My apologies to those who have been visiting only to find that I haven’t posted in almost a week. My head is hanging right now. The kids’ activities have kicked up a notch now that spring’s here and my girls are in a school production of Peter Pan, so yeah, basically, NO TIME.
Did I say spring’s here? Because when I woke to see 3 inches of snow on the ground I thought that perhaps a rogue time turner had thrown me back to January. Seriously, it was snowing sideways at 7:00am. Maybe it was the weather gods’ idea of a prank on April Fool’s Day. I wasn’t laughing.
Speaking of April Fool’s Day, I've got nothin.’ Not that I usually plan any elaborate pranks. I'm usually the gullible victim of said pranks. I thought of waking the kids with, “No school today! Look outside!” But I couldn’t bring myself to do that to them. In fact, I prefaced my “Kids, time to get up,” with “This isn’t an April Fool’s joke....you have school even though it’s snowing.”
If you have or work with kids, today can be fun. My 7-year-old tried to trick me with the ol’ “Mom! There’s a spider on your head!” After a brief panicked mental dialogue of, “Spider?! No way. Snow. Cold. Not Possible,” I dutifully pretend-shrieked, “WHERE???” (along with the accompanying hair mussing) while she collapsed in giggles and exclaimed, “APRIL FOOL’S!”
So, that's all I've got. I am the April fool. Have a great weekend everyone and I hope to get back to a less erratic blogging schedule soon.
ETA: Okay, very funny Blogger. You got me. Publishing my post as one loooooong paragraph instead of 5 separate ones is a total riot. But really, there's pizza to be bought, a play to attend. You can format correctly now.
How 'bout now?
