Where to from here?

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?

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

Child labor. For or against?

I had a very busy week last week. I also averaged about 4 hours of proper sleep a night. To say that I was exhausted was an understatement. I was really looking forward to shabbos. No guests, I could just sleep the day away. I spoke to my kids very explicitly. " Mommy is VERY… Continue reading Child labor. For or against?

A time for thanks

I really appreciate those moments when nothing major is going on. Nothing earth-shatteringly wonderful, that you throw your eyes up to the heavens and beam a huge, transcendental 'thank-you' to G-d. It's moments like yesterday, when discussing the fact that I am hosting a shabbaton for 20 girls, and then a fund-raiser that night, and… Continue reading A time for thanks

Be careful what you wish for…

Been doing some thinking today. You see - I am very aware of complaining, as I am  of praying.  The power of each one. And really they are inextricably the same thing. 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…

To Ascend or not to Ascend, tha is the question!

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!
