Fighting disorganization and clutter
Before my trip to IKEA yesterday I mused on what in the world would help put this place more in order. I couldn't really decide and then.......Sandy emails about the children's choir listening to some of the Ft. Wayne Children's choir recordings while she is gone to hear what a choir sounds like. SO.........thank you Sandy, I was thinking it might be really nice to have some place for our cds to call home. (If you give a mouse a cookie.......) At the moment they are here, there and everywhere and with that email I sort of pulled my hair out some wondering where my cds were at the moment! I ended up getting a dvd, cd shelf and another book shelf which will move out of the 'new' room when Charley gets the book shelves done sometime soon. I can never have too many book shelves and when I do I will start passing them on to the kids as they get places of their own. I also ended up getting a somewhat 'rough' looking shelving unit to put some of our larger appliances on rather than have them crammed in the kitchen cabinet. I am VERY excited to clear out some stuff and get other things organized. So far so good, the kids have enthusiastically collected all of their DVDs and brought them to the new shelves and I am going to have loads of fun going through the CDs and figuring out that mess. Goodwill is going to get some donations after this.
