I know I have been away long enough, but I had a very good reason…my son’s Bar-Mitzvah!
We have been getting ready for it for about 6-9 months and now that it’s over I feel completely pooped!
For the past year he had been meeting with his Hebrew tutor to learn his Torah portion and for the past few months I was meeting with vendors to make sure the party that he wanted would run without any glitches.
Who I was kidding – of course there were glitches !
10 minutes before services, I received an email from the hall, where the party is supposed to be that they are canceling everything because they don’t have a copy of my contract! WHAT!?!?!?!
On the way to the party, about an hour before all our guests arrived – I had to meet all the vendors – I broke down and started to cry uncontrollably. Max decided to put a stop to it and told me that I will not be allowed to greet his friends red- eyed and red – nosed and without any makeup.
Have you ever dealt with 70 thirteen year-old hormonal kids? NO! Neither have I, and I prefer not to deal with them ever again. There is nothing but drama between them and it does not matter if they are boys or girls. We had to console a girl, she was crying because the boy she likes does not like her…. we had to break up two guys because they think they like the same girl and wanted to start a fight.
Oh and I forgot to mentioned the most important glitches – I failed to lose the weight and had to alter my dress, so I could actually sit in it and I also decided that it would be a good idea to get a facial a week before the event – only to get an allergy reaction from one of the creams the lady used on me….
….. but other then a few glitches it was a wonderful and very meaningful event, which I’ll write about it in my next blog.
