This weekend, our family is getting ready for a celebration.
It is the celebration of our son making the choice
to begin his military career.
We decided to open our home
and allow all that would like, to come and
help us wish him Godspeed.
I KNOW!!! a gauming mess!!
Because I hate cords and more cords, I knew something had to be done!
and I hate people coming into my home
and seeing a gaum, ( my word for a mess).
Years ago my sister gave me a box that I have just sat around for decoration.
Of Course, it didn't decorate my couch, just put it there for the picture.
I had my husband drill holes in the sides and back......
and then I put a power strip in it... and 'boxed' my excess cords.
This is my school area, so cords are a necessity.
The other 'corded' gaum I showed you earlier is in my bedroom
for all my hair fixing stuff.
Which I was using to fix one of my little one's hair for prom...
This is a before picture and I forgot to get an after,
but I just love her pretty smile...
Anyways...... To get rid of the cord mess
I screwed a hook into the bottom of my vanity.
I then hung my extension cord from it.
and now.... no more clutter, well at least for these cords.
Just in case you are wondering.....
I did push in the drawer and dust the furniture.
I also took my life into my own hands by capturing and destroying
the dust monsters all over my floor.
So I guess I am semi-ready for tomorrow....
but I don't know that I will ever be ready for the day he leaves...
