Closer yet

I'm in my office and it's functional. I have no idea how to hang a roman shade, even with a book to guide me, but I suspect it involves some sort of hardware I don't yet have. (They seemed to have some sort of stick with eye-hooks in it in the book. I didn't have one.)

I'm too lazy to snap a photo just now, and upload it, etc. etc. etc. I did snap an ugly beige "before" photo, so I'll post 'em together.

The valance doesn't fit the window, but with some creative patching together I think I can make it do something interesting over the closet door.

The carpet tiles rock. I'm totally proud of myself for installing my own carpet!

Now I want a new computer. This PC laptop...never liked it. There's some weird way I rest my hands near the "mouse" that occasionally makes the cursor jump to some other spot on the page while I'm typing. I also can't use Scrivener on it, because it's a Mac-only program.

We've got a big iMac in the bedroom and I couldn't move it. We watch DVDs on it, listen to internet radio, listen to my iTunes library. I lay in bed and scroll through my podcasts with my remote. We listen to stories as we go to sleep. We just use it too much in there and we'd miss it if it was gone. So...I figure I need another iMac for this room. (It's more than just a computer--it's a computer/stereo/TV!) Seriously, though, the iMac speakers are really nice, and is more like a media center to me. I really love the all-in-one-ness of it.

Problem is, I don't NEED a new computer. I can make do with what I've got. I can admit to wanting it, though.

congratulations on the office so far!

(as a temporary fix, would plugging in a spare keyboard and mouse fix at least the first problem?)

I think if I plug in a mouse, the keyboard problem will disappear because the mouse-space won't be sending signals anymore.

It's just a SLOW computer. Boo.
