The Rain Song

Which is why you WON'T see me drinking it today! 

Too much to do!

I packed away 3 cabinets!  Yay!  Only 17 more cabinets, 10 more drawers, the counter 'stuff' and the refrigerator/freezer to go!!!  YAY!  

Heaven help me... what I have gotten myself into!!!  Am I insane?  ACK!  <sigh> 

It will get done, it will get done, it will get done...

Tomorrow, will be sunny, that will help!  I will open all the windows and the power of the sun will push me forward!  No rain to make me creaky and achey!!!  Yay!

Well, that's the plan... we'll see how it goes! 

Hammer and I did run out to Barnes & Noble and picked up the Jim Butcher book!  Yay!  I also got 2 other paperbacks, and he got one other.  We are both happy. 

Of course, Hammer is actually reading the Jim Butcher book, whereas I was packing up stuff, so he is happier than I am.  However, a rest is coming for me, and I will be snatching it from his hands momentarily!  LOL

April Fool's today and I totally got the kids.  Well, mostly Pumpkin!  Hubby called and although they heard the phone ring that was all they heard.  So, I went it to Fuzzy and Pumpkin and said, 'That was the PTO, school is canceled due to a water main break!'   Pumpkin exclaimed, 'YES!' and Fuzzy said, 'Really?' and then I laughed! 

Pumpkin told me she HATES April Fool's!  That would be because she falls for it each year!  LOL  Sometimes it is hard being the baby!  LOL

I got fooled too today by a friend in email!  I didn't scroll all the way down past her siggy where she wrote 'April Fools' so it was my own stupidity!  LOL

Hope you have a fun foolin' day!

be well,
Dawn

I was going to ask my mom if she wouldn't mind babysitting for another grandchild.  I was going to tell her I was pregnant.  She would have killed me.  LOL  Julie :)

LOL, poor Pumpkin! I was going to tell my son on his way out the door for work this morning at 5:20 (has to be at work at 6:00) "oh, by the way, I forgot, work said you didn't have to be in until 8:00 this morning" but I was kinder; did tell him to watch out for April Fool's jokes

good job on the packing!

Hi Dawn,
That April Fool's joke of yours seems to be just a triffle "harsh."  Naturally, your story was just believable enough to get them going ... good job!  I can imagine their momentary feeling of excitement -- "oh, goody, a day off" -- and then the ultimate let down ...
Best,
Marty

Good luck with packing, it sucks, I know, I've been there !!! Just be organized, it's the best advice I can give. When you find your living out of those boxes during the remodel !
My mom played the SAME joke on us for April Fool's day  a long time ago !!!
Big hugs,
Ellen

Ugh the packing sounds gruesome but soooo worth it in the end!!!  Good April Fool on the kids, I didn't get or give any this year.

You are never too old to fall for an April Fools joke, just ask Doc (winks). I told him I was pregnant (at a soon to be 43 that ain't happening) and the look on his face was priceless, he totally believed me. Until I asked him what day it was. The thing is the numbskull has fallen for the same line 3 years in a row...I'm getting bored with it now. (Hugs) Indigo
