I was modeling an outfit for my husband and I was excited because I had gone from size 18 to a size 16. I was feeling pretty good about myself and I told him that fifty is the new twenty one and my daughter says twenty.

I said that works for me so

Fifty Is The New Twenty

This is the way I look -- In My Dreams

As everyone knows that yesterday was April Fool's Day. Well let me tell you I've been had. The love of my heart and beautiful daughter got me and her dad.

She had gotten her finger smashed in the door by her sister and it messed her fingernail up. You know how they get when you smash them.

Her dad and I was talking about it being April Fool's Day when she came and told us that she had lost her fingernail at school that day. I told her to come and let me see I wanted to check it out and you know what she said ,you guessed it.

"April Fool's "-- We started to laugh because we were just talking about it and she got us. It says a lot when your own child can get you like that.

Well I know she has a creative mind.

Did anyone else get April Fooled?

I remember when I was in the sixth grade on the first day of school our teacher told us that he would never give us pop quizzes.

As school went on we had forgotten that and told us one day that we were going to have a pop quiz. We got our paper and pencil ready to start and we were panicking because we had no clue what we were going to have the quiz on.

Anyway he lifted the shade that they show slides on and on the blackboard wrote in big letters APRIL FOOL'S DAY.

He had gotten us all and he said now I told you at the beginning of the year that I would never give pop quizze.

We were so relieved and started laughing because we had all forgotten that it was April Fool's Day

Have A Good One

I don't think anyone is aware that I work as a nurse. I work 12 hours on friday nights and 12 hours sunday day shift. When I work friday night and come home saturday morning the drive home -- which takes an hour 1 way --I get so sleepy driving home.

Anyway if I sleep when I get home I can't sleep that night and then turn around and get up 5 am to go work sunday.

I feel like discombobulated. Something has to change but lord I don't know what yet.
I have 2 girls aged 9 and 11. I know that all you blog catalog readers know that I have a down syndrome daughter and so someone has to around to make sure she gets on and off the bus.

Which we missed this morning so I wound up having to take her to school.

I don't want to do anything where I would have to get them up at 5 am to take them to a sitter. It is so frustrating at times when all you want to do is stay at home and take of your family but with the economy and bills it takes both our incomes to make it.

Off the topic -- I finally have 1 whole reader to my marketing site hooray
It is not a lot but it is start. I changed my template and have start all over with it. I wish there was some way to save widgets but alas. If I am rambling forgive me as I am sleep deprived.

Well gotta go drop some cards
