It's April!

Wow. What an original and creative blog post title that was. I'm pretty tired as I'm writing this, so please forgive the somewhat banal tone of this post. I'm so glad that it's April! March was a busy and very unusual month for us. It was full of wonderful things--John's birthday and baptism, our parents visiting, our first cruise, Easter--but I'm ready to get back to normal life now, so thank you April for (hopefully) bringing that back in the coming weeks. Here's what else I'm looking forward to this month: General Conference, the arrival of spring (for real this month. Come on, spring!) with its warmer temperatures and blooming buds, spring-cleaning the house, and getting some home improvement projects done. I'm looking forward to it all, even the spring-cleaning. What's wrong with me anyway?! It must be my overtired mind and my inner yearning for life to get back to normal.

I wanted to write something for an April Fool's Joke for anyone reading this today but I haven't been able to come up with anything good or clever enough, which is further evidence of my brain drain. Sometimes when I write these blog posts the words come flowing out and I have no problem coming up with what I want to say, and other times, like right now, I have serious writer's block and no creativity. Plus I watched Les Miserables over the weekend and I can't get the songs and music out of my head, and that makes it hard for my thoughts to, uh, congeal properly or whatever. (See?) So I guess this is where I'll end this post, except to say...{insert almost-believable "joke" here, whichever you'd like: We're moving back to the Northeast!; I'm pregnant--with twins!; I'm getting my hair cut into a super-short pixie cut!...Sorry, that's all I've got!}.
