Being Sabotaged


Remember last week when I showed you my new
charging station I made for The Mister?
I removed the bird cage, assembled a table,
hung a chalkboard and bought a beautiful lamp and bamboo
 tray that holds all the USB cords and devices in a neat, orderly way.
  It's right inside the back door where he can throw his keys, wallet
and phone down and there is plenty of space to charge 
all of his other devices all at once.

Two days later he said he saw these cool outlets that had
USB connections built right in!  He had ordered 5 of them to
put throughout the house from Amazon Prime.
I wasn't really sure why we needed them....not with the
newly designated, convenient station I just set up, but he
was excited, so what the heck, right?



Um.  Well.... here's his Kindle, charging in the kitchen.
Why, I ask?  lol.  Obviously, the man doesn't appreciate
my new years resolution of having a place for everything
and everything in its place.  I think I'm fighting an uphill
battle on this one.  Yep, I really do!   :)

  2. They are some work sometimes. lol When you find something charging other than on the station move it to the station. Sooner or later it might sink in. We have to choose battles with this kind of stuff though. Just depends on how workable and well trained he is. ; )

  5. I don't think he's the only man who knows that a thing belongs wherever you put it down!

    1. Yes, I did. haha. Most of his things are still on the charging station, though, so maybe there is still hope. :) I did have to laugh, though, that the kitchen was the landing spot for that Kindle.

  7. I feel your pain, and think your charging station is a great idea.
    Around here, a clear, flat space just seems to call out, "Help, I'm empty!" And sure enough, someone is more than willing to help. :-)

    1. Isn't that the truth? Some people like me notice those piles and try to cure them...others create the piles and don't see the problem. haha.

  8. Hi Betsy - he enjoyed his find and he's deployed them ... a Kindle in a kitchen ... that's worse than a book amongst the icing sugar! Ah well .. and you're right perhaps he'll notice in due course and things will change - you can use the charging station all for yourself! Happy week ... cheers Hilary

    1. Well, I have my desk and laptop and everything charges there like it always has. Yes, he did enjoy his find! Those plugs will be great when the big kids come home and need spots to charge their phones, so it's all good.

  18. I'm totally agreeing with you on this one- my husband loves to unload everything and I mean EVERYTHING out of his pockets right on my kitchen bar. It doesn't matter how many times I complain- he keeps doing it. ARGH!
