It's a secret entrance!

We are replacing the air conditioner  right now.

Jonathan just opened the crawl space where a floor furnace used to be.

Owen yelled, "There's a secret entrance!"

Alex yelled, "It's a secret passage way!"

I think I need to confiscate the Scooby-Doo DVD's.

Going down in a BLAZE of glory. Literally.

Sunday evening it was a little warm in our house.  I asked JR if he would rather I turn on the attic fan and open some windows or turn on the a/c and suck out some humidity.  He was cuddling CAR, so I wanted him to be comfy (she's a sweaty baby).  We haven't run our a/c much so far this year and JR said to turn on the a/c for a few minutes.

2 minutes after turning it on Jackson said, "Hey Mom!  The air conditioner is on fire."  I look and the fan is spinning and flames are coming out of the top.  I ran and turned off the thermostat.  JR and I ran out and got the water hose and dowsed the unit.  It didn't blow the fuses either.  I don't know how.  Needless to say I went and disconnected the fuses in the box while JR continued to run the water hose.

Hey at least my ducts didn't catch on fire.  Also for the record the central heat and air unit is older than I am (over 31 years old).  I should be thankful it has worked the last 5 years.

One friend asked me why weird things always happen to me.  I'm not sure that they do, I think things sounds funnier coming from my kids.

This year...

...March didn't come in like a lion and go out like a lamb.

...April showers were rare and my May flowers came from watering my yard.

The one thing that is true and needs a rhyme is that May temperature fluctuations bring tornadoes, but I haven't been able to make it work yet.

Monday I received a text asking if my family was okay.  A tornado hit the edge of Norman.  My family is all great and no one was near it.  It just served as a reminder that the first 2 weeks in May are usually tornado weather.

My camera is charged and I'm ready to watch the sky (and then duck and cover).

I have a new brother now!

Not biologically.  My oldest sister eloped yesterday, while in Texas for business.  No, she didn't just meet her husband in Texas.  They've been dating for 2-3 years.  I'm not really sure how long, but for a while.

I asked if I could call him bro since we had no brothers.  Steve said I could call him whatever I wanted...that's pretty loaded.  Hahaha!


Also, smart.

She's officially for sale.

If this page isn't visible, just scroll to the right.  It works right in Google Chrome, but you have to scroll in internet explorer.

So is the parts car and all extra parts.
