Desk Switching - Part One

My old metal desk was commandeered (with our blessings) by our daughter for her new office space in town.

Here I am packing up the contents of my old desk. (Kowabunga, there was a lot of stuff in there.)

Hubby and I manhandled (with the help of our trusty hand truck and after having to take off the legs) the desk out of our house, into the back of the Suburban and on into town where we met our daughter at her new office.

Above hubby has just gotten it into the second room which will be her office proper.

Here they're trying to place the (heavier than cement) desk close to the spot she wants it.

"Hello, how may I help you?" ( I'm sure the desk top is set up to be much more functional now.)

Tomorrow - The exciting pictures of my new wood desk being assembled. I'm so glad my husband had a male friend to help because if it had been him and me doing it, there would have been blood shed.

Funny! I had a friend ask me once to help with a leaky sink and I said, "What do you need me for?"...the reply..."For someone to yell at!"

Yay! You beat your daughter with the pic of her new space! That is a great addition to the office, nice large workspace! And all the knotty pine in your home office space is making me homesick! I think it is fitting that your trusty desk is beginning a new life along with your daughter, I hope it will bring years of prosperity to Chicken Mama!

Apple Pie Gal - Guess that just goes to prove we can be a friend in more ways than one!

Erin - My sweet daughter said she likes the desk all the more because it was mine for many years. Awwwww . . . balm for a mother's heart!

Susan - What? You assumed I was stoopid?? ;o)

Stephanie - Didn't get one blasted thing done on it today. But did take a few hours off this afternoon to drink wine out in the yard with a friend!

You have shifted your home and that is the reason you are doing great work. Going on doing things in this way.
