Well, two huge meals certainly haven't cleansed out my digestive system. I'm kinda writhing in matzoh ball hell. I make a nice light matzoh ball, but I also make a lot of them. They're delicious, you tend to eat more than you should, and wow, you can regret it.

The Seder last night was lovely. Everything was cooked on time, we did a nice service with only a couple of hysterical moments per child, and everything was delicious. In fact, it was so good, we never even bothered with dessert because we were all stuffed. At one point, the Girl called a time out so she could 'recline' on the sofa because she could no longer stand.

There is something about working so hard and hating every moment of the whole getting ready for Pesach that, when it culminates in a nice Seder and a great meal, makes it all worthwhile. I'm proud of the Boy for being such an excellent helper. He peeled more carrots than I ever though he'd have patience for, he helped make both the chicken soup and the gefilte fish, and he even helped herb the turkey, something I don't recommend for the faint of heart. The Girl, she wasn't helpful. She came home from school on Wed., went up to her room, and promptly fell asleep. When she woke up, everything was pretty much done.

Today when I awakened I was so tired I could barely move. I had a meeting at the Boy's school at 8:45 but changed it to 1:00 because there was just no way I could even think about staying awake and alert. In fact, at 1:00 I was still out of it. I don't have the stamina for this type of intensive preparation anymore. I wish I did, but I don't.

Saturday afternoon we'll hopefully have a visit from our friend who has been in such turmoil. We've spoken to our friend on the phone several times, and hopefully we'll be able to get together on Saturday for a nice visit. I think we're all looking forward to it.

Have you been reading the various "Lost Blogs" posts? I've been reading them all week, and I've guessed more than a few, but some have me so stumped I just have no idea. One guy unfortunately spent a whole night googling for answers and posted them on his blog, but I feel strongly that this is cheating, and didn't read his blog. I have absolutely NO clue who Dave of Blogography and Belinda of Ninja Poodles are writing about. None. Completely confuzzled. I can't wait till the answers are posted tomorrow. It's like a Trading Spaces reveal. I'm so excited.

I haven't seen the Lost Blog posts. SOunds intriguing. Enjoy your holiday. Isn't it a great feeling when you produce a meal like that and it's well enjoyed? Great, but exhausting.
