Brian ended up pulling out all his belongings and going through EVERYTHING, which meant I had to do the same with mine. Now, the house looks pretty much zero cleaner (you know how "organizing" makes things worse before they're better?), but it is lighter, with Brian taking a (literal) truck load of stuff to Goodwill and after having dumped several large garbage bags into the dumpster. Whew! This Mama is TIRED!

Brian’s off craigslisting for me for me today. If I like what I see in person, we’ll be the proud owners of another couch. (And if I don’t like what I see, we’ll sell it ourselves.) My Mom commented recently that if we ever move away she’ll miss our entertainment value – our constantly changing assortment of furniture. What? I don’t know what she’s talking about. In our 7 years of marriage Brian and I have owned or borrowed only…
7 couches, 5 entertainment centers, 5 dining sets, 6 computer/office desks, 4 rocking chairs, and an assortment of other furniture from coffee tables to dressers to drafting tables. (Oh, and 6 vehicles plus a motorcycle.) Yeah, I don’t know what my Mom is talking about.

Apparently Brennan needed to make up some sleep debt. It’s 11:00am and I still haven’t seen him. I’ll have to wake him up when I’m done with this though to get him off to school :-)
One night about 2 weeks ago I really wanted the the boys to go to sleep sooner so I put Brennan in my and Brian’s bed to be moved after Brian got home from McGraths. Around 12:30am I went upstairs to put something away and saw that Asher’s light was on. When I entered, I had to smile when I saw his sleeping spot of choice.
About a week before that, Brian and I were getting ready for bed and when Brian opened our closet Asher came falling/stumbling out having been sleeping in the rubbermaid bucket of shoes. He said only “you woke me up!” accusingly as he grabbed his blanket and walked back to his own room.
I was standing holding this chair for about 30 seconds before noticing what was living in it in its folded position. I guess that’s why people usually put these chairs back in their bags.
