I’ve read posts from some bloggers who share what their home offices look like. Tranquil areas where morning coffee or tea can be enjoyed while writing and ideating away the hours in blissful productivity. Deadlines and expectations seem like they’d be more tolerable in this type of environment.
Theirs is an office I can only dream about owning. Many of them look like something out of Martha Stewart magazine. Stylish, organized….clean.
Now, I’ll show you my office. Keep in mind, I share this office with five-year-old Peanut. Brace yourself. Martha would be appalled.
To my right is the activity area for Twix. On a good day I can get somewhere between 10-15 minutes of uninterrupted work while she is wiggling herself off the mat.
To my left is the architectural area. I believe Peanut is working on a racetrack design among other projects ideas.
Directly behind me is the 3-dimentional art area where Peanut keeps her crayons, pencils, and various found objects….just waiting for inspiration.
UNDER my desk is another area that usually contains notebooks, crayons, pencils, glue and scissors…and my feet.
Directly to the left ON my desk is usually the results of Peanut’s ideating.
Here is my *work station*…in all its glory. Thankfully 99% of what I do is done and stored on the computer. Not going to lie, there are days when I get paralysis by analysis just looking at the mess. Just for the record, I do clean, organize and straighten from time to time and it looks great….for about an hour.
And here is a wonderful accessory everyone working from home with a baby needs to have….sleeping baby not included.
This is the view out my window. It’s the closest thing I have to a tranquil, inspiring scene while working in the office.
But here is the break room! Contrary to how it looks, Tanner and Dixie are not in Peanut’s face for food. She is blowing bubbles at them.
So there you have it…a peek into my world of working from home. Maybe some day I’ll have a *proper* home office. But for the foreseeable future, we’ll make do with what we have…or have not.
