Did I do that?

I cleaned so many clothes yesterday that I almost broke the house! 
Fromm Hubbie's Blog:
"Had a "oh, no, the air conditioning at the house isn't working" moment last night. Fortunately I got lucky and diagnosed the issue after only two hours of rising heat. "
One of the comments in response:

"Barry, you have to change your a/c filter. Best every two weeks during July and August. Dirty filter = iced up unit. SEER rating of a unit is only with a new filter in the system. As dust builds up it gradually blocks air flow and the efficiency of the system goes downhill.

Energy tip of the day: Don't run your clothes dryer when it is 100 degrees outside. A clothes dryer pumps cool 70-degree air out of your house. The resulting low pressure sucks 100-degree air into your house. 100% of the cool air in an average 1200 square foot house is sucked out every hour the dryer is running. So dry your clothes early in the morning or move you dryer into your garage."

I might have washed, dried, folded, hung and put away about 7 loads of clothes yesterday

A Moment Like This

It's very possible I would consider selling my soul to the devil for this house. 

No, I wasn't house hunting - it's Kelly Clarkson's house that she just put up for sell for only 1.495 million.

It has two pools - one for diving and another just for lap swimming! When's the next American Idol auditions? I wanna sign up.

If the property listing boasts dual master bedrooms - does that mean I get one and Mr. LL gets the other? I'm not sure what I would do without being woken up with his sleep talking, sleep yelling and sleep singing. Oh, and the latest -- he slammed his pillow on the floor by his side of the bed and yelled out "Sic' Em"! (Baylor Bears)

Last night while throwing the softball around, my older girl and I realized we had the same type of shoe.
Both purchased at separate times and different places. It seems as though we have the same taste in shoes.
Made me giggle.

I'll report back.
