Dia dhuit ar maidin agus Lá Fhéile Pádraig Sona Daoibh! Good morning and happy St. Patrick’s day to you all! Belated I wish you this. LOL! I didn’t get around to posting yesterday like I had planned.

Some groaners for you…
Here are a few Irish jokes that I saw one of the people I follow on twitter post and I was amused by the first one.

1. What do you call a knife that cuts 4 loaves of Irish bread at once.
A four loaf cleaver.

2. Why do people wear shamrocks on St Patrick’s day?
Regular rocks are too heavy.

3. Why is it a bad idea to iron a four leaf clover?
Because you shouldn’t press your luck!

One more thing I found amusing, This came from another person on twitter I follow.
“Got my stimmy on St. Patrick’s Day. Call that luck of the IRS.”
Some did have the luck of the IRS I suppose, to those who didn’t, hang in there. It’s coming.

I hope you all had a happy and safe St. Patrick’s day no matter how you celebrated. Unfortunately we didn’t get to do that this year as we hadn’t gotten to go to the grocery store to get the things I needed. I had planned to make a traditional Irish stew, soda bread and I hadn’t yet decided what I was going to make for dessert. I wanted to wake up yesterday morning and make an Irish breakfast complete with real Irish coffee but it didn’t happen. I still plan to do this, it will just be late. I’m not making corn beef and cabbage as that is not truly Irish, Emmy has never had Irish food so I want her to experience that. I just hope she likes it, she did say she’ll try anything once so here’s hoping.

My job coach came over yesterday, I totally forgot she was coming and I was so embarrassed. She told me not to worry about it and we just rescheduled for next Wednesday at 1:00. I need to write these things down I swear. The older you get, the more you begin to forget things. I did read that blueberries improve memory so I think I’ll start eating those more than I already do, maybe it will help. LOL!

This past Tuesday Emmy and I got the first dose of our vaccine. We ended up getting the Pfizer one, we go back for our second dose April 16. I’m not sure how i feel about this really. The first one went alright except I woke up quite a few times Tuesday night with a racing heart. I don’t know if that was a side affect of the shot or if it was just my heart being goofy again. I have gone in so many times about my heart and every time they tell me there’s nothing wrong and my heart is just fine. Don’t get me wrong, I am thankful beyond belief about this but there are times I just don’t feel right. Maybe I worry too much and that’s why i feel weird, i do know that worrying and stress can cause things to happen with your body that isn’t supposed to. Anyway I digress. I didn’t really have any side affects but i was a bit more tired than normal. Emmy had a super sore arm but I didn’t. It ached a little but not near as bad as hers does. I’m scared about the second dose as they said that’s when you could have the worst side affects. I almost wish we had gotten the Moderna because then I’d have a bit of an idea of what to expect as my AHRMS workers and my therapist got that one. Better yet, the Johnson and Johnson one would have been the best because I would have only had to get one does, the downside to that is it is the least affective or so I’ve heard. Honestly, I’d have been willing to risk it. I hate needles. I’ve considered not getting the second dose but Lura told me that I got the first one so I might as well go through with the second. She’s right, we all have to do our part to try and end this pandemic. I miss life the way it used to be but the question is? Will life ever go back to the way it used to be? Only time will tell. Somehow I don’t see it though. That’s tough for me to say as I’m usually the optimistic one. We can only hope and pray it does.

I don’t really have anything planned for the day though I do have my show at 6:00 this evening eastern time. Between a Rock and a Hard Place will air on XTFM, I don’t really have a theme for this show so it’s pretty much anything goes as long as it’s rock or metal. If you want to check me out, visit for listening links or tell Lady A or whatever your choice of smart speaker is to play Xtransmission radio from tune in. Hope to see you there!

Okay, this is the end till next time. I hope you all have a wonderful day filled with love, joy, peace and positivity.
Be good to yourselves and each other.
Practice self-care because it’s good for you.
