Anticipating...

Do you know today is Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year? If your children were off school for the next two days, you would be VERY aware. Trust me.


Last year I wrote this post about the holiday and today I am celebrating once again.


Let's face it, I need all the New Years I can get. Time once again to re-evaluate, see how my life is going and what I need to work on. Here are a few things I am looking forward to in the coming new year:


  • Bookclub this week. We're meeting at my house and I will be baking something delicious.
  • Haircut and color next week. My hair has not looked this hideous since eighth grade. Really...I could just wear this hair with my morning face and I would win all Halloween contests this year.
  • My upcoming "Gabtalk" interview post. The election edition. I say this every time...but I think this is one of the best inverviews ever.
  • General Conference. After a week of depressing news, I cannot wait to see something uplifting on my TV for a change. Plus, Brad will make trail mix. I plan on being stuffed, physically and spiritually.
  • Thursday. When school will start and my life will return to "normal."

Happy New Year!

Oh, I can not wait until the election edition of Gabtalk! Please tell me you don't make Sarah Palin sound smart. She has been such a disappointment. But then again, I'm voting Obama so what do I care.

I pray all who are able will vote, and look deep into their heart and conscience when making the decision, considering truths and values! Trail Mix sounds good for conference, we usually have popcorn!

I, too, love that master trail mix while sitting around watching/napping to conference. Best weekend ever. We should have it once a quarter instead of twice a year.

I need to start celebrating this holiday. NEED to.

I doubt your hair looks as bad as you say.

Can't wait for the nre interview!

I'm totally making that trail mix. My kids will love it.

Please help me understand why it's called Rosh Hashana holiday and not Autumn Celebration holiday. I've been curious why the christian holidays are renamed to remove any reference to Christ and the Jewish holidays keep their orginal name. Genuinely curious, that's all.

Yum! You are making me hungry :) I am excited to hear conference too!

I think I could beat you for bad hair days...I can't wait for COnference...I need some serious spiritual upliftment! I don't think there are any Jews in NH. I'm surprised we don't get days off for hunting season.

2.5 years ago we moved to sunny SoCal where we don't celebrate religious holidays. There is however, a bill on Arnold's desk to designate a Harvey Milk day. Harvey worked for gay rights. I want a day for those of us who worship God--oh wait that is Christmas.

You always have fun stuff on your blog! I look forward to your election edition. You saw the SNL spoof on Sarah Palin, right?

This is the one of Tina Fey playing Sarah Palin which is hilarious!

Here is the SNL John McCain skit about the radio ads

I thought they were hilarious!

I love Jewish holidays. You are cordially invited to Hanukkah with our family, Celia'a and Good Time Charlies families. I hope Paige invites herself too....
Come to Brentwood and see for yourself how much fun we all are!!!!

Hollyween said...

You've inspired me to totally make a great snack this weekend. I'm thinking caramel corn will hit the spot!

I can't wait for the next installment of gabtalk. You're such a great writer. You should seriously write a book.

I am really, really happy that it is conference weekend, too. I need to see something uplifting!

I loved this post. A couple of years ago my Aunt, who is Jewish, called and was dismayed that my kids don't get off of school for Rosh Hashanah. She isn't even particularly religious...but, I guess she felt that tradition is important. She has always been perplexed by the fact that my Dad joined the church.

I'm excited for Gabtalk!!

Can't wait for conference! It is nice to hear uplifting words when all the other news sounds so dismal!

I just copied down the recipe for Conf. Trail Mix! I'll let you know how the kids like it. Great idea.
