Long ago, in Part 1, I got my home office into some semblance of officeness, clearing away much of the clutter that had accumulated over the years.
Since then, I've been working on the lab / storeroom / Bluebeard room. By mid-October, I had enough space cleared that I could move my electronics work off the sewing table, in time for Halloween. I've gradually been clearing more space, adding shelves, adding test equipment, and so on. Some of the larger clutter is meant to go to the new quarters of the startup company of which I'm a part, once we actually start moving in (which should be later this week).
Well, this afternoon there was a mission change. Last week, Fearless Leader went to a conference, and talked to various people, including a newspaper reporter. Now the reporter wants to interview him - and wants to get a photo, in his office. Oops. We don't have the office yet (should have the conference room set up in another week or so). He has a garage, and a living room. And the Starbucks where we've been holding the weekly company meeting. Happy thought: get the whole gang over here for a group photo in my lab. This means I need to clear the rest of the clutter out, and make it look respectable, by Wednesday morning.
It's been a busy afternoon. I've cleared out about half the remaining clutter, including most of the big stuff (the other big items are shoved under a table, looking like they belong there). Mopped the furthest back part of the floor for the first time in, um, ever.
Since I haven't bulldozed the living room yet, and the front yard looks like it's been hit by fall (and generally not tended much even during the summer), we may have to blindfold the newspaper folks for the journey back to the lab.
Back to work now....
