The invitation I sent out said: "St. Patrick's Day Party Rescheduled!
We like to throw a quasi-annual St. Patrick's Day party every year or two. It gives us a good reason to wear our green socks.
But this year we're repainting and recarpeting and rearranging our furniture. The remodeling monster has eaten our entire month of March!
We didn't let it stop us from planning our party. We just postponed it a little while.
