Menu planning, cooking, shopping.
I couldn't find my Passover folder.
It wasn't in the Passover box.
Then I thought back to the end of last Passover, when everything was hastily broken down as we....broke down.
And then I was able to find my folder shoved onto a high shelf, where I had dumped it in my attempt to pretend that it wasn't a holiday any more....
When I sent the email explaining how many members of my family would attend the synagogue seder, I started by typing, "the six of us," and then I had to delete those words...
I stared at the folder as I began to consider this year's menus.
I stared at it and I wondered how I would ever celebrate this holiday again...
Then I took a deep breath and wrote out some menus.
My house is unprepared.
My head is unprepared.
My heart is unprepared.
But I've still got a week to go, right?

|April, 2012 - a Passover outing. I remember that we brought a box of matzah crackers to snack on at this park.|
