Fun Monday

Our wonderful hostess this week is Gattina, who is suffering from writer's cramps!! Here is her assignment:


As I am a very curious person, I just want you to show us a picture of your blogging place ! Your room or bed or whatever space(s) or place(s) you have to write your posts.

Thank you for a nice, easy assignment on this holiday weekend!!!


Here is where I used to blog when I first started.....in our computer room. This was fine in the beginning, but once I became hooked on blogging I was spending more and more time here in this room.....but my family was....


...here, in this room, our family room. I would feel guilty being separated from them so I splurged and purchased a laptop. Now you can find me in this room, with my family....


...on this couch blogging away. Now I don't feel too guilty and I am very comfortable and I am in the same room as my family....


...and this is my view from my Blogging Couch!!
All is now well in my world!!

Very nice change, I love the photos of your home. I don't have a laptop, but Bob's been encouraging me to get one.

Know what you mean about feeling guilty about hiding away to blog. You've found a solution that works for all. Just curious--is that a really bad storm out your window? Looks like a tropical tree blowing in the wind. If you're in the path of Gustav, take care.

Alison,

I love the glimpses into your life! Now I will be able to imagine where you are when I read your posts. Somehow that makes it make me feel even closer to you, dear heart! I love all of your books! And what do those tanks in the background contain, or shouldn't I ask? Marly has moved to college with Rachel, so I haven't had to feed him crickets in a while.

Thank you so much for your very kind words. As always, just hearing from you makes me feel better. Mark read the letter first, but I warned him that if he found something in the mail and didn't tell me about it, that I would be upset. I think shredding it might have been a good idea, but unfortunately, we are going to proceed with some legal actions pertaining to possible visitation, and if we do that, I will need as much proof as I can provide. Please don't mention that part on my blog. I would love to have a phone chat when my girls go back to school. We will have to try to schedule a date!

Big hugs,
Debbie

PS-I read someplace that you lost Zach. I am very, very sorry, Alison. I know how special and important he was to your family. He was a good boy. You were a good Mom to him!

I was expecting to see a shot of the whole family in the room with you. Thanks for play and giving a glimps of your world

My 'puter is in a central location, but I still want a laptop!
I love those fish tanks.

What can I say my friend? All good fairies think alike! Portable is so much easier, don't you think? (And not as heavy on the wings! He he!)

marmiteandtea said...

Love it! as we said physically there but the minds in blogland :)

Pamela said...

Where's your lap? he heh.

I want a lap top, but it isn't my priority right now.

Ali said...

I have a laptop but have not yet got round to blogging from it. Thank goodness, that would have required far too much tidying up to take the photos yesterday!

Hootin' Anni said...

Are those all aquariums? Whoa....lucky you. Great room.

My Fun Monday Blogging Area is posted now if you'd like to take a gander.....stop by. Have a great day.

Very nice! i have a laptop too, but still prefer to blog from my desktop! But, my desktop is in my "great" room where the family hangs out, so i hav the best of both worlds.

Rebecca said...

Ahhhhh...

I love to be able to blog in peace and quiet so although I have laptop I will be pleased to get back into my office again!! wonderful to peep into your world and home, take care, Judyx

lisaschaos said...

That was a great idea - getting a laptop so you were more portable. :) What is in those aquariums?

grace said...

the couch looks cozy and nice to blog on.

ChrisB said...

I'm seeing so many laptops and I'm so envious. There are so many advantages to being mobile. I shall have to save a bit harder!!

storyteller said...

Certainly a positive change to be able to spend time with your family while blogging! Aren’t laptops the best? I’ve shared MY blogging spaces at Small Reflections.
Hugs and blessings,

I know what you mean about being away from the family. Our PC is on the kitchen so at night Mr B and I hardly see each other. I'm getting a laptop soon though so I can blog and be near him and the kids too. I can't wait. :D

Sayre said...

Oh! Your coffee table is lovely!

My computer is in an upstairs bedroom, AWAY from everyone else. Except they follow me up there!

Gattina said...

You are right ! Blogging shouldn't be separation from real life ! How nice you now blog amongst your family !

MoziEsmé said...

Yep, those laptops are wonderful! Now if only I could get my wireless internet working.
