During which, as it turns out, I was just about as up to date on posts as I have been so far this year. Life, I believe, sort of got in the way. Which means that there was nothing between 1 April-9 April 2007 or there about. I was working at 10th Med Lab during this time period – which been renamed to CHPPM-EUR (Center for Health Promotion and Preventive Medicine-Europe) several years prior. The commute from Heidelberg to Landstuhl was a total pain and made only marginally sane by the steady diet of audio books into the CD player
So the best I can do for 2007 is the following from the end of March*.
There is less than 48 hours to go until the first Seder. For the second year in a row I am organizing it for our community. Since we are holding it at MTV Chapel Fellowship Hall, this gives me two kitchens to kasher. Naturally I spent a large amount of today either cleaning or pushing the four members of the family in residence to do their share. After a few flare-ups (no, I don’t give a whit about the grass length, no one can see it and doing email during daylight hours is not essential) I managed to brow beat the guys taking a large amount of trash to the recycling center and vacuuming.
The girls were supposed to be working on the kitchen and their rooms. Well, they have spent a lot of time in the kitchen and made some progress. But mostly I have been hearing their voices raised in harmony for the last few hours with interludes of solo opera from Nina. So I don’t think all that much is getting done. There are no cleaning or sorting sounds.
I am on load #8 of laundry and the turkey is thawing (the only kosher meat the commissary carries is turkey, chicken drumsticks and hot dogs. Since I did not have time to make a run to Strasbourg, turkey it is. No way is this crowd going to settle for a vegetarian meal.
I don’t see that I am going to have time until next weekend to update my projects webpage. At that point coding is going to look easy compared to eating more matzah!
* And, yes (they are absent), I am well aware that when I transferred almost 10 years of blog posts to the current server, the photos that I thought I had linked to import… well they didn’t import. Of course, I didn’t figure this out till the old server went off line…
