This is a second marriage, and he and his bride have actually been together for several years, but they went ahead and tied that knot a little tighter.
Since I'm a bit of a romantic sap, they get top billing this week.
Okay, enough mush... and speaking of sap, we had that tree thing this week. In the end, I'm happy with my tree man selection. He is a pretty nice guy, just lacking a bit in professionalism maybe. I suppose that I'd rather err on the side of friendliness and competence in sacrifice of professionalism.
In other happenings, I had a renewed motivation to "get my act together", mainly in just getting organized around the house. Maybe it's the New Year, maybe it's the Life Coach, maybe it was that sherrif pulling us over for an expired registration sticker (sheesh!). ANYWAY, now that things have gotten back into a groove after the holidays, I knew I needed to revamp my work area a.k.a "The Giga Desk" (as opposed to "Mega Desk", because mine is exponentially better)
It used to be a hodge podge of art toys, teaching materials, tutoring notes, household paperwork, and whatever other crap got piled on. It was "organized chaos", but I knew I needed to increase the "organized" and drastically decrease the "chaos".
This is the "After" photo. You don't want to see a "Before". I've already banished it from my brain.
