Today's prompt was to share our computer space, so we can "see" each other as we share our stories. (I had my trusty assistant sit in for me in this shot. ) This is about as clean as it gets. Artwork from Emma is everywhere. Bills and assorted paperwork in the holder thingies. Water glass for me, juice cup for my assistant. Towel, ready to clean up spills from the water glass or juice cup. Dust on the scanner. My view of the backyard, so I can watch the kids outside, yet remain in the air conditioning (yes, I am a wimp). What you don't see is that my desk is squeezed into a corner of the playroom. That's why I'm ALWAYS on it, I get to play while the kids play or watch videos!
Now don't get excited, my house is not big. We decided that we really didn't need a formal dining room so we converted it into a playroom. Because, you know, my children eating their meals over carpet is SUCH a great idea! The size of the room is okay, but since it opens off the living room and is in direct sight of the front door, I had to be creative in my arrangement of furniture and toys. I really didn't want guests to walk in and immediately see overflowing toy bins or the mountain of clutter that is (normally) my desk. So both those things are stuck in corners and the only thing visible from the other room is our ugly old loveseat. I can deal with that.
Well, that was a whole bunch of ramble. If you've made it this far, thanks for sticking with me! I'll try to be more poetic tomorrow. The prompt for Wednesday is a great one!
