‘Twas the Night Before the Wedding

Posted by mwallach on April 28, 2011 in New To You

Dear That’s Life, What do you think Kate is doing right now, the night before her wedding? It was reported today that she had to leave her job to devote her time to princess preparations and training, forcing me to picture Anne Hathaway in ‘The Princess Diaries’ and wonder if they tied Kate to a [...]

You Want WHAT for Lunch?!

Posted by mwallach on April 27, 2011 in Crazy Follows Me Everywhere, My Kids

Dear That’s Life, Of course, the most logical thing my kids would want to take for lunch on the first day back to school after Pesach is matza with cream cheese. My eldest daughter wants matza brei. All of this makes perfect sense here in Chelm, where fresh bagels and chocolate chip muffins arrived early [...]

My Oven: Part Tres

Posted by mwallach on April 27, 2011 in Crazy Follows Me Everywhere, Happy Holidays, New To You

Dear That’s Life, So, you thought my oven was fixed – didn’t you? You thought wrong. Me and my big mouth. When we last left Miriam’s oven, the oven repair superhero had saved it from self-clean hell, as the mechanism burned out the computer panel in what is a clear design flaw. With one week [...]

The Road Less Travelled

Posted by mwallach on April 18, 2011 in Happy Holidays, My Kids, New To You

Dear That’s Life, It is amazing how driving just a couple of miles away from The Five Towns can often take you to what seems like a completely different world. That has its pluses and its minuses. However, with Peninsula Boulevard looking more like the moon and less like a street, I’ll take any opportunity [...]

It’s Not Easy Being Red

Posted by mwallach on April 14, 2011 in Crazy Follows Me Everywhere

Well, it seems the Mets are off to another auspicious start. I do not say that as a Mets fan who is already disappointed and hopes that this season will be less painful than others. I say that as a happy Yankee fan who is happily married to a Mets fan as I wonder aloud, [...]

A Holiday Miracle

Posted by mwallach on April 14, 2011 in Happy Holidays, My Kids, New To You

Dear That’s Life, If you heard the screaming coming out of my house this week, that was the sound of my legs getting natural sunlight for the first time since last summer. (Bright light! Bright light!) The tights are off, I’m wearing short sleeves and I’m this close to breaking out my Naot. Spring has [...]

Oven Repair Part Deux

Posted by mwallach on April 11, 2011 in Crazy Follows Me Everywhere, Happy Holidays, New To You

Dear That’s Life, File Under: Oven Status Update I had only left one semi-frantic voicemail for the oven repair service, although it did not stop me from leaving another and then calling the emergency number they have on their message. This was not an emergency like “I just shot the staple gun in my hand [...]

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Posted by mwallach on April 10, 2011 in Crazy Follows Me Everywhere, Happy Holidays, New To You

Dear That’s Life, Every chag is marked by certain traditions. Before Rosh Hashannah, I take time to prepare all of the simanim (signs) that accompany the meal, the fish head my least favorite of the group. There is a specific kind of challah that is also part of that preparation which I do not make [...]

Much More than Cholent

Posted by mwallach on April 8, 2011 in New To You

Dear That’s Life, How is it possible that I enjoyed the annual YU Cholent Cook-Off without having tasted a thing? I am not sure but I know for a fact that it’s true. I was mocked for eating a tangerine while everyone else was devouring plates of cholent, but it was no less of an [...]

Are You Talkin’ To Me?

Posted by mwallach on April 8, 2011 in Uncategorized

Dear That’s Life, I need to have a word with my GPS. While I am not in the habit of having conversations with inanimate objects, I seem to have a love/hate relationship with that device. In an effort to remind it who’s boss, it may be time to have it out, once and for all. [...]

April Fools!

Posted by mwallach on April 5, 2011 in Happy Holidays, My Kids, New To You

Dear That’s Life, While I am not a fan of silliness, it does have its place in life and often offers a healthy break from the doldrums of every life. Silly is how I would describe myself as I walk into Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, becoming absolutely giddy when I see Mickey himself. I am, [...]

In a Full Sweat

Posted by mwallach on April 4, 2011 in Crazy Follows Me Everywhere, New To You

Dear That’s Life, I really don’t want to sweat while I have lunch and it is not particularly hot in here as I eat my salad and drink my coffee. Nevertheless, it could be the middle of August the way I look right now. And it is my own fault: I put way too much jalapeno [...]

Stuck to the Roof of My Mouth

Posted by mwallach on April 4, 2011 in My Kids

Dear That’s Life, As a parent, you try and expose your children to all of the good that life can offer, which often comes in many different forms. It may a trip to a museum, getting some ice cream after school for no reason at all or just some quality time alone playing ball.  Maybe, [...]
