As I mentioned at WoT, Marty now works from home. I had planned to discuss how to rearrange so that neither of us are bothering the other during his work-day and he brought it up himself earlier today. He and I work and think totally opposite - often a problem. His way of thinking was to just charge in like a bull in a china shop and start shuffling things around without a real plan. In his mind of course, he had a little bit of a plan.
My way of thinking would be to recognize what needed to be moved and how best to rearrange existing items in the room for everything to fit and function well. I would have drawn out a to-scale plan for that fit and layout. This while recognizing that neither area, nor furnishings in them had been cleaned in eons, along with whole lot of clutter that hadn't been dealt with for a very long time. I would have dealt with those issues first. Consideration had to be made for how the background and lighting for those times he'd be on video-conference calls too.
While he was beginning to put his plan in action, and I was still trying to warm up to the whole idea of doing any of this today, and was dragging my feet wanting to do nothing but hang at the computer while I contemplated it. Well, I finally felt I had to get off my duff and supervise (we have very different ways of cleaning too, and left to him - cleaning would be minimal). Supervising meant grabbing the vacuum before too much dust started flying. The brush attachment tackled the layer of dust sitting atop the furnishings and the vacuum tackled the floor with the help of the crevice tool. Oh my there was a lot of dust and cat hair when some things were moved!! A few cobwebs too! The room as a whole is far from finished, but at least that little corner is clean and now houses his desk and computer. It'll be a progression as he adds the small stuff.

This is the other corner to the right. That's my Sears Kenmore cabinet machine doing
Nothing else will get photographed in that room at this point. So much to sort through and get rid of. I have boxes of clothes that I've thought "I can wear those again when I lose...", well, we know how that goes, so it's probably time to get rid of them. By this time, someone's bound to call them "retro" hehe. Marty & I both have boxes of stuff to sort through.
We haven't decided if we're doing anything tonight for Valentine's day. My stomach has been giving me issues since Thursday night, so I'm trying to be careful about foods. I don't want to go to the doctor, but the first couple days nearly did. I'm thinking possible ulcer, but don't want to deal with the testing...not until I have the insurance cards in hand! Marty asking what I might be able to eat, so I guess I'd better start thinking about that.
