How Could I Forget?

It's March 17th!  I completely forgot it's St. Patrick's Day today.  Not that I actually "celebrate" it, but we always thought it was cool that we were descendants from Ireland (though we were happy to let anyone claim they were Irish, too, if they wanted).  We wore green to school and got to pinch anyone that forgot to wear green (without getting in trouble for pinching, too!)  My mom always made corned beef and cabbage for supper.  (Sorry, Mom.  I never liked it.  It was such a relief to have that menu only once a year.)

I also forgot to do my Lucky Seven grocery shopping today.  Great discounts on the 7th, 17th, and 27th of the month, and I blew it. 

Well, I did get to put away our dolls.  (Doll's Day, hinamatsuri, was March 3rd.)  Cleaned some kitchen cupboards.  Get some clutter out for garbage collection.  AND talk to one of my sisters in Michigan for nearly an hour!  It was a pretty good day.

Except I forgot to wear green.  And tomorrow I'll have to do some grocery shopping without today's discounts.
