After a year and a half I think we can safely say that we’re finally getting Serendipity (our current coach) to the point that we have most of it the way we want it, instead of the other way around, with most of it needing tweaking in some way or another. The flip-flop has been a long time coming but it’s the way we do things: live with something for a while before jumping to conclusions about what needs changing. Then handle upgrades or changes as needed — when you really know how you live with that thing.
In the last month and a half I’ve added new hardware, new storage, rearranged a lot of things and gradually been turning Serendipity into a coach that was easier to live with. None of the changes mean we bought the wrong coach — they are pretty much all trying to find the right place for things that we had grown accustomed to being in different places in our previous coach.
The office is done — as you can see from the feature photo. This week I added a couple lightweight storage bins — I’m tired of having cords hanging from all the cabinets. The hard drives are mounted and accessible. The graphics tablet is usable. I’m happy.
While I was happily working in the office Peggy has been staring at the corner of the lounge wondering how to make THAT area more usable. During one of our shopping forays she found a set of drawers and a nice matching basket and now the corner table deftly hides a few pillows and throws while the drawers will do a nice job of hiding a few papers and cords and what-nots. Hoorah for Progress!
