The cords that run our life...

Last weekend we took a quick trip down to Las Vegas for Regan's dad's retirement party.  It was so nice to get out of the cloudy, smoggy, cold weather,  and be somewhere you could actually be outside for more than a minute.  I love getting together with his family.  They are great.  
I do have to say, I do have one complaint for the weekend.  I know its not that serious, but it's mine.   CORDS AND CHARGERS.  I hate 'em.  If I heard one more time, "Mom, do you know where my charger is?" I was going to kill myself.  
Let me share the inventory with you: (keep in mind, we were gone away from our home for less than 48 hours)
-3 phones with their accompanied chargers
-3 ipods with one computer chargers and one wall charger, 
-3 sets of headphones (more cords)
-2 Nintendo DS's with one wall charger and one car charger
-1 laptop with charger
-2 cameras, one charger
-1 aux cord to hook ipod to car stereo
-1 dual headphone port (so 2 can watch the 2" movie on the ipod)

More and more cords.  Everywhere I looked there where cords.  And every child was looking for his or her cord.  
I obviously have issues.  

I took this picture after unloading "the backpack". 
* It does not include any of Madi's cords.  I guess she likes to keep hers separate.

Ain't technology GREAT! I can remember when my parents said, "Grab something to do in the car." and that meant a book or coloring book and crayons.... and now we wouldn't think of leaving without our ipods or laptops huh!

I'm glad you did'nt hang yourself with the cords and had a great weekend anyway!

That is so funny... :) When we went out of town last, Rob brought his own power strip! How do we survive? Las Vegas sound good right now... Did you even bring jackets? I need sunshine and warmth!!!
