St. Patrick’s Day irks me

So in NY on St. Patrick’s day EVERYONE seems to think they are Irish. I don’t know why this bothers me so much but when I say that I am actually, like actually born and have my entire family there, people seem to just brush it off and say yea this shirt I bought may have been made in Ireland. Arrghhh. The next question is “are you eating corned beef and cabbage?” – NO! That is an american thing.

Ok let me get off that rant or else it will go on forever.

So this is the plan for the weekend so far. Right now I can barely see from this damn migraine still. I have my little pile of 6 pills to take to try to get them to feel better – all of which tell me they may cause drowsiness. (I swear you say you have children and the doctors look at you like you have two heads… what you don’t want to be falling asleep taking care of a 2 and 10 week old??) I have L painting with construction paper and water, best thing ever because she can’t make a mess and it still looks like paint. J is downstairs with my in-laws for a little while and i’m watching Ellen on TV. Mr. A is in bed until around 4ish as he worked last night.

We have two different plans for tonight… if I am feeling up to it we may go to my friend’s house about 30 minutes away and if I dont think I can go to the party, which at the minute is questionable, we will have dinner with our friends in the house here. Something very low key as money is slightly tight at the minute. I also want to work on a project for mothers day.

I am planning on doing two projects from Pinterest

This one is for L to do

Then I will add this one in the top corner with J’s foot….

Im planning on making three copies of these. I want to keep one for myself and then giving one to my MIL and mailing a nice care package home to my mom in Tyrone. I think it will be very cute and something I can keep for years. If I remember I would like to try to do one every year so we can look back at how much they changed but will be proud of myself if I at least get it done this year 🙂

Tomorrow there is a parade in Blauvelt, NY but it starts at 11 and Mr. A has to work tonight so I dont think we will be making it.

My kitchen was recently redone and I am still getting it organized. Its really exciting to have so much room and I LOVE reorganizing things but I do have to be in the mood. For some reason I have found myself wanting to do it even through this blinding headache. I think its because it makes me feel better to know that parts of my life are at least getting sorted out. It also has been between 50 and 70 in NY the last week and the sun is shining so that helps my mood a lot.

So today and tomorrow will be crafts and organizing.

Monday is craft day! My favorite day of the week. I get up and head off to my friend Nikki’s for 10am and usually stay until around 4:30pm. Then its off to my Uncle John and Bob’s for a celebratory dinner for their wedding. They are having everyone over as a thank you for being part of their day. This just says it all. They are such kind and generous men. Who invites 15 people over to thank them for being part of THEIR day. It was such an honor for us to actually be there. I am always humbled by their kindness.

Okay I am off to finish getting L into bed for her nap and then I think I will try to get up and start the kitchen. I just took the 6 pills to start off my morning for my headache and its the first day I have taken them all together – so it depends on how well they react together. All the windows are open and the sun is pouring in so I am sticking a smile on my face and i’m determined to make it a great day!!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to everyone but especially to the IRISH! XO

  1. So glad you’ve decided to do this blog – such a perfect combination of your voice (written) and your eye (photography) – and wasn’t I surprised to find myself in here… your comments about Bob and I brought a happy tear to my eye. Thank you, and just know how much you are loved and appreciated and how glad we are to have you and your hubby and your kidlings as part of our lives…

    • Thank you :). I am sure most of what I write about is boring to some but it’s a nice way to get my thoughts out there. I love being with you all on holidays and if we didn’t go I think L would be quite upset. Love you both very much.
