Shambling toward Dagon

The practice waking up early carried over into this morning, and I was able to make it without major catastrophe. Sadie dog is very sad; she recognizes the signs of me being gone all day again, and she did not want me to go. I'm pretty sure she's enjoyed having me at her beck and call for the past couple of weeks. I have to admit that I've enjoyed it too, but part of me has been looking forward to coming back to work.

The Big Broken Box™ is a depressing place.

Yeah, like you didn't know that already.

I've worked on it a lot, but there's still an overwhelming amount of stuff to do. There isn't really a comfortable place to be yet, my bedroom is the closest thing to comfortable that there is, though the living room actually has some usefulness again. But it's utilitarian, and not comfortable. It looks like a staging area for construction, which it is, but it's also a part of the house. It's the living room ferchrissakes. There should be living.

Perhaps I'm asking too much. I could really do something like rearrange the living room to make it more friendly, move the furniture over to the fireplace side and have a more cozy space, turn the other end into tool storage and staging area while I need it. I could add a bookshelf as a psychological divider as well as a shelf for books.

The living room has had the same basic layout for several years. It's not exactly space-conserving, but that's more to do with the physical orientation of the living room structure than any design decisions. At the same time, it may be time for a change-- it's been at least five years, probably closer to seven. Maybe "freshing" the living room will be just what I need to help me get back into some happy.
