Today is what??
Oh, that's right, it's April Fool's Day! Well, this is no April Fool's joke. Tink is awesome and to have received the coveted Golden Spork from her is a great honor!
Speaking of April Fool's...I hope everyone I know and love out here in cyberspace has been safe and protected from the damned April Fool's Worm.

Wanna know what kind of fun I've had so far this week? I've been on my knees! No, get your minds out of the gutter! I was painting the baseboards throughout the house. And the door frames and the doors too. I started out just touching up a spot here and a spot there that had been scuffed and soon realized that was leaving little bright pretty patches and long strips of dulled out, yellowed funkiness. So I just went ahead and slapped some paint on all of it.
I am amazed that the little bit of paint on just those tiny pieces of wood granted such a nice facelift to our little home.
In my last post, Fiwa commented that she wished she got paid for being a homemaker.
Judging by the work I've done around here in the past three weeks, I'd say my employer would be asking Uncle Sam for some bailout money just to pay me some major overtime if homemakers did get paid!
Truly, though, I enjoy it. Who would have ever thought I'd like this? My mother could never get me to clean my room. Funny how we change.
Speaking of my mother...
Let me preface this by telling you this month is Wifester and mine's second anniversary. Not our day we met anniversary, but the really important one...the Wedding Anniversary! We got married on April 19, 2007, in Niagra Falls, Canada.
My parents declined to attend. Macey's mom and stepdad both came and celebrated with us.
Wifester and I lived together for a year before we married and dated for a while before we moved in together. I know, shocking...lesbians who didn't rent a Uhaul on the second date.
Anywho. In all this time, Wifester's mom and stepdad have been in town numerous times and each time I've tried to include my parents in some activity with us, be it an invitation just to come by, or to go meet somewhere neutral for dinner. They always have some church event planned and can't make it.
Wifester's mom is coming in at the end of this week. Actually it's her mom and aunt and two cousins. (Good thing I've been working on the house)
So yesterday I called mi madre to see if her and Dad wanted to visit and meet Wifester's wonderful mom and guess what?
They are going to Oklahoma City. Yep , going to meet a minister and learn his way of recruiting people. Apparently their church wants to incorporate this guy's method of driving a van around and picking up people off of the streets to drag them into their church, putting on plays (I'm having visions of those awful Hell House productions
And who knows what else, like possibly...
