It's the little things

Today I got a $20 Starbucks gift card in the mail. All because I answered a survey. Which didn't tell me I'd be getting a $20 Starbucks gift card in the mail. It was an unexpected treat. That made me very happy.

It doesn't take much these days.

Go, JLo, Go!

I am SO not a fan, but that might change, since I think she is the first celebrity to come "out" as using infertility treatments to get pg.

Of course, whether that's willingly or un, who knows? B'sha'a tova to JLo & Marc. I hope she speaks out about this, and chooses to be open about her experiences.

And maybe she can convince her celeb peeps to make a donation to a fertility fund.

And convince Celine Dion to become the spokesperson for IAAC in Canada.

Whatever. I'm always happy when ART works for someone.

I'm baaaack

But not very willingly ;) Israel was fabulous, wonderful, incredible and stinkin' hot! But considering the "summer" we've been having here on the Wet Coast, I didn't complain once about being dry and warm. And dry.

I'm still a little jetlagged, and disappointed that Rachel Inbar and I couldn't connect, and well, disappointed to not still be in the Holy Land, but I have no time to recover, because I have to prepare for Rosh Hashana. Yes, it's my favourite kind of holiday - one that falls on a Thursday and Friday, followed immediately by Shabbat (who THINKS of these things?!). Oy.

Oh, and I have a sermon to write. I foolishly agreed to speak one of the days. And no one, absolutely no one, has invited us for any meals (there's that no-kids syndrome), so we have to prepare for all the meals. Lucky for me, I have such a wonderful cook for a husband!!

I haven`t had time to try to catch up with any of you on your blogs, so I truly hope everyone is doing well, and has had a good month. Maybe there`s some good news out there, too?

So Ketiva v'Chatima Tovah to those of you observe Rosh Hashana, and happy end of summer to those of you who don`t! Watch out for those fish heads...
