Home Office Makeover

The only office I have really had was my office space at work. When I am home, I have used the sofa and nearby end table as a mini work station with my laptop.

The space is very pleasant and I have worked like this since 2007 when I was in grad school. It has served a great function for a small amount of time I used it each day.

Since I have retired, I found that I need a real office space with a decent desk and office chair. The room I moved into had been turned into my hubbie’s man-cave a few years ago. He promised to organize and re-arrange so that I can set up the desk he commandeered. And he already has a desk with his computer.

Now that I am retired, I need to be away from the TV so I can focus on blogging and my consulting business.

It won’t be too long when we start the addition on the master bedroom. Gee, can’t wait. When this starts, blog posts will abound. Yay! Meanwhile, you can check out my Pinterest page. https://www.pinterest.com/aquachica/

  1. we also have a standalone monitor connected to our laptop, just like yours. And for our desktop, we connect it to our TV screen (so, even bigger monitor, haha, perfect for watching videos)

  2. Having an office space is key for me. Sometimes I just need to be alone and sift through the many pieces of paper that I’ve saved. You’ll find your space too. It may take a while to figure out what you need now, but you’ll do it. Have fun!
