Practically perfect in every way...

I know that I'm not perfect, and I know that I can be annoying (who me?!), frustrating (never!), and sometimes bitchy (mood swings? Unheard of!). In spite of these things, my husband loves me; I know this to be true. And (admittedly) unlike myself, he's very good at keeping criticism to himself.


Yesterday, while cleaning, I gathered up all the DVD cases and random loose DVDs that have been floating around our house for the past couple of months.

This picture tells you two things: (1) I have an unhealthy obsession with Gilmore Girls (all but two of those loose DVDs are from different GG seasons), and (2) I really suck at putting DVDs away. It's one of the only things that The Hubs will actually (in his gently nudging way) complain about. I leave DVDs in the player, on top of the player, on top of the TV, next to the TV, close to the TV, and just about anywhere but in the case and on the shelf.

So I gathered them all up, and on my third (yes, third) trip carrying DVDs into the living room from our bedroom, The Hubs said, "Where the hell were those?! I didn't even see them in there!"

Oopsie...remember that you love me, honey!

But, in the end, I made good and everything was back where it belongs. All the DVDs were in their cases and back in alphabetical order on the shelves.

And all was right with the world. At least until I decide to watch the whole Gilmore Girls series again.

(I love you, honey!)

I totally need those DVD holders. We have stacks and stacks of DVD's all over the house because we don't have room for them. I put mine away, hubby doesn't. So it's like the opposite of you and your hubby. Ha.

LOL...we all have our issues, I guess. We got those at Best Buy...they were a little expensive - around $90 each, but we really needed them and had gift cards to burn. :)

Verry jelly of all those DVD..*cough cough*...Gilmore Girls and Friends..*cough cough*
I also have the problem of just stacking them on top of the DVD the point once that I had 3 stacks and when I tried to put just one more up there they all fell.
