The new office is born!

AAAAAAAH! I'm in! After three long years, my office dream is finally here!

My day started off with typical work at home day with Dave whizzing to and fro in the background. I promised him after lunch I'd join in the fun for it sure looked alot more fun than paying bills and such...

So after lunch I ran to him and told him he was in charge and where did he want me.

Dave is organized and likes to see things done right, no ifs, ands or buts. I was more than happy to comply! So we focused on the pile of stuff in the office. It was high time we moved in Dave said, so we simply made today the day.

After Dave snapped up the last baseboard, the vaccum cleaner created the perfect platform for my desk. BUT first, came my Ikea trials and tribulations. I had picked up two small extentions for my current desk and oh lucky me, the manual was plenty fat and ready for me to take way too long to figure out. But eventually with abit of Dave's guidance (I moan and groan some when things get tough and he overheard me) it was done!

Next, dinosaur computer equipment. Yellowed components with Windows 98 no less but hey, it all works! Not anxious to unhook everything under the sun, I scootched it all bit by bit across the floor dragging wires galore with Dave's help.

Oops. Piano in the way. So Dave helped me finally put that thing all together (movers had dismantled some stuff)and he wanted it facing out, so our viewing public had a nicer view. Details I tell ya... oh, and we both played chopsticks together to make sure it still worked and all that.

Wow. Now I'll have to find a way to free up my memory card so I can start taking more pics! (that's why I stopped and my laptop burps when I ask it to burn a dvd.. whatever)

So, for you viewing public, I guess you'll just have to pay a visit!

I'm also planning a place for the 'signing wall.' For everyone that has helped on this project and wellwishers, I'd love them to sign a wall with a comment if they wish. I'd like to have done it sooner however nothing was painted and ready yet. So what wall do you think? The office? The bathroom wall would make for some interesting reading and be kinda funny... must ponder abit more...

Dave, thanks for a day full of laughs and some very intense exquisite work! I get to enjoy the memory of working with you every time I walk through my NEW OFFICE!
