Reorganizing Life

Do you ever have those days where you wake up (literally or not) and realize that you are wasting time? Like, all of it? Well, that happened to me recently.

I decided it was time for Geoff and I to get our butts in gear. I took a hard look at WHY we seemed to be so counterproductive in our daily schedules. And I found a key factor: we have recently bought a television and we put it in the bedroom. Now, there is nothing inherently wrong with neither the television nor the bedroom, but as a team, they were creating a recipe for laziness.

We like to watch a show while we eat dinner. So, we'd come home, take dinner up to the bed, watch a show and then...where were we? Bed! And who wants to get out of bed at the end of a long work day?

So, last weekend we made a plan to rearrange the apartment to facilitate a more productive lifestyle. We moved the bed down from the loft to one of the bedrooms. We moved the office up to the loft with the TV. So now the red leather couch, desk, computer and TV are all upstairs. So after we eat dinner and watch a show - we aren't in bed. In fact, we're surrounded by all the things we need to get productive!

We also rented a steamer and cleaned all the carpets.

It felt good to get things in order and get our evenings back from the evil (yet undeniably comfortable) bed!


  1. Laziness = Bliss! I just took a 2 hour nap!

  2. I just found another time-zapper: Surfing around trying to find interesting blogs and interesting recipes and interesting shoes and interesting facts about parka-wearing in the Northern Hemisphere and .... need I continue?

    My computer is controlling my life!
