Sorry, it's been too humid to post. (100% humidity friends, thank you hurricanes) My brain has melted.

But for your entertainment, here's some rejected posts I almost started:

1. The one about how Sir O took a pair of scissors to the couch cushions.
2. The one about the Captain's healthy (rampant) separation anxiety.
3. The one about the kooky effects of long-term sleep deprivation.
4. The tales of my from scratch dinners of late, with some recipes nobody but me would be crazy enough to try.
5. The one where I debate what in the world I should do with my hair... since ignoring it doesn't seem to be working for me.
(I've got the loveliest mom-halo right about now)
6. The one where I ramble endlessly about how Sir O needs a back yard with a fence and how that would solve most of my problems.
7. The one where I detail all the cleaning and organizing I've been doing/trying to do/intending to do.
8. The one where I tell you how much fun we've been having making homemade popsicles and cutting almost everything we eat into shapes.
9. The one where I tell you that Mr Renn has applied to 5 residencies, and I hope to know in about 5 months where we'll be moving to in about 9 months.
10. The one where Sir O has started placing deliberate choking hazard-like objects all over the floors of the apartment?
11. The one where I hope we can still be friends, even though I didn't get around to composing any of these........

I love the list, especially after talking to you yesterday and hearing of these great adventures in your life. Sometimes, it's nice to have a list of what's going on since there are so many and each little line is quite descriptive for those with imaginations. :)

btw, thanks for the blogging tip! I will continue to try to post my non-interesting life events that truly are quite interesting when put in just the right way. hee, hee.

Scissors? To the couch? Yikes!

Where are the residencies he's applying for?

Sweet, I never thought to put all my "almost posts" up. And there you did it, all in one post. Nice and informative.

Good enough! I forgive you! As the saying goes, "you've got your hands full."

If Renn wanted to come do a 5th year Fellowship in KC we know of a few guys that have done it. And we also know of a great place to live! Do it! Do it! Do it! AND, we'd both finish at the same time. :) I love it here!

This is probably one of my favorite blogs of all time! Too funny! You really are welcome to come use our yard anytime. And someday you'll realize that the 100% humidity kind of takes the yard out of the equation of happiness!

My life is just a pile of lists too. Lists to do, lists to finish, lists to blog about etc etc on and on! I love your blog!

I can just imagine. I wouldn't mind reading any of those. And sad news about the couch + scissors episode. That doesn't sound good.
