The World is Defrosting

Posted by mwallach on February 18, 2011 in Crazy Follows Me Everywhere, My Kids, New To You

Dear That’s Life, You are not going to believe this. There is grass in my backyard. I know – it is hard to believe, but it is true. The nice weather we have had for the last couple of days has thawed out the neighborhood, revealing toys that serve as a reminder the last nice [...]

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 [...]

The Wipers on the Bus Go Swish, Swish, Swish

Posted by mwallach on January 19, 2011 in Crazy Follows Me Everywhere, New To You

Dear That’s Life, There are days when I really think I’m really losing it.  Sometimes it is what I bring on myself.  Other days, it is what outsiders have brought upon me, whether I know it or not. The blessings in my life come in many forms, including the two SUVs my husband and I drive.  I [...]

So Much for the Snow Angels

Posted by mwallach on January 12, 2011 in My Kids, New To You

Dear That’s Life, There’s nothing like the moment when you open an informational packet that comes with a new medication and read that, “kidney function decreases with age.”  Trust me. It’s a real pick-me-up. After sharing that disclaimer with my doctor, he reminded me that unfortunately, our bodies do not get better with age.  I insisted [...]

There’s a Storm Front Comin’

Posted by mwallach on January 11, 2011 in My Kids, New To You

Dear That’s Life, Well, well, well.  School has already been cancelled because it is snowing – again. The truth is that I am not complaining.  I mean, I would prefer to put my kids on the bus in the morning and wave as they drive away.  But I like the snow.  I like watching it [...]

A Little Like “Lord of the Flies”

Posted by mwallach on December 29, 2010 in My Kids

Dear That’s Life, Day 3 - still no school Resources have been restocked.  Have sent for reinforcements.  Went to Costco last night – bought like there was no tomorrow.  We now have enough milk and hot cocoa mix to last us another storm.  And pears – bought lots of pears.  Morale is high – the natives [...]

This is Only a Test

Posted by mwallach on December 28, 2010 in My Kids

Dear That’s Life, It’s day 2 of Snow Storm survival and school is still cancelled. Having been to the one of the kosher supermarkets in the area before the storm hit, people were buying up everything and anything that it looked like erev Yom Kippur and erev Tisha B’Av had fallen out on the same day.  [...]

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 [...]
