Perspective

Frustration is an emotion that make you want to alternately scream and pull your hair or bubbles annoyingly inside much like bad heartburn.

Things that bring about minor yet still bothersome frustration: pancakes disintegrating in the pan, the dish and laundry conundrum (they're just never done), sales on clothes in a country half a world away with no way to get them.

AngloinIsraelProblems - good quality, adorable, fleece sleepers* for next year on sale online for $7.99, won't buy them because too complicated to get them brought over. Next winter arrives, shop in Israel, shell out approximately $11 for sleeper whose snaps pop off and seams literally unravel. (Assuming you can find fleece sleepers in the right size for your kid because while tipat chalav yells at you for having an underweight child the clothing industry is convinced that all children are all in the 15% percentiles...)

(* Can substitute 'fleece sleepers' for any item of clothing.)

We're off to the simchat bat soon. A bit of cooking remains to be finished. Z finally put the baby gate up in the hall with the extension pieces so we can close the bedroom door and keep the kid out all at the same time. I have enough eggnog left for one more recipe of something but I need to figure out what. Shabbos is booked up for the next two weeks too but I'm trying not to think about that yet. The weather is supposed to be nice this weekend, I hope it really is since we'll be walking across town tomorrow morning.

Have a great weekend.
