It put a major damper on my normal nap time routine - sit on the couch and eat cookies while watching DVR'd episodes of Teen Mom and Donna Decorates Dallas. And I actually had to do something productive to keep from going crazy while the boys napped.
What?! Work!! EEK!
I decided to dig into my office...or what will be my office.
Here it is on the day we moved in.
|Hey! It looks like no one lives here!|
It's a little, square room off of the living room.
It (conveniently) has french doors, which are really necesarry because it's become a dumping ground while we've settled in.
|Oh, wait. People do live here, hoarders, obviously.|
So I got to work.
Removed the major stuff that was going into storage.
The pile of boxes (because all of my friends just had babies! squee!).
And started sorting through stuff.
|oohh...sorting baskets...i loves them|
About halfway through I almost gave up.
|halfway there...just keep going!|
Back to work.
This is clean enough.
Clean enough to set up this little corner!
That's the garage sale chair I scored for $25! And a little GW shelf that I plan on painting ($14), complete with my Missoni tote.
And...do you see it?

Amazing ceramic gnome lamp, courtesy of my MIL, who found him at an estate sale and knew I had to have him :)
Thanks Rita!!! He looks pretty happy here, I think we will keep him :)
I still have work to do in my office.
But for now it works, I can blog in here, pay bills, hide from screaming children.
You know, all of the important stuff.
And I have a gnome.
And really, that's the most important part.
