So the goal of posting something here everyday is obviously not working out. But I’m okay with that. The way I see it, if I am not getting the chance to shower everyday, I probably should not be blogging everyday. So here’s the new rule: posting = showering. However, showering does not = posting. Just so we’re clear on that, because I wouldn’t want anyone (read: my mom) to think that I am only getting the chance to jump in the shower once a week if I only post once a week cause that would be gross. Got it? Good.
So without making you read through the details of the three day chag that just finished, here are some pictures of our Sukkah
Oh, and in case you’re wondering why there is a water heater box in the middle of the sukkah, you got it – our water heater blew 20 hours before Sukkot started. We, thank G-d, avoided a major flood in the basement because Josh was kind enough to take all the food that I had cooked on Tuesday night down to the fridge in the basement. He went down there carrying a ton of food and was back up the stairs two seconds later, announcing the need to shut the water to the whole house. I guess you can say that I owe a debt of gratitude to a three day yomtov because otherwise I would not have cooked so much and we wouldnt have gone down to the basement fridge so late at night and well, by morning, the small leak would have been a major flood. So hooray for three day chags! Can you believe I just said that? Me neither.
(And just a quick shout-out to Goldie who let me come over at 11:30pm on Tuesday night to wash the baby’s bottles. It’s good to have good friends who can’t sleep.
Anyway, so Wednesday morning the plumber came, handed us a quote for an unmentionable number of dollars and went to work. It physically hurt me not to get three or four (or five) other quotes (just a little life lesson from Alissa) for our little project but we were kind of between a rock and hard place with the chag starting so instead we just smiled and handed over our credit card. And now, a small fortune and a half later, we are the proud owners of a shiny new water heater. I can’t even frame it and show it off. Can you imagine company coming and saying – “Wow, your home is so lovely, have you done any work lately?” and me saying, “Yes. Yes we have. Would you like to see my overpriced new water heater? It’s just down these steps.” Next up: Some actual Sukkah decorations.
Are you a Mom?
Of course you are,
your shirt is dirty :)
