Now I just have to figure out packaging. I would love to be all creative and stuff, but I think I'm just going to get gift bags or wine bags or something. And some of that krinkly papery stuff that's like the plastic grass people use in Easter baskets, except it's made of paper not plastic and comes in lots of colors, but I can't remember what it's called and I have no earthly idea where to find it. Anybody know what I'm talking about?
Next year I'm going to start this earlier. Actually, I probably would have started this earlier if it weren't for all the banquet/journal work I was doing for the shul. I can't wait until the banquet is over. Of course, then Passover preparations begin. But somehow, I feel like I can face that a little easier, which doesn't make any sense at all. I think it's because if I'm not ready in time for Passover, it affects me (and Seth). But if I'm not ready for the banquet, it affects a couple hundred people and the shul's financial stability. That's a lotta weight and I think it's really been getting to me.
Anyway, cheating a little on Shabbos dinner this week and on the shaloch manos makes me feel a little better in terms of the stress. So I'm sure I'll be okay. I am feeling unworthy of my "Domestic Goddess" icon. I can't wait until I feel like I can use it without guilt again.
