    From My Chair (noticed how I capitalized that), I have my TV in front, with my 75 gal a bit forward and to the right. The future dual 20 longs will be a bit forward and to the left. My TV is a crucial part of my tank/ living room. My tanks are designed around the TV. My seating is designed around the tanks.

    Forget about needing a bigger tank - I need a bigger living room with more wall space!!!!

    Kitchen table? WHAT kitchen table? Ours is always so cluttered up with hubby's papers there's no room on it to eat! We just grab whatever we want and eat in the livingroom. Of course, he has his own desk up in our loft, but will he USE it? NOOOOO.....

    BTW, the backs of the kitchen chairs are clothes racks ....

    Well, why in the world did you put your kitchen table in his office?!

    That's a whole 'nuther ballpark, or poll...

    Mine wants to do the same thing. It takes a lot of nagging, er, I mean work, to keep our kitchen table and chairs free of 'hubby clutter'. We actually gave him his own office downstairs several years ago. I didn't care if he used to work in...but thought he'd at least keep all his stuff in it.

    I don't think he used it once - in any way.

    We also have a functioning upstairs office. It's mostly 'mine' (since I'm the one that often works from home)...but he also has allotted storage space in it...and can use it if I'm not...and it's only 10' from the kitchen table. And...it's still a no-go too...

    However...what annoys me most...is that 'my' laptop...that I use for work and for my personal stuff...seems to be the go-to family computer. Even though 'they' each have their own - that I don't even think of touching.

    Hubby, for example, will take pictures (lots and lots of them)...and then get mad when I don't download them off his camera onto my computer and edit them...just the way he likes them edited. I'm working on putting a stop to that now...I think we're almost there...:D
