So far today, the office has been cleaned a LOT (thanks largely to sambear). It feels better in every way.
The mail station has been set up, the CD-ROMs have been transferred to their new home in a set of rolling drawers, and the old drawers went to Katie’s room to hold her educational software.
The laser printer is in its new, more accessible location.
The server’s modem is actually hooked up to the phone line (I hope to figure out the whole fax server thing before too long).
The router and cable modem are on little shelves that give them room to “breathe,” which should help with their occasional heat issues.
The unused cables have been pulled out from behind PCs and desks and put away.
The power cords have been rearranged so as to be neater and free up a power strip.
All the office supplies have been put away in their designated places in the supply closet.
The tower of tiny hardware drawers finally made it to its home inside the supply closet, where it’s accessible without being unsightly (and I sorted everything in it. I still need to label the drawers, though.)
The reversible US/world map is actually HANGING UP! I found the clip things that we got for that purpose, which hold it firmly but allow it to be removed, flipped, and hung back up. We hung the neat C‑SPAN American Presidents Timeline a while back.
The carpet is all nice and clean, which feels good on bare feet.
All the papers that are left to sort (not that many anymore) are in the living room with the filling supplies and the two rolling file carts. I will be joining them in that location shortly and finishing the filing.
shadowkatt re-secured a stray speaker wire in the living room for me before her friend C arrived for a few days visit. I’m much happier without that thing hanging down across the living room window.
