So, on those nights I was still on the computer, he would have to contend with clacking keys and the warm glow of the computer screen. I would have to contend with squinting my eyes to type in said warm glow of the computer screen.
Last year we completely remodeled our walk-in closet. Out intention was to move the computer in there, but other things got in the way. Finally we have done it! We got a new computer table that fits better into the space that the old, icky one would have, got a new office chair, and a new lateral file cabinet, which appears as though it will hold monumental amounts of papers (and won't tip over onto our feet like the old one).
I got some organizers: pencil cup, paper clip cup, and a multi-storage...thing (seen to the left of the monitor). I also purged and purged. I got rid of so much unnecessary junk, such as CD's for printers we haven't owned for years, old papers stacked on and around the desk, and a lot of dust. I am in the process of sorting and purging all of the files. Some are neatly in their new home; the rest are on the floor of my room (must not get overwhelmed, must not get overwhelmed), because I wanted that old piece of junk to go out with this week's garbage - buh-bye!
Anyway, here it is:
