Sometimes it’s the little things that create the most chaos. This week’s project may not seem like a huge deal, but controlling our media madness is definitely going to be time well spent. The problem is that there are DVDs, games, and VHS tapes scattered all over our house. They are being trampled, scratched, and just ruined. Zander has a VHS/DVD player in his bedroom, and the disks rarely get treated with the love and respect they need in order to survive. We have a Wii, and the games are always hard to find amid the collection of random disks that gather on the top of the media center. It’s just a mess. We also have movies that we NEVER watch and most likely will never watch again.
The X-Box in the drawer there hasn’t been plugged up since we got the Wii about three Christmases ago. We got it free from a friend, and it’s time to pass it on. I’m not sure what half of those cords go to, but since they’re not plugged up and we’re not missing anything important, I can assume that they’re not needed. The movies down here are pretty much just used for drag-it-out toys by the baby.
As you can see, my son is following our example of organization. His media center is in as much chaos as ours.
