Happy St Patty's Day!! (And a brief update)

Happy St Patrick's Day to you all! I put on a green sweater this morning, started drinking my coffee (not Irished up though- I'm babysitting and I can't even begin to imagine the issues that would come up if I did that! lol), and later I'm going to put the corned beef on and hopefully have a beer or two. Low key by St Patrick party standards, but, hey I'm in the spirit right?

I am on spring break this week though I've been babysitting every morning since Monday, so, it hasn't felt much like a break. I'm also house/petsitting for Jon's sister again. I wanna get some more sleeping in time as I feel the need for laziness. Once I get some more sleep I think I'll be in the mood to post more. Yes, I know, excuses excuses. I do have a good excuse to be lazy though as I am recooperating some sore and strained muscles from last Thursday's dance class. My body has informed me that it is not as young as the other dancers and why dear God am I trying to keep up with them? Ah well, joys of getting into shape eh?

Speaking of dance, click on this (Kristin Butke School of Irish Dance Performs on Six in the Morning) link to see my teacher K.T. and two awesome young dancers from my class do some Irish dancing. See those costumes and wigs? I may just put one of those on someday! I swear I will fill you all in on the culture of Irish dancing later.

I wish you all a very Happy and Safe St. Patrick's Day!! Do you all have any plans or have special traditions to celebrate this day? Or do you do anything at all? Please share either way!

Edited to Add: Just in case the above link doesn't work out this link should take you directly there.

If you count messing with my kids' heads by dying food and allergy medicine green, then I have plans. Otherwise, corned beef & cabbage is about it!

Sounds like you had fun. There's no tradition for the Irish here. And it's my FIL's birthday, so that takes priority.

Dedene- Absolutley. Bday celebrations are a definite priority.
