Finding myself in the Middle East

and an Ima hiding in the pear tree

On the 8 days of Chanuka, my true Lord gave to me;

4 girls sleeping over,

1 baby with mono

1 baby with strep (same baby! poor baby!)

1 broken dryer

2 girls home from school

14 guests at my Chanuka party

nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah.

Yeah, songwriting. I'll leave that to Chanale and just stick to my dayjob.

Things I didn't know that I could do before these past two weeks:

Hold my thirty-pound Turtle in one arm all day long.

Hold my thirty-pound Turtle in two arms all night long.

Type two stories with one finger.

Update blog with one finger.

Make dinner and chanuka party with one finger.

Entertain guests with a screaming baby on my shoulder.

Fit four girls into the baby's closet room.

Not sleep for a week and a half straight. (See: Baby, strep and mono of)

Not take a hot shower. (See: 4 guests)

Dry things on the porch. In the rain. (See: broken dryer)

...and still have a beautiful Chanuka.

Mystery: He's getting better, thank you. It was pretty bad for a while, poor baby.

Princess: I put that song in my OWN head, now, and I'm humming it all day!

Chanale: :) Thank you and pleasure!
