Weekend Open Thread

Happy weekend, everyone! I hope you have a wonderful Passover and/or Easter if you celebrate either. We are seder-ing and egg hunting and singing Dayenu. Jackson is currently practicing the Four Questions in Hebrew. On Sunday we fly to Missouri to spend the week with my parents. (Drew is bringing his own matzah; who knows if there’s any to be found in Springfield, Missouri). The kids and my mother are counting the hours ’til we land. I am counting the loads of laundry I still have to do before now and 6 am Sunday when we leave. Oy vey.

Update: My parents called from the grocery store. There was a Jewish aisle with matzah and gefilte fish, so they got some; Drew is going to survive Passover in the Ozarks, guys.

    I’m flying over Hawaii!!!! I’m gonna make it! I may get a cheeseburger at McDonald’s when I land to celebrate.. I know that’s gross but those little onions. Mmmm

    Radio star is in Missouri for Easter too, they’re celebrating his birthday as a family as well as my inlaws new house (and I hope to receive a report that they purchased new guest beds that are comfortable, hopefully queen sized and not 45 years old). Love them, I do. They’re wonderful people. But the guest bed makes me cry.

    My sister in law is scheduled for a c section on Wednesday. Baby isn’t due until the 10th but already 9 pounds 9 oz. yikes. I asked radiostar what he’s done to me, but he claims his brother got the ‘big’ gene so we may get by with an 8 pounder. Seriously tho. I’m from big stock myself but at least we were two weeks late and 9 pounds.

    Anyway, if I ever make it to Chicago, I’m making a biscuit bar Sunday for my brother, my sister in law and a few friends still around town. I’m planning to head to 2nd Presbyterian church for 11 am service (gorgeous stained glass inside.. cool craftsman history). Anyone in Chicago is welcome to join me.

    Was the matzah found in Missouri actually Kosher for Passover?! My first year living in Texas I found that though the grocery store stocked matzah, it was “not for Passover use.”
    Still puzzled as to why anyone would eat matzah any other time of year…
