The Great Office Migration

It has been four crazy days here in the House 'o Wombat.

We moved Kevin's office downstairs, and I took possession of the entire finished room over the garage, which is enormous and NOW IT'S ALL MINE.

(I have been coveting this space for YEARS.)

This table is made of an unfinished door bolted to four storage-unit-with-drawers thing. The units aren't terribly cheap, depending on the kinds you get, but the door was a mere $26.

Brandon the Border Collie, who is supposed to be the real beneficiary of all this, is not sure WHAT to think. His person is downstairs! And not going back upstairs! But people live upstairs during the day! But his person is downstairs!

He is dealing with this confusion by sulking at the top of the stairs. Today he moved to sulking at the bottom of the stairs, which I think counts as the first step to acceptance.

While we were running around frantically moving bookcases, the very nice people at the JSquared Concept were running around frantically getting my new website up and running. (If you're reading this on redwombatstudio.com then you've probably noticed!) It is shiny and has better shopping carts and all the useless links and no-longer-available merch went away. Most importantly, it is optimized for mobile devices and looks far better on them. (There will be some tweaking in the next few weeks--a couple of the headers are placeholders until I can get better art up, but I'm in mid-Dragonbreath, so we're making do.) (If you only follow on LJ, then it doesn't matter, carry on as you are. *grin*)

On top of all that, we're trying to upgrade the server, which has been running very slow because A) it's old and B) somebody out there keeps trying to crash it and turn it into a zombie server or something. *shakes tiny fist*

And also the latest Dragonbreath art, all 160 illustrations, are due today. And I should be working on that, not blogging.

So...err...pardon our current dust!
