How I spent the Presidents Day Holiday Weekend...

Eric's office in Berkeley BEFORE my intervention.



Insert loving wife of nearly 20 years, laden with cleaning supplies...



Fourteen hours, x2 people, spread across 2 days, leads to... AFTER!!!



Please note the absence of dust!



Ta-daa!!!

I have a strong feeling a compromise was made. The at home den will survive.

It looks AMAZING Angela, well done, but how will poor Eric cope now? Nothing will be where he left it, productivity will take a dive ;)

LOL, top job though :)

Oh, Angela, what have you done.

Probably put back all of the projects he was working on 6 months, plus causing poor Eric much stress.

Will he be able to get over it.

You have my sympathies Eric, similar things have been done to me in the past, and if I got out of bed on the wrong side I probably said things that cannot be repeated here.

The funny thing is, we're all saying the same, but at the same time, Eric is so blessed to have a wife like Angela.

Eric actually asked me to help. There is a visiting scientist, arriving today from another university, who will need to use the second desk in Eric's office for about a month. Eric's office needed to be a bit more er... uh... welcoming!

I wonder how many times Eric has tripped over something, ended up with a bin on one foot, a box on the other and falling out the window.
