Shana Tova

Happy Rosh Hashanah to everyone!  I love new year celebrations - a sense of renewal and starting again.  Vince and Edda were lucky enough to have the day off of school - why MCPS celebrates Jewish holidays and none other is always a bit perplexing (I always want to have Chinese New Year off - I think the number of Jewish folks and the number of Chinese folks in the public schools are relatively comparable).  As we were not going to new year services today, I was clever enough to schedule the kid's flu shots for this morning - more than a month in advance.  I love to pat myself on the back for small successes that show off my scheduling prowess, I'm not good at very much, but I love to keep the household well scheduled.

When I made the appointment, they mentioned that they were out of the flu-Mist vaccine, the one that is sprayed up your nose like a backwards sneeze.  So I could not confirm Vince's anxious question - am I going to get the shot, or can I get the nose one?  So he was on pins and needles the whole ride over.  Edda, on the other hand, doesn't really give a rat's ass about shots.  Also, I'm not sure how I would tell her to suck up the nose medicine into her sinuses.   Anyways, they had the Mist in stock (thank goodness) - Vince was able to get his up the nose and hilarity at the doctor's office ensued.

Yea for you being so organized. Though you wouldn't agree, I think Doris, you are very organized. Love Edda's hair too. Give she and Vince a hug from me.

Noel, I love reading your posts. I've never been to China and it sounds so interesting.
