I am sorry, chatasi, mea culpa, whatever..... I have not written for a while. Let's see.... Spent first Shabbos of Chanukah at the R's in NYC! Caught a ride with the H's (thank you thank you thank you!!!) On Sunday we went to Boro Park to see SM grandmother who lives right near Yeshivas Bobov, hence the pic. Then we went to Dougies, which I have not been in a long time so that was nice. Tuesday I went to the K's, which was very nice. Second Shabbos of Chanukah I was at the H's which is always nice. Ravens spanked Pittsburgh which makes me happy, and are going to the playoffs, which also makes me happy. That is really it from here in non-snowy B-More.

The Ravens won!!!!!!!! A big HUGE woohoo from me. Not only did the beat the hell out of Pittsburgh 27-0, but they now move to 9-2 which is the best record they have ever had. Also they all but obliterated the Steelers chance at the playoffs! Woohoo!!!!!!!!!!
Check out this article, the Ravens sacked the Steeler quarterback 9 times! 9 times!!! Bueller, Bueller... Anyone, Bueller!?!?

Baby on parade!

MAZAL TOV J & S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yehoshua Adam is GORGEOUS! As honorary Auntie I may be a little biased, but I think he is stunning. I am so glad the Bris is over, now maybe you guys can rest a little. For the rest of you, the baby formerly known as Baby Boy K had his Bris this morning, and entered the Bris of Avraham Avinu just beautifully. Zeh haKatan Gadol Yihiyeh. Check him out, he is a beautiful baby!

Obligatory post

At the request of S here is a post. I am still job hunting, nothing new there. I am still on the Remicade, and it is still mostly working. On Sunday, I went to a family birthday party in New Jersey, There is nothing like 8 2 year olds to make you completely knackered (tired). It turns out that they are doing construction on 95 in both directions, which added approximately an hour to my trip in both directions. That brought my travel time to close to 6 hours, in contrast to the time I was actually at my cousins house which was about 3 hours. Enclosed are pics of te birthday girl, who in this photo has just taken her frosting smeared hands and face and wiped them all over me, and her super cute brother Joey. That is all from here.

Gmar Tov

Just wanted to wish everyone a Gmar chatima tova, as the title so cleverly suggests. I hope y'all had a great yom tov, or a good weekend. If I have done or said anything too offend anyone here, then I sincerely hope you will forgive me. Anyway, Went to Dr. today, had a treatment, can't wait for it to kick in. We discussed the fact that my finger will probably never straighten all the way. I can live with that, since I have most of the use back in the finger. Still waiting to hear from the unemployment people. That is all from here. Have a good week everyone.

New Year

It is getting to be that time. Just wanted to wish everyone a ksiva vChasima Tova. Alternately if you read this after Rosh Hashana, which most of you, then Gmar Chasima Tova. May you be written and inscribed for a good year. I hope that this new year brings everyone happiness and healthiness, and blessings aplently. Ok I think I am done being sappy.

On a completely different note, check out the cuteness of the little boy eating pasta, I have known this baby since he was about 12 hours old, and it constantly amazes me how he is growing!

I DROVE TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ok, it was like a 4 minute drive to my friends house for dinner, but still it is a start. I was also able to walk up her steps with considerably less pain then normal, and I was able to help her get stuff onto the table. I did not have to sit, and do nothing, it was great!
Oh, here is a pic of some of the H kids, cause I know it has been a while since y'all have seen any.

Here we go again

Hello friends,
Just a short update on my life.
*so far, no job, but I am ever hopeful, and I have faith in Hashem, so I know something will turn up.
* I was denied unemployment benefits, but am, even now, drafting an appeal.
*I have the BEST friends in the world. In particular SMH who puts up with an insane amout of kvetching from me. Also of note lately is A who took the time to call me and leave a really nice, uplifting voice mail when I needed it the most.
*I started a new arthritis/psorisis treatment today. This was a VERY long process. The drug is called Remicade and it is (in concert with the Methetrexate) supposed to alleviate most of my symptoms. I sat in a recliner for 3 hours while the IV was administered. I did not have any negative reactions which is really good, and after just 1 treatment, I have already experienced some relief. I thought the nurse was nuts when she said I might feel better today. I go back in 2 weeks then a month after that, then 6 weeks after that, and so on, and so forth.
That is pretty much it from here. Have a good night all.

Mazal Tov!

I went to New Jersey today (I know, I know, poor me). My first cousin had a baby boy, and those are rare in my family, so this was a BIG deal. Anyway, the Bris was today at 1 pm. My dad came and picked me up this morning, and off we went. It was certainly the most interesting Bris I have ever been to. Anyway, feast your eyes on Joseph Nathan Lindenbaum (Yosef Natan) the newest memeber of the covenant of Avraham Avinu, and his big sister Beth, who is just too cute!

Nachamu Nachamu Ami

So the 3 weeks, 9 days, Tisha B'Av are all over. B"H we can have some happiness now. I don't know if it is my unemployment, or my current medical condition, or the situation in the Holy Land, or what, but I certainly had NO problem being sad during the 3 weeks. Hopefully now that we are done some good things will happen.
I wanted to post what is a reproduction of my absolute favorite picture here. The original picture is from after the Israeli's have claimed the Kotel, and I think about it on Yom Yerushalayim every year. Anyway, hope everyone has a good week, here is hoping we all have Soros Tovos!

Today is Tuesday. Nothing exciting is going on. Currently the American League is losing the All-Star game, but I do not care so much since I have taken half a percoset. I am eligible for a new phone, and there are some really cute ones I could get.
I got to leave work a little bit early today because there was a black out, and clearly nothing I can do in that situation. I took the opportunity to go visit the H's which I have not done in a LONG time. I really really miss going there. :-(
My friend J came to visit this weekend, and we had a really nice time. We did a grand total of NOTHING since I am broken, but it was so nice to see him, and I am glad that he is doing well in his new job in Philly.
D, thanks for the Susan Kates files, I am loving it.
R, Sorry to hear about Syd. Let me know if you hear anymore.
That is all from here.

No interesting title.

I had a lovely visit from the P's yesterday. I have not seen them since October. That fact is really sad considering that they live in Silver Spring, which is clearly not the other end of the world. Anyway, we had a lovely visit, and I got to see baby A, who is not such a baby anymore. She is really getting big, KE"H. She will be a year old at the end of the month. She is so cute, and she crawls EVERYWHERE!!!!

I have not posted in a while. I still have nothing exciting to say. Certainly not as much as my friend over at , in any case, I just thought I would sort of post something so y'all knew I was alive.
My sister came to visit on Tuesday. We went out to dinner with Carrie, which was nice. We hung out a little then went to sleep since I had to go to work Wed. That was it. I guess I will see her again when she swings by in 6 months or so for Thanksgiving.
So that is all from here. I hope other people are having a more exciting life than me.

Check out the giggle on MM's face! I really have nothing new to ad. I am still not getting better. I do not appear to be getting much worse either, so that is somthing. Anyway, I am going to go to bed. I have been zonked out and feeling weird for hours (pain pills and ambien) but cannot seem to find a comfy position in my new comfy bed!

hello world

I have not posted in a while, and that is pretty much cause I have nothing new to say. I went to the Doctor on Wednesday, and he told me that it had not been enough time for the meds to work, so I guess it will be a while longer.
I spent Shabbos with the Efrex family, at the H's, and it was really nice. I am sure it would have been nicer, had I not been gorked out on pain meds, but in general it was nice. I met baby efrex, who I had only seen in pics before. He is super cute, and appears to be quite fond of his "doda Faye" which is nice. I am including some pics of baby efrex, and of me and his mommy.
Thank you to all of my friends who have been calling and visiting and generally being concerned. I appeciate all of your well wishes.

All Hail Broadway!

Something I actually miss about New York. The theater. Tonight the Tony Awards are on, and I am enjoying them immensely. I want to see so many of the plays, but I know it will not happen. I did happen to think the bits with the knights from Spam-a-lot was a riot.
Have a good night.
F OUT!!!!!!!!!!


Ok that is clearly me on the left there....... My friend is quite the photog. Managed to make even me look good. Last night he took me and another friend to see a movie. The movie was good (I thought), but it was tough to sit through. I cannot wait for the day when I can sit through a 2 hour movie without pain, and when I can park the car in the parking lot and walk into the theater like a normal person. Unfortunately I do no tthink that is happening anytime soon.
On the plus side my good friends from Washington Heights are supposed to be coming for Shabbos, so that will be nice. I have never met their son, so that will be super cool. That is all for now. The Orioles play at 2 pm, so I will watch them later. Feel free to call!
Happy Sunday y'all

Just a quick medical update for the 4 of you that read this. I went to the podiatrst last night cause I am still in pain, and he decided that my orthotics need to be fixed. So I am still having pain from the arthritis in my feet, as well as pain from the orthotics, which are hopefully going to be better when they come back. Yesterday i woke up and I could not hear out of 1 ear. Today I went to the ENT who looked in my ear, and promptly invited me to go to the room with the giant microscope in it. He attached said microscope to my ear, then probed around with a long point thing (which HURT) then he administered drops, then he sucked up the whole thing with a vaccuum. The process was repeated like 5 times, which took close to an hour. The culprit? you may ask? PSORIASIS. I mean really people, in my inner ear! Is there no part of my body this stupid disorder will not mess with. In any case, he added 2 more meds to my regime, which brings my total to something like 8. ICK.
That is all for now. B"H I can hear again. I am going to bed now.

Holy Lack of Sleep Batman!

To all my friends who have kids,
I apologize! I know that you think that there is no reason that someone who does not have kids should not get great sleep every night. I am here to tell you, you are wrong! I just have been not sleeping well the last few nights (weeks). Hopefully it will get better, but currently it is just resulting in me being tired, and in pain when I wake up, which just makes me grumpy.
I may have the day off tomorrow, which would make me happy, but I will not know until later which is frustrating. Not that that is not the usual state of being with my job, but for once it would be nice to know in advance.
I went out last night with my friend, and discovered, that while sneakers impede my feet cause of the arthritis, sandals are even worse. I finally hobbled myself home around 3 am, tried to sleep, and failed miserably.
That is about where things stand here. I know, my life is so not exciting. Spartacus, thanks for taking care of me Thursday night. I hope to not have that particular reaction when I take the meds ever again, but hey it gave you something to talk to X about!
Have a great Sunday everyone!

Not progressing as I would like. I am in much too much pain for the amount of meds I am on............. (title stolen from Spartacus)

Saturday, May 20, 2006


Firstly, I hope everyone had a good Shabbos, or a fun weekend so far. Secondly, I want to apologize for my lack of blogging lately. I know some of you still read this, and I apologize. Most of you know that work has not been going so well lately, and that I have been in a lot of pain. As far as work goes, hopefully it will work itself out. As far as the pain goes, I got my first glimpse of hope in a long time this week. I went to see a rheumatologist (an appt. I made 3 weeks ago, but apparently the guy is hard to pin down) on Thursday. I was having a lot of trouble just walking, as I have been for a few months now. I finally shuffled my way into his office, and he said I looked like I was in a lot of pain. He spent a lot of time with me, both before and after the exam, and came to the conclusion that I have severe psoriatic arthritis. In short, he put me on lots of drugs, including a steroid to reduce the swelling in my feet, and so far B"EH it seems to be working. The treatment for the psoriatic arthritis will take a bit longer to show itself. Between 4-6 weeks to be exact. There are some nasty side effects, but we discussed them, and it appears that this is the more advantageous way to go. The particular treatment that I am on is said to be effective in about 80% of cases, so here is hoping! Anyway, I am going to go put heat on my hip (I have bursitis too) and watch the Orioles lose. Have a great night y'all!

Just a quick post to say Good Shabbos to everyone. I hope that everyone has had a successful week. As for me, I just glad that Shabbos is here.

Hello Cyberland!

I know it has been a while since I posted, and I apologize. For those of you have been stuck listening to me complain lately, I apologize. G-D willing, things will get better, cause they kind of have to at this point! I had a totally weird dream in which I met Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp, who are 2 of my fave broadway actors. It was such a tangible dream, I can remember what I asked them. Does anyone else think that is weird?
Complete change in subject....... The Orioles are still above .500, which is mad cool! There is no chance that they are going to fall below that today either, because they do not play! I am diggin the positive results of the season so far.
I hope that everyone had a nice Pesach, and for those of you still counting with a Bracha, hatzlacha raba! I am hoping that a plan that I have begun to put into action comes to fruition. The Efrex's might actually be able to come down here for a Shabbos after Shavuous, which I am mad excited about! Can't wait guys!
Anyway, that is all for now,

I woke up on the first day of Pesach (thursday, for those of you not in the know), and the toes on my left foot were all swollen. It hurt terribly to put any pressure on the toes or on the ball of my foot. I could not put on shoes, it hurt to walk up stairs. There was absolutely NOTHING I could do about it until Yom Tov ended. Today (well I guess it was technically yesterday), I went to the dr. who informed me that I have multiple stress fractures in my feet. I know, you are asking yourself, F, how the hell did that happen? I HAVE NO FREAKIN IDEA!!!!!!!!!!!!! Doc says it happens from walking an excessive amount, standing on a hard surface an excessive amount, or just bad luck. Anyway, sadly that is not all that is currently broken. I currently look like I have the plague...... My psorasis picked a super excellent time to exacerbate. My right ring finger does not bend, and I have back problems. Despite this I am healthy, and thank G-D I have really good friends. Spartacus, I dunno if you read this, but just remember.... You ARE the Juggernaut! Not only that, but we are gonna go see Rent, really we are! C, I had a good time tonite, good friends and good conversation are an undervalued commodity. A, I can't believe that we have not seen each other in like 12 years, and it is like no time has gone by. Those are just the friends I have seen in the last 36 hours or so. Oh and SM, you are always there for me, and I am really really lucky to have you for a friend. My life is richer for having all of you (even the ones I do not mention), and I know that G-D truly has blessed me. Ok I know I am getting mushy. I am gonna go try out my new bed, and hopefully this is the beginning of not being in pain for me.

If just my finger would start working again (who has arthritis in 1 finger????), and my toes would stop hurting, I could work on the rest.... I bought a new bed, which is either coming tomorrow or Monday. and that is supposed to help with the back and hip pain. I do not understand the toes and the finger tho... SO FRUSTRATING! It appears that my yom tov was better than S' tho. Certainly better than A's. Not that they read this, but YOU DESERVE BETTER!

T minus 3 days and counting.......

I have cleaned my house for Pesach. All I have left to do is Kasher the sink, cover the counters, and put the plastic on the table. Oh yeah, I do not have any food either. I cleaned all freakin day today. Scrubbing the stove, scrubbing the fridge, scrubbing the floor. My back is killing me. I need a back rub. I need a new bed. I need for these in between days to be over. Tomorrow I will go to work, and then oh yeah, I have to clean my car. I totally forgot about that till now. CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Definitely need to clean my car. As Pesach gets closer I am getting more apprehensive about fire. I know it is irrational, and I am mostly ok. I should be sleeping. I was kinda waiting up on the off chance that a friend would need some company on their drive home, but no call, so I am guessing that either they stayed where they were, or they are all good. Anyway, I have crossed over onto babbeling now, so I am going to go lay in my torture chamber of a bed, and try to get some rest.

1 down, 161 to go

Todays post is brought to you by the letter "W" for win. The Orioles opening day was today, and I figured that, at the most, I would get to listen to the tail of the game on the radio when I got home from work. Mid-morning, I get a phone call from my roommate. She got tickets for todays game. My first thought, "that is so not fair, you do not like baseball!" My boss heard this, and said that I should go. It was SO MUCH FUN!!!!! When we got there, at the bottom of the second, the O's were losing 2-0. They came back in that inning. They gave up the lead again in the top of the 3rd. The o's did catch up eventually, and wound up hitting 4 home runs total. First Miguel Tejada, then in a subsequent inning Luis Matos followed by Melvin Mora in a back to back home run slug fest. The pic is from after Melvin Mora had just hit his. Check out the sign above the Jumbo-Tron!!!!!!!!! In the 7th inning Jeff Conine hit one. So excited that he is back. So so far, so good. I am a big believer in "begin in the way in which you mean to go on", so this may be a good indicator. Anyway, on a separate note, everyone should watch "Angels in America. It made me cry.

So I had a nice IM conversation with my fried ECS today. I have not seen him in years, but we talk occasionally on IM, and tonite we had a really good conversation. He is a good guy, really good guy. Sorry if I rattled your chain, E.
I got a message from S today. She appears to be back in the swing of things. I mean she asked for my email address, and she sent one, so she is connected to the outside world again. Hi S!!!

Pesach (ACK!!!!!)

Ok so, I am supposed to be Pesach cleaning today. I did clean out my bureaus and refold my clothes. I flipped my mattress and changed my sheets. I guess I did accomplish most of what I wanted to. I finished a blanket for my friends daughter, who is like 2-3 months old already. Now I just have to remember to mail it. Tomorrow night I think I will deal with the surfaces of my bureau, and maybe the stove, since I know I am not going to get any help with the cleaning around here. On the left is a pic of me, this is what I did when I was wasting time this morning. I am so good at avoiding what I am supposed to do! Anyway, I am here, feel free to distract me.

Sunday Sunday Sunday....

oh whatever. Now that S is married, and does not have internet access no one reads this anyway.
My Abba came up today. We hung out for a while, it was nice. We went to Shabsi's, and I bought a Megillas Esther, cause it dawned on me that while I USED to have several copies they all burned in the fire. I bought one that has big print since I am getting old. It also has all the audience participation parts underlined which is good for me.
Now I am home, and just chilling, even though I should be making Shalach Manos. I am just feeling blah, so I am not. I do have a really really cute theme this year tho. I am SOOO looking forward to Purim. I do not have to work this year, which is cool. Anyway, the pic is my dad and the H girls looking at the megilla that CHH made.

Sunday Morning...

Good morning y'all. Here in scenic Baltimore, it is warm and overcast and muggy. A gross portent of things to come I gather. I hate summer in Baltimore!
I spent Shabbos at the H's. It was nice. Friday night was relaxing except for a weird work nightmare that I had. I need to stop doing that btw: no more bringing work with me. Anyway... Friday night was relaxing. Shabbos morning we all got ourselves together and went to shul to hear Parshas Zachor. I forget every year how short it is. All that scurrying around for like 3 psukim (passages). The K's came for lunch, and it was very nice. After lunch I suggested that both the Mrs. & Mr. take naps, cause they looked beat. Mrs. took me up on my offer, and Mr. went off to shul to learn. I took the 2 girls, and the baby boy and went for a walk. He fell asleep in the stroller and I did not want to take him out, so I stayed outside and rocked him in the stroller for a while. All in all it was great.
After Shabbos we made Y's costume for Purim, he is truly the cutest Chassid ever! That is him in the pic. Today my Abba is supposed to come up, but I do not know if he actually is, b/c he does not answer his phone!

Anyway, I gotta go make bread for Purim Seudah!

Farewell Kelev........

My dad called me this morning at work, and told me he finally had my kitty put down. That is him on the left. The vet said that he was not going to get any better, so they gave him a sedative, and my dad held him, and he just went to sleep. I am going to miss him so much. I know he was a cat, not a human, but we had him since I was in 8th grade. He was such a cute thing, and so affectionate.
Anyway, that is the sum total of what is going on in my life. My heel spur is not getting any better. I went out and bought a new pair of tennis shoes tonite in the hopes that that would help. We will see I guess. Have a good night everyone.

Ok, trying to add a picture to my post, but failing miserably. ARGH stupid computer issues, stupid internet issues, stupid dialogue. Anyway............. So today is Tuesday, which means I went to the H's for dinner. At some point today I realized that Purim is a week away, and I do not have a megillah, cause it BURNED! My dad is coming up Sunday so maybe we will go to the book store together, and go shopping. So anyway, after dinner, I gave baths, like I usually do. The 3 year old exhibited her new talent. She tries to pour the water over her own head to get the shampoo out. This induces lots of splashing and giggling, but little actual rinsing. I need to go food shopping tomorrow night, to buy stuff for Shalach manos. That should be fun. I am absolutely zonked, so I am gonna go to bed. G'nite y'all

Shavua Tov!

Hey Y'all! Hope everyone had a restful Shabbos. I read 2 and a half books. Well I finished a book, read another one, then almost read an entire other book. The first one I have read before, and so I enjoyed it. It is 1 of a series by J D Robb, who is also Nora Roberts. She write mindless books, but for some reason, I really like them. The second one I was really unimpressed with. "Romance Reader" by Pearl Abraham. I read the whole thing, but I was unimpressed. Now I am reading a fun novel called "The Devil Wears Prada" by Lauren something. She is FUNNY. All in all, my friends Erev Shabbos wish for a "restful Shabbos" came true, so thanks Pink! I am waiting for a call from SM to see if I am babysitting tonight or not. Anyway, I am burning a CD of oldies music, which I love, and the songs I picked just reminded me of my mom, especially "Leavin on Jet Plane", so I am happy, but teary at the same time. I have no plans for tomorrow, except to try and rest my stupid heel, so the damn spur goes away. I should be home if anyone wants to contact me.
On a different note, I spoke to Mrs. Josh on Friday. That was cool. I hope that she was able to get the cleaning she wanted done before her first married Shabbos. She sounds good. I think that married life will agree with her and her hubby. Maybe now that Sheva Brachos are over they can begin to settle down, and maybe both GET SOME SLEEP!!!!!
Anyway, I have no big plans for tonight either so feel free to message or call.

What a day

Today was not the best day at work. The heel spur needs to go away. Things are beginning to calm down after S & J's wedding which is good. However, I have discovered that just cause you are tired does not mean that life does not go on. I realized that today was Thursday, and I have not gone food shopping, I did not do any shopping for Shabbos, and I do not really care. I was at work until after 7 with no lunch break, and by the time I got home, I was too tired to go anywhere.
I watched Skating with Celebrities tonight, it is a fun show. I have no idea why I shared that. Anyway, I just wanted to post cause I have not for a while (not that anyone signs anyway). Have a good Shabbos/fun weekend y'all

For those of you who do not know, the above line comes from the Sheva Brachot (seven blessings) that a bride and groom get in the week after their wedding. I went to one of these party dealies for S & J tonite. It was a lot of fun. So nice to see them all married. I realize that this is all good for them, and they are, G-D willing, going to build a beautiful family together. However, to be totally selfish, I am really really going to miss her. I mean A LOT!!! She truly kept me sane (yes I AM sane) for the last few months. I need to reiterate here, to whoever reads this, that I am really happy for her, and for them. I think they are a great couple, and that they are really good for each other, but I am having a lot of trouble with her leaving. I know it sounds bad, but there it is. Anyway, that is the bride and the groom there on the top left. G'nite y'all.

MAZAL TOV!!!!!!!!!!!

I apologize that I did not have a chance to write my usual Erev Shabbos entry. I was busy trying to get the apt. ready for S' Shabbos Kallah. Which eventually I did. We had a bunch of girls over, and it was really really really nice. This morning I went and got my hair done (such a deal), then rand errands for S&J for a while. Eventually I was allowed to go back to my apt and get changed and all. Then I ran over to the hall, and WENT TO A WEDDING! They are married! MAZAL TOV guys! I know that you will not get a chance to read this, but I am so so happy for you, and as your start your lives as husband and wife (yikes!) I wish you all the Mazal and Bracha in the world. You should be zoche to BNB (Build a Bayis Ne'eman), which I know that you will do together. You complement each other so nicely. Anyway I am clearly running on, so I will go now. Just be happy, ok.

S, we love you! If I am tired, then you must be exhausted. I hope that all went well getting friend from airport. Chosson is really nice, I know you knew that before. Anyway for the rest of you, making a wedding is apparently much more work than I suspected. Add that to the fact that I am not sleeping well, and you get one tired F. I cannot wait for Sunday. The wedding is gonna be so so so so much fun. I took care of part of that tonite when SM and I picked up shtick. We got good stuff too! Anyway, I am going to go relax till D gets here with the cake and stuff for the Shabbos Kallah. Oh and BTW, I decided that the Shabbos Kallah will still be fun even if my apt is a bit messy. Hamayvin Yavin!

Tuesday.... (w/out pics)

Ok, first of all..... A 3 year old, and a 6 year old move a LOT of water in a bath tub! I got soaked! My cousin called while I was trying to rinse soap out of the 6 year olds hair. She had good news. IY"H in August I will be a cousin again! B'sha'a Tova. Second of all, it appears that we did not make as much progress as I had hoped on Sunday. To put it a different way, if we made progress it was re-done yesterday. I bought all the paper goods for this weekend, so that is good. I made my shopping list for tomorrow, and I also need to go pick up the shtick (fun stuff) tomorrow. Thursday I need to go to Seven Mile Market (G-D help me) and get the deli. I still think I need to take Friday off, but it is NOT gonna happen. Oh yeah, on a side note, I have NOTHING to wear to the wedding. Oh well! I am gonna go wait for DH to bring a table, and take a mattress.... G'nite y'all

Hello People............
So I went to THW's Bar Mitzvah today. It was so nice. I know that it is hard for him to speak in public (he has Asperger's) but he did a beautiful job. I cried (I am a sap.) After that I went to SM's brother in law's Lchaim. Cause she said I wanted to! So I went and I helped clean up. The first pic is of the H family all dressed up, the second one is the Bar Mitzvah boy. Now I am home and trying to help S not freak out. I think we are making progress with the seating, although it is slow. We made arrangements for someone to pick up her parents at the airport, and the Shabbos Kallah is just about planned. In short, we are getting stuff done but it is slow. Anyway, have a good night y'all.....

Ok, first of all, it is freakin cold outside! I went to Rite Aid to pick up a prescription tonite, and it was absolutely an excersize in frustration. I firmly believe that if you work in a pharmacy you need to speak ENGLISH! She tells me that my script is not there. I insist that it is there, cause I know the doctor called it in. No, not here, she insists. I (calmly) suggest that she look again. Magically it is there. Go figure. Then I made the HUGE mistake of asking her if she knew where something was. I mean, it is not like I did not look on my own first. I went to the aisle marked with the product that I needed, it just was not there. Whatever.
After that I went to the H's to babysit. MM did NOT want to go to sleep. I mean even a little. You could see that he was exhausted. it was almost as if he was saying "no, no, I won't fall asleep, there is stuff to see!" Eventually he went down, B"H. Anyway, Me and my Ben & Jerry's are gonna go hang out then I am going to bed. (I lead such an exciting life)

Just wanted to wish everyone a good Shabbos. Work has been crazy this week. I hope that it calms down a bit next week. Boss asked me if I wanted to come in Sunday. Let me see, do I want to come in on my only day off? UMM.... NO!!!!!!!!!1 In any case, I have a real excuse this time. I have a Bo BaYom (actual date of the Bar Mitzvah), and I have a L'Chaim (engagement party). Anyway, I need to go get ready to bring in the holy Sabbath. Have a good Shabbos Y'all!!!!

I did what I normally do on Tuesday. The abberation last week was just too much for me. I was thrown off all week! So I went to give baths. I got soaked, like I always do. The girls seem to think it is really funny to splash. Normally I think it is funny, but I have not been able to get warm all day. So after the bath I was cold, and wet, which made me colder. On the plus side, I got a spot right in front of the building. If you know Pickwick, you know that is EXCITING! Anyway, This is the most recent pic of the H gang. Cute, aren't they? I am gonna go shower, then crawl into bed and watch the Olympics. G'nite y'all.

It snowed..... a lot! I dug out my car this morning, took forever. I looked out this afternoon, some yahoo and dumped snow in front of my car. That just ticks me off. At least I turned my car around so that I can pull out forward tomorrow. I am supposed to return Kelev to my dad tomorrow, we will see if that happens. He (Abba) did get home safely from Florida, so that is good. I think that I am going to read some then turn in early. G'nite y'all

Not Dead!!!

For those of you that care I made it home from Hunt Valley without killing myself or anyone else. It was snowing when I left, but I followed all the safety tips anyone has EVER given me. I am posting a pic of the hotel room, just so you can see how nice it was. I slept so well. I am home now. Watching the olympics, which gives me something to do.
Last Sunday, I went out with my friend all day, which was really nice. The pics of the scary fish, and the Medievil looking stuff is from there. We had a good time. I am sorry it took me so long to post pics, but I was busy with the NEFESH conference this week. I am not certain that I am making sense, but make of it what you will.
I will share one thought before I go. I went to a shiur (academic lecture) today. The subject was "How does Bitachon (faith in G-D) affect anxiety and depression?" It was AMAZING! He proved, with empirical evidence, that the more one has Bitachon, the less anxious, and depressed they are going to be. It was really cool. I was impressed.

Boker Tov (good morning) Y'all! It is 10 to 8, and I have been up for like 2.5 hours, which blows. I am soo soo soo soo tired. This week has been exhausting. I did not leave work till 7 last night, which was the latest. The earliest I left work this week was 5;30, and that was Monday, before the insanity began. I am really looking forward to Shabbos at the hotel, I just hope I have enough time to come home after work, and do liitle things, like shower. Anyway, time to get going.
Have a great Shabbos!

a change of pace

I did NOT go give baths tonite. SM went to the "Women's Showcase of Talent" to sell chinese auction tickets (no, you don't win a Chinese person). She did not stay for the showcase, and I was not interested in going alone. Instead I went to my friend J. He is my friend the soldier (well one of them), and I have not seen him in a while. He is doing well, B"H. He had some minor surgery today, but on the whole seems to be adjusting to the amputation remarkably well. I also saw M, who I have not seen in a LONG time. Anyway, that is all from here. I know, I am boring. Y'all will have to deal. Oh Pink: thanks for the computer help, and for listening to me complain, as always, it is appreciated!

Well, I guess my boss will be happy. Superbowl XL is now history. The Seahawks did not suck, but Pittsburgh was better. Ppl from Pittsburgh are gonna be INSUFFERABLE now. Darnit! There were at least 2 calls that I think should have gone Seattle's way, but I am not an official, and I do not get paid by the NFL. Gonna go watch the presentation of the trophys now, then off to bed. By the way, the only cool thing about the Steelers winning is that Jerome Bettis gets to go out in his hometown, on a high note. That is kind of cool, but I still wish they had lost. Watching Trophy presentation now, and the MVP is.................... Hines Ward! Totally thought it would be Bettis.
As a side note, as much as I do not like the Steelers, and I really really don't, Bill Cower is a classy guy. it galls me to admit that they deserved to win, but they really did. They fought tooth and nail to get to the playoffs this season, and their work paid off. I really wanted them to lose though.

Hello Y'all

I hope everyone had a nice Shabbos. I did, but it was kind of lonely. Tonite I went out with S. We went to Wal-Mart, and bought all sorts of necessary stuff. Then we went to SM's house, and hung out there for a bit until she was ready to go out. The 3 of us went to Goldberg's. We had a really really nice time. There were teeny-boppers there, but they were kind of innocuous, unlike last weeks kids. That is us at the left. I am on the right(Obviously) and the one in the head covering is SM, we have been friends since HS. The other one is S, she is my friend who is getting married 3 weeks from tomorrow. I am so lucky to have friends like them. I know I complain an inordinate amount, but they are always there for me. Each of them in their own way let me know that it was not so bad to be 30. I have other good friends too, including a couple who preceeded me to 30. So in short, thanks to all my friends. I may not say it often enough, but I am truly thankful for all of you.

Sunday Sunday Sunday!!!

I have NO idea where the title of this post comes from. I think it might be a monster truck rally ad. I know, I have deep seeded emotional issues! Anyway, went to Rockville today. It was interesting to say the least. Pink: Thanks for listening to me bitch. I needed a friend, and you were there. Brat: What can I say, it appears that he kinda caught up in his own world. If you need me, call me! So I got a new purse today, that was fun. I love my dad, really I do, but we are having some serious issues right now. I have included a picture of my super cute (but very old) cat. He is coming to live with me next week, while Abba is in Florida. I am hoping that his thyroid meds kick in, cause otherwise my dad is going to have him put down. Anyway, have a good night y'all.

Sat Night......

So I hope that everyone has had a great weekend so far. SM and I went out tonight (see pic to the left) for my birthday. We went to the local pizza shop, had a slice, and split some ice cream. While we were there a bunch of teenagers walked in and were all loud, and screamy. I looked at my friend, and she looked at me, and we decided that we were too old for this!
I am going to my dads tomorrow, that should be exciting. Sometime next week I am getting a new roommate. Well not really. My cat is going to move in for a bit. I hope it works. Anyway, I am zonked, so that is all for now.

There are times when getting up alone, having no one to say good bye to in the morning, coming home alone, having no one to say hello to, having no one to say good night to, and going to bed alone really really blows!

Ok I have nothing really new to add. I am on the phone with my sister, and she is so cool. She is a teacher, and she is so good at it. I am so proud of her. I wonder if she knows that.
I am so sick of washing dishes. Really really really sick of it. Just thought that I would share that.
I am gonna post some pics of the H kids in all their adorableness. Just cause they are cute. Going there for Shabbos this week, which is good cause I do not have to cook. Not that I mind cooking, but it seems kind of pointless for 1 person. Anyway, since I have bored you all, I am going to go.

S.... I enjoyed our evening. Conversation with you is never boring. I will definitely miss you when you get married and move away. I will miss you even if you get married and don't move away. I am just all melancholy tonight. BLAH!

First of all.. Mrs. Likro, if you are reading this please please please contact me. I am beginning to wonder.
Second of all.. Happy Birthday Abba, and Elan.
Third of all, who the hell fed the Steelers super play pills? They are scoring on offense, they are not turning the ball over, they are blocking on defense and not allowing Denver to score. In short they are doing everything right. When the hell did they gel together like this? I really do not like the Steelers

Hello all. Dateline Sat night..... Well Shabbos is over, and once again I have big plans for this evening....... NOT..... I am finishing a Laurell K Hamilton novel. She is a naughty naughty woman. Kinda kinky in fact. I am possibly going to take a shower. I am definitely going to have some sort of dinner, then I am going to read some more. To cap off this lovely evening, I will go to bed. I know, I know, you all want to be me, I lead such an exciting life! I got my "Rent" movie poster. I am so excited about it. Now, what is so exciting about a movie poster? Well, I am glad you asked. First of all, I am a "Rent-Head" which means I like to poster all by itself, but second of all the entire poster is in HEBREW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How cool is that? I will be around tonight if anyone wants to talk to me.

A Difference of Opinion.....

The chest congestion, and cough and stuff has not gone away, so Tuesday, as promised, I called the Doctor. Office called back yesterday, and said I could come in today. So I left work and went to the Doctor. I go into the exam room, and wait for him. he enters, and I tell him in no uncertain terms that "I am NOT sick!!!" He told me that I was wrong. He said he thought I had bronchitis. In fact, he didn;t think it, he was pretty darn certain. Darnit!! Just one winter I would like to not get sick. My good news was that I do not have ear infections. WOOHOO!(twirls finger in air), and that today my temp was only a little elevated. He gave me some anti-biotics, so I did not have to go to the pharmacy and spend money, and some other stuff, and told me up my fluid intake. To what I asked? I already drink close to 80 oz of water a day.... Whatever, I am sick of being sick, and in this case, not only am I sick, but I was WRONG! BLOWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Another Tuesday, Another.......... (you get the idea)

To my immediate left you will see the older 3 H children. Baby was off having supper when this came. Hey J from Detroit, can you believe how big those kids are? Anyway, I left work early today cause I had to go to the post office and mail a (VERY LATE) birthday gift to a friend, and I had to go to Rite Aid and get drugs. I got to the post office at like 20 after 4, and did not get done till like after 5. Dude, I had 1 SMALL package to mail, but so did the rest of the world. Before I left I spoke to my roommate, who asked me to buy her 2 2 cent stamps, no problem. Then on line I spoke to S, she asked for 2 books of regular stamps, no problem. Then SM called, "oh! you are at the post office, can you get me 2 books of 2 cent stamps, and 6 passport applications!" no problem. Did I remember to get myself stamps???? NO!!!!!!!!!!! So after post office, I went to H's for supper and baths, then I finally made it to Rite Aid at like 8:15. SO TIRED... Anyway, remember to keep my friends dad in your t'filos.

On a totally different note, I can't believe that the freakin steelers won. I have previously posted about my feelings for this awful team, but they have not subsided any since yesterday. Work is still going ok, but I know this weekend is gonna be killer. My saving grace is that the boss leave for Aretz (the Holy Land) next Tuesday, and will be gone for 10 days! WOO HOO!

I am going to guess that anyone who reads this knows me. As such, you should all know that I dislike the Indy football team. I dislike them so much, I will not even say their name. This is because they used to be the Baltimore football team, but snuck off like teenagers in the middle of the night! In any case, I don't like them, but I like them more than the Steelers! I really really really hate the Steelers! They just piss me off, push my buttons, whatever you want to say. I feel about the Steelers like I feel about the Yankees, give you an idea? In any case, those 2 teams are playing each other for a chance to go the AFC championship game. Everyone thought that Indy would win no problem, everyone except the Steelers! Damnit they are winning! End of the 3rd quarter, and the steelers are up by more than 2 touchdowns, that pisses me off!
Think nasty thoughts towards "The Bus" y'all!

Indy came ALMOST all the way back.. Almost being the operative word there. They had the chance to tie the game with like 25 seconds left with a field goal by Vanderjajgt, but he missed wide right, and I mean WIDE right! Oh well, it looks like the Steelers go on to Denver. Damn, GO Broncos I guess

Ok hope everyone had a nice Shabbos. Or Friday night, whatever. Off the bat, Friday it was like 55 degrees, and now it is FREEZING! DUDE!!!!!! and the wind!!! Oh my! Ok got that off my chest. Now I would like this damn cold to go away. Again I say it is not fair, I was sick last week. Oh well........ I babysat for MM tonite. Check him and his cute self out there on the left. The rest of the H kids were shluf, but technically, I was babysitting for them too. He is getting so big, K"EH. I can't get over how quickly they grow at this age.

TGFS (Thank G-D for Shabbos)

Well....... That turned out to be a long, painful week. Thank G-D it is OVER!! Next week will be better, I know it will. Although we do have a HUGE convention at the end of next week, which means boss will be insane, and by extension that I will be insane. On the other hand, by next week this chest congestion and hacking cough should be gone. If not, it is off to the doctor I go. Next Sunday is my dad's birthday, if anyone knows what I should get him, they should send me an email and let me know, cause I have NO IDEA. Anyway, I am off to the H's for Shabbos. have a good one y'all.

Listening to my "Launch" thingie, which is this really cool streaming radio thing from Yahoo, and I have customized my station which means it plays what I like, and not what I don't..... Anyway currently it is playing Meat Loaf, I am all about the Meat Loaf! (Note to J: wanna go to another Loaf show with you!) On phone with my sister now, she is weird.

Midweek ick!

Wednesdays blow!! Today was kind of blah, must have been the weather. As a side note, I am NOT SICK. I cannot be possibly, I mean I had the damn flu last week, so this chest constriction, and hacking cough must be my imagination. Today is my friend's 30th bday, so good thoughts and wishes to that person.
S called me when I was on my way home from work and said, "hey what are you doing for dinner?" I responded that I was not doing anything special. She replied "I am really in the mood for chicken." I knew what was coming next. She does not have any fleishig (meat) equipment in her kitchen. She wanted to use me for my fleishig oven! Since she offered to share I said yes. We shared a lovely meal of onion rings and chicken nuggets (like we were 7), and some conversation. I have come to the conclusion that it is not all my fault. Some of it is, and I was being selfish, but some of it just happened, NO ONE's fault.
I have to say since I am in a reflective mood, I never thought I would be 30 and alone. Now I know that some yahoo is out there reading this (ok maybe yahoo is a bad word) and going, "you are not alone f! We have been through this, you have lots of friends, and you have your faith, and you are not alone!" I know!!!!! Let me rephrase, I never thought I would be 30, not married, and no kids. More clear? I mean my big goal in life was to get married, and be at least a part time stay at home mom. In any case, that is clearly not in Hashem's plan for the right now. In the future IY"H (G-D willing), it will be. Ok I have obviously crossed into rambling. Time to go shluffie (sleep)

Another Tuesday, Another Bath.....

Ok, for those of you who wonder where I go every Tuesday, and are not fortunate enough to know them, this (to my left) should be a pic of the H family. Well most of them. Mr. H was out when I took this pic. Note the cutie in the blue "jamas", she is the one who has appropriated me. She is fond of running around the house going "my Faye, my Faye", which heck, I am all about. Anyway, I went to work today, that was not exciting. Then I went to the H's. The oldest boy (the one is the orange) asked how come I was going home, cause he thinks I live there. That was funny. Tomorrow I have to be at work at 8, which is not so bad. Anyway, I am rambling. Have a good night y'all
F OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Damn I hate being up later than I should be. an hour ago I was falling asleep, I mean dead to the world asleep. Now all of a sudden, I cannot fall asleep, and I know the ambien began to work cause I got that pass out feeling, which has now passed..... damn.... Oh well. I played with my new digial camera tonite, that was exciting, but I had lots of questions, which is why I called my friend Pink, he is computer expert. I may have inadvertatly hurt someone important to me tonight. I did not mean to, I just had a puter question..... shoot check out random pick of our fugly couch

I must be feeling better, I am going stir crazy. Have not been out of the house since about 4 yesterday afternoon. I am not going to go out tomorrow either, I do not think. I called my boss, and he told me to stay home tomrorow, and get all the way better, which is fine, except that when I am not there, things have a tendency not to get done, and I am gonna get it on Monday, but whatever, his choice. I need to have challah and stuff, and tonight I am certainly NOT up to going out and getting it. Maybe tomorrow I will feel better enough to get out for a little. We will see. I was on the phone with my friend today, and I was saying that I feel like I should accomplish something if I am not at work. I was told by said friend that my accomplishment would be to take care of myself, and get better. I guess he is right.. Damn I hate it when other people are right! I am usually better about being sick, but I just feel awful, although better than yesterday. I am going to go lay down again, cause I have no energy.
F OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
