2 random notes
My car is like a horse... it knows the route it's supposed to take. Today I was taking Julian to school. This is a very rare occurrence as I usually leave the house before he's ready to go. But today he was not only ready, he specifically begged me to take him. Okay. Except that my car doesn't seem to know the route to his school. For the second time in a row, on a morning that I've been taking him to school, my car got onto the Beltway. This is the route to WORK. It is NOT the route to SCHOOL, nor is there a convenient way to fix the error. Bah.

And, um, I can't remember what the second random note was going to be, so I'll take this opportunity to point out that DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME IS EVIL.

Oh, I remember now. My NONJEWISH cleaning lady just called me to see if I needed to schedule time for her to help with Pesach cleaning. AAAAIIIIGGGGHHH!!! I've been living in denial about Pesach Cleaning and I would LIKE TO STAY THAT WAY! Ack!

I call that "autopilot", where I let my subconscious handle the navigating (and it doesn't always properly confer with my conscious mind over what the actual destination is).

yup, that's pretty much what happens every time I have to go to the school in the morning.

Of course, in the evening... if I'm not picking Julian up (which I usually do), I almost always accidentally take the route that takes me past his school.

Help a girl out, what is pesach cleaning? And why was Julian so excited to go school today?

Ah. sorry. Pesach = Passover. I keep kosher year-round, but during Passover, the restrictions are even greater. I have to remove all traces of leavened food (chometz) from my house, so it has to be cleaned fairly thoroughly. More importantly, however, the kitchen has to be fully turned over... we use an entirely different set of cookware, utensils, dishes, etc. during Passover. The kitchen gets the most thorough cleaning of all and the counters get covered, the shelves get lined, cabinets that I don't clean out get blocked off entirely. It's quite an ordeal and I'm trying to pretend like it isn't just over a month away.

Julian actually wasn't terribly excited to go to school this morning. He was being incredibly emotionally labile, which led him to be Sir Cransalot. He started to cry when I told him I was leaving for work. Since he'd already eaten breakfast and he was fully dressed, when he asked me to take him, I couldn't resist. Poor little guy. Turns out he's had quite a rough day at school, so he might be getting sick, which explains why he was extra-clingy to me this morning.
