uhhh never mind

So after writing that post last night, I attempted to go to bed. I was still awake after 1 a.m. when Jayden started crying. No attempt to rock, hold, jiggle, or pat him seemed to help so i laid him back in his crib and he cried for quite a long time. No idea why. I was still not in a deep sleep just after 4 a.m. when Jay's alarm went off. Jayden woke back up sometime thereafter and I ignored him. I finally got into some deep sleep and of course, Jayden woke up and was hungry this time.

ANYWAY, i said all that to say while I was lying there trying to sleep I had lots of thoughts running through this pea brain of mine. Jay asked me if i was going to be editing and working on the computer in our bedroom in the evening - of course I said i would since the kids would be asleep and I could concentrate. Enter problem #1 - Jay can't sleep at all if there is any kind of light so the light from a 32" monitor would keep him awake. I never even thought of that. OOps! So at 2 something this morning I decided that a black desk was not what i wanted after all. I mean I still want something black to hold our 32" monitor/tv in our room but it doesn't necessarily have to be a desk type thingie now that I won't be working in there as much as I originally thought.

So on to plan B which formulated in my brain in the wee hours of this morning while I tossed and turned. I generally spend 90% of the day downstairs with the kids. Since we have a 6 foot fence around our back yard, I can open the back patio and let Rylee play out there without much supervision so I work away in the living room which has direct line of sight to the backyard as well as the side of the house. No one can get to the 6 foot gate without me seeing it and it is currently latched and I added a bungee cord since Rylee is learning to open the same kind of gate that encloses the dog run.

So I scoured the internet yet AGAIN. This time in an effort to find something that matches my antique wash stand that sits just inside the door in the entryway beside the living room. You may remember it? It is white wash (yeah it's peeling) with a walnut (?) top. So now to find a desk that matches this since the only other furniture in there are two mismatching couches (another sore subject) and a 6 foot tv armoire that is a similar color to the wood pictured on the top of the stand.
Definitely can't have a black desk in a room with this beautiful piece of history. I finally found one online today. I actually visited Target this morning, Jcpenney, Kmart, Carsons, 2 flea markets and decided I was not going to locate the right desk and went home brought up the website and ordered it. Frankly after all this run around for a silly desk i was tired of looking. The reviews on the desk look good. I measured my area and it should fit fine. Now to find the perfect chair....somebody help me!!! (i will post a picture when I get the desk put together and in place - the website doesn't have a photo that i can use)

Glad you found something that will work! And before you bought the black one too! Gotta love the millions of time we change our minds as girls!
