My family is fun. We did family dinner for the first night of Rosh Hashanah and it was great sitting around chatting about this and that. My dad and his girlfriend get along great with my in-laws, and we all had a lot of fun. Read more

I woke up at 6:30 with a terrible backache. It seems that I’ve been sleeping like the dead the last few weeks, and I wake up stiff from not moving for hours on end. Plans for the day consist of lesson planning for October and Rosh Hashanah dinner number 1. Read more

I wish there was one in NYC. There’s a Rack, but the staff there if far less helpful than at the full priced store. I’m sure my MIL will be willing to go at some point after the High Holidays.

I’m going to either borrow my dad’s car or see if my MIL wants to go shopping in the next county up, there’s a Nordstrom there that I like. I sometimes wish I still had a car. Oh well.

I was on barenecessities.com and the little chat window popped up. I usually ignore it, but I need to know what size bra to wear. I measured myself and the woman calculated my size and gave suggestions about brands and such. I still prefer going to Nordstrom and getting fitted in person, but this works in a pinch.

I need to do laundry and grocery shopping today. I also just did an online bra fitting to fix the errors of the unhelpful ladies at Macy’s. Boobs are an expensive pain when they’re big. I’m a 32H right now. Ugh.

Our plans to go out today were rapidly accelerated by someone deciding to work on the roof door alarms at 8:20 this morning. Our apartment door is right at the bottom of the stairs to the room. After 10 minutes of alarm blaring, we went to the diner for breakfast. From there we went into town to Macys. Things were Read more

This is not okay, but I understand their reasons. I’m honestly not sure I’d watch it without them. I’m not that interested in baking.

I’m glad family is all close, because we won’t have to host until they can’t. First night is at my in-laws, second night is at my husband’s aunt and uncles. We do the same thing for Pesach.

I met my class of small people this week! They’re all adorable and it’s going to be a great year with them. I have one girl who is already telling me she loves me and running to me for hugs. I get smiles from all of them and snuggles from a few, even when they aren’t upset. We have an instructional coordinator from Read more

I’m looking forward to apples and honey in a few weeks. Honey on everything for a week. Challah with butter and honey is delicious. Read more

In our old apartment, if you closed the fridge too hard, the freezer would open. Just a tiny bit, enough that you wouldn’t notice unless you were looking for it. My food thawed twice in one month. I was so mad.

It’s beautiful here today and we have friends coming over to play board games this afternoon. We went to the grocery store to buy snacks and it was so nice walking home.

I’m aware of that. I was specifically talking about the rich people in my neighborhood shelling out 40k for kindergarten. They do it so their children can go to Ivy League colleges and continue the train of being rich.

Private school for non-religious reasons. I live in a neighborhood with good elementary schools. Why do people pay over 40k for private kindergarten? There are three schools in my community that charge that. Three. I don’t get it
