46. Spring Cleaning

Have you ever thrown everything out of a closet while looking for something? I have. Today I was looking for a cd I knew I had and cleared out our CD cabinet. The coffee table is now piled high with CDs.

I’d been planing on straightening it out anyway. So here is my chance. I’m also ripping all the CD’s I care about and putting them on an ultra portable hard drive – so they are readily accessible to whatever computer I may be using.

I’ve even found some CD’s we will probably donate. The kids don’t like Aaron Carter anymore, and Dean never liked the Sugar Cubes CD I gave him. I’m also planning on storing most of my Dan Bern bootlegs elsewhere. There is not enough space for all of them.

There were also some CDs I’d forgotten we had. For instance – the soundtrack to Room With a View.

I liked the movie okay- although I only saw it once – but I’ve not listened to the soundtrack in 15 years. I bought it for one specific reason – to listen to while I gave birth. However the music did nothing for me at the time – just made me cranky. I think a character on Thirtysomething used it as her labor music, so I, being also a thirty-something woman who was about to go through labor, thought it would help me. Nope – Kate Bush helped me more.

I just listened to some of the soundtrack. I still am not all that impressed – and I’m not even giving birth.
