Well, it took a full week, but we're finally moved in to the new place. Mostly. The bed delivers next week, then the living room set (so grown up! we bought a living room set!) the week after that. The boxes are about 70% unpacked (and some I'm just putting right in the basement, no need to unpack then repack the Christmas ornaments). I successfully unboxed and used lots of our new kitchen equipment and dishes from the wedding (yay, Le Cruset!) and we enjoyed a delicious (if I do say so myself) spaghetti carbonara last night.
So now I'm able to get back to work, and it feels like I've been gone forever. My Google Reader is overflowing with interesting articles, my mind is bursting with notes for a freelance editorial project, and I've got some copy edits to approve for a Carina title. Plus, as usual, a slew of intriguing submissions to tempt me from my Kindle.
Naturally, then, I took some time yesterday to set up my office. Well, half-set up. I still need to put stuff on the walls (a cork-board, for organization!), and I'm using an old filing cabinet as a desk until we find a nice, small one at St. Vinnie's, but for the most part, my books are on shelves and my laptop is at the ready. I'm dying to dive back into work -- not just because I'm tired of hauling boxes, but because I love what I do, and too long without it makes Jack a dull boy. (Mom, don't click that link.)
My new office:
I never tire of gazing at my books.
Hmmm. Editorcat is intrigued by your query and will consider it further.
Editorcat may need more coffee for this.
Because every office needs a Unicorn, Unicorn, Unicorn & Friends Nook.
