A room without a view.

I have moved. From my beloved desk with the big windows, surrounded by the people I have worked with since forever, to a room upstairs in the back corner of the building that I will share with a co-worker who does the same thing I do. To put it bluntly - they needed my desk downstairs.

I could have been offended but it seems I am much more laid back about these things than I once was. I have seen so many changes at my workplace in the last 5 years that it barely fazes me anymore. Well, and I know I'm just upstairs from all those people who I would miss terribly if I had to move to a whole different facility.

The room I am sharing is actually a nice size for 2 people, and will be more conducive to the kind of work we do. There are 2 big workstations, cubes if you will, a bookcase, standing coat tree, and a fridge. Ahem. Fridge. Hey - my daughter only used it for 2 semesters at school, so now - I am using it. At some point we will acquire a microwave and that will be enough to keep us happy.

Plus being upstairs has already had me huffing and puffing a couple of times going up and down today, so if I continue to take the stairs and not the elevator - this move could even be very healthy for me.

If it doesn't kill me first!!! Sheesh! Huff! Puff! Talk to you later. Cough, cough, wheeeeeeeeze !!!

Oh wow - you are going to be so fit! Dont get the microwave - too much temptation that way LOL
Does this mean the unbearable one is no longer within earshot? Fingers crossed!

Sorry Charlie, only the best reading blogs get to be tagged.

But think of how much quieter it'll be! And stairs are great. Just make sure the content of the fridge doesn't counteract the stairs, because for my 4 years living on a 4th floor it did!

Ooooh, a fridge! I'd love to have one of those. We do have a microwave though. Either of them are terrible for encouraging us to work through our lunch!

I also hate being changed around at work - but as I already work in a nasty little box room with no window it can't get much worse!

Yours sound quite cosy actually!

No more tongue clucking, teeth sucking, tuneless whistling or other annoying noises!!! Woo hoo!!
I'm used to have a micro close - I use it to heat up whatever I bring for lunch. :)

I'm also used to having a fridge nearby - mostly I use it for leftovers or to store the odd can of pop or bottle of water. We won't be stocking it, believe me!

I have been know to work through my lunch - but not often!!

It IS actually pretty cozy. Not bad, not bad at all!

I think that was an obvious Obama reference, isn't it?

Oh the tenses. Ugh.

If you get old desk sick I am sure you could get a telecom so you can still hear all the weird noises and voices ;)
