Making Piles & Taking Names

A little over a year ago, I posted here on LLM about me cleaning the music room in our place.

Well, to be frank, it’s pretty much stayed in its “after” condition, which is okay . . . especially since I think everyone has that one room in their house that’s sort of a disaster area. The place where anything that doesn’t have a home lives – kind of like the “Monica Geller’s” infamous secret closet. But you know what?

Jenna is SICK of it!


I stated in my 2014 To-Do that one of my goals was to sell [a.k.a. get rid of] anything we didn’t want and/or need. Plus, I’ve decided I really need an office of my own. A space where I can gather my creative thoughts, write to my heart’s content, and organize all the glorious paperwork that comes along with having your own upholstery business. I gave up on the built-hallway desk a couple months back and now D uses it as his catchall place for his work-related items.

Why don’t you like that space?

It’s simply a bad set-up with terrible lighting and this odd energy-killing vibe. So I got the heck out of there and have been migrating throughout our home, working from different areas, ever since. I mean a change of scenery is nice [from time to time], however, that’s what coffee shops are for ;) I’m also oh-so-tired of “packing up” my stuff at the end of each and every workday. It’s become a task I dread and is also a complete waste of energy.

So, I am simplifying things.

The entire music room has been gutted. All of my papers have been gone through and shredded. I’m even [once again] getting a handle on my networking with the Business Card Reader app. Now, all that’s left is to organize all my recipes, find a desk, and to decide what of the items I’ve placed in our guest room to purged or otherwise put in storage.

All in all, the music room is on the up and up, people, AND I am SOOOOOO happy about it!
