Happy St. Patrick's Day

Funny thing happened on the way to school...

I reminded my first grader that St. Patrick's Day tradition allows you to pinch someone who isn't wearing green today. Since we were driving to school having this discussion, I glanced in the rear-view mirror for his reaction.

Picture, if you will, the slow devious smile of the Grinch. Now place that same ornery look on an innocent-seven-year-old face as the full reality of potential opportunity takes root. (From a mom's perspective this was kind of funny yet kind of concerning as I wonder if I'll get a call from the Principal's office later today...)

He then says, "I bet Dad didn't wear green today because he forgot to wear it last year."

Note to Dad: you've been warned!

TGIF
After a busy week, I couldn't wait for Friday to get here. Not only did we have a hectic weekend at the MIAA basketball tournament, we nursed Gerard through a fever so that he would be ready to head to Oklahoma for even more basketball this weekend.

Planning a date night with my son on Friday, we decided to treat my mom to supper at McDonald's. After work, I collapsed into my mom's easy chair, exhausted and ready to relax. It was then I realized how far removed I had been all week from the world's happenings; I was astounded to hear about Japan's earthquake, tsunami and nuclear facility concerns and its global impact.

In a flash, I was thankful for all my blessings and my "stressful" week didn't seem so bad after all. TGIF took on new meaning for me: Thank God It's Fine.
