Electronic Mess

Believe it or not, I am an organized person who keeps a neat, clean home. This is a picture of the state of my office for the last few days. I'm old enough to remember when I had a little manual typewriter in a cute little black case that I proudly took to college. Now I have a desktop computer and a new laptop computer, two printers, a router, a label maker, a camera docking station, a Palm Pilot docking station, a USB hub, not to mention mouse, keyboard and monitor, all of which need to be plugged in. Oops, mustn't forget the lamps and shredder that also need to be plugged in - plus the cable modem, the TV and the telephone.

And since I am switching to using the laptop as my main computer, I need to eventually remove the desktop but keep the keyboard and monitor because they will be plugged into the Notebook QuickDock.

I love using the Internet and E-mail, but there are times when I get nostalgic for the little manual typewriter - and having only one thing plugged into each outlet in my home.
