The home office has temporarily moved. My older son, Vito, has chicken pox, and since my desk used to be inside the boys’ room, I had to move out for the meantime because I’m trying to separate the little one so he doesn’t catch it.
I know chicken pox is like a rite of passage for kids, but I’m still hoping the vaccine will work on the younger one and prevent him from getting it altogether. Vito did get the varicella vaccine back when he was 2, but he didn’t get the booster shot. (The doctor said you need 2 shots for the vaccine to be 100% effective.) Since Raoul always wants to play wherever I’m working, the only recourse was to move out of the boys’ room (which is now just Vito’s room). I simply cannot afford to take care of 2 sick boys right now!
Anyway, I moved the desk to the living area. Had to do a bit of rearranging, but I managed to find a place for it. Here’s how my desk looks now:
Working in the living area has its perks though. I feel like it’s a command centre of sorts. 🙂 I’m near everything!
Essentials – the Microsoft comfort mouse, which has saved me from carpal tunnel syndrome. (The Apple wireless mouse is really uncomfortable and heavy, so even if I LOVE how it looks, I had to replace it with this ugly but comfortable one. Oh well, sometimes you have to choose comfort over beauty.) The Intuos tablet is another must-have.
So here is my desk, and yes, that’s me partially seen on the monitor. 🙂 The desk itself is from ScanTeak, which I really love as it’s very sturdy and wide. I’m thinking of painting it white though, because I really want a white desk. The hubby says it would be disrespectful to the wood. What do you think? Should I paint it?
