Shavua Tov

Like the title says...... Hope everyone had a Shabbat Shalom. I had a great time as S&C's house. Their kids are so so so so so cute. I love going there cause we have been friends a long time, and C knows me really really really well. No one can make fun of other people with me quite like she can! I am watching Sex & the City now (finally catching up on the last season which I missed). I think I am gonna hit the hay soon tho.

Pre-emptive strike

I am finally getting around to writing a post. I had a stomach bug that kicked my butt earlier this week. I went to work Tuesday, and about an hour in, I was done. UG!!!!!!!!!!!!
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!!! Anyway, gonna go lay down and read ( I know the exciting life I lead), have a good night and a good Shabbos y'all.
F OUT!!!!!!!
p.s a very good friend of mine has an interview tomorrow, so everyone think good thoughts his way. GOOD LUCK R!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (you thought I forgot)

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.

Well another hectic week comes to a close. What an insane week. Purim was really nice. Work was what work usually is for me. I am really looking forward to Pesach, just for the week off. I am going to post a pic of the H kids from Tuesday, cause they were super cute! Have a great Shabbos everyone!

Just wanted to wish everyone a Freilichen Purim. That is it. Boring I know..... Please be careful if you are fulfilling "ad d'lo yada" by drinking. Myself, I will fulfill the Mitzvah by taking a nap!

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.
F OUT!!!

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
