Well, this is it....
Blogging has been a great way to take breaks (read: procrastinate) from getting ready for Pesach.
I LOVE Pesach.
I HATE Pesach preparations!
I am not one of those crazy spring-cleaning types. I just clean for Pesach.
It always takes longer than I think.
I was much more organized this year.
I made lists.
I assigned tasks.
I enlisted outside help.
The kids cleaned our cars a week early.
They cleaned their rooms at the beginning of the week.
They were available and, most of the time, helpful.
So why is there still so much to be done at the last moment?
Mom in Israel wrote a great post about Pesach Crisis Cleaning.
If you are "one of us", read the comments too. You'll be glad you did.
In addition to all the practical advice, it is so nice to know that I am not the only one!
Chag Kasher V'Sameach!
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
