Many months ago Ryan and I purchased a desk with one of the many Bed Bath and Beyond gift cards we got as wedding presents. For the last six months or so it has mainly been used as a shelf for my sewing machine and old magazines. Well, last week I had the genius idea to actually use it for its intended purposes–as a place to work. So I cleaned it off, put a light bulb in the lamp that has been sitting on it, set my laptop upon it and set to work. I used to always do my schoolwork at the kitchen table when I was at home, but now I’ve found I really enjoy working at this desk. It’s situated in front of two windows and so it is a bright spot, and it gives me something to look at if I am stuck on a problem and need to gaze out into space and ponder for a moment. Further, my back is to the rest of the house and so if it’s a mess, I can easily tune it out.
(Now you can see that my sewing machine is on the floor right next to the desk.) Also, there is a nice framed picture of one of Ryan and I’s engagement pictures to look at when I need to rest my eyes.
Should I have said “Ryan and mine”? Or is “Ryan and I’s” correct? “Ryan and mine” just sounds funny.
