Girl's Night Out

Two weeks ago, when my girlfriend, RD, asked what would be a good night to get together, I told her Thursday, November 5th (tonight).

It did not occur to me for a second that I might still be so tired.

But all I had to do was get in RD's car, and she would drive. So I did.

We gathered at the home of another girlfriend, LM, and were joined by another four women.

LM is a serious baker, so she had some delicious treats. I was so glad that, earlier this evening, I did not have enough room in my tummy to eat the meat lasagna that our good friend, MH, brought us for dinner!! (I did have a nice bowl of her hearty, parve, tomato soup!)

LM had also made hot apple cider!! There is nothing better than curling up on the couch, under a blanket, with freshly baked cake and hot apple cider, and watching a light, fluffy "chick-flick" that makes us laugh!!

Just what the doctor ordered!!!



Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.

With love and optimism,
RivkA

I'm so glad you had fun and so glad you're eating!

Amazing how easy it is to take that for granted. I think of you whenever I want to yell at myself for eating another doughnut. (But then again, I'm great at rationalizing).

I still want to meet you in person!
Bli Neder the next time I need to come to Ylem, I would love the opportunity to finally meet you!

Sounds great! Just the way to make happy thoughts and good vibes.

With my father living with us, I'm now restricted for different reasons.

Feel better Moshe! I once heard that evey couple has the person who needs "pinuk" when they are sick and the person who needs to left alone. We definitely have that (I am the pinuki if you didnt guesse).

Staying Afloat -- Who can resist pumpin pie??? My friend is a phenomenal baker!

Truth is, I could only eat a very small piece. I wanted more, but knew I would regret it (not emotionally, but physically. The threat of nausea is an effective deterrent).

I miss American donuts!! What I wouldn't give for a Dunkin Donuts' Boston Cream donut! I would even settle for Enenmann's chocolate covered donuts. The donuts here just do not compare.

Avoid temptation -- make Aliyah!


Mikimi -- I would love to meet you! Let me know the next time you are in town!

Batya -- Make sure you also set aside time for yourself!

Ricki's mom -- it was!

Cheryl -- I did!!

Ariela -- cute!
