Warning! If you are not easily amused.... This post will POSITIVELY bore you. There. At least I warned you. He he.

First of all, I did not get to play in the sewing room yesterday....I was recruited to PAINT for our "project". I really don't like painting, but somebody had to do it. Today I am putting my home office back together. I can't wait to give you the whole tour, it's one of my favorite places!

What's up with all these cords? Yuck!!! I just couldn't leave them like that, could I? I found some of those stick-on hooks and hid them under the desktop.

Much better, don't you think? You may (or may NOT) be wondering what on earth all of these cords go to. Let's see. On my desk I have: laptop, monitor, 2 speakers (cords to connect them and to the laptop), phone (3 cords! --power, phoneline, headset), external hard drive, photo printer, cord to "real" printer, cordLESS key board and mouse (but they DO have a receiver that plugs in). That's a lot of cords. Which is funny when you think about all of the supposED cordless items that DO have cords. It's AMAZING...right? (If you haven't watched that video--scroll down--...otherwise you will miss my attempt at humor.)

This is what you DON'T see around the corner of the desk. Ugh. I don't EVEN know what to do about this. Nothing I guess. Nobody can see it except for me.

As I started to put every thing back together, I came across these. What the heck? I'm that person who is always telling people to label all of their cords. I don't have a clue what these go to.

Wait! One of them goes to my Beautiful Crystal Award that my company gave me 5 years ago when I became a Crystal Executive. It's very special to me. It lights up and turns around showing off the crystal. So. Which plug is it? The crystal base doesn't have any markings on it.

These are just the everyday cords that I keep in my top drawer. They are for my Ipod, camera and cell phone/pda.

Yesterday, I was looking for a cord to plug in to something old. I asked hubby if he knew where it was. He brought out his box of cords. You would NOT believe this unless you saw it. It had obviously been rummaged through many times and it was one big snarl. On a good note, I found the cord I was looking for, this involved a quick call to Radio Shack for confirmation. They are soooo helpful.

Admittedly I have my own cord "cache". I have tried and tried to keep it organized. Those cords, just LOVE to mingle.

Have you had enough yet?
No wonder the house goes so quiet when the power is out. Just think of all of these things that are ALWAYS plugged in!

I USED to have a bunch of cords in my kitchen for all the chargers. Then I found this little station. I bought it years ago and never even took it out of the box. Wow. It really did come in handy.

Isn't technology AMAZING? We are so lucky to be living in such an incredible time. Sometimes it's hard to just keep up.



  1. Wow!! I love that power station!! Where'd you get it?
    I can't wait to see your home office!! It's always so fun to redo a room!
    Have a great day!

  2. I know what you mean about all those cords. We have so many too.

  3. Oh I forgot, we have one of those crystal things too. Ours had a picture of an eagle on it. I think. Now I will have to go look and see what it really has. But not right now.
