I’m not sure about you all, but I’m kinda floored that it’s already Christmas. Well, y’know, in three days but you catch my drift. I’m still not entirely sure where 2014 went, the past six months or so have just flown by. Today and tomorrow are my only days of work this week and, really, the last two days working in 2014. After tomorrow I don’t have to return to work until January 5th!
Being so close to the end of the year means getting down to the wire with the book I’ve been working on since August. A completed rough draft is due January 6th with the full materials due January 20th. I’m going to be done early no doubt, but with the deadlines looming I’ve been working on getting all my ducks in a row and plan on spending the week after Christmas working both on finishing up the book and making some changes to my Etsy shop (which hit 200 sales last week!)
This means that I’m going to be spending the next few weeks at the computer. This, of course, would normally mean lots of sitting but I decided that was unacceptable so I decided to get a little creative.
Originally the monitor was much much lower but as my sister pointed out it’s necessary for the back to have the screen more at eye level, a fact I quickly figured out after standing for only about 15 minutes with my eyes cast down. So yesterday afternoon I headed to Target and picked up the six cube organizer. Not only does it get the monitor at a more manageable level but adds extra storage space, too!
I’m honestly surprised it took me this long to get a standing desk, but I just spend so much time in front of the computer on weekends, working on various projects and it’s only recently that I realized how much sitting I do because of it. Hopefully this will help me get just some extra steps in at random. Bonus, now I can also dance in place while working!
Love from the ashes,
