As you can tell, we have come to the end of the 3 weeks!  Thank G-D for that.  I had a stomach bug Sunday and Monday, so was not so anxious to fast.  I called my Rav who told me to begin the fast, but if I was ill, to break.  I am eating some of the rice pudding that I made, that my stomach was too icky to eat last night.  Homemade rice pudding is YUMMY!!!!!!  I have nothing of substance to say, which is not unusual, so I will close with this.  My abba fasted!  Not only that but he did not shower, or shave!  Those of you who know him understand how proud that makes me!  Anyway, today was incredibly busy at work, B"H.  Anyway, am going to the Goffins for dinner, so I will be back later!

Good Morning Rockville!!

Boy does the weather bite  here in Rockville today.  Anyway, I am at my Abba's.  We had a lovely brunch, followed by me hanging out on the puter whilst he does his cleaning routine.  I had a WONDERFUL Shabbos in Scenic White Oak.  B&B, and the little ones were adorable.  Anyway, it was nice to be with people who have known me a long time, and reassured me that things are going to be ok.  Had a really nice lunch with the Eisenbugs, and their little maidala, Kayla (what a cutie!)  I am going to go help my dad clean, just remember that a dog in Frederick says fredg fredg fredg.... Hamayvin y'avin!!!!!!!!

Mint and cream and M&M's oh my!!!!!!!

I am SOOOOOOOO proud of my self.  My mother gave me an ice cream maker last year, and I tried it a bunch of times, and I could just never seem to make it work.  I decided to give it another shot, cause what the heck, and....... the result is ICE CREAM that is this color, with mini M&M's in it.  I cannot wait to try it, but I will be a good girl and have dinner first!  Wow, look y'all, I found something good about the 9 days!  Anyway, I have a horrible headache, so I am gonna go eat.  Hope everyone has a great Shabbos!

Ok, so I finally figured out how to rig my blog so that I can insert a title, and I was all excited cause I learned the HTML code to do things in color, and now on my toobar, is a freaking "color" thing!  That is it, no brains, no code, just click the stupid box! damnit!  Next to the stupid color box is a link box, which means that I did not have to bother to learn the code for that either! darnit!!!!!!! Since it is here, I will use it.  I am sure that most of you have seen this already, but go to  There is a really really funny song there, if you bother go and check out "This land is your land"  Anyway, I am starving and in general I hate the 9 days, which I guess is the point!
F OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Right so........ again, the title is apropos of nothing, except that it is a Muppets song that I love.  I had written in previous posts that like the title song to Avenue Q, it "Sucked to be me".  I would like to be the first to announce, that it no longer sucks to be me, it only mildly bites.  I think that I am truly trying to move forward in my life.  I still miss my Ima immensely, but it really does get easier.  I am happy with work, though incredibly busy.  I guess you cannot have it both ways, before I was bored with nothing to do, and now I am super busy.  Hashem should continue to be good to my boss, who really is a big ba'al tzedakah.  As far as the leaving of the person I thought loved me more than any other, apparently I was wrong.  I have made mistakes before, and always learned from them, so this is no different.
On a completely different note, I was able to listen to the ORIOLES game today because i brought a radio with me to work.  In any case, they just beat up on the poor Kansas City Royals to no end.  The final was 12-3.  This too made me happy.  I have learned to be happy with myself, and with small things, that is a valuable lesson y'all.  I have also learned that I, by myself, am a person of value, and do not need anyone else to tell me so (although compliments are ALWAYS welcome!) In any case, that is all for this evening from hot, humid, sticky B-more.

Well in my case it is "what a difference a month makes"  On June 16, I was preparing for my job to end (last day was the 17th) and I had NO prospects for a new one.  Today my boss reminded me that we need to get me on the health plan!  Woohoo, no more Artscroll plan for me! For those of you that do not know, the Artscroll plan is when you have no health insurance, so you daven a lot! Anyway, even tho my throat hurts,  I am in a EXCELLENT mood, so have a SUPREME Shabbos! F OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ah of my dreams

Ok the title is apropos of absolutely NOTHING! I am just stopping by to let you know that they like me, they really like me!! Ok my sad Sally Field moment is over. My boss took me aside today and told me that he likes me, and thinks that it is working out. At which point, I made a silent woohoo sound in my head. Good thing he cannot hear those! Anyway that is where we stand. I would like you all to know that I do think about most of you even if I do not keep in touch so well. I have no internet access at work, which makes it difficult. Anyway..... F OUT!!!!

ok so long story short, I was excused (no need to read any further if that is what you were searching for.) Now the LONG version.
I get there at 12:30 like a good girl. I sit there, I sit there some more. At 1:45 the judge comes in, and thanks us for our patience, and says that they are trying to work on some things. They are sorry for all the hurry up and wait, but just to be patient for a while longer. So I wait, and I wait some more. Then at 3;57 the clerk comes in and tells us to go to the courtroom we were in yesterday where they FINALLY start jury selection. Which by the way, is a tedious process. So they get to my number and asked if I was acceptable to the state, which I was, then asked if I was acceptable to the defense, which I was NOT! B"H To add to the freak out factor, the defendant is staring at you the whole time!! Today we learned that he contracting to have 2 of the witnesses murdered, and this a*&hole knows my name?????
F OUT!!!!!!!!!

ok, so I had jury duty today. It was some special case, with a visiting judge, and a whole hoohaa. So we have to be there atr 8:15, but they do not start till 12. Thankfully I had a friend with me (yay chaya!!!!!!!!) Then they asked endless questions, and I finally was able to tell the judge that I am my only source of support and if I do not work, then I do not get paid. Since it is a murder trial I aslo told him that my cousin was murdered, and that would color my view. So finally at like 4:45 they read off a whole bunch of numbers that are excused. I was NOT among them. Then they took roll call, then dismissed a whole bunch more people. Again, I was not among them. Then at 5, they go, well we are not able to pick a jury today, so you need to come back tomrorow at 12:30. My faith in the justice system is now non-existent!!!!!!!
F OUT!!!!!!!!!!!

I apologize for not writing for a whole week. Mea culpa. I have been wicked busy. Working for a caterer right before the 3 weeks is HARD. We had 2 bar mitzvahs, a bbq, a office party, and a wedding this week. All before shkia on Monday. WOW! I tell you what, WOW! Anyway, at the end of the day Friday he told me to come in at 9 on Monday, so I guess that is good. Even if he changes his mind and decides he does not want me, then I am still no worse off than I was 2 weeks ago (thanks jude), right? Anyway, I went out and bought some work clothes today, and now am sitting at home, listening to the Orioles game, and NOT going to fireworks!
F OUT!!!!!!
