Do I really complain too much?

That seems to be the consensus amongst my readers...

Oh well.

I realized today that I have become much more serious in my old age.

And I realized today that there is not much I don't know how to do (haven't tried handgliding yet!)

And I have this crazy ideal that there is no excuse for imperfection - in anyone.

yeah, THAT's not fair!

Oh well.

Just sharing.

Shabbat Shalom

My love - hate relationship with Purim

As much as I love the holiday of Purim. I really hate it! (Sorry Mom, no other word to use!)

In short:

- the weather
- the fun and excitement in the air
- the celebrations
- the costumes (there are some very creative people out there!)
- baking hamantashen – only poppy seed this year
- making M’shaloach Manot
- making my own seudah (missed that this year!)
- the singing and words of Torah at the seudah
- rereading the story of Esther and marveling at what the Jewish people have been through. And how strong we continue to be.
- vacation time

- the money spent on M’shaloach Manot
- the stress to get the costumes together for my kids
- the stress to make it to megillah reading on time and hear every word
- the alcohol and the drinking
- worrying about my teenagers and their friends drinking
- not having a completely “Torahdik” seudah
- expectations for behavior
- feeling out of control
- my husband passing out at the end of the night

Someday life will either be exactly the way I want it, or I will be mature enough to accept it just the way it is…

P.S. I apologize for all the Hebrew terminology. Send me an email or comment if you want something clarified.

I’ve been reluctant

and resistant.

DB says he gets bored at home. Therefore he has to go to his friend’s house. He tells me not to take it personally. Not sure how else to take it.

MB and NED think that because we don’t like the way their friends dress, that we don’t like their friends’ characters.

Ely thinks we are going to America for Pesach and not coming back. Therefore she doesn’t want to leave her friends here.

I am officially on overload with my clients.

I think I want to go back to suggesting people get therapy, instead of being the one who actually does the therapy.

Don’t take me seriously people, I’m just venting. I love my work and enjoy the knowledge that I might be able to help someone work through their personal difficulties.

It’s just a heavy load to burden every week.

I found an art therapist to work with. I’m struggling with my need to be perfect, and to accept nothing less from myself.

I think I finally found a floor tile I like. THAT”S exciting! And our roof is on. Now for all the inside decisions.

I worry about my friends whose marriages are weakening. It’s such an easy thing to have happen in our busy lives. A good marriage is so hard to keep up.

The stress in my neck is creeping towards my head. I’m going to sleep.

Good night!
