It feels like I've been away forever.
It happens every year about this time. Winter is just over, 8 days of Passover come calling, and I start to do weird things like forget what day it is and where in the world I am.
Because I have been, literally, all over the world in the past two weeks, hence my absence from my little corner of the internet.
We started off with a week with David's family in Tel Aviv, Israel in a hotel by the ocean, where we woke up to this view every morning.
We flew back late last week on an all night flight and took a two day breather at home before packing up again, getting on another plane, and flying to Ohio to spend the second half of the holiday with my parents, sisters, brothers-in-law, niece and nephew. We got back early this morning, went from the airport straight to work, and have spent the day in a fog of exhaustion laced with the happy haze that comes from spending days with the people we love most.
In a little while I will gather my things and make my way home, where I will almost certainly collapse on the couch and spend the rest of the night catching up on all the TV I missed over the past weeks and ignoring 4 unpacked suitcases and the mountains of laundry that await.
It was a fun spring break, and certainly a Passover for the ages.
And now. Now, I'm glad to be back, to reclaim my routine that fell by the wayside while I was away, to be back here, writing away.
As spring passes by and summer looms invitingly on the horizon there is lots of fun and excitement coming up.
I hope you'll be here to join me.
