Yes, it was my decision that we needed one more child. And yes, it is my decision that we don't need a dog. 13 years of marriage and he still hasn't figured out that it's all about me and my needs.
Ok. Moving on. While the kids have their summer to-do list, I have a list of my own. Just a few minor areas in my house that need to be straightened up a bit. So a few days ago, Kenny went to find Little Mermaid for the girls and Tinkerbell was in its case... and so he searched high and low to find the Tinkerbell case only to discover Barbie and the Three Musketeers in its case... and he had a minor FIT because "nobody puts movies back in the right case around here!" It was then that I decided to move DVD organization to the top of my list.
First thing I did was to round up all of the DVD's from various spots throughout the house. And yes, I'm aware this is a ridiculous amount of DVD's, but if you know us, you know that our whole family enjoys a good princess/barbie movie now and again. And while we've no doubt wasted an obscene amount of money on these movies, when I think about the countless hours of peace and down time they have brought me over these crazy years of raising littles I say to myself -- well. worth. every. penny.
Kole was a DVD organizing maniac. I didn't expect anything less.
I went through EVERY DVD case and made piles. Piles of cases with the correct movie in them, piles of cases without the correct movie in them, piles of movies for the kids, piles of movies for us, piles of movies we don't watch anymore and can get rid of... piles, piles, and even more piles.
And then Kole came a long and destroyed all of my piles. I didn't expect anything less.
This is my "movies are in the wrong case" pile. I know. It's a problem. I'm working on it. Admitting it is always the first step.
But I am happy about having a check mark next to this little project on my list.
**And let me go on record as saying that while Kole may not actually be the best DVD organizer out there, he sure beats having a puppy. And at the end of the day, I think his daddy would have to agree. :)
