Day 33 - Button(s)

Oh dear, i am having one of those days.. i cant make up my mind about anything, ive had a pounding headache all day, im miserable and crabby... and i was ever so tempted to skip a day in my challenge! but my conscience won over, so i made an effort to finally come up with a photo for buttons...

I really, really wanted to take a photo of a panic button, but i couldnt summon the courage or energy to go out in search for one, then it crossed my mind that i could put a photo of CJ on here, as his nickname was "button" when he was little (he earnt his nickname because he used to hoover up chocolate buttons, if i laid a trail of buttons, he would follow it, picking each one up ever so carefully)... next was the obvious choice of finding any old button on clothes, or raiding the button box that has somehow filled up..

None of those really were the "right thing"... in the end, i spotted our collection of buttons... yes, it confuses me which buttons go with which appliance and i often find myself turning on the projector when im really wanting to watch a dvd.. or the stereo starts blasting the last song i listened to instead of me changing the channel.. what is even more infuriating is the fact that buttons have this tendency to just "disappear", poof gone... then the hunt begins, accompanied by many "who was the last to have the buttons" and "have you checked in the bathroom/kitchen/under the kids' beds/in the dog basket/under the sink/next door"...
