APRIL 1, 2019: I cleaned house today, top to bottom.
April Fool! I just put things in less obvious places.
APRIL 2, 2019: We MUST keep talking about the caged children on the southern border.
Who is going to reunite them with their grieving parents?
APRIL 3, 2019: Forsythia and daffodils bloom like sunshine around the yard.
Pollen blooms like nuclear waste on the hood of my car.
APRIL 4, 2019: Saw a rabbit nibbling clover in the back yard.
Left a basket out in case it’s the Easter Bunny.
APRIL 5, 2019: I hate road work. Trucks run over me
while I’m driving the 50-mile-an-hour speed limit.
APRIL 6, 2019: A friend texted today just to say hello.
She must have known I needed a digital hug.
APRIL 7, 2019: My annual cardiology check-up was today.
Paid money for someone to tell me my heart is still beating.
APRIL 8, 2019: Thought I saw a spider on the carpet – was a piece of yarn.
It’s dead yarn now.
APRIL 9, 2019: Sad news is…I went to the movies alone today.
Good news is…I didn’t have to share my pizza.
APRIL 10, 2019: Wish I could win the lottery.
I’d pay off everybody’s student loans.
APRIL 11, 2019: Saw an interesting t-shirt today.
It said, “Go braless. It will pull the wrinkles out of your face.”
