A Room of One's Own...

errrr...a landing of one's own.

I'm putting my finishing touches on my essay and resume for my college application. (Some of you may get your email boxes stuffed with my blatherings so you can perfect them for me.) I have sent away for transcript requests like a big, brave girl. I am getting my financial aid paperwork together and hopefully soon I will be a 36 year old freshman.

I've been trying to figure out where I can set up my own little space and desk. I figure once Ladybug is big enough (2 years old, maybe?) we will move her into a room with Jellybean and the boys can have the other room and then I can use the little nursery for my study area. But, until then I have my landing. It is just the right size for a desk we pulled off the side of the road on bulk trash pick-up day. I need to sand and paint it, but it should be perfect. I'm going to use some of my student loan money to buy myself a laptop. I can't wait to get started!

Shaz~Can you link that post you did about creating a workspace?

if you go to the as-is section in ikea, you can prolly get some cool stuff there - keep an open mind! remember, doors can be shelves and such! :)

Well its better to have a little space for yourself then NO space at all. I work in a factory,and have GREAT ear plugs, i could send you some to block out your noisy distractions! lol

We have a gorgeous L-shaped maple desk with hutch in our office, which is downstairs next to the family room. As you can understand, I NEVER WORK THERE. I am resigned to a folding card table in a corner of our bedroom, far away from the noise downstairs.

I say, take whatever you can get!
