Day two: It’s 2:30 a.m. and I’m wearing my comfy flannel robe given to me by my South Carolina best friend, Marion some 12 years ago. I’m sitting in my new den in Uxbridge, MA doing some work on my computer setup that I completed just a few hours earlier. It was important to get up and running so I could begin the arduous process of updating my address on a dozen or more websites such as Social Security, car insurance, banking, etc., etc.. There were doubts about dead spots in broadband coverage downstairs where I now live. I was thrilled to discover the signal strength was strong in my den/living room where this huge oak rolltop desk is located. It’s absolutely perfect, with plenty of storage, cubby holes and pull-out shelves that I can use as arm rests while using my Wacom Intuos Pen/Touch tablet or bluetooth wireless Apple Magic Mouse. It’s a computer geek’s dream desk. 🙂 That be me!
I don’t know how long it will take me to get each room setup the way I like it but there’s so much potential here. For one thing there’s space, lots of space. I’ve been living in one room environments for years so it’s quite a luxury to have 4 whole rooms to customize any way I want. There’s even a workshop down here that I could use to get back into some minor woodworking that I love so much. If I need a shelf I can make one, ditto storage bins, coat racks or anything else I can dream up. That saves a lot of money and personalizes my living environment.
So this is only day 2 in my new home and I’m taking breaks in the unpacking process to enjoy the spaces that are special. This den with its 50″ TV and rolltop desk will be greatly used and appreciated. Welcome to a glimpse at my new home. 🙂
