We bought a new house today and I'm trying to figure out where I'm going to put the 'puter. I don't want it in the guest room/office anymore b/c I want to use my grammy's furniture that I inherited (currently in storage) and make a proper guest room. The other bedrooms will be for DH and me, DS, and my future nursery. So, that leaves our room, the playroom, or the family room.

Thoughts? I thought I'd be nosy and see where y'all keep your 'puters. We won't move until Jan so I've got some time to think about it.

Thanks DJ! Actually, we close on New Year's Eve and will move some time in January. DS's b-day is 1-30 and I'm hoping we'll be able to have his b-day party at our new house! We're not selling this place, we're keeping it as a rental property. (So I guess I'm going to WAH now, as my "job" will be managing the rental property.)

I'm going to start packing soon though--not looking forward to that, but at least there is no pressure on us having to empty out this place right away for a sale!

We have a room designated as the office. Its really a combo office/tv room/guest room. I got a small loveseat that folds out, and we have a tv up there and all the kids movies, etc. along with the computer.

At our old house we had the computer in our bedroom, which was fine too (it was a huge bedroom).

I personally dont care to have the computer sitting out in the middle of a general room in the house (just doesnt go with my decor, LOL!). So I wouldnt ever put it in the family room or living room-maybe the playroom (if we had one!)

How fun to get a new house! Have you closed yet? Moving during the holidays! That is stressful!

Mine is in the library of my home. It is the most quiet room of the house and far from the bedrooms so if I can't sleep, I don't bother anyone.

I think it depends on when you use the computer and who uses it.


Right now, our computer is in our playroom.

Ours is in our great room (family room/dining room combo). It is in a computer armoire that looks like a beautiful piece of furniture. That way when we have company we cna close up the desk mess. We will always have it in a open location for the family. We like to make sure dd isn't anywhere she shouldn't be on the computer.

expanding is a tough decision, as you can price your house right out of the neighborhood, and never get what its really worth for resale. oooooo-oooooooo, that reminds me....dh, my mom and i were having a conversation the other night, and dh *FINALLY* verbalized what he would like to do in the future. i have absolutely hated charlotte since the day we moved here, and dh has absolutely refused to move, hence, my marriage has not been "marital bliss", like i sometimes jokingly say it is. anyhooooo, dh said, he wants to move to the beach!!! dd is in wilmington, nc and so is my best friend i was telling you about. i would be in hog heaven if and when it happens. the new job dh is taking is one where we can live wherever we want, so i think the plan will be, let ds2 finish hs where he is, and then move to the coast. i am beside myself that dh even came out and said it. i really miss the coast and really want to get back there.

with all that said, we are not going to do another thing to our house, as it is on the high end of our neighborhood as it is. we shouldnt have a problem selling it, as it is a way cool floor plan and we have a two level huge deck on the back with all natural area behind it making it very private. i do love this house, but i want a better location more. maybe we will find a house just as cool when we move.
