It's getting closer...and the pressure's on. Every single day I think of yet another thing to do before Pesach. And that's BESIDES cleaning and cooking and planning and shopping. There's the cleaners (what am I going to wear?), there's a haircut (before Sfirah)there's packing (I'm going away early on the first day of Chol Hamoed after 3 days of Yom Tov with company in my house)and the various birthday cards (April is a big month in my family), paying all the bills before Yom Tov and vacation, closing the office properly for all the days of Pesach... the list is endless. The most important thing, though, is planning for my food and to make sure I dont fall victim to snack attack and chocoholism - because that would ruin everything, and i wouldnt enjoy this beautiful time of year - hectic, yes, but really nice, too. So with everything going on, i have to make sure that i have a Pesach vegetable soup, roasted vegetables, baked potatoes, salads, and everything I need - a Pesachdig scale, measuring equipment and water bottle. I am no longer surprised that these seemingly small preparations make THE difference in my Yom Tov. A good Pesach to all...
