As we unpacked the house, our fourth bedroom became the dumping ground for stuff that couldn’t find a home in any other room, primarily because it was going to be our “office”, and lacked carpet. This past weekend, we finally laid some carpet down, and to do so, we had to take out all the boxes that had collected there over the previous week. This left our den (our primary hang-out spot) such a mess that it was a priority to get into that office again and start to unpack and organize. It was a daunting task, and frankly, I was dreading it.
But it needed to be done, and last night, I started sorting music, and other stuff into piles. And since I don’t yet have a job, I continued chipping away this morning. Almost immediately, I realized I needed something to house my piles. I do have a few desk drawers, but they were no match for my piles of tutoring books, teaching materials, and music. My mom and I popped over to Lowe’s and picked up a Closetmaid 9-cube storage piece, and when I returned home, put it together and put it up, and continued busting it out.
I’m almost done, and truthfully, I am now pretty excited to have my own little space. I did have a desk at the old house, but I never used it because it was in the dark, stinky basement. This one is actually a nice place to hang out, and I like it.
