Keter Plastic & Vegetable Soup...

Wow! It's been about a month since I last posted. The chagim are now over, school is starting and I've been on vacation for almost 2 months. I also got 3 new pairs of glasses (because there was a buy 1 get 2 free sale going on. Yes, I'm serious.) I also managed to organize all of my arts-n-crafts supplies, back-up all of my photos to CD and I even printed out neat little labels for each one so I know what's on every one with a quick glance, I got all the g'mach stuff out of the closet in the guest room, Zalman successfully 'installed' weather stripping on the windows in the apartment (so that this winter the elements will stay on their side of the walls - which is the OUTside) and I even learned how to make these AWESOME soft-pretzels (which tasted best when stuffed with ooey-gooey cheese.)

Most recently we spent the week of Sukkot in Bet Shemesh. There was the day we painted, the day we did nothing, the other day we did nothing, the day we went to the beach, 2 concerts, 1 sukkah open-house, 1/3rd of a Lord of the Rings marathon, we watched season 2 of 'How I Met Your Mother', we saw Aunt Foofoo (who reminded me that before I got married that I used to blog a lot more - and made me really want to commit to some sort of more frequent schedule than 'random posts'), we bothered Mommy, attempted to evade Oscar (the Dog), saw lots and lots of friends, learned about a conspiracy theory involving black & white clothes and Jewish women, spent simchat torah night in a Beis Midrash full of shvitzy guys and a whole lot of other stuff...

Today was our first day back in the city and we started it off bright and early. We ran a gazillion errands all over the place and accomplished a lot. The only thing I haven't managed to do yet is to pick up some new school supplies. Zalman is poo-pooing the idea. He insists that we have a few notebooks and some pens around the house and that those are 'just fine' for taking notes. But, I just can't help it. School just isn't as fun unless you have brand new, 'special for school' school supplies. I really want some new folders and maybe a new pen or two and possibly even hi-lighters. The only thing I definitely don't need might be crayons... :)
