We have too much of it. K spent the weekend beating our bedroom and the hall closet into shape, and much of the excess stuff has made its way into our computer room. This stuff will hang around for another two weeks, when we are planning to have a garage sale and get rid of all of it.

That which does not sell gets donated. The stuff goes. Once the garage sale weekend is done I don’t want to see it anymore. Yes, it means giving away some things that may have value to someone if we can just find the right person, but enough is enough. We need to get our house back.

Over the course of this week and the weekend, I plan on tackling the laundry room and the shed.

We also shed a lot of stuff in WoW this week. More to the point, we walked away from the guild alliance that we’ve had for about a year now and started doing things “on our own.” I put “on our own” in quotes because we still have a few players from that alliance tagging along with us, but we’re doing it our way now. We’re using a new loot distribution method (called Suicide Kings) that is incredibly fast and easy to use, we’re signing up on the Children of Midian (name of our guild) boards, and the majority of the people going are in CoM. This last Sunday we went into Zul’Gurrub, a 20 player dungeon, with 19 players – 15 of those players were from our guild. We took down four bosses, including one we had never fought before (Gri’lek from the Edge of Madness event) that wiped our party twice before we figured out the encounter. Not bad at all, considering the fact that 3 of those players had never even been to Zul’Gurrub before.

Yeah, it was nice.

Things are still a little crazy in game with the other guilds. The main guild we were allied with has proceeded to implode in the wake of our leaving. I feel a little guilty about that, as it almost seems like it’s our fault, but I know that’s not really the case. It was going to happen eventually anyway. I think our leaving was just the final straw on an overburdened camel’s back.

In other WoW news, I pre-ordered my copy of the Burning Crusade this morning. I actually managed to get the Collector’s Edition, even though Amazon (according to the web site) has already sold out. I already had it in my cart, though, and it let me place the order. We’ll see what really happens. I’m going to pay extra for next day shipping as well. I was going to get free super saver, but then I realized that would be a week of people teasing me with new content I couldn’t see, and we can’t have that.

Taking part in a weight loss challenge with etcet and a few other guys in the IT department here at work. We call our team “Shrink Geek.” I’m not really doing anything out of the ordinary as part of this, though. Just trying to stay on track with Weight Watchers. Was down a good bit last week, which was nice. Hopefully the trend will continue.

The boys continue to take lackluster care of their pets, regardless of the fact that I have emphasized that they are rapidly nearing a point where they are going to lose them. I think, at this point, I’m going to take one final step towards making sure the cats are properly cared for. I’m going back to chore calendars for the boys, and cat maintenance will be part of it. So will their other chores, of course, but the cats are a big one.

The weather recently has been absolutely stunning. Those few days a year that make living in Florida worthwhile (weather wise).

And since I’m talking about the weather, it’s time to go….
