My alarm clock was the first thing to play an April Fool's Joke on me. I am usually walking out the door at 6:30 a.m. Today? I got UP at 6:30 a.m. Oh for the love of pete do I hate waking up late! It throws the whole day off. Needless to say I raced around here like a mad woman. We left the house at 7:00. I know...I have NO idea how I managed to get ready so quickly.
The next joke? My students put my coffee in the refrigerator while one of them was distracting me. So sneaky, these kids.
Then my principal told me I was fired. Apparently several of my students caught him first thing this morning begging him to play along with their plan. Ha.
Luckily I had a half-day meeting so I was able to avoid further harrassment from the kids. Little did I know I would have more to deal with.
Last Saturday, Jose went out to potty and never came back. I expected him to come home but as the hours, then days went by...I began to realize he probably wasn't going to. I have to admit, I missed the little guy. He would always curl up next to me on the couch and sleep under the covers at my feet each night. Except for a few potty accidents, he's such a sweet dog.
I decided to check the animal shelter today after my meeting as a last resort.
$88 later, I had my little puppy back!
That's right...I had to bail him out of puppy prison. Apparently someone picked him up and dropped him off at the shelter on Sunday. One pickup charge, four overnight visits, a rabies shot later and he was back at home, where he belongs. He is SO happy to be at home, curled up against my leg.
Note to self: Get.him.neutered.
How about you? Any good April Fool's jokes? Can you believe this post has no pictures?
