I pretty much completely forgot about St. Patrick's Day this year. I didn't buy a corned beef, I didn't go to any parties or even have a beer. I did manage to put on an appropriate tee in the later part of the day, having spent the front half with my mother, shopping. My oldest brother took our dad to an air show & spent the day, so I took my mom shopping out of town.
I guess it just didn't matter much this year. We did have a going away party for Dawn's oldest the other night, I had a couple of drinks and some good food & then we came home. I'm just feeling really quiet these days, I guess. A friend even mentioned that at the party, that my energy level was way down. I'm not sure what's up with that. It may be that I'm still not feeling secure after my brother's wedding & things that transpired there, or that I'm still recovering from a bad week with one of the kids. I don't really know.
I did have a good time with mom, and had a great Ross day & even managed to get some deals at JC Penney, too. So, I have cute, new capris, and awesome skirt & some nice tanks. (and a pair of shorts that were kind of a fail, but were only $2).
I've been having some insomnia, too. I wake up at around 4am to go to the bathroom, then I lay there, mind running overtime, full of names like holly springs house cleaning, and things I ought to be up doing. This goes on for about 2 hours until I pass back out for a little while longer, depending on the day of the week & my obligations. I'm starting to feel like I'm driving high school kids around again, even though I know getting my daughter to her AA meetings is more important than anything else right now, I just don't feel like I have the freedom to relax anymore. Oh well, maybe one day they'll both have they're collective poop in a pile.
