All of our stuff being in the Hermit Haus building does not mean all our stuff is set up. Since I know Mandi’s writing a blog post about the move, I’ll focus today on our ability to work, which is, getting our offices set up.
Lee spent a lot of time the past two days getting his office all set up. It looks very official, and we are all so proud of him for doing all this decor stuff by himself! He is especially proud of how he artistically hung up the wi-fi thingie.
Meanwhile, Mandi in the baby room has a lot of the important files piled in there with her, but she’s got her printer, her computer, and coffee. She’ll share more later!
As for me, I tried to be helpful and brought two rugs from Austin that we can put in offices. We put one in my new cave, and it’s rather wrinkly, but it will get figured out.
My desk does not want to go together properly, but it works, and thank goodness I have a high-quality surge protector/extension cord, because it was quite a challenge getting all the things plugged in. I need the light fixture in there, since the overhead light doesn’t work. It feels, um, cozy or moody or something in here.
Lee very kindly helped me hang some things on the wall. These aren’t necessarily my favorite things, or things I will use in the renovated office, but they do make it feel more cheerful. I especially like the mirror that got left in the building. I am pretending it is a window, though I think a “window” may be coming later.
I’m very pleased that Mandi bought heaters for our offices, since, as you may recall, there is no HVAC in here yet. I’d rather be in that situation in the winter than the summer, though, so I am not complaining.
Now that we have the offices set up, we can work on doing something with the “great hall” area. The bathrooms are in their cleanest 80s glory, so they’ll do.
We can’t clean the kitchen yet, since the David and Randy team have been taking apart the baptismal, and it is causing “interesting” debis to rain on the kitchen. We will need gloves and masks again when we do tackle the kitchen! We have coffee, though, so we’ll live.
This is sort of fun, I think.
