April Fool's Day

Those who know me well also know that I have always hated April Fool's Day. Even as a kid. I hate jokes. I dislike Halloween too. I know it's weird. Actually,I'm not fond of the month of April either. 8 years ago I learned to hate it even more. My hubby was diagnosed with non Hodgkin's. It began what would be a two year treatment program. A very long two years. A year later to the day my Mother in law was diagnosed with breast cancer. Which began her year of treatments. We had a couple of years of crazy times in the Burg house. Did I mention that 15 years before all of that my Dad had his kidney removed with a 9 pound tumor attached to it? He died months later. His surgery was not on April 1st but still was in April. The exception of Tornado's birthday April has not been a very good month for us. I actually dread it every year. We always have a string of bad luck in April. Why am I bringing all of this up? I woke up this morning to the news that my Dad's sister died. Lung cancer. Ugh. I just want to craw back into bed and throw the covers over my head. Praying the rest of April gets better.

How many days until April is over?

Aww. I'm so sorry Burgmom.

Praying for you, and also keeping my fingers crossed that this April proves to be better to you. (:
