Wow! Well, Shavout is over now (for Mommy n' Me at least.) The Holiday went quite smoothly if I do say so myself. Went to shul Sunday night. Went to shul Monday morning (on time!) and spent all afternoon sleeping. Of course thanks to my 6 hour long nap in the afternoon I wasn't the least bit sleepy at 11:00 when we finished dinner. So, I dragged Mommy upstairs and we watched 'Gladiator.' It was good - excepting for the fact that (as in most movies now-a-days) all the battle scenes are over-dramatized. I know that the viewers enjoy the blood, guts and gore spattering the screen however I find it distasteful especially because unlike in Shakespearean times - movies are a 'fourth person' experience and the actors cannot even hear the shouts and advice of the audience. When the movie ended (at 2:30) sleep still eluded me - so I read/finished my book. (The Forest House - by:Marion Zimmer Bradley. Not as good as the others - Mist of Avalon is still my favorite. But moving in it's own way.) At 6:00 a.m. I drifted off and woke up at 9:00 a.m.
It's second day Chag for Saba and Savta and I am under house arrest owing to the fact that I can't do any M'lacha in public. So I intend to spend a lot of time in front of the computer, a little time packing up my stuff, some time packing up Saba and Savta's stuff and all around lazing about.
Later I'll go say 'good-bye' to the Chazanows.
I just have to make it through today and I can go HOME!!! I'm SOOOOOO EXCITED!!
