I recently moved items around in the office, so that I had better access to a filing cabinet and because I was bored. Really, really bored.
It didn't take much work, I pushed my desk towards one wall, moved the filing cabinets around a little and all of sudden the room just opened up. I had space again!
Now, the scanner and lateral filing cabinet are accessible by a push of my feet and a roll of my chair. It's quite fun, especially with the plastic chair mat that makes rolling oh-so-easy.
The mat doesn't go far enough, though, and sometimes, to get to the vertical filing cabinet, I wind up rolling off and have a hard time getting the chair back on. Still, it's a little fun that makes the day better.
Yesterday, I was pushing myself around the office when all of a sudden I went flying one direction and the chair went the other. I'm not even sure how it happened. I literally pushed myself out of the chair. I caught myself before I wound up face first into the laser printer stand but for a moment I had this flash of black eyes and broken wrists. It wasn't pretty, that flash of premonition. I was glad for two things: 1 - that I was able to stop the disaster before it happened and 2 - that my office door was closed as I hurtled myself off the chair.
I'm a little more cautious today, as I roll back and forth between the scanner and the desk. I don't really need a repeat performance...but I can giggle about my close call with black eyes and broken wrists. It's all in a day's work! =)
