Pesach 2008

I'd like to say that I haven't posted since I've been too busy scrubbing my house for Pesach and being insane like I usually am at this time of year. That, however, would be a lie. I am THRILLED to say that we are closing our house and going away for ALL of Pesach (eat your heart out)! We are going to New York/New Jersey for the very looonnnngggg chag (and 2 sedarim - ugh). We will start out at my friend Melissa in NJ since my Brooklyn relatives did not want me and we love spending time with Melissa and family (I've known her and her husband since high school and that's a long time!). We have convinced my family to endure us for the second days so we will spend some time in the holy land of Flatbush. Arthur has once again managed to organize things so he will not fly with us to NY or back home to California. Since he has to work on Thursday, he'll come on Friday morning and immediately afterwards he going to North Carolina for work.
I'm trying to keep on top of my schoolwork, especially since I still have assignments due and final projects as the semester winds down. It's a bit stressful.
Other than that, nothing too exciting to share at the moment. We don't have summer plans yet so you'll have to keep reading to find out what we're doing.
So to all our friends and family (and anyone else doing me the honor of reading my blog) wishing you a chag kasher ve'sameach! To those of you in Israel, I'm insanely jealous of you since you have only one seder and a 2 day chag as opposed to a 3 day chag. To those of you in galut, misery loves company.
And for all, check out this entertaining video: are you smarter than a 10 year old: Pesach edition.

Ahhh....Flatbush. I'd say I miss it, but I really don't--it's changed so much since the good ol' days. But Netanya's has the same pizza. Remember the old Romanian guy and his wife with the sheitel that was on sideways? Now their son is running the place. If you were coming back to Israel I'd make you bring me back a pie. Best pizza in the world.

Enjoy your Pesach. Having to endure two seders may just be worth not having to prepare at all for it!

Thanx Baila. And yes I certainly remember the Romanian guy and wife from Netanya Pizza (much better than J2). Enjoy your first Pesach as olim!

Oops. She spelled matzah wrong in Hebrew. She wrote a "het" in stead of "hey," shoulda been: מצה
Oh well.
