It's April Fools today. I'm such a boring April fooler this year. Usually I tape the sprayer on the sink so it sprays when you turn on the faucet, but I always trick myself with that one, and I realized that I'd need to use the sink 50,000 times before Eric did, so I decided against it this year.

One year, when I was younger, I put Saran wrap on the toilet. By brother peed and it went all over the floor. I thought it was so funny! But my brother was SUPER mad and told my dad and my dad made ME clean up my brother's pee. Jokes on me once again. GROSS!

I did do one thing for April Fools, I can't tell you what quite yet because Eric hasn't been tricked yet. But I can almost guarantee that I'll be tricked by it too, oh well, so it goes.

Reese decided it would be a good idea to wear my slippers around the house today.

It is difficult to walk when your feet are as long as your whole leg.

On a completely different note: My wedding ring was purchased at L**** (I won't say the rest since I don't want them to look bad) Jewelers and they guarantee the band and setting for life, plus do a cleaning/checkup/re-plate the gold every 6 months. The owners retired and sold their company. It is still called L**** so I took my ring in for the check-up. Well, come to find out, I am really rough on my ring (who would've guessed). I guess you're not supposed to wear it ALL the time - beats me. Anyway, my 3 year ring has MUCH more wear than it ought to and the prongs need to be built up before it can be cleaned, otherwise the diamond might fall out. This would all be covered under the guarantee. However, since they aren't the original L****'s they won't guarantee it. When I took it in 6 months earlier (when it was still the original owners) they said something about the prongs needing to be done, but then said, actually it will be OK this time. NOW I'm bugged because I realized it would've been covered under the guarantee but I'm wondering if the Jeweler thought, ah, let's just not worry about it, we'll be gone in a month anyway. I want to give them the benefit of the doubt but sort of have my suspicions. Long story short, I found a different jeweler to do the work, because I am a bit fed up with L**** at the moment, and wanted to give someone else the business. The end.

What price did they give you? Just the prongs need done or anything else?
My dad does jewelry repair at his store in Springville, and he's the best price around. Also there is a store on University Ave. in Provo that does really great work too. It's called the Jeweler's Bench.

That's annoying. I was like you in the sense that I never knew wedding rings could get so dirty.... crazy. I've switched to just a band... no diamonds (more practical for me). I bet my other one has ink and paint all in it. Your's probably has dirt in it from dirt biking.
