?


How on earth does one deal with all these wires? I got one suggestion to take zip ties and roll the cords as small as possible and attach to the back of the desk. It's very difficult to clean when they are taking over the desk and floor like this. Ergh!


I am very distracted from blogging, reading and many activities...and am focused on this book I mentioned a couple days ago Apartment Therapy: The Cure. Both Stagg and I are reading it. He has a new copy and I got a copy from the library. We both took a quiz about how we felt about the apartment and living space and we had the same answer...here it is...

Weak. Energy drain. Visible problems in need of work have probably been put off for some time.

Ouch. I think the good news we both got the same result. But I have to wonder after all my organizing and housework I regularly do...what am I doing wrong that makes my place not feel like its supporting what we want/like doing. The thing is though...only after one week of reading the book and beginning some of it's exercises...our apartment is WAY more comfortable. Hoefully we can only make it more so in the coming weeks of the exercises in this book.

Now...to deal with those bloody cords...what would you do?

paper towel tubes is a GREAT idea!

You can get a product made just for that purpose. It's about the diameter of a vacuum cleaner hose and usually it's white with a bellows-like flex structure. It opens up and you lay the wires in and it coils back in on itself leaving all your wires in one white tube.

I echo Mister Anchovie's suggestion these coils really work. The alternative is a gadgetless existence!
