I have to work tonight so my Mother's Day festivities were done yesterday as a complete surprise. It started with piling me into the car to go to Target after Pokey got home from work yesterday. He decided that I needed a bookcase to put a TV on in the office because he is getting the house wired for whole house DVR playback when he's home on Wednesday! This is so I can watch what I've recorded during the week while I'm working. It gets super quiet from about 10 pm until midnight so I can devote that time to research and I can listen to the shows that don't require my full attention - like American Idol or The Voice - while I do my work instead of having to wait until the next morning where I've been hit with spoilers. Pokey has decided that he would like a bigger TV in the family room - and I agree - so when we upgrade, I'll get the one that is currently out there and Hobbit can have her's - which she graciously and selfless offered to me for use until we do - back. Here is that cozy section of my slowly but surely office redecoration...
|I am debating putting my crafting books or yarn in pretty bins on the last two shelves.|
|The top shelf was super easy - my special treasures from my family (or past work life) that I hold dear.|
|Our old carpet barely fit under the ottoman, now it covers the entire area and it's gorgeous!|
|Look at all the open desk space I have now, which will come in super handy when I get my new desk!|
I hope everyone reading has a fabulous day as well - whether you're a mother yourself, have your mother to celebrate, or you're a daddy pulling double duty. I wish you a day full of love and laughter surrounded by the ones you hold most dear.
