It’s been awhile since I posted anything and my brain is too tired to think of anything too cohesive or clever today, so I guess I’ll just toss out some random bits and see if it makes any sense.

Today is Day 2 of the Air Conditioning/Furnace/Basement Vent Installation. Our a/c went out…oh…a couple months ago? Maybe not that long, but it sure has felt like it! Over a month, anyway. Most of the time it’s been fine, with fairly cool weather. But several days have been torturous with very warm temps and high humidity. Monday night I finally broke down and we invited ourselves over to my in-law’s house to escape the 80+ degrees and 61% humidity inside our house. So, anyway, I am very happy that they are here working. We’re getting a new a/c unit & condenser, high tech thermostat, furnace and some vents put into the finished basement area, which has none currently. We’re seeing this as an investment…and let me just say that we really need to sell a LOT of stuff at our upcoming garage sale!

Speaking of which, I am still working on the de-cluttering project. It’s kind of an ongoing thing, but I’m kicking it up a notch. I got about 1/4 of the garage sorted out and swept. There is still stuff there, but I know what it is and I got rid of a bunch of stuff that wasn’t needed. Like about 50 empty boxes. I may have found some other garage sale items out there. I also have about 8 boxes ready to be priced – mostly kid’s clothes. We’ve set a date for the sale, so I have some motivation to get that stuff done soon.

Let’s see…what else have I been up to? I did a lot of weeding outside and I have more plants I started indoors to get outside. I need to get some bunny proof fencing first, though! Our little robin family has left their nest. I think one of the babies might be the dead one in the yard. :-( Our dog went after one of the babies (just playing, he didn’t hurt it) and about 5 robins were swooping in on him. He was oblivious. Then a couple days later a baby was on our deck and my youngest got too close to it and also became the target of the robin Secret Service. He was also oblivious. I was the recipient of some bird glares as they seemed to be warning me to keep MY babies under control. As if I could. Instead, we put our gazebo up on the deck so I can control the bird babies, or at least keep them from roosting so close to the house. That’ll show ‘em.

I’m currently baking some banana bread which I can’t wait to eat. I made a small loaf last week on a cooler day (can’t use the oven on a hot day with no a/c!) and ate it very fast. So I’m making twice as much today. It smells soooo good!

I know there were several things that happened that I was going to blog about but I can’t remember them now. For your amusement, here is a sign that there is too much Star Wars going on at our house. This morning I gave my youngest a good-morning hug and he wanted a kiss. He gave me a BIG smooch and said, “That’s what Princess Leia does to Han Solo. Then at the end there is a big noise.” (enter smoochie noise here) I’m not quite sure what to make of that. I should probably be bothered, but he’s so cute…I’ll take Princess Leia kisses as long as he wants to give them to me. :-)

And now, for my last item, I found this little i-pod meme at Don’t Try This At Home, and I thought it looked like fun and was appropriately random for today. For the record, I don’t own an i-pod. I have a 4 GB Sansa. I don’t have too many songs on it yet, so this could be an interesting little exercise. I also have several music videos which won’t show up as part of the shuffle, so that also limits the responses.

1. Put your music player on shuffle.
2. Press forward for each question.
3. Use the song title as the answer to the question even if it doesn’t make sense. NO CHEATING!

Well, that was fun, wasn’t it? Obviously I need to do this again after I get more of my music loaded up. At least you know I wasn’t kidding about liking Nichole N. :-) And yes, I am still slightly obsessed with 80′s music.

Some of these are quite accurate. Like my favorite saying. I don’t know that “True” is my favorite, but I *do* say it quite a bit as a complete sentence. Some are a bit odd and obviously not intended for a married mom…but they are still kind of cool.

If anybody else does this, let me know. I’d like to see yours!
