April Fools!

One of these is not true:

We are being evicted.

I haven't arranged a place for my family to live.

Nicholas' school is closing due to district-wide low enrollment after the city failed to protect 400 low-income families from being evicted because an out-of-state developer planned to slap on a fresh coat of paint and put up some new balconies onto the apartment mega-complex.

The house I've put an offer on is a real diamond in the rough.

Xena has spent 25 years going to college, and still does not have a degree.

Caitlan is changing schools her Senior year of high school.

I've spent the last six months trying to become Alameda's best sign maker.

We aren't packed for our move, and we need to be out by April 12th.

I will be moving the business from the home office to its own office space next week.

The offer on the new house has not been officially accepted. Escrow probably won't close until the first week of May.

My credit is just good enough that I qualify for a seriously brutal mortgage.

Xena has spent the last three years working full time and going to school full time and is 6 classes away from earning her degree.

Caitlan has a boyfriend she loves very much, and he let her have some of his hair to glue to a puppet she made of him.

I have a fish that farts.

If the ocean level rises 1 meter, parts of Alameda will flood. If it rises 7 meters, 75% of Alameda will be underwater.

Xena's work is so stressful because even though she often works between 60 and 70 hours per week, she still can't meet all the requirements from the category "other duties as assigned."

After a very rocky start, Nicholas has fully integrated into his new school.

Because of the need to move, Xena is taking the quarter off, and she is worried that this will be the third time she drops out of school having only a few classes left to earn her degree.

I think Nicholas has a girlfriend.

Caitlan attends college courses to gain some advanced placement credits.

I dream of developing an urban permaculture, retrofit cohousing, certified green business demonstration project, to promote a new, sustainable respect and love for ourselves, each other, and the natural world.
