Good morning. I've been having a hard time keeping up this week.

Between all the crap going on in the world in general, and all the crap that has been going wrong in "my world' lately and looking back at past months of April, in general, I'd almost have to say April sucks.

But then I remembered DD was born in April.

So I guess I'll just say the first 3 weeks of April suck...

Steven Colbert's response to the Boston Marathon bomber. Excellent stuff.

Both of my boys were born in April. So I've got that going for me, which is nice.

Fell asleep before that came on last night. I’ll need to go back a watch it later on.

That’s what I was alluding to earlier. Historically (and personally) April seems to be littered with more then it’s fair share of sorrow. I suspect that is has a lot to do with the difficult and uneven transition between the winter and the spring. We’ve all bottled everything up and hardened ourselves against the baron surroundings for so long that the insatiable need for action (even rash action) can no longer be contained. Things tend to come to a head this time of rear. Huge changes overwhelm all senses. The mind screams out for change… any change… just something different…

It’s probably just my imagination, but I’ve long since come to see this month as the origin of watershed events. While it is a time of blooming and new life, for me it’s also a time to be endured and survived. Oddly that’s the reason I chose to marry in April. Being as finding someone to share my world (and save me from myself for that matter) made all the difference, I wanted to remember that each year during this hardest of months.

There’s just something about April…



My word, that’s entirely too serious for this playground.
Quick! Someone pull my finger…



Ahhhhh… that’s better.

Afternoon, can't believe I haven't been on since Sunday, bizzare. Continued prayers for Boston and West Texas now

Just something to keep in mind in the future, if you do get a pin code, or any other offer, you can make changes to the reservation if something better comes along with NO penalty, as long as it is more than 45 days out from your arrival date.
Oh, I know that, always did, but let's just say I couldn't convince the powers that be.

And that makes even more sense than what you said earlier. This is getting scary.


But I don't mind if I do...

Fourth winter storm in ten days. I'm sick of winter. Norm, how quick can you have the camper ready? I'll tow it to CJ's!

Well, I took the first two weeks off work in April, but I'll have to agree with you that this week sucks.
