Things Are Getting Back to Normal

Shortly after midnight this morning, I told Dan I was pregnant and that he had a huge spider on his back. APRIL FOOLS! He didn’t fall for it. I began laughing so hard I “bawled my eyeballs out” (as Laylee would say) and rolled around on the bed cackling. I told Dan I was crying. He said, “Sad crying?” and I said, “Yes.” He said, “Oh baby, really?” “APRIL FOOLS!” I replied and laughed for another 2 hours.

The Today Show manicure is starting to chip. I can feel my cuticles multiplying even now.


The “let’s try to look like Martha or Oprah because of course we ALWAYS have fresh roses” of love from Dan are beginning to wilt.


I am eating chips with no makeup on. (Gross! Who puts makeup on chips?)

I’ve decided that it’s much easier to act natural when there’s not someone hanging around reminding you to… act natural. If you’re thinking about how you would normally walk into the library, you’re no longer normally walking into anything. I wonder if my Cuban action was too much.

Instead of church this weekend, we watched 8 hours of a world-wide general conference over the internet. Great, great stuff and fabulous to get a little religion while snuggling with your peeps. They frown on under-blanket snuggle fests during normal Sunday worship.

wafflesFor dinner tonight we enjoyed the flava-full culinary stylings of our big daddy, Homey D. What? What? I had to try taking this picture twice. On the first attempt, the batteries were dead to me.

Karen’s post made me laugh so hard I cried and as usual Chilihead has harvested the best of YouTube for our viewing pleasure. I just noticed that Heather suggested it on YouTube day too.

Laylee is running around the house making “horsey noises” that sound like a pork dying in agony and I’m merely annoyed, rather than embarrassed. The kids have been completely in-sane since this morning and I’ve sort of been letting it build to a frenzy before I put them away in a fit of bedtime.

Honestly they deserve a little crazy freedom. They were so good when the crew was here, I’m seriously considering calling up Miss Hannigan and asking what we have to do to finalize these here adoption papers.

    It didn’t dawn on me that today was April fools day, usually I get my wife good. But today the softball game was an hour earlier than I thought…( we did win in the last at bat, way to go Crusher’s). I don’t have a clue how to pull one over on my wife, but if I come up with something I’ll post it here.

    A PORK dying in agony?!

    A little DYM in the morning and I’m laughing all day.

    I tried to reword that to be a pun with “I love the smell of Napalm early in the morning” but your blog doesn’t really have a smell, plus the mental image of me giving you a sniff was a little creepy. And without the smelling part, who would get it? oh well, I gave it a shot.

  5. “They were so good when the crew was here”

    The crew. I see. Now it’s “the crew”.

    Dang! I need a crew.

    You sound positively giddy! I’m not reading anymore blogs this morning ’cause I don’t want to spoil the giggly-grins you’ve given me. Have a good one!

  9. Haha, a “pork” dying in agony. That was pretty funny.

    April Fools was fun. We were sitting with my future mother-in-law eating breakfast, talking about April Fools Day and all the different pranks we could pull, and I jokingly said to my fiance “Did you tell your mom yet that we are pregnant?” She looked at me and said “REALLY? YAY!!!!” Doesn’t take much to fool her.

    Your blog reminds me of the best of Gilmore Girls dialogue with all the references – many of which I miss, I’m sure. Loved the Miss Hannigan reference today.l

  11. Karen says:

    Miss Hannigan? Oh my word. You slay me.

    Thanks for the linkage. You have no idea what this will do to my Site Meter. It might cause my computer to explode. In a good way, of course.

    Is Dan wearing an apron? That’s too dang cute.

  13. RGLHM says:

    I didn’t know they went to your house. AWESOME. I now get to see it.

  14. Oh, Kathryn- you are a marvel…!

    I am sooo going to be awake that morning so I can see you become a supa-stah.
