March 17th - 18th 2001:
Location: Dublin Ireland
Players: me, cousin Jen, friend Sara, various drunken Irish people and other travellers
Event: St Patricks Day and Ushering my 30th birthday
Goings ons: Started drinking around 10am at the Guiness Brewery ... give me my free pint lass! Napped at the hotel. Continued drinking at various bars. Slightly bummed the parade was cancelled due to hoof and mouth disease, drowned sorrows in Guiness in IRELAND. Had to keep drinking through to the next day which was my birthday.
Birthday morning: A giant birthday HoHo (this sounds bad ... it was a CAKE people!). Couldn't really enjoy it because of the Guiness.

Location: Minneapolis, Roseville, St. Paul MN - work, home, Chili's
Players: work people, Lucy, Mel, Morgan (later in the evening, a drunk Jen [some things never change])
Event: drs appointment, work, Lucy chiropactor, chasing Lucy, dinner at Chili's and cleaning the toilet
Goings ons: Shopped at Once Upon a Child for used kids clothes, let Lucy play in the ball pit, listened to Lucy say "i no like you momma not EVER" every time I said no. Scrubbed the bathroom and removed vinyl St. Patricks day tablecloth from table. Took tylenol pm so I can sleep better tonight.
Birthday plans: Drive Lucy to alternative child-care in St. Paul, work coverage at my agency, go home early, babysit Morgan, take Lucy and Morgan back to St. Paul for Mac and Cheese with cauliflower hidden inside and hopefully happy play time with Isaac and Nathan.
2001 was a lot of fun but 2008 is pretty great!!!
