I haven't posted anything original in a while, but it's not because I don't love you anymore. I've just been "very busy" (the classic blogger's excuse).
Well... actually... kinda busy and a little lazy. I've been reading some fantastic posts on other blogs, though (ProfK's latest blew me away) and I've been spending way too much time on the phone blabbing with my friends.
What else? Let's see.
Opening the mail was fun today. I got the tuition bill for next year for Flash's yeshivah: $21,125 (but it's OK, that includes transportation, so no worries.) After I finished laughing, I opened a letter from his summer baseball league: their price has shot up from $125 to $240. I stared longingly at the bill for Balance Due from my daughters' day camp. I'd like to pay it, but not yet, not until I catch up on this year's tuition. And then came the piece de resistance- a letter from some Rabbi asking for tzedakah for a "young Torah couple" who would like to get married and start a family but can't afford to. (Hey, Torah couple, I got news for you: I can't afford children either. But I'm not poking my way into your mailbox to schnor for money.) Why don't you both get a job and wait until you can afford it.
On the bright side, we had a nice Mother's Day lunch yesterday with the extended family, I bought a new shirt, and Wonderwoman learned how to ride a bicycle. So truthfully, I can't complain.
Anyway, that's wassup with me. Wassup with you?
