The untidiness of my home desk space remains the bane of my existence, however, it isn’t entirely my fault. Since Hubby has been home more often, he has settled into daily occupations of my laptop and invades the space that was once my sacred den. The once organized entity has now been overtaken with papers, hats, random books, notes and nasty sports memorabilia for which I care nothing for.
What the hell happened to my desk?! I try to clean it up and organize it only for it to return to its unnatural messy state. I try to hide away the sports caps and the random papers only to see them re-emerge following my day at work. I tidy up the random notes for them only to be replaced with more random notes that have nothing to do with me.
I’m thinking of getting a new desk and putting it in a secret location so that no one can find it. That way, I can relocate my laptop and MY papers and MY books minus the sports caps and flyers and settle in to MY TIDY NEAT SPACE. Better yet, buy an old desk and re-purpose it. I could sand it down and paint it a pretty colour. I could have a clean organized place for each one of my books and notebooks, I could have file containers and a holder for all of my nice pens. I could even have a nice vase of flowers….ahhh….
I know, right? Funny. That is never going to happen simply because I have no ‘secret space’ and in fact, I have no ‘space’ at all. There is not one room or iota of a wall available for me to occupy unless I kick a daughter or son to the curb. And overtake their room. And make it into a home office…..sayyy….
That is a great idea, minus the ‘kicking a daughter or son to the curb’ part, because I’M NOT AN ASSHOLE PARENT.
If I WAS AN ASSHOLE PARENT, I would have a nice shiny new desk, in a nice shiny new room with painted walls the colour I like and with organizational files and a pretty lamp and a nice comfy chair and flowers in the corner and shelves with my books…..
WHY AM I NOT AN ASSHOLE PARENT?!
Maybe we can get someone to BUILD ME A ROOM. Somewhere. Not in the basement though.
I’ll see if the attic is available….
In the mean time, I’ll be playing ‘search for the missing hats’ with Hubby.
I’ll be in the attic if anyone is looking for me.
