Pesach 5770 is coming to a close soon. It’s been mellow and lovely.
In the past, I’ve envied friends who would go away to a hotel or resort for Pesach and not have to clean quite as vigorously or to do all their own cooking. But when it comes down to it, I’m happier doing the cleaning and kashering so I can be home, sleeping in my own bed, and sitting around the table with my kids just eating matzo with jam and honey. And after having huge amounts of leftovers after the seder, I’m going to scale my seder menu way back (e.g. hearty chicken soup with meat/vegetables/matzo balls, salad, rice or quinoa pilaf, and dessert of course). Renting a car (so we don’t have to strap Bill to the roof, as Banana so helpfully suggested once) and taking day trips to the zoo and the beach was all the excitement we needed, and dear friends visiting today and wolfing matzo pizza with us was great fun.
