Giveret Shifra's Weekend Activities

I'm tired.
It's been one of those weekends where you are busy every minute and not much seems to get done... I hate that.
Since I came back home Thursday evening far to exhausted to prepare for shabbos I was happy to accept an invitation to spend Shabbos in NYC. It was nice but much too social for my liking. In addition, my husband and I were the oldest, married-est people around- and that gets a little depressing/annoying after a while.

I spent Sunday cleaning up the past weeks mess, doing laundry, catching my kids up on homework and baking chanuka cookies.

My brother had a tough shabbos and ended up back in ICU for a while, but getting well is hard work. Hopefully he will be back in a regular room today. Once things settle down at home and at work I hope to get back into a regular posting rhythm. Thanks again to all of you for your good wishes.

-Shifra

"Giveret" is way too formal for this post/blog. It usually would go with a last name. (IMHO, Giveret Almonit sounds better if you want to stick with the Giveret).

Thanks for the reference, Shifra.

Please continue to keep us updated on your brother. I hope from here on in it gets much easier for him, and for those who care about him...

That's true I also hate that every day I wish to stay at home and sleep, and sleep but it's difficult because I gotta work.
