The only things certain in life...

I hope everyone had a wonderful April Fool's Day on Tuesday! I know mine was the best I've had so far. I promise, if we ever are pregnant again, (and don't expect that at any point in the near future) we will call the grandparents right away!
Today Shane has taken the camera with him to work, so you won't be getting any maple pictures, but I will say we have a nice large pot of sap boiling away outside. Yesterday we cooked our first batch, and unfortunately I didn't let it boil down enough, so we have a nice 'kind-of' maple syrup. It tastes superb, but I think we'll keep that batch for ourselves and hope the next one fares better.
For the rest of the day I'll be having fun doing taxes for my parents and sister. I say this without a trace of sarcasm. Really. I am one of the few weird people who really enjoy doing their taxes. Of course, with the help of Turbo Tax it is so easy and so much more satisfying. I can see the return calculated as I work. You have no idea what pleasure that brings me. Sad, I know, but true. I'm a numbers gal, and I'm okay with that. And yes, this is a picture of Nora being leashed in by Shane. I expect she'll start barking soon if she's anything like her Dad.
Good Thursday, everyone! The weekend is almost here!

hahah-shane totally did that when we were little! my mom had to unleash him at the flea market b/c he wouldn't stop barking at people. I did the usual eye roll as i stared at him blankly...even at the age of 3. "not amused" :) I have a plan to meet up with you all in boston in may. kinda doubt it will happen-but i can dream

Hehehe . . . I missed your April Fool's joke! Good one, though - did you immediately get a million phone calls?

Save us some of that Maine maple syrup - I'm getting anxious to get back to Maine! :)
