Awhile back when we moved Marissa downstairs, we also moved the Captain and I into the front bedroom and Maren to to the back bedroom. The front bedroom shares a wall with our TV room and when the girls were in that room we could never stay up and watch a movie at an appreciable volume level without waking them up. The front bedroom also had a nicer walk-in closet. Bingo.
The problem with this closet was the way it was organized. It just had two small, short areas for hang-ups on either of the shorter side walls. The longer back wall had a shelf, but no place to hang things. Talk about wasted space. So finally this weekend, after about a year or so of cursing the mismanaged space, we remedied that situation. Well, I'll say the Captain mostly remedied that situation. I would walk in, cough, sneeze, drill a couple holes, look pathetic, cough and go back to sit in my recliner. Repeat. Looked something like this. Why I am taking pictures of my closet is a little beyond me. It's what we do here in Iowa in the depths of winter?
Anyway, here's the before: (forgot to take an actual before picture with everything still hanging in the closet, but I'll be darned if I was going to hang them back up again)
And the after. Isn't it beautiful. And organized. And beautifully organized. Sometimes I go sit in there and shut the door and quietly talk myself in to thinking that the rest of my life is as such.
Here's the Captain's side. As seen by his little Captain's hat up on the top shelf. What a stud. But do you see that bright purple sleeve hanging there on the left?
Here it is again. Guess what that sleeve is attached too?
HIS BRIGHT PURPLE SNUGGIE.
That he bought for himself. Pretty sure that makes him undateable. He also occasionally wears socks with sandals (black socks even), has a pair of jorts (think I bought them for him), has a cell phone protector on his belt, wears shiny pointy black shoes to work, and owns a speedo (tells me he used to be a "swimmer"). Undateable, and then some.
But, that does make him mighty fine marriage material. Thanks for the closet, honey!! Thanks for taking care of things when I was/am sick! Have a good trip and see you soon!
