The Trials of a Busy Mom

Hello from the other side (of the room, that is)

I’ve been in kind of an organizational/clean out the junk phase lately, and I decided it was time to tackle my office. My office/sewing room/place where kids play computer games/storage area for garage sale finds that I don’t know what to do with/craft area/mending area/place where broken things go to die/junk pile/big room full of clutter. Whew!

I’ve had a desk for my computer, AND a table for my sewing machine. It’s a little tight and crowded in here, but hey, at least I have a room of my own, right? I’m not complaining. But in a quest to streamline and make it a little nicer, I decided to eliminate the desk and put both the computer and the sewing machine on the table. One on one end and the other on the other end.

So far, I’ve got the computer moved, and I thank my lovely husband for hooking everything up for me. I deftly UNhooked it, but as far as hooking things up (especially when I just moved it across the room where there is no jack) I’m pretty clueless.

Does the blog look different? Because instead of facing North, as I have been for the last 8 or so years, I am now facing East. Instead of a view of a lovely wall, I now can look out the East window and see the little swallows who have made a nest in the porch eaves. I can also more effectively “Mrs Kravitz” and spy on my neighbors, watching to see who’s coming and going. Oh the fun.

Unfortunately, I can also get a nice view of the disarray of the office. Shelves need to be moved, the carpet under the desk spot is disgusting and dusty, and the sewing machine is now on the floor. So, yes, I still have a lot of work to do. And a lot of sneezing, from the vast amounts of dust that I’m stirring up.

Yes, I’ll post some pictures when I get it done (or at least when I give up and decide it’s good enough). But I just wanted to know if YOU like the new look. Because, honestly, the blog is now coming from a totally new area of the room. An area that’s never been blogged before! How does it look?


  1. The whole time I was reading this, I thought, “Wow. Something is so different.” I just figured it out. You moved your computer to the other side of the room.

  2. Love the new look! Now that I am finished with my classes…Spring cleaning is next on the agenda for me as well. Good luck with your office…that’s a big one!

  3. Wow! Result! It looks TOTALLY different…yet familiar. 🙂

  4. Oh, I made it SO MUCH WORSE. Now my table is covered with STUFF again, and I don’t think I’ll ever dig out. What have I DONE?!!!

  5. Hmmm. I’m not seeing a difference! Keep working on it.

  6. I LOVE before and after shots so be sure to post them! I’ve recently been tackling my kitchen but the office? Next on the list. Hopefully you’ll inspire me.

  7. I love the look of your blog! I’m not sure how you did it, but I love how you display your date! So unique!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. It is always encouraging to hear from other moms and fellow bloggers! I must say that when I first became a mom, raising a “hottie” was not first on my list. I think just making it through this stage was first on my mind, but now I realize that our kids grow far too quickly and I’m going to miss them – Hottie and all!

    Great job on the Sewing and scrapbook areas! One of the things I plan on doing this summer is cleaning out my sewing and scrapbooking areas. They are a mess! The sewing area won’t take but a few hours, but the scrapbooking area may take all day! Yikes! I’ve been working on some quilt projects and really want to get them finished as quickly as possible before finding all those buried projects in my sewing area. Great post!
