Reason #1 I don't love St. Patrick's Day:
We don't own many green clothes.
Reason #2 I don't love St. Patrick's Day:
We don't buy clothes to wear for one day, like shirts with a Shamrock on them ($5/shirt x 8 shirts gets expensive very quickly to wear once!)
Reason #3 I don't love St. Patrick's Day:
I get pinched. By strangers. So I become a hermit for the day.
Reason #4 I don't love St. Patrick's Day:
As I finished putting out the kids' clothes and checked on them all in bed and headed to my own bed for the night... I remembered that tomorrow is that dreaded day when their peers and teachers will get on their case if they're not wearing GREEN. So I ditched the day's shirts and started over.
Reason #5 I don't love St. Patrick's Day:
Tomorrow when I wake up I will likely forget that it's St Patrick's Day and if I hadn't picked out the kids' clothes tonight, it would take me 3x as long tomorrow. Since I'm blogging instead of getting my own clothes out, I will not remember to wear green-- if I even own it!
And the only reason that I love St. Patrick's Day...
I can just not clean the house for the day and blame it on the Leprechauns messing it up! :D
Happy St. Patrick's Day. Don't pinch anyone. It's just plain MEAN :)
