I'll give you a little hint . . .
Yes, it's true--I'm getting my St. Patrick's Day cards ready to mail out! I'm working on signing those cards, jotting quick notes, and addressing/stamping/sealing those envelopes in between working on my current freelance project, planning menus for the next week, compiling a grocery list for said menus so I can do our weekly grocery shopping this evening, and snagging my fifth grader from another early release due to parent-teacher conferences this week.
