Whining & Trickery

The last few days at home have not been good

And that has had nothing to do with either Jay or myself but because it has been kind of a smörgåsbord of things that don't work. First, our disposal was broken thus making our sink disgusting. Next, that fed into the dishwasher which started to leak onto the floor. When we finally had someone in there looking at it, the power went out so more water started spilling out (instead of the sucking device that was 'drinking' it up) onto the kitchen floor & all my rugs which required tons of towels and a huge old mess. And due to the lack of working kitchen, plates inherently had stacked-up and the entire place was a huge bummer for two whole days until we FINALLY got it fixed last night. Phew. After a lot of scrubbing and laundry, the house returned to normalcy and I didn't feel manic trying to dodge dishes and an unusable sink to grab an apple. Two days might seem a little dramatic to be so stressed but when it involves the most used place in the entire house and also involves old food and leaking water- I'd say I'm entitled to a little bit of a whine fest. At least that was my pathetic story and I'm sticking to it.

Wooooooooosaw. Life is back to normal.
Now on to more important things: How can I prank Jay tonight? He is traveling all day on business and certainly won't stop and read my blog inbetween meetings so for today, this is a safe zone of ideas. I'd like to do something to him tonight and all I got is that he startles easily and generally doesn't like spiders - so I'm gonna try to work with those two ideas.

Wishing you a wonderful day where you remember to not be gullible!

lol I'd whine too if that happened. But the most used spot in the house? Hmm the bathroom may give the kitchen a run for its money.

You could somehow put red marks on you and say a spider bit you and is in the house, act all freaked out and say its crawling on him or something.

Aw I am sorry to hear that. I would whine too!!!

April Fools pranks aren't my specialty, but I can't wait to hear what you do! Maybe you can pretend the sink got jammed with a spider nest and now they took over your house. I see a trip to target for a bag of fake bugs in the near future. Hahaha

If something is wrong in the kitchen or bathroom, all hell breaks loose in my brain. I don't do well in chaos. I get this post! Two days feels like an eternity.

Bummer, kitchen problems always bug me too! Ha ha April Fools is so much fun. I never know what to do though because I don't want to scare anyone. I have done a few though but I'm never serious enough so they figure it out real quick. ;) Glad everything is back to normal! ;)

Ha, that's a good one with the marks!

Caitlin @ Candyfloss & Persie said...

haha yes, he would hate that. Another good idea!

The sucking device comment caught my attention, and that's because I was drinking wine and it went down the wrong pipe when I laughed about my own foolishness or for no reason and the absurdity of my brain sometimes. However, it was under a little spell of alcohol due to aforementioned wine.
Also, not sure if the prank is a little evil or not, but a small plastic arachnid under the pillow may do the trick. I once placed a small hairy mouse toy inside my exwife's wallet sporadically throughout the month. Or the year. So whenever she'd go to pay, she'd jump scared in front of other people when she'd open her purse/wallet (whatever ya'll call that brick size wallet). :)
Your husband seems like a nice dude, so who knows, the trick might be on you lol
