At 2,300 square feet, our condo is more than adequate for 2.5 people. The absolute best thing about our place? It has 4 bathrooms. This means that I can keep my interaction with Maya’s toothpaste covered sink to a minimum.
To whomever came up with this brilliant floor plan? Thank you.
Aside from my much-loved bathroom and closet I really have no space that belongs to me. Unless you count the small desk I consider my “office” in our den/Maya’s area to make a giant mess.
I will admit that I am pretty selfish with the 25 square feet allocated to me. But in my defense, one has to be selfish around here – it’s survival of the fittest. That’s why I’ve made it pretty clear that I don’t want anyone:
- Putting their dirty little feet on my desk. (Yes, this really does happen.)
- Sitting in my chair.
- Eating at my desk.
- Placing even so much as their pencil on my desk.
- Sitting under my desk. (Sigh.)
Apparently I have to add yet one more rule to my list…I do not want anyone standing next to my desk while simultaneously working on their computer, loudly chewing, and talking on speakerphone for 15 minutes straight.
No, I never thought I’d ever come up with such a lengthy and random rule either. But 10 years of marriage and a high-maintenance family will do that to you.
