You may be saying to yourself, “Hey! Tonight’s the first night of Hanukkah. What’s that hanukkiyah doing with all those flames?” Very perceptive of you. You caught me. Those are not only last year’s candles, those’re last year’s latkes. And they’ll have to do for the moment.
This is the 4th consecutive week at work that I’ve had to do the jobs of two people. It would take six double shifts to get fully caught up the way I’d like to be. Unfortunately, that’s about all I can say about that, except for the fact that I’m getting tired. And crisp around the edges.
I’m especially bummed out about not having the energy to do all the things I’d like to do before & after work. Things like having dinner with Andy and exercising and blogging with proper posts and preparing for the holidays and unpacking my suitcases from Thanksgiving and cleaning the bathroom. Okay, you caught me again. I’ll rephrase: I wish I had the energy to do things like having dinner with Andy, blogging properly and preparing for the holidays.
No matter what the rest of the week holds, Saturday afternoon is reserved for making lots of latkes. Insha’Allah. Or is that Insha’Adonai? God willing, that yummy fried goodness topped with applesauce & sour cream is coming my way. I can hold out until then.
