I have been dreaming a long time about my own office. Working from home is difficult when you don’t have a space of your own to hide away in to focus on getting things done. This might be one of the reasons I always feel behind. I tried setting up my office in my dining room and it worked, but it was still very open to everyone else. I toyed with having it in the basement, but just never got to doing anything about it.
We are very fortunate to have a finished basement, though we never really take advantage of it. I go down there to do the Laundry, and it used to be put to use when my baby sister lived here. There is a tv, cable, and a futon for guests who need to crash. We had even started turning one area into a play room at one point (which will still happen). Other than that, it has pretty much been neglected.
The last month has been really busy for me. My dining room is stacked with Belly casts that need to be done. The kids have been extra loud, and the work load is piling up. Finally, I am getting my butt in gear. I am taking over a small corner, in our small basement and setting up an office/craft space. This is my current work in progress!
What a MESS it is right now. But soon, it will be awesome. It will be MY space!
