Last Round of Yontif
Sunday, September 22, 2013
I am recuperating today after three nights in a row of the "Yontif marathon" we've been on, staying up til 1 a.m. three nights in a row. That may be standard procedure for some, but I'm an early to bed kind of girl, so today I was exhausted.
Nothing like a restful day at home on the couch reading a book to recover from what I refer to as a case of Tthe Berenstein Bears And Too Much Holiday" (anybody remember those books? a fave of mine as a kid).
Tomorrow, it's back to work for three days, then the final round of Yontif. I'm always a bit relieved when Mar Cheshvan rolls around. It may mean "bitter," but the return to routine and normalcy feels a little sweet to me.
The good news is that the holiday has been spectacular: good memories, good food, and I think I managed to maintain my pre-holiday weight!
