Top 5 Reasons I KNOW I Have Spent TOO Much Time at....

... MY Desk.


It has occurred to me recently that I have spent far too much time at my cube. Although decorated to be comfy, but clearly not as fantastic as Pink Lou Lou's, it's the place where I spend the majority of my week. See below for proof of my less the then lustrous but more then mundane desk space.

Main work space... the Computer and Telephone... mostly telephone. Specifically voice mails. 

Some of the people I love! The pictures I post here I usually choose because I specifically love the memory of the particular moment. I don't know why but for some reason the smallest snapshot of a day ends up being my favorite moment to remember. 

Some other lovelies I love!

 So now that you see the place where I spend the most time I feel you are prepped to understand the points I am about to make regarding the time spent in this area.

# 1) I have more food in my desk drawer then I do in my pantry at home... You can ask Michael. He will tell you he eats subway most days because there is typically nothing to eat at our house. Except the weeks when I go to the grocery and I'm hungry. We typically end up with a fair amount of food, granted it ends up being things that make no sense, in the moment in the grocery lane it was a great idea!
# 2) Anytime I order something online. I have it sent to my office address because if it is sent to my house I would never be there to receive it. Plus when it comes to my office Michael is less likely to know that I bought something new.
# 3) There are more decorative items hanging on the walls of my cubical then there are on the walls of my house. Pictures, plants, etc... Recently I acquired a nice "hook" to hang my car keys on my cube wall. At my house I lose them, throw them on the sofa table, or leave them in Michael's car.
# 4) I have been throwing around the idea of bring a really nice blank to my cube. One because its 27 degrees back here and I am freezing to death and two the sad but true reason because my desk chair needs a little flair and I feel a throw blank would really give it something extra special.
# 5) The main, final and most ridiculous reason. A few weeks ago I was at a bridal luncheon at a local tea room with my girlfriends (Pre-Wedding for the new Mrs. Kapp). After several rounds of tea I needed a serious bathroom break. (Now keep in mind on this lovely ladies Saturday I had spent the first few hours of the morning at work in my cube.) During said potty break I started to wash my hands and was immediately infuriated that the toilet had not automatically flushed. WHAT?! REALLY DANA? Reality check girlfriend... toilets in all bathrooms do not flush automatically just because the toilets at work do... holy cow.

Anywho... Hope you gals are looking forward to restful time away from your cubies this weekend! Have a great rest of the work week!
