    Being as it is the week before Passover, I barely have time to get the house ready, let alone write a lot of posts on this blog. So in the spirit of that, today’s post will be a short homage to the newbees. Those who will be hosting seder at their home for the first time.

    There is a great truth about yours truly: I don’t get sick often, but when I do—watch out! My husband and I have been together for two and a half year and he had yet to see me ever become really ill. He got his chance last Sunday.

    I woke up at 2 a.m. with an awful stomach ache,... read on

    This will be a short post today — I’m in the middle of taxes.

    I can’t stand tax time!

    This is the first year my husband and I are filing jointly. It will also be the first time he will be... read on

    I’m not a runner, but I did experience a sense of euphoria as I crossed a finish line this weekend: I finally put away all of our wedding gifts. I morphed from a newlywed into Shoshana: Queen of the Household.

    Yes, it took more than five months, but, at last, the behemoth that... read on

    As I peruse magazines and online articles (type in “wedding trends” on Google and you will find nearly 95,000 entries) on the... read on

  • Linens and things II: A bright idea

    Our front light burned out … again.

    Of course, replacing it isn’t as simple as screwing in a new lightbulb. There is a process:

    1) Open garage door – carefully avoiding crickets, spiders and other creepy crawies – to obtain step ladder
    2) Get a screwdriver to... read on
