I thought of this phrase because Chanukah time is one of the busiest times in my family in terms of celebrations. My father's birthday (81 this year) and my mother-in-law's birthday (70 this year) always come out during this time. I have a number of nephews who were also born at the end of Kislev (Bar Mitzvah's past and future), and it turns out that good friends also have boys who were born during Chanukah.
So, for a family that hardly gets out to a restaurant, I have eaten out twice in the past three days, and we have a Bar Mitvah tonight.
Added to this is the fact that family members are moving from one apartment to another and we will help them out, and I have my one-day orientation at work this week.
This long introduction is just meant to say that I will be busy this week, and blogging will be light, but thank G-d it is because of good things.
