I actually did it. I went to the St. Patrick’s Day parade Saturday morning.

This may not sound like a big feat to you, but it was a pretty sizable accomplishment for me. I had been doing the morning show all week, waking up at 1:15 in the morning. Even when I’m not on the morning shift I like to sleep in as much as I can provided I don’t have anything special going on that day. I also don’t like to be cold. It’s rare to not see my thermostat lower than 72 degrees this time of year.

I braved the cold and sacrificed my sleep. Where’s my trophy?! Only kidding. I was happy to be back joining in on the festivities with my coworkers that I missed out on with last year. Last year was a little too brutal for me.

I’m looking forward to walking (or sitting in the truck ;) ) again next year. Hopefully we can get those warmer temperatures back that we luckily had a few years back. That was easily my favorite parade.
