It's been awhile since I've participated in Five Minute Friday at The Gypsy Mama, but I'm back at it again today...it was needed. If you're unfamiliar with Five Minute Friday, it's simple as this--every Friday morning, she posts a prompt, and you write for five minutes, without worrying about forming completely coherent thoughts, without worrying about typos, or whether what you're writing is perfect...you just write.
Yesterday, I came across a simple desk at the store for $30. I haven't really had a desk since college, at least, and I've mentioned in the past that I just couldn't think of a good layout that included a desk in our living room, but on a whim, I bought the desk, figuring that I'd find a way to make it work.
The living room arrangement isn't my favorite that we've ever had, but it is probably more functional in the long-run...and I do like having a desk. A new home for my laptop, my to-do list, and a few pens...maybe even a printer in the future! It's nice having everything in one spot--and since it isn't as easy just to pull the laptop onto my lap while we're lounging around or watching TV, I hope that maybe I'll be more intentional with my time on the computer too.
Perhaps this new desk will bring about some much needed changes in our life too--more time intentionally spent playing with sweet Lizzy girl throughout the day. More time spent wholly in the moment with my sweet husband at night, rather than half listening to him and half browsing blogs. Here's hoping...hoping for something new.
