Wednesday Night

9:00 p.m. i can't believe that it's already wednesday. i haven't blogged in two days. i've been taking it easy but today i got up at 7:00 a.m. and started my pesach cleaning at 8:00 a.m. i ran downstairs and put in a super load of laundry. it was pretty warm outside so i hung it on the outside lines. i then threw in another gigantic load and hung that one up, too.

i then got down to serious business. i washed the kitchen windows and the curtains, too. i then washed the outside porch windows. i do these once a year. it is so clean that you forget there are windows. of course, right after i finished the windows we had an insect infestation smearing up the shine.

i was on a roll and took out my trustee steam machine and started cleaning the pantry/pesach kitchen. i did the ceramics and counters and then i tackled the oven and stove. the oven racks are soaking in some oven cleaner and boiling water. zvi came home with the neighbor's tool kit and unscrewed the dining room chairs for me. i do this once a year. i remove the seats and wash out all the crumbs. are we having fun yet?

i was in such a cleaning blitz, that i actually sprayed oven cleaner onto the racks while zvi was still standing in the kitchen. he and the neighbor were coughing from the oven cleaner. i must be mad. i called it quits about half an hour ago. my hands and back are aching. i think 12 1/2 hours of cleaning is enough. i forgot to mention that i washed the kitchen and dining room floors twice today.

zvi just ordered a pizza because there isn't any food in the house. i ate a huge amount of walnuts today, a banana, an orange, a grapefruit, a giant green apple, some dates and some left over spicy thai chicken wings and some fried noodles. i shared the left over turkey with the hounds. i can't remember exactly what time i ate, or i should say, ravaged, the leftovers.

i hope to make it to yoga tomorrow. i will then buy the dairy and veggies for pesach. i got a load of free apples, pears and avocados today so we only need veggies.

i spent a lot of time in town yesterday searching for a holiday outfit for sahar. i bought a few things for him but i goofed up on the sizes so they need to be returned. i don't know if i'll make it to the store tomorrow. i still have a lot to finish. i scrubbed the small hall bathroom already so i still need to do the large bathroom and my bedroom.

i walked a half an hour to yoga yesterday and then walked another half an hour to town to get to the unemployment office. i sold my chometz at the rabbinut and then went to every baby store in town. i didn't get home until 3:00 p.m. and i was fit for nothing. i think i made up for it today.


  1. i thunk you are just a teensy bit mad!
    i guess when you slip into Pesach you feel you went from Slavery to Freedom.
