Oh, how I love April Fools’ Day. At least when others are the recipient. The old “I’m pregnant” was always my favorite fool. Considering I have no baby-making parts left in my body this joke has probably run it’s course. Still, it makes for an eye-grabbing title, don’t you think?

We finally have some beautiful spring weather. After the winter we had, this warm, sunny weather is most welcome. I can’t wait to get out in it today, even if it’s just walking Sookie around the block. The big block, of course.

We’re enjoying the visit with my folks. The kids are typical teenagers so they’re not always around. In fact I think we’ve only had one dinner with both kids in the last week. That was the night Todd and I were going to take my parents to Fellini’s – the Italian restaurant where the waiters and waitresses sing opera. The kids had band practice so they weren’t able to go with us. But the weather turned out kind of bad and we decided just to stay home and have Italian here. That way the kids could eat with us. The only problem with this plan, though, was that I wouldn’t get the cannoli I’d been thinking about for days. Band practice got cancelled so Katie and I drove down to the Collegeville Diner and picked up all manner of gooey confections, including my cannoli. So far it’s been my favorite night of the whole week. Is that because I got cannoli or because both kids were here? You decide.

And that’s all I’ve got. I’m off to enjoy our weather!

    Cannoli and both kids? Nice!!It's crazy how busy our teenagers' lives are. But it sure is nice when we get to eat dinner with them once in a while, huh?

    I love cannoli and that's no joke.

    Jen, I think it was the cannoli; kids you always have with you (more or less) but cannoli…well, once on the lips, LONG TIME on the hips, but not forever!

    I've never had a cannoli. Can we still be friends? xxxooo
