Dorothy, I have that thick clear flexible vinyl sheeting that came in 54" wide bolts (with a detached paper backing) at the fabric store and cut it to length for the various work tables (kitchen, tall kitchen work table, and the dining room table). It can be folded up and set aside or table cloths can be spread out over it. I just looked at Joann and find various gauge thicknesses. I probably got 16 or 20, just because it seemed more durable, but I'd have to look in the store to compare for sure. I know, it is reminiscent of crinkly plastic covers our grandparents put over the sofa and armchair back in the 60s, but it's less conspicuous and more practical.
Good luck getting the mirrored piece of furniture monstrosity out of the house quickly!
More bits of paper cleared off of my office work spaces, some filed, some noted on the spiral binder, others simply tossed. Office supplies discovered and organized.
I set up my HDMI monitor to give sound and use my web cam today for a conversation and to share screens (using the app you may have heard of - GoToMeeting - I've figured out how to make it work after a couple of meetings with it.) Since I've set that up again I'm thinking of once again removing the separate speakers on my desk, though I like having the box behind the monitor that offers the base sound. I think I turned off the monitor sound because it wasn't very loud, but there are two adjustments and I think I wasn't addressing both (monitor volume and computer volume). That would give me a little more room on the physical desktop.
