It's been nearly two weeks since I've signed into SuperRaizy. I suffer from an odd form of lifestyle ADD*** that's been getting worse as I get older and crankier. From time to time, I suddenly decide that I've had enough of a particular aspect of my life, and I just "check out" of that activity for a while. Over the past few years, I have spent days (sometimes weeks) ignoring my nails, the laundry, job-related paperwork, my mother, that weird smell that was emanating from the trash cans outside, my increasingly gray roots, utility bills, and my children, among other things. This time, my blog bit it.
While I was gone, Tesyaa nominated me for a "Heartfeld Blogger Award". That was very flattering, and I would like to offer a Heartfelt Apology to Tesyaa for not responding to her kind gesture sooner. I'm supposed to pass the award along to another blog that "makes me feel comfy or warm inside", and for me, that would be I'll Call Baila. Baila's life is so similar to mine (same age as me, 3 teenagers, a job working with developmentally disabled children, too much housework and not enough time) that reading her posts (especially the exasperated ones) feels like listening to a neighbor. Ok, so we live on different continents, (but she used to live in NY and I used to live in Israel) and she has a husband and a dog (but I used to have a husband and a dog). Doesn't matter. She's a chick after my own heart. So here you go Baila, here's your Heartfelt Blogger award. If I ever make it back to Israel, I'll be knocking on your door with a box of Dunkin Donuts and a big bottle of Diet Coke.
