2 fools in love said their I do’s on this foolish day.
44 years later they’re still going strong just living the dream.
They call us the fools but really?
They picked this and tomorrow’s her birthday,
so who are the fools after all?
The moral of the story is it takes a fool to know one
and 2 to tie the knot on April 1st.
Once a fool, always a fool.
Happy Anniversary forever fools!
And happy April fools day to all of my foolish friends.
This was my best friend Jan, Jahn, Fool (and yes we called each other that), who just so happened to be my boyfriend’s sister but little did we know that for quite awhile.
Her brother became my husband a year after they got married. 49 years later we still are besties👯♀️, laugh at the silliest things which turn quickly to crossing our legs hysterically running to the bathroom to this day.
Once we were window shopping on El Paso Drive with our girls and got laughing so hard that one of us peed all down the street. This is not a street you want to be peeing on, trust me. Heads were turning and we were mortified but couldn’t stop laughing. I can’t remember who peed but I’m sure it was her and she’s sure it was me. I’m actually sure she’s right. Haha!
So many memories come flooding back to me and I am forever grateful.
She calls us the fools but let’s be honest, whoever picks this day as your Anniversary are the real fools!
And to be honest, who sends me a picture to post with the “Search by Gallery Caption” to share. Ha. I asked it for her this morning so there’s that. I have so many pictures I wanted to share of she and I but mine are all packed away.
And look what happened to her last night… so much for romance! Hahahaha
Here’s one of all of us celebrating my MIL and FIL’s 50th Anniversary at The Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco, where my mother used to work.
I’m not gonna lie, it’s been a challenging week with snafus with the house remodel and I’m so glad it’s Friday!
My contractor said we have a little problem with your tub. I was like… “Yeees?” He said he forgot it was a bigger tub and it’s not gonna quite fit. Wait, you’re kidding me, doesn’t he read plans?
To be fair the architect specked 60 x 32 tub on the plans but we’ve talked for 8 months about the size of the tub increasing in size and he assured me it would be no problem.
I was so hoping that was an April Fools joke, but not so. I ended up not showing up for the meeting because I knew I was so mad I needed to step back from it. My husband went and I told them to come up with some solutions and present them to me. So far none of them are options that work.
It will fit trust you me but we’re back to finagling everything at the moment and stopped the project until we get it figured out.
Change orders are expensive so we’re not going there. Ollie doesn’t seem to mind at all and is quite happy with me trying out furnishing to get a sense of space. Next life I’m coming back as one of my animals. I don’t mind change orders when we find things that are out of anyone’s control like finding out we have double the concrete when drilling. No one could guess that ahead of time but not this, when we talked about it several times and documented it. On the plus, he admitted it was his fault and he’s an awesome friend and contractor, so we’ll get through this. If you have any ideas, have at it:
The moral of the story is get change orders drawn on paper BEFORE framing even when they tell you it’s not necessary.
The windows were scheduled for today but they weren’t on the truck which is about right for this week. As they say what project was ever on time and on budget? I’m always optimistic but even optimists are wrong sometimes.
On the plus, we finally got some rain!!! Some is better than none and helped water our newly planted trees.
lemonade snow cones refresh
bitter sweet kisses
We ended up getting 4 mores trees from our neighbors which was a boon!!
Bhlat said YES TO THE DRESS. If you didn’t see my instagram picture, here it is below.
Narinia is off to Washington D.C. with 116 8th grade students and 15 teachers for their annual Trip which is the first time going in 3 years (glad it’s her and not me but she’s over the moon) and will get to see Brontavalo (my daughter that lives in NYC) when she gets there. Fun times!
Have a wonderful Friday and remember life doesn’t always go as planned, we get disappointed and upset but there is always a solution to every problem.
Something good comes from mishaps and sometimes it’s even better than you could have ever expected.
Keep the faith, your chin up and carry on. There is no time to sit and wallow. We are in charge of how we show up and face the day.
As for me, I’m facing it with a cuppa in hand and a celebration of life later today for a friend that lost her mother but lived a wonderful full life.
Take each day as it comes and roll with the punches. Thanks for visiting today!
Happy Fri-Yay My Friends,
Take it Moment to Moment and Stop and
Smell the Roses!
