Much-Belated Update

OK, I'm back. Sorry for going away. :)

This past week has been busy and fun and a little stressful. Since Wednesday, I've only spent two nights in my own bed in Portsmouth! I've also:
  • worked two busy days at my new job (the one I got through my current position)
  • had a beer with a couple of girls from my graduate program/part-time job
  • freaked out & cried when my car decided not to start - twice!
  • canceled my very first plans in Portsmouth to visit my two best friends in Boston (one of them came home from NYC unexpectedly for Rosh Hashanah)
  • imbibed more than a few drinks with the girls & their boyfriends
  • watched a lot of Red Sox - some good, some bad, some ugly (Friday night broke my heart!)
  • babysat for my nephew
  • found out that my sister's second child will be a boy! I'm going to have two nephews, you guys. (insert big auntie grin here)
  • tutored two students in MA on the way home from my sister's
  • done a ton of reading for class
  • made plans for a regular Monday lunch with two of my classmates/new friends
Whew! I hope you all have a good week & I promise to update more regularly this week. ;)

That's all fine. What, however, do you think about Obadiah Shoher's criticism pf Rosh Hashanah as aholiday that has nothing to do with New Year? Here, for example http://samsonblinded.org/blog/petty-paganism.htm

Hi Nikol,

Your comment (and the linked article) really have no relevance to my post. Furthermore, I have friends of many different religions and am very much a "live and let live" kind of girl. Thanks for stopping by, though!

Sounds like you're having fun and congrats on becoming an aunt again!

Are you going to UNH by any chance?? That's where I did my undergrad. I LOVE Portsmouth :)

Hey Susie,

I AM at UNH, yeah! Glad you liked both it and Portsmouth when you were here. :)

That's awesome! Say hi to Durham for me, especially Ham Smith where I spent most of my time. I also worked at Hayden Sports and the Outback, so if you're ever in there, tell the man in charge (Roger) you "know" me. Aww I'm getting all nostalgic now!
