We spent last weekend in the basement office (aka “family room”). We got rid of one computer and one desk and consolidated the whole office area. I love it. We still have the old desk, but it’s going to go home with Randy’s dad some time. Or I’ll get sick of it and tear it apart and put it on the curb, one or the other. It looks much bigger down there now, and less cluttered. AND we got everything up off the floor, hence the Getting Ready for Spring part.
We tend to get lazy over the winter and aren’t super careful about leaving things (toys, books, pillows, blankets) on the floor, but towards spring, we can’t do that, because the basement could fill with water any moment.
