The Unsinkable Taste of Cheerios

Posted by mwallach on February 16, 2011 in Crazy Follows Me Everywhere, My Kids, New Yorkers

Dear That’s Life, It was never my intention to raise a bunch of food snobs. It is actually not what I had planned at all.  However, it is exactly what happened – almost. A self-declared foodie, I was never interested in making “kid food” when preparing dinner.  If my husband and I were having poached [...]

Fergie and Josh

Posted by mwallach on February 7, 2011 in My Kids, New To You, New Yorkers

Dear That’s Life, The Super Bowl is as American as apple pie.  Care or not who won, which commercial was the funniest or who was MVP, it just does not matter.  It may not even matter to some whether or not the vocal talent hired to sing the national anthem sang it properly or if she even knew [...]

I’m Comin’ Home

Posted by mwallach on February 3, 2011 in My Kids, New Yorkers

Dear That’s Life, It is nice to go away, but it is even nicer to come home. Getting home, however, was not as easy as it should have been for many travelers who flew the coop this winter break.  The snowstorm which hit the area impeded the return of many travelers, including the Wallachs and [...]

I’m Sorry – Did You Say Something?

Posted by mwallach on January 24, 2011 in New To You, New Yorkers

Dear That’s Life, The best thing to happen to a website is for thousands of readers to send it to thousands of their friends.  That’s like hitting the internet lottery.  Anything that can add or drive traffic to a particular site and in making it sensation, increases its popularity and potentially its revenue, creates a [...]

Here Come the Steelers

Posted by mwallach on January 20, 2011 in New Yorkers

A heavy sigh of relief could be heard across New York State as the Jets defeated the Patriots on Sunday night. Of course, that sigh was quickly followed by the uproarious chant of “J-E-T-S” recited almost in unison by fans everywhere. Would victory have been that sweet had it not been against the Pats who [...]

Miriam Ali

Posted by mwallach on January 9, 2011 in Crazy Follows Me Everywhere, New Yorkers

Dear That’s Life, As a self-proclaimed gym rat, it is very rare that a day goes by without exercising for at least an hour. Some people prefer to workout at home – and some people prefer not to work out at all. I bought my husband a hammock for Father’s Day a number of years [...]

Did Somebody Say, ‘Tequilla’?

Posted by mwallach on January 9, 2011 in New Yorkers

Dear That’s Life, There are a number of different conveniences that help us through our every day lives.  Some come at an extra cost and some are free of charge.  There are multiple dry cleaners who will pick-up and deliver to your door.  Some restaurants and businesses in the area will bring your order out [...]

Welcome to America

Posted by mwallach on January 4, 2011 in New To You, New Yorkers

Dear That’s Life, It isn’t every day that I walk into JFK holding a bunch of balloons.  Or a big cake box.  Or pompoms.  It definitely isn’t every day that I walk into JFK holding all three. Going to greet the gold medal Maccabi USA Youth Basketball team as they arrived from the games in [...]

Your Honor

Posted by mwallach on December 28, 2010 in New Yorkers

Dear That’s Life, Last week was a week of firsts: it was my first arraignment and the first time an adult ever walked on my back, let alone while answering a phone call and making an appointment. But let’s just talk about court. Having to appear before a judge in traffic court, I came prepared with [...]

New York State of Mind

Posted by mwallach on December 22, 2010 in Happy Holidays, New Yorkers

Dear That’s Life, “I’m in a New York state of mind.” – Billy Joel I walked through Penn Station and the usually hurried crowd seemed to be walking in a deliberate and cautious manner, as if being lead by a pace car. New Yorkers are not the laid back, “let’s take a stroll’ kind of [...]

A Mixed Marriage

Posted by mwallach on May 25, 2010 in Crazy Follows Me Everywhere, My Kids, New Yorkers

As in any other mixed marriage, my husband and I often encounter certain problems that I’m sure other couples have had to deal with. We try to do this gracefully, without alarming our kids and certainly not in public, but some times, our emotions flair and seem to get the best of us. We are [...]
