ROSH HOSHANA MAMA DRAMA!

HELP!† Iím just getting adjusted to LA time, again after spending time in New York and suddenly it hits me:† ITíS ROSH HOSHANA!† Iím talking like…NOW!

Oh yeah, over the summer thatís all the moms talked about is how itís so early and how thatís a good thing, etc. etc.† Well that was a dream because the nightmare is coming quicker than Hurricane Earl!† I have a day trip to Disneyland tomorrow and all Iím thinking is HOW AM I GOING TO PULL THIS OFF?!!!† I have no time for Minnie and Mickey and if Minnie is Jewish, sheís stressing out as much as the rest of us!

Obviously my upstairs insomniac neighbor is prepared, sheís been dragging furniture all through the night and day so perhaps I should hire HER to get my house in order!

Women have such responsibilities that sometimes go unappreciated.† It really isnít that easy to get ready for such a big holiday right after summer vacation.† I still have sand in my shoes from Jersey and havenít unpacked and the anxiety has reached a whole new level:† IíM DREAMING of Rosh Hashanah mishaps!† Women reading this will know what Iím talking about…you put up the chicken and when you go to check on it, the oven isnít on.† You burn the brisket because you had the wrong range on high.† You forget to MAKE the matzo balls because you were concentrating so hard on getting the fat out of the chicken soup.† For Jewish women these dreams cause real anxiety!

Well, Iím done.† Iíll get through these next few days somehow, some way if someone letís me borrow their ďhoovesĒ because trust me, after walking through Disneyland, Iím going to need them to prepare for Yuntif!

My biggest challenge is that this year I got the ďgood newsĒ from my Temple that they are changing the High Holy Day Prayer books.† I just bought new ones LAST year! Iím hoping that the only change is in the font! Every year Iím convinced Iím going blind, as the print seems smaller and me being a three time Hebrew class dropout…Iím always behind everyone when we pray and of course, everybody always asks ME in the loudest whisper ďWHAT PAGE ARE WE ON?Ē

As much as I kvetch I look forward to spending time with my family and friends and of course can always count on those extra pounds, which I convince myself will ďevaporateĒ after Yom Kippur but there I go, dreaming again!

LíShana Tovah to all my fans and readers. † A healthy and sweet New Year to each and every one of you!† That reminds me…. I forgot to put honey on my grocery list!
