Tooth Pain Stinks

Posted by mwallach on May 11, 2011 in New To You

Dear That’s Life, There is no need to read this entire article. The moral of the story is that tooth pain does not go away. Sorry for the spoiler. A little over a week before Pesach, I began experiencing pain in a tooth that already had a crown from a previous root canal. The pain [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Is Purim Over Yet?

Posted by mwallach on March 16, 2011 in Happy Holidays, My Kids, Tribe Members

Dear That’s Life, At the risk of being stoned by a masked and angry mob for saying this: I do not like Purim. I enjoy the megillah, love the story with its hidden meanings and appreciate the miracles, but on the whole if we skipped it, I’d be fine. As a child I relished the [...]

Can You Smell That Smell?

Posted by mwallach on March 13, 2011 in New To You, Tribe Members

Dear That’s Life, Certain smells bring me right back to my childhood. In an instant, I can be transported back to being a little girl in footie pajamas, standing at the top of the stairs. I cannot always predict when it will happen, when the moment will strike, but I know it will happen at [...]

The Gift that Keeps on Giving

Posted by mwallach on February 1, 2011 in Crazy Follows Me Everywhere, New To You

Dear That’s Life, Gift giving can be very challenging. Finding the right gift for the right person on the right occasion – I am stressed just thinking about it. When you hit the nail on the head, however, and the present is perfect, the appreciation you receive in return makes the effort worth while. A close friend of mine [...]
