Fiddling Around

A few days ago, I was talking with a friend whose daughter is also in Fiddler on the Roof.  She mentioned something about attending rehearsals.

"You can do that?" I asked, surprised.

Then, I asked my daughter how she would feel about me coming to watch her rehearsal. 

She was totally fine with it.

So, tonight, I watched their rehearsal.  It was so much fun!  The play is going to be so great!! 

Rehearsals are grueling!  I got tired, just watching!!

They did not even rehearse the full show! 

I might go again, to see the stuff I missed.  We'll see.

Meanwhile, one of the girls in the show, who is in the same school & class as my daughter, has basically moved into our home.  She lives in the Gush and would get home really late after rehearsals.  So she is sleeping here pretty much until the show is over.  It's nice that I can open my home that way and the girls basically take care of themselves.

Today, when I finally got out of bed, I got busy!  I went on several errands with my friend, LF, who had a few hours free while her daughter was at a local birthday party.  My friend drove, and we accomplished a lot!  It was fun and productive!!

When I came home, I still felt energetic, so I fried up some sweet potato latkes for my kids.  My younger two did not really like them (apparently neither of them like sweet potatoes), but my eldest daughter loved them (and appreciated that I made them for her).

Overall, it was a good day!



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

With love and optimism,

My four daughters LOVE Fiddler on the Roof. Too bad Israel is so far away, we would love to come see it. I love how hospitable you are, even when you don't feel well.

It was so great to see you at rehearsal last night! It was wonderful watching you react to the different scenes -- you are so expressive. Sometimes when I've seen a scene a gazillion times I forget how moving or funny it is, so it's great to have new people come to watch and laugh or cry.

Bernie -- I wish my home was neater, so my kids would feel more comfortable bringing friends home...

Mindy -- It is a great show! I wish I could be even more hospitable. I love people, and I love guests.

Sarah -- thanks!! It was so much fun to discover I have so many talented friends!! I did not realize what a great voice you have!! I actually felt embarrassed that my eyes teared so readily. I find the play very moving; parts of it are so sad. It is so very Jewish -- happy and sad, funny and serious, spiritual and philosophical, religious and questioning, all at the same time.
