What turned out to be an April Fools' encounter for you?!

Friday, April 01, 2011

Mine would have to be last night on SP! I was finishing a poll when the date said 4/1/11 and it had not hit midnight yet,but given the day I had had [fuel pump went out on the car,air conditioner went out on the house, and I was tired to boot!] ,I thought it WAS April 1st and I had MISSED my scrapbooking "crop"party" with the my friends!~ [I look forward to these for weeks!~]Especially after I had just spent hours making a birthday cake for me ---and "Congrats!" cupcakes for one of my scrap buddies!
What was YOUR April Fools' encounter? emoticon

    My son had called his dad late last night all frustrated because the sponsors for his fraternity club's weekend retreat backed out and they were all going to have to call off the trip. Would Dad go? Well, what good Dad wouldn't, and of course he said yes. ALL the guys were ecstatic! Dad saved the Alpha Chi river retreat.

This morning, I texted Jon, saying, "Oh, Jon. We don't know what to do! Daddy is throwing up in the bathroom and can't even make it to teach school! We are going to have to call Josh (the dean) and explain that he just can't come."

I had called Josh to be sure he knew ahead of time that I was going to April Fool him this way, and he thought it was great!

So, Jon calls me back frantically when he got the message! "Mom! I need to talk to Dad!" "Well, Jon, I'm at work, and I don't know if Dad left his phone in the car again, but I can't get him to answer either! This morning when I left, he was still throwing up. Dad says I have to call Josh to let him know there isn't a sponsor."

"NO! Mom, tell me you didn't call Josh! Mom, WHAT did you tell JOSH?!"

"Jon", I said, " just told Josh that should anyone contact him about Drex throwing up in the bathroom that it was just an April Fool's joke, and not to worry!"

BWAHAHAHAHA! emoticon emoticon


And we laughed!

I LOVE April Fool's Day, and everybody knows it! Every year I think I won't get the kids, but I can usually get at least one of the four! On the way home from work just now, I got our older son, Jeff. I asked him to come get me from work because I'd locked my keys in the car and Daddy's out of town. Yeah... I got him, too.

And I think it's the fourth time I've gotten Drex (my DH) with the water under the sink routine! And he falls for it! Sheesh! emoticon

    The BEST April Fool's joke I was on the receiving end of was an email from a race director her in Tulsa. They organize and are in charge of the Route 66 Marathon and other races that happen that one weekend in November every year. It was a statment that the "Inventor of Tulsa will Run the 66 Marathon". The person they were talking about is Charlie Sheen (remember his statement that he invented Tulsa in his sleep). It will be his first marathon and he was going to win it. 2 hours later, they sent another email saying it was all an April Fool's joke. I NEVER thought an organization this big (9000 participants every year) would do that.

    Betsy, you can opt to get emails from SP when anyone comments on your friend feed/ status updates. Sure makes it easier to keep up with it. emoticon

The Sparkpoints Quizzes just Went Down to 5pts!/1 quiz per day!

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

I KNEW I should have taken advantage of the quizzes!!!! It used to be 10 pts. a quiz and 5 per day for a total of FIFTY pts in one day! I was only doing one as I felt that was enough "extra" pts. a day and most of the questions are the same as on trivia.... Oh well! Live and Learn!!!! emoticon

    Yeah, I had a feeling SP would rethink the 50 points-a-day for quizzes. It just seemed too good to be true (but was nice while it lasted!) emoticon

Taking Some time for ME!

Saturday, March 19, 2011

Today I get to scrapbook for SIX hours with friends for a friend's birthday celebration! It is something I have looked forward to for WEEKS! And I believe with all the time I have put in homeschooling and staying -at-home taking care of my preschooler and my hubby,I have EARNED it! Bur luckily , I have a SUPPORTIVE hubby who KNOWS how IMPORTANT it is for MOMMY to have ME time! And I KNOW how IMPORTANT it is to get some time AWAY from the family to RE-ENERGIZE myself! And no, I DON'T have to EARN it! SO, here's to RE-ENERGIZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PS--There is a GREAT BOOK that emphasizes what I had already known before I read it---and has GREAT IDEAS for re-energizing!!!!~~~Taking Care of the ME in MOMMY by Lisa Whelchel [She was Blair on The Facts of Life and is a born-again Christian].

Are YOU re-energizing today???? ~~In what way OR what is ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE ways to RE-ENERGIZE???? emoticon

    I enjoyed that book by Lisa Whelchel as well. Glad you got some fun scrapping time in today!!! I spent about the same amount of time sitting through dd's quiz meet and awards. Got to visit off and on with some mom's from church though so that was nice.

    I started to say what I like to do to re-energize, but all I could think of was sleep! LOL I think I'll go do that right now since I had to work from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. today! emoticon
