I just made some rice crispies treats...and I'm about to start making greek pasta salad for tomorrow (it needs to live overnight in the fridge). Also, I did not bless the sun. Apparently that's some kind of big deal and only happens once every 27 years.
Pesach was always my least favorite holiday. I got invited to a 'feminist reconstructionist seder' on Friday night (apparently there is a newish trend among the non-orthodox of having the seder on the weekend so that far-away family members can attend). I briefly considered going because it is being hosted by a professor that I love/has really good connections...but then remembered that I don't have to participate in religious affairs if I don't want to. Also I have a party that night I'd rather go to.
As some of you will be saying tonight- "We were slaves but now we are free."
Otherwise, not a lot to write about, as things haven't been very dramatic lately. It's weird...last year after getting engaged and as my family drama unfolded, this stuff was preoccupying me all the time. I was upset about my parents nearly every day and it seemed like I was talking about it all the time, and sometimes probably inappropriately (this stuff is just TMI for casual acquaintances, no?).
But time heals all wounds...and after a few months of family members trying to convince me not to get married earlier this year, things seem to have quieted down on their end as well. The calm before the storm? Or maybe now that the invitations have gone out (including one to my parents, who didn't bother to RSVP no), they realize that it's too late? I hope it's the latter
Only a little over 5 weeks until the wedding! I'm pretty much done with planning things, except for a few odds and ends. Other then that, life is pretty awesome. B is great, Barkley is great, the kitties are great, life in general is great. My new netbook is also great, and I've transferred over all my stuff- I need to rebuild my wedding music playlist from scratch, but that's not too bad. Now all I need to do is stop procrastinating and write this book review that I need to give to the journal's editors on Monday. At least I can work from home again, now that my laptop doesn't randomly turn off every 2 minutes! :)
