Post Paddy Post

Sometimes as a parent, one has to learn how to adapt to changing plans and think on-the-fly. Yesterday was one such example. Kayleigh went to her friend's and Tyler decided to reschedule his Tae Kwon Do class for today and hit the sack early, so TFMD and I found ourselves at leisure for dinner. We'd originally planned pesto pasta for dinner (getting our green on), but at the last minute decided to head down to Edolyne Joe's. It was bustling but not crowded, and they had an awesome dinner special of corned beef, cabbage and potatoes with a honey-mustard sauce. Add a pint of Blue Moon draught and a shot of Jameson (and a Bailey's coffee for Rae), and we were happy little Celts.

And then we discovered the notes.

At Joe's, there are drawers in several of the antique tables. And folks scrawl little notes to leave behind for future dining guests to read. Many of them were romantic. Rae added one of her own.

We came home and got into our grubbies, then plopped down and watched Waking Ned Devine, which I'd never seen. I liked it. Rae's 3 for 4 so far.

Tonight is another round of Tae Kwon Do class, then dinner with a friend. And with that, Wednesday is done. The weekend approacheth!

sounds like a good day. I love corned beef and cabbage. It's been much too long since I've had it.

I didn't know you were doing TKD! how long have you been training?

TD said...

I'm actually not training. The kids just started. They've both trained in Aikido (Tyler got up to 7th Kyu), and an actress friend runs a TKD studio here in West Seattle with her husband. They are really enjoying it!

hm, must be a different Aikido federation. with Birankai your first test is 5th kyu, you count down, then comes Shodan and you count up, the highest rank someone alive holds is 8th dan I think, O-Sensei was (is?) a theoretical 10th dan.

I did TKD including tournaments for 3 years around when I was 30, headed in the other direction...I see myself doing yoga when I'm 80.
