Passover 2011

Less than an hour until the closing days of yontiff.  I did not get to take the yom tovim off due to obligations of the new job but I got a long weekend for Good Friday, one of the fringe benefits of working for the Catholic Church.  I recycled my Bar Mitzvah Haftarah for Shabbat HaGadol, had a relatively placid though late First Seder with the G's but without Bob and Stanley.  Second Seder a sedate and minimal frills effort, just Irene and me.  Good Friday a little stressful making dinner and trying to keep from having to drive to Mercy for an urgency that could have been easily handled by telephone.  Shabbos morning at AKSE where my shacharit went OK though a little off-form perhaps, the Rabbi got miffed when the Cantor departed the Bimah for the mixed Shir Ha-Shirim, a quiet not too stressful afternoon at the hospital on Saturday afternoon and a restful Easter Sunday.  There was a fair amount of stuff open but I did not stop anywhere except the Gulf Station.  I needed the rest.  Next long weekend not that far off, Memorial Day.
