Show Us Your Life Fridays- The Office

This week on Show us Where you Life - The Office :-)  You can check out Kelly's Korner here

In my home, I no longer have a room that is designated as the "office" - we gave that room to our son Nate, so he could have his own room.  Instead, I created an office space in my living room. 
I actually like my little corner - since the Living Room is where the kids play, this keeps me in the same room whether I'm paying bills, writing, or scrapbooking.  The biggest challenge is keeping it neat!!  I work hard to keep it from piling up too badly but every Thursday is "clean off my desk day".  I have to sort through piles, file everything, and make sure that nothing slips through the cracks.  I love my roll top desk - it was a "bet" with my dad when I was in high school.  I bet that I could save 1/2 the money to buy a desk we were going to build together.  He agreed thinking I wouldn't do it (I only needed $250.00!).  Well, I saved my money but he didn't want to build one LOL  So, I saw one on sale at a furniture store that equaled the $500.00 total . .. but when I got home from school, he had bought this one which was much nicer :-)  The thing is a bear to move but I love it so it is worth it!  That's all - my simple little "office" space :-)
