After I finished painting the trim around the new floors in my office, S and I moved my furniture back into place. I thought about moving my desk to the "play" side of the room for a change, but it would mean blocking a window since my desk is higher than the windowsill. I'm really not a fan of blocking windows, so we just put everything back where it came from.
While we were at it, I mucked out a bunch of files that have built up over the past year and generally cleaned house in here. Who ignores their to-do pile for a full year? Might be time to request baby M's birth certificate now, no? Probably too late to submit an insurance claim for last fall's flu shot though.
And here it is, my relatively tidy work area with new hardwood floors. We had to move the orchid table to this side of the room so I can block baby M from pulling up and sharpening his nails on the terracotta pots.
Angela Adams carpet to my Christmas wishlist. I'm pretty sure it's going to remain just that, a wish. S said they have carpets with "girly" colors in Bahrain that he could bring home. Girly colors like burgundy and dark green. Whatevs, S, burgundy is not girly. For once I wish he'd be all, "let's go carpet shopping in Portland, Maine!" Instead of, "I'm going carpet shopping in Bahrain" and I'm all "you'd better be shopping for yo' momma, buddy."
But all joking aside, I do like the way the carpet looks in here. Especially when I'm enjoying a fine scotch and smoking cigars on a Wednesday afternoon. While sitting on my giant purple ball.
