My New Workspace

Yes, having a second baby meant I got booted out of my old office. Hubby and I used to have separate work spaces, which was nice because hubby sometimes works on film editing and that can be noisy. However, we no longer have room for separate work spaces, so I have moved downstairs into our combined office.

Hubby used to have a very old Mac at this desk, but it was time to let it move on.  Most of the toys on the shelf are still his, as are the tapes.  It's been kind of fun getting everything reorganized, but it's also been nice that I've been able to do it at a leisurely pace.  The saddest thing is that this isn't going to be very comfortable in the winter since the basement gets really cold.  *sigh*  The things we do for our children.  I'll just have to drink lots of tea.

Maternity leave ends tomorrow!  And this is where the magic will happen.

The things we do. :)

Like, purchasing a child's sleeping back so I can use it in my computer chair whle I write, because MY basement is cold in the winter? :)

Like, user sound-blocking gamers headphones so I don't have to listen to hubby raid-leading on WoW while I'm trying to write? :)

There are tricks to making it work. You'll figure them out.

That's hilarious Dawn! I may have to consider borrowing my son's Buzz Lightyear sleeping bag this winter, if it gets to be that cold. :)

Hm. Don't you think a writer's lair needs a roaring fireplace or perhaps a pot belly stove for those cold winter nights? That's the problem with modern writing--there's no waste scrip to burn for warmth. Heating up your tea on a usb mug-warmer just isn't romantic.
