The laptop needed a home, as did the papers and magazines. So I decided to set up a little satellite office on our main level (and I've been singing Satellite by Dave Matthews ever since. like all the time its in my head). I've been yearning for a reason to purchase the Raskog cart from Ikea. Et voila! The opportunity presented itself. My little guy and I ventured out to the nearest Ikea (a quick hop skip 100 miles away). I had amassed a shopping list over the last few months, so this was going to be a very productive and worthwhile trip (it better be, gosh darn it).
The goods acquired. The requisite stuffing of 4 door sedan commenced. Then on to pick up the oldest munchkin from a sleepover at Grandpa's. Upon stepping foot in our home, I set to work on getting everything set up (am I the only one who can't bear to wait any longer than humanly necessary?). Luckily it was nap time, so there was no child neglect. I realized a couple minutes into it that I needed a second pair of hands. Nope, can't wait. So I rigged up a little cereal box and books action to hold up the part that needed holding. See, I wanted to flip the top basket of the Raskog upside down, so the laptop could sit on a flat surface, thus allowing easy access to the cords, etc.
So far, I lurve it! Do you have a Raskog? Did you get it in that gorgeous blue color? My neutral-loving soul just couldn't commit to that amount of color. What do you use it for? Where do you do your computer stuff - in front the TV, in bed? Do you have to plan months in advance before stepping foot in
