jealousofstars: (Disney Faeries - Vidia)
A few days ago my husband got the itch to move some furniture around. I call it playing HGTV, because that channel is full of home renovation and make-over shows.

He did most of his HGTVing in our bedroom, but he also did a little bit in the dining room area, Previously, my desk allowed me to peek into the kitchen. Seeing dirty dishes always distracts me from writing, but closing the kitchen door was not an option because Soba needs the access to his litter box in the laundry room.

So my desk was pushed to the other wall and the dining room table was moved closer to the kitchen. The kitchen is now to my back and if I want, I can peek down the hall and have a pretty good view of my daughter's bedroom. No more messy kitchen distractions. I also now have a bigger wall on which to hang things... the new dry erase boards I may or may not have bought today.

Confession: I bought three.

I couldn't help myself! I loooove dry erase boards.

Several years ago, a friend of mine bought me a weekly one with a cork board. I have that one in the kitchen and I use it for weekly meal planning.

One of the three I bought today was a small one for Cupcake to play with. The other two are hanging above my desk and they are glorious.

One is a big one that currently just reads: YOU SHOULD BE WRITING! because a) I am incapable of leaving a white board blank and b) if I am at my desk, chances are very high that I should be writing.

The other is a monthly one that is semi color-coded. It came with these nifty hanging pens and though the example on the package was that each member of the family have their own color, this white board is just for me, so I've color coded it for family stuff (green), writing (pink), exercise (blue) and misc (orange).

My writing space just got a whole lot awesomer.


Oh, and bonus! I received Pokemon X in the mail yesterday, so since I've hit my word goal for today and it's getting late(ish), I'm gonna go lounge in bed and watch Netflix and catch some Pokemon. [ profile] seanan_mcguire told me on Tumblr that we could trade once I level up. :D
