Family May 2012


I owe a huge update. Needless to say, it's not going to happen now. I can't even muster the energy to write any quickies. I've started about 7 journal entries in the last week and never managed to finish them. Sigh.

But quickly...this weekend was the beginning of Succos. Yes, for you non-Jews out there, I'll explain what it is later...but for now, refer to earlier comment about no energy. Suffice it to say, it's a fun holiday and I love it.

Anyway, we were supposed to stay with Ellen and we had a funfilled weekend planned. But Friday I was so miserably sick (flu? cold? who knows...I was sniffly and throwing up, so maybe both?) that I stayed home. Blah. Seth went. He had a good time. I spent two days alone with the cats and my new wood floors.

Seth came home later than expected because he'd had a little too much to drink throughout the day and didn't feel comfortable driving home. I threw a hissy fit because I had been cooped up with no one to talk to for two days. We made up. I'm a bad, sucky wife sometimes. But, like I said, we made up.

As you may have surmised, our wood floors have finally been installed. It took the *&(#$^&-ers FOUR FREAKING DAYS. FOUR. For 300 square feet. FOUR. WHOLE. AGONIZING. DAYS. But they're done. And there's a huge gash in the kitchen where they moved the refrigerator back into place. And that irritates me. But not so much that I don't still enjoy my beautiful new floors. And they smell so nice. They're maple and they are leaving a wonderful aroma in our downstairs. Yay for floors.

Anyway, that's all I've got energy for today. Maybe more later. Maybe later I'll explain Succos for my non-Jewish readers. Or maybe one of my Jewish readers wants to take pity on me and post an explanation in the comments. Or maybe not.

Anyway, I hope you're all just peachy.
