The Goffice

For a couple of years Secret Agent Man and I co-existed happily in the same office. When his super secrety responsibilities changed from Ops Analyst to Acquisitions, it became clear that he would need a little more space and privacy. If you are sneaky enough to catch a glimpse of his computer screen, what at first glance may seem like a harmless material requisition is actually missile launch codes, doomsday scenarios, and other state secrets.
For weeks I've been working on my laptop in different corners of the house. This weekend I finally set up my new digs in the guest room. I now call it, "The Goffice."
I bought a new desk and chair and moved it into the guest room next to my parents ancient bedroom furniture.
Deciding on the furniture arrangement was not easy. I knew I wanted my desk next to the window so I could spy on people in the park enjoy the beautiful view of the neighborhood park. In order to do that, perfect placement had to be compromised (Note the bed partially blocking the closet door). But, all in all, I am really happy with the result. I'm just waiting on a few accessories to arrive to finish the look. So if you come through my park, give me a wave and I'll tweet about what you are wearing and if you cleaned up after your dog.

Dear Santa, Whatever happened to the camera I asked for? Haven't I been good? Do you see the crummy pictures I have to put up with?

  3. My home office is right in my very own BIG bed! Laptop - check; TV on - check; Beveridge - check; dog nestled next to me? - check.

    It doesn't get any better than that!

  10. Guest room + office= Goffice.
    Guest + sister= Gister.

    Does that mean when I stay with you I am called your Gister? I can't wait for you to be my Gister in 17 days!!!!

  12. I'm glad you found a little space just for you! And a spying space makes it even better! ;)

    We're still trying to figure out where to put our office after the baby is born. I'm thinking it will end up in the kitchen or the family room downstairs. Decisions, decisions...

  14. Do you have a space for binoculars?

    When we were young and living in dinky apartments there was no where to put our computer desk. So we put it in our walk-in closet. It then became the Cloffice. But we didn't have great windows or a park.
