could put the shade down, but still; too much sunlight was getting in, and it can fade the supplies. Also, once in a while I can't use my aircard for the internet, and if I moved my computer I thought I might be able to get a better lock on the unsecured wireless in the area, just in case I have an issue again.

This morning I took a good hard look at the room, and rearranged everything in my head. And then I thought, "Oh, I'll do it later." But it got more and more strident, this desire to move everything around, and in the early afternoon I just started moving things. I scrapped my original idea and went with a modified idea. The crafting desk has become the bill/printer desk, my computer desk has joined it, so now I have a window in front of me when I work on the computer, which is kind of nice. And the crafting desk and supply rack are now against the other wall.

Even better, the bill desk, which was larger and had more shelves, has become the crafting desk. So now I have all this space and I can actually spread out my crafting stuff. And I think it's kind of a good sign, like I'm taking it more seriously and I really want to make a go at it. I hope.

So far I'm liking the new arrangement, except the TV is partially blocked by a chair so we have to move it when we sit down to watch Incredible Hulk each night. And the old crafting desk is not really big enough for the three printers and the scanner.

That's okay, though. I think the new advantages outweigh the cons.
