Week 7 and 8: Redecorating and Door County


This last week, Steve and I worked together to reorganize our apartment.

The last few weeks, we have been sitting back to back at our desks. We both get very easily distracted, and Steve works from home, so we made the decision to move my desk into the bedroom.
