Early Christmas

My Christmas Present came today.
It came by FedEx in a really big box.
It is approximately 6'x3' in size.
Any guesses?
No?
So I will just have to tell you.
My hubby bought me a sweet desk for our home office (I'll take pictures later).
Even when I was a teacher in the classroom I never enjoyed a desk quite like this one.
At first thought I imagined it to be too big for the room especially since my hubby has one identical to it in the same office.
On second thought, I think I will fill every inch available.
This gift has an interesting element to it.
I am a teacher by trade and have the tremendous blessing to teach my own children in our own home. I am not paid for my abilities outside of eternal investments. Not that I am seeking recognition, but in a sense this desk adds some validation to my job. I happily taught from whatever seat was available in whatever room. I will continue to move to be with my kids. However, having my own space to work and having an effective filing system are huge.
The kids all have their own desks and space to work. This gives Mommy space for herself.

A great Christmas gift and I am sure it will be well-used. There is NOTHING like feeling organized in teaching. When I taught outside my home, I always loved the week before school started--getting it all organized.

We're making due with the basement for now, but I know it won't last forever. I feel like school stuff is shoved into places instead of organized.

Have a wonderful Christmas, Sandy!

Yeah for you. Isn't it nice to have your own space and to feel organized in that space? I would be so happy with a new desk!
