I’d be so happy about a floor!!!
[tweetmeme]

When I bought my house about 3 years ago, I reserved the extra bedroom as an office.   Within a couple of weeks I had the ugly 70s rubber-backed carpeting pulled up.  What a mess it made!  Whoever designed that type of carpet should refund everyone who has to deal with removing one!!  Michael scraped up as much of the dry rotted rubber as he could.  He was working at it for days.  It was quite a job.  Eventually he got around to painting the room, and then it sat… and sat… and waited… and wanted….  Until this weekend when finally the hardwood floor was installed.  I was cranky and impatient for 3 years because I wanted my office to be finished.  Trying to work in my sun-room isn’t the easiest thing in the world.  Well, take a look – I think it was worth the wait!!

A HUGE Thank You goes out to my friends Kevin & John for helping me get the job done!!  They even put up the molding for me!  They’re truly awesome!  And I’m so glad they had fun while they were doing it!  They made the job pass so quickly!  Good humor goes a long way!!

Isabella checking things out

While we were laying out the floor Michael said “A tree gave it’s life so you could have a nice floor.”  LOL!

This floor feels a little different....

Oh – before I forget – To Gail (Kevin’s wife) Kevin really really really wants an air nailer.  You should have seen the HUGE smile he got on his face when he started using it!!  I think he was sad when I had to return it to the rental shop!!  LOL!

"I don't have much traction...."

So, now that the floor is in – do any of you have ideas for office furniture? I can be picky, but here is the main criteria:

  • Can’t look like college dorm furniture
  • Needs to have file drawers that are deep
  • Needs to be STURDY and have good sliders on the drawers
  • Preferably wood and not laminate
  • Economical Price
  • Large desk surface space

I’d love for a company to come along with an office setup product review right about now 🙂
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend – the weather was beautiful for most of it!

Leave me a comment if you have any office furniture ideas and also while you’re at it, tell me if you did anything fun this weekend!

[tweetmeme] I have friends that send me all kinds of messages like this.  This one has many good lessons to remember.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.
Mental Feng Shui

ONE. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

TWO. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.

THREE. Don’t believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.

FOUR. When you say, ‘I love you,’ mean it.

FIVE. When you say, ‘I’m sorry,’ look the person in the eye.

SIX. Be engaged at least six months before you get married.

SEVEN. Believe in love at first sight.

EIGHT. Never laugh at anyone’s dreams. People who don’t have dreams don’t have much.

NINE. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it’s the only way to live life completely.

TEN. In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.

ELEVEN. Don’t judge people by their relatives.

TWELVE. Talk slowly but think quickly.

THIRTEEN! . . . When someone asks you a question you don’t want to answer, smile and ask, ‘Why do you want to know?’

FOURTEEN. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

FIFTEEN. Say ‘bless you’ when you hear someone sneeze.

SIXTEEN. . When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.

SEVENTEEN. Remember the three R’s: Respect for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility for all your actions.

EIGHTEEN. Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

NINETEEN. When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

TWENTY. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

TWENTY ONE. Spend some time alone.

A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart

Taking a snooze

This is Isabella taking a snooze on the day we met.
Back then she had floppy ears.
It makes me smile, but makes me sad too.
She’s grown up now.  Her ears stand up….
She still takes many naps and cuddles with me every chance she gets, but it’s not the same as when she was a little tiny puppy….
She’s snoozing away now as I type.
I might need to wake her up to play!

Nah….
