Back To School

It's that time again. School started back up on Tuesday (boo) which meant a little rearranging was in order. If you remember, our computer was located in the living room.

The class I am taking is an online course which means I will be spending a lot of time in front of that screen-- but the other screen on the left is the problem. The temptation to get distracted by TV is much too great for me to handle. Plus, I do a lot of work at night so when Dan gets home he wants to relax in front of the tube and I would have to say No. Plus I use the computer to run this humble blog so altogether it wasn't going to work out in its current location. So we simply switched it with the bookshelf in the dining room.

We couldn't actually do an even trade since the wall the computer was on in the living room is slanted and the height of the bookshelf barely clears the wall light. So we put it on the opposite wall.

And a close-up of the bookshelf, which still needs some rearranging.

And here is the computer desk in its new home:

Gotta figure out a printer solution also. The only outlets are behind that chair and two behind the computer, both of which are taken up. Wireless maybe? {Dan?}

Man thats a lot of wood...

Still gotta paint that chair! And a new cushion probably. I like that one too much to continue squishing it.

So there is my solution for TV distraction and hopefully this will give me more motivation to actually do my work. It will at the very least give me solitude. Anyone ever relocate their work desk for a similar reason? Anyone have amazing multi-tasking skills and can watch TV and do homework at the same time?

P.S. I also updated the Tour page to reflect these changes
