Last night, Saul would NOT go to sleep. He pestered Sara from 8 till 9pm, then got a little drowsy. He woke up at 2:30, dragged me in, and we stayed up trying to sleep till about 5:30, when I plopped him into Sara's bed, so I could sleep.

Happily, I can report he was up at 7:30 this morning, cheerful and ready to party.

So I made the cranberry relish last night, and we are headed to Mark and Julia's for thanksgiving at 4pm. Will also bring ice cream, and I think I may stop at Redbox, and pickup a movie.

Saul is in a great mood. Sara was doing some laundry in the garage, and she asked me if I wanted to take him around the block. he rode his bicycle the WHOLE WAY, by himself!

So, will go visit Tia, hopefully no slapsgiving, then back home and sleep. Tomorrow? Black Friday? not I.

I am thankful for my life, my family and my friends. I hope you all remember, it aint about the bird, it's about the love.

today was a big day. We all went to the Mikvah at the JCC, for the Bet Din to witness a Hatafat Dam Brit and Certificate of Conversion for Saul.

It's not a conversion, but it is a promise for the parents to raise him in a Jewish home. Then when he is 13, (at that oh, so rebellious age) he has to make the choice himself if he wants to be Jewish or not.

I think it is pretty cool. He gets to wait till he is older, and HE makes the decision, not us.

Anyhow, we went to the JCC, Saul and I went in the Mikvah, he was NOT happy about it, he said "Rabbi Josh is not swimming with us, and I do not have my floaties" But my folks and Sara were all there, and I got to be nekkid in the pool in front of a lot of people! woot! with Saul.

my overall impression? the water was cold.

Floaties, not Floaties

When we got home, I put mezuzas up at the house, and then? we went to dinner at Original Joes. With Jack! :)

on the way home, he said "I want to be in my bed, with my best blanket, and a bottle with milk in it"

which is exactly where he is now.

Halloween 2009

Here is the sum of my home decorations 3 glow-bracelets. 2 on the trailer, and one on the front porch

closeup of trailer.

Note - all 3 of these were swiped. and WHY do 35 yr old women think they can trick-or-treat? she wasn't even in a costume. Hey mom, get back in your unlicensed, unregistered mini-van, and drive the kids to the RICH people's neighborhood for candy.

Saul the policeman, Sara the prisioner
