New Week

it's 9:00 p.m. on sunday night in the holy city of zefat. i didn't fall asleep until around 5:00 a.m. i got up and went to yoga. gal took sahar to her mother so i was free all day. my back was killing me but i dragged myself up the street for exercize.

i got home about 10:30 a.m. and hit the sofa for the rest of the day. i stayed in bed and only got out to find things to eat. i had some cheese, tahina, salad, nuts, veggies, eggs and a bit of peanut butter. i watched a bunch of third rate t.v. until sahar came home.

i watched him for about an hour while his mom took a walk. he just started crawling on all fours and is not happy sitting on my lap at this point. he wants action. when he stands up holding onto bookcases and chairs, i see how difficult it will be to baby proof the house. i crawled after him for a while and he loved when i screamed out that i'd get him. mendush also loves this.

the kids want to go out soon so i'll go upstairs to babysit. i'll have him with me for the entire day tomorrow. i hope my back feels better so i can take him out for a walk. it would be nice to visit my sister while mendush is over. the two little boys could crawl around together. we shall see.

i am trying to knock off the 8 pounds that i put on and it's not easy. i crave sweets and fruits which aren't permitted on the south beach stage 1 diet. i could just kick myself for gaining all this weight. i don't know why i gave myself permission to go wild and eat up so many containers of ice cream. i was finally getting back into my clothes and now it's puffed out stomach again.

i have a bar mitzvah in zefat next week and a wedding in bnai brak that i feel obligated to attend. i don't like going out at night. my friends want to get together on thursday night for a joint birthday party at the pizza shop. i want to honor their birthdays, but i don't eat pizza and hate to go to town at night. i also had enough of my birthday celebration this year. i ate, way too much, cake and ice cream and i got way. too many knick knacks. i would prefer if the ladies came up here for a barbecue in the garden. i guess they don't want to leave town to come up to the burbs even though it's only a 10 minute cab ride.


  1. i night be inclined to join in for a bbq although i am off 2 netanya Tuesday morning for 2 days.
    weight is a daily struggle for so many of us.

  2. Is it true that you can't tell a difference between your own children and your grandchildren? I miss my daughters as little girls. Every time I start whining about it, they tell me not to worry--that someday I will have grandchildren! That seems to be the cure for missing the childhood days of your own children. True or no?
