In a fit of madness, prompted by my week of helping my friend prepare for her moving day, I decided to re-arrange my work space.

To be more precise:

I've decided to exchange the office part with the stock room part.




I must have been out of my mind!

Both interconnected rooms are fairly small. So now I'm trying to move shelves, paper, computers, stock, and everything else from one room to the other - more or less simultaneously.


The theory is good. Unfortunately, I'm running out of space to stack things while I move the shelves. So I'm moving around empty shelves, parked in the middle of the room, stacks of papers and office supplies, mountains of mangas and artbooks, and still trying to keep everything within the boundaries of (more or less) the two rooms alotted to my company.


I forsee a week of chaos approaching.

Hopefully, my new desk will be here on Thursday. And I ordered more shelves from IKEA, so I'm hoping that those, too, will arrive soon, so I can complete the exchange.

Why couldn't I have thought of this when I moved in?

I feel your pain!

I started remodeling several years ago, and the project gradually involved all the space in my tiny house. Every closet was first filled to bursting during the remodeling and now I am trying to put everything back. I swear the stuff mated and made more stuff. And putting things back involves more muscle and stamina than I have.

I am usually sitting surrounded by boxes, and certainly hope you are more efficient than me.

I've actually managed to get almost everything unpacked from the move 1 1/2 years ago. Just a few more boxes of stuff, that are mostly my daughter's, and aren't really needed.

I'm trying to keep things within reason. So I always only takle one project, one corner, one shelf. When I'm done with one, I move on to the next. It's working pretty well. This office thing is just a touch bigger than my usual bouts of insanity. ;)

Uh... and the motive for this was...? O.o

Well... you remember that week that I spent with my best friend? My best friend, who will be moving to her new place this coming week? And we spent a lot of time talking furniture and colours and decoration and stuff?

That sort of sparked a few ideas, you know. *coughcough*

Actually, I thought about the energy side of the current arrangements. See, the two rooms that I work in are interconnected. But my *office* part is actually in the back, sort of hidden away from everything and everybody. And the stock part is in front - basically the first thing you see when you walk in.

Now, I want my business to be successful. I can't do that if I'm hiding away in the back, can I? So I figured I'd put the stock in the back, where it's safe and where it's basically 'backing' me. And put my office in the front, where I'll be open to the world and accessable. Even though it sort of goes against my personal wish to just shut out the whole world at times.

But when I'm done with the office, I think I'll get started on my library and turn *that* room into my 'hiding-away-from-the-world' room. :)

You got bit by the decorating and organizing bug! :P

Yeah. Though, looking at the resulting chaos, I'm almost wishing I hadn't. *sigh*

You are...out of your mind... \(@o@)/

Re-arrange things are good though. It's a great oppurtunity to throw away trash and make things more efficient...

Well... yes. ^^

Actually, it is a really good opportunity to just go through all the stuff that's accumulated in the 1 1/2 years that we've been in the house and sort of 'clear the air' again. So that my mind has more space for new opportunities and possibilities. And is more open to better business.

It's still going to be a *damn* huge bit of work! O.o

Oi oi, hört sich an wie bei mir... nur das Motiv ist ein anderes. Wir hatten starken Regen und in Verbindung mit versagender Hebepumpe im Negativbrunnen und einem defekten Abwasserrohr ist unsere gesamte Siedlung abgesoffen. Da die Garage (genutzt als Keller/Abstelraum) und mein Büro im Souterrain liegt, ist das mit geflutet worden.
Nasse Akten, Schränke, der Laminatfußboden mußte raus, momentan stehen Bautrocknungs-Geräte in allen zwölf Häusern hier.
Danach wird gefliest. Oh, all der Kram. Bääh.

das hört sich ja mega-kotzig an! Du Arme! Wünschte, ich könnte Dir helfen...

Na ja, nachdem ich da bei meiner Freundin war, und wir dauernd über Umzug und neu einrichten und so nachgedacht haben, kam mir, dass das mit meinem Büro feng-shui-energetisch gesehen vielleicht doch nicht ganz glücklich ist. Also habe ich mich entschlossen, mich mehr der Öffentlichkeit zugänglich zu machen. Und das kann ich halt besser, wenn mein Büro an erster Stelle steht, statt meines Lagers.

Trotzdem ein ziemliches Chaos - wenigstens vorübergehend... *seufz*
