To the untrained eye this may seem to be just a computer cabinet with a steroid problem. To me it is the all new 'Sanity Restorer - Wire/Clutter Container' complete with flux capacitor.
Apparently I am going through the nesting stage a lot of third trimester women go through about, oh.... 16 months late. I have followed up my office project with home de-cluttering.
The irony is that in our family you would pick me as the clutter-bug first. I tend to leave 'the trail' around the house while my husband keeps his things in "neat" stacks, piles and boxes. And therein lies the problem. Where I will pitch, he will place in a box with the idea that he will see if he wants/needs said item later.
Later never comes.
A few weeks ago, I lost it. I had run into the corner of a box sticking out off a chair one too many times. We have GOT to do SOMETHING!!! And so we found 'something' at Ikea. I spent most of Saturday putting it together and finished off the doors and moving things from the dining room table today. I have learned a few lessons from this:
- Do not wait until you explode (duh).
- Sometimes I do know better and should push a bit on my ideas and purchases for the family.
- Do not rant and rave about needing and then ultimately purchase a big ticket item right around your birthday, 'cause that is all you're gonna get.
I do not care... it was worth it.
