I am almost not sure whether to post this, but since I have found myself in a few awkward situations, I feel I must say something. 2 1/2 weeks ago we left for our vacation up north, in the country. Earlier that morning I had my regular monthly check up with my OBGYN. I knew… Continue reading Where to from here?
Look, I know I am wrong. But I am also really desperate. I have adorable kids - I really do. I love them with all my heart - really. Tonight's blog is dedicated to one of them. My little Miss G.

My 8 yr old daughter came up with the idea of throwing a surprise party for her best friend. At our house of course.

Ever since I was a little girl, I can remember to - as far back as I can remember - praying to G-d… Continue reading Be careful what you wish for…
Good morning world. Lots to think about this morning. I think I have lost the battle for the time being. I spoke to my Rabbi, and he seems to think that going to Israel now, with my fam, would not be a good thing. He thinks that if sugar-daddy - had to stop working, and… Continue reading To Ascend or not to Ascend, tha is the question!
Gutte Vog everybody! Shabbos has just come out. I was asked to speak on a panel of women, to a group of grade 8 (14yr olds) tonight. I speak 3-4 times a year to groups about how I became Frum.
