It’s time to give thanks…or something like that

October 28, 2009

Before Thanksgiving my company will do what lots of other companies across America have been doing, and layoff some of their valuable (or not so valuable in some cases) employees. Right now in large offices, head honchos are sitting around and sizing up their employees to decide which ones are the most expendable. Employees across America are calling their coworkers […]

Our house is a very, very fine house…

October 21, 2009

As we were fixing up things around the house, I realized that I have been blind-sided with my eagerness to move onward and upward to a larger house. It’s not just the walls, the upgrades, the age of this house that makes this a great place to live. Rather, it’s the home it has become for us. Reminiscing of the […]

Recently I have had the opportunity to hang out with a few different mothers. First, I went to a baby shower with a few first-time mothers. Then, I went to a playgroup with some of Drew’s classmates. In both situations I felt like I was playing a mom with a bunch of real moms. One would think after 16 months […]

Marathon Time!

October 13, 2009

Sunday we went to watch my friend, Rachel Gerber, run the marathon. It was such an incredible experience to watch Rachel who has worked so hard to get to this point, run by with confidence and energy. As the different participants passed us, it was hard not to feel inspired by the hard work that went into such a lofty […]

You can’t always get what you want…

October 7, 2009

Adam and I have lived in our town house for almost five years which is two years more than we ever intended. I never would have guessed that real estate would become a bad investment. So as our family has grown, dog and baby, we are starting to outgrow our house. We met with a realtor whose outlook of the […]

Wedded Bliss

September 28, 2009

This past weekend we went to our friends’ wedding.  I couldn’t help reminiscing about the days, not so long ago, of Adam and my nuptials.  That day was such a wonderful day!  For the first couple of years our house was shrine to the fact we got married; pictures everywhere, pretty gifts decorated our home, etc.  In recent years something changed.  […]

Let’s ring in the New Year!

September 23, 2009

This past weekend I celebrated the Jewish New Year. The Jewish New Year is very similar to the secular New Year; it gives everyone an opportunity to start his or her year over. I’m not an extremely religious person but as I understand it G-d opens the “Book of Life” after the New Year and evaluates who will be written […]

Heli beats the clock!

September 16, 2009

I recently ran a 5k.  My goal had been to run it in under 30 minutes.  I practiced by working to pace myself at higher speeds to cut down my time.  I ran to beat the clock.  As the run was happening, I felt like the time was crawling.  I kept telling myself that 30 minutes in the scheme of […]

Seeking an Insurance Policy

September 9, 2009

This past weekend we celebrated my grandparents’ 61st wedding anniversary. 61 years of sharing a bedroom/home/life together, 61 years of building a family together, 61 years of looking at each other, 61 years of listening to each other (or at least pretending to), 61 years of holy matrimony. Having a marriage that lasts the test of time is extremely rare, […]

We’re in the cool club!

September 3, 2009

I’m learning that you never really get over those feelings of wanting to be included by the cool crowd. It starts when you are young (at least it did for me), follows you through the traumatic years of junior high, travels to tumultuous high school and meets you in chaotic college. However as a grown up with a child, you […]
