Whirlwind of a Week

Things have been a whirlwind this week. I’ve been working like a madwoman at work trying to wrap everything up at work, and man is it exhausting. I may be excited to be leaving for a new adventure, but I also like and respect my current boss and my staff, and want to leave them with as little additional stress as possible. So I’m busting tail to try and get everything set up for as smooth a transition as possible. I know that’s practically impossible in reality, but I’m trying.

On top of that, there’s the simple fact that I’ve been in the same job, in the same office, in the same cubicle for the past 7+ years. I’ve got stuff stashed in drawers, on the walls, etc. I’m slowly separating my stuff from the office stuff, and I thought it was going to go a lot faster than it has been. Granted, I’m doing it a little at a time, but I’m kind of surprised by how much I’ve found in corners of drawers and behind other files and underneath books. And I don’t have a ton of stuff compared to how some of my coworkers decorate their offices and cubicles, but it still is more than I was thinking.

On the flip side, I’ve been spending the evenings starting to get things ready to go at home. This weekend will include a trip to IKEA (hold me) to get some stuff to set up a work space. More to come on that later, but make no mistake, everyone is aware that I need my own space. I mean, working on my laptop in the La-Z-Boy is comfy, but not exactly conducive to long term working. Since N.C. has the spare room thoroughly converted to his art studio, my space is going to be slightly less closed off than I’d probably prefer since there’s ZERO chance we can share that room, but I’ll make it work. But it does mean some rearranging and whatnot, so I’m doing what I can during the evenings.

Basically, it’s busy. It’s busy, busy, busy… and good…and I’m happy.

I like it.
