These pictures are from Wednesday and I meant to post them YESTERDAY because yesterday was a magical day where I got out of my domestic cage and actually got to WORK IN MY OFFICE which was amazing and lovely and grown up, and I DO have a room of my own, but it is not in my house, and that's OK. But, you guys, I couldn't post them because I cleaned out my office and it was a DREAM COME TRUE.
I threw away 5 large Hefty bags full of just TRASH that has been accumulating n my desk drawers, file cabinets, and credenza for 8 YEARS. Also! My credenza! A big hulking metal thing full of LITERAL GARBAGE! I cleaned it out enough to move it and hauled it across my office so I could put my table facing the windows because my table is the perfect place to write, especially now with a view!
I also boxed up a huge box of stuff to be destroyed/shredded and filled a giant hallway recycling bin with paper of all manner. It was lovely.
To my delight, I found a broom in the copy room, and I swept my office floor for the first time in actual years Then! The best part! I worked on my picture walls that have remained unchained since 2010. I am going to cover every damn space of my office walls with gummed-on photos--like a real-life Instagram feed. And I am going to hang up some of my subversive cross-stitches. GOALS. I have them.
(I also had meetings and TA interviews, so it wasn't all housework and picture arranging)
But, anyway, my pictures.
Cooper is going to for-real KINDERGARTEN in September, so I ordered him a lunch box that he very seriously customized (color of the carrier and water bottle, style of the magnets), and he was thrilled with it when it arrived.
This text stream between Harry and my brother slays me. The kids do not understand yo mama jokes at all, to hilarious effect.
Here's the wall over my desk:
