So, we're hibernating inside our blessedly cool house today. I'm feeling very thankful for our AC window units. It's not central air, but it's certainly better than no air.
I'm babysitting my friend's 2 little girls today. So, with 6 kids pretty much confined to the house today we are breaking out of our typical daily routine. Currently 5 of them (the baby is taking a nap) are draped across the couches eating popcorn & watching the kid's movie 'Bolt'.
Brain power & energy levels are on low today, so this post will be short & sweet. For your amusement I thought I'd share some examples of other times my brain power has been on low.
Some Things I Used To Think (But Have Since Been Properly Educated):
- I used to think espresso was spelled & pronounced expresso
- I used to think that a central vacuum system was an extremely strong suction system whereby you flipped a switch & all the dirt was sucked into suction vents throughout the house.
- I used to think that the name of legendary jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald was Ellafitz Gerald.
- I used to think that the signs reading "No Vacancy" at motels actually read "No Bikinis" (Ok - that one is from when I was a kid...I could never understand why people with bikinis weren't allowed at those motels).
