Temporary Workspace

So, I'm working from home because our newly-minted five-year-old has a stomach bug. Not fun. Luckily, I can telecommute. Our painters are here today working on our bedroom (so long Santa Fe-inspired wallpaper!). Our contractor should be here soon to work on the framing in the kitchen and then the flooring folks are set to arrive tomorrow. (We had to postpone the flooring for a few days due to a pipe leak. Don't ask.)

In the meantime, I'm working at our dining room table, which is stacked high with kids' artwork, cookbooks, and my paperwork/electronics, in addition to my centerpieces. I like to think of it as a controlled chaos, if you will, which describes my workspace in general. I know where everything is and how to get to it. It may not be pretty, but I make it work. But, yes, it could use some organizing every now and then.

The mess around the house is getting to me a bit. I don't normally like to clean, but right now I would love to start dusting and picking up the clutter strewn about. I know dust comes with the territory when doing a renovation and our contractor warned us of this. Although, living in the midst of it quickly gets old. I'll stop complaining, though, because progress is being made and you know how much I love progress!

So, I'll look on the bright side. The lighting is good in our dining room, so it's a pleasant place to work. The sun is out today and the temperature is rising. Spring appears to be making an appearance and I welcome its arrival. And, I'm spending time with my little girl, who will hopefully feel better soon.

Have a great weekend everyone! My Kentucky Wildcats play Florida this weekend - last game of the regular season before the SEC tournament and March Madness. Go Cats!

I have been there and totally know the frustrating parts of renovating. Glad you have a sunny place to work at for the time being. And I hope the sweet little birthday girl gets to feeling better soon. It's still birthday week if you ask me!! XO Happy weekend!
