Уже третья неделя как мы вернулись из отпуска. По приезду, попала в колесо, как белка. Вот только сейчас немного можно перевести дух.

На недельку мы побывали в раю на комфортабельном круиз корабле в удивительных местах на Аляске и в городе Виктория в Канаде. Мы собрали самых близких родственников и друзей, наша компашка была из 18 человек. Мы отмечали 4 дня рождения, 50 лет свадьбы наших друзей и так же, неожиданно получили печальное сообщение о смерти бабушки моего мужа и мамы моего свёкра. Ей было 97, пришло её время, светлая память ей! Это было печально, но мы были все вместе и поддерживали друг друга. Мужу и его папе поменяли билеты на самолёт что б они попали на похороны. Так что мы отмечали и жизнь и смерть, а главное все вместе... Вот немного фоток:Fotki: )

Every 2nd Sunday of the month, MIA has a family day with various activities for the kids.  Every month they have a different theme.  I took kids to the three previous days and can't wait to go there in September.  What a wonderful place to spend time with kids, find interesting art pieces, make art and hangout together.

In August, the theme of the day was insects and outdoors.  Kids made bugs out of clay, they made origami bug with real neon light and we were doing a scavenger hunt all over the museum.  After finding all paintings, kids got plastic toy bugs of their choice.
One of the pictures that we had to find was this one:

"Есть одна старая хасидская история о человеке, который вёл разговор с Господом о Рае и Аде.  <Я покажу тебе Ад", -с этими словами Господь ввёл человека в красивый банкетный зал, полный истощённых, злых, отчаявшихся людей, сидящих вокруг больших круглых столов на которых стоят вкуснейшие и ароматные яства, которых хватило бы на всех.  У человека рот наполнился слюной от ароматного запаха еды.  Тем не менее никто не ел.  У каждого едока к руке были прикреплены метровые ложка и вилка - достаточно длинные, чтобы дотянуться до еды на столе, но слишком длинные, чтобы можно было положить еду в рот.  Каждый пытался набрать побольше еды и донести до рта, но этим только задевали соседей, делали друг другу больно и сами оставались голодными.  Человек понял, что страдания этих людей и в самом деле ужасны, и сочувственно склонил голову.

<А теперь покажу тебе Рай>, -сказал Господь, и они вошли в другую комнату, точную копию первой - тот же зал с яствами, люди с длинными приборами присоединёнными к рукам.  Однако здесь царила атмосфера веселья: все было сытыми, упитанными и розовощёкими.  Человек в замешательстве посмотрел на Господа, потом присмотрелся и обнаружил что люди в этом зале научились кормить друг друга и при том давать соседу напротив то что он просит а не то что дающему
удобнее дать. "

Эта история очень полезна в семейных отношениях, и особенно когда они рушатся.  Ну и вообще в отношении с людьми...
Я её впервые прочитала у И.Ялома в книге Теория и Практика Групповой Психотерапии, а потом слышала на лекции о семейных отношениях от Ашера Кушнира.  Кстати, очень рекомендую прослушать эти лекции всем людям на земле вне зависимости от религиозных взглядов.  Или хотябы одну - лекцию The Secret to Happy Family Life in  RUSSIAN бесплатно в МP3 формате.

End of 2011!  What a year?!

So much happened, life was boiling and at times I couldn’t catch up and needed a tune up.  There were few weddings and a lot of funerals; financial and relationship ups and downs in my family; wonderful friends;teaching ballet; acting in a play; amazing vacations, with family to CA and Mexico and my amazing trip to Israel; year of learning Torah with Rabbi Goldberger; year of learning Hebrew; year of learning to draw!!! 

Kids are growing and bring so much joy into our lives!  I am so lucky to have such wonderful family!!! 

I am truly blessed, I have everything!!!

I am so thankful to my parents, my husband, his parents for care and support!!!

Let the 2012 be as rich as 2011 but without the funerals and with good health for everyone!

Last week was super eventful at home and at work.  My sister came from CA for a wedding; my cousin-in-law (very good friend of my sister) got married on Thursday night.  It was a very beautiful wedding that she managed to plan in 1.5 week!!!   The wedding started after 8pm because of the post and we left after midnight.  We also got invited to some after wedding party next Wednesday night at Boris’ relatives house.

A day before that, I had a rehearsal at the theatre after work.  I canceled my ballet class on Thursday because I had to get ready for the wedding.  Thursday, was actually super crazy day starting from the early morning until the wedding in the evening.

On Friday, In the morning I drove Yulya over my parents house and went to the weekly parsha class and then had to go to work for a meeting.  I was like a zombie at that meeting.  When I got home, I wanted to get some sleep but instead started cleaning and cooking and in the evening had guests over.

At work, I went to develop relationships with two different agencies YouthLink in Minneapolis and Hopkins Adult Basic Education center in the Eisenhower Community Center.  I will be working in Hopkins site a few times a month.  I will see individual clients or do workshops.   Also, had number of meetings at work.

 This week has been filled with more outside of my usual life activities then I am ready to handle and I got a little overwhelmed.  Today, I just wanted to rest and do nothing.  I drove Mishka to soccer, then my parents asked me to bring him over.  My parents took Mishka and Liza to the Mall of America and in the evening brought both of them over, so Liza is staying overnight here.

 My best friend invited us to go out with her to celebrate her anniversary of living in USA but I felt that it is too much plus we just got kids back on Friday night from my parents.  I don’t want to overwhelm my parents too all the time.  I felt very bad about refusing this invitation.  We already had to move her invitation from last week because of Masha’s unexpected wedding and party for the bride to be.   I hope we will be able to do something together very soon.

 Tomorrow is Purim and we are invited to at least 5 parties.  In addition to Purim, my parents want to go out for brunch to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary while Yulya with Liza are still here.  So, I am overwhelmed just thinking about our plan for tomorrow.  In the morning we will go to the Synagogue with Mishka then brunch and then we need to coordinate with Masha where she will be at the Purim party so we could actually meet her husband in person.

PS.  As I am typing this it started raining outside pretty hard.  I am afraid that kids (all 3 of them Liza, Misha and Michelle will wake up and be scared).  I hope they are sleeping tight and don't even hear it!!!!

On Sunday, we had a busy and very warm day.  After spending day at home on Saturday resting, I was determined to have adventures on Sunday.  Kids woke up at about 8am, by the time we got dressed and ate breakfast it was almost 10am.  My friend and I agreed to take kids to Macy’s annual holiday display show.  I have heard about this show but never had a chance to go there.  So, we packed kids in their car seats and went to downtown Minneapolis.  We parked at the ramp of Radisson hotel.  The ramp was heated, so we left all our jackets in the car, took elevator to the skyway level.  Girls enjoyed running in the store and riding on the elevators.  Mishka kept hanging on me, I guess he was jealous that I was holding Michelle more often then I paid attention to him.  He kept trying to tell me some story about some football players that I didn’t have interest or time or place to listen to.  I had to watch out after running Michelle, keep up conversation with my friend and find the right way to go.

I celebrated Yom Kippur with our family this year.  On Friday, I was feeling guilty that my in-laws will come over and I will feed them while they supposed to fest, even though I know they are not observant but it would have been on my conscience.  So, I asked Boris to invite them earlier.  We ate and finished with the desert right at 7:20pm.  I was not feeling well but decided that I will try to fest.  Boris followed my lead and truly stuck to the fest through the whole time.  I was drinking some water with lemon once in a while because of my sore throat and fever.

It was hard not to eat when I was feeding kids.  The food smelled very good and I just wanted to finish what they didn’t finish (as usually).  I was strong enough not to eat all day. 

I have a book that describes all Jewish holidays for kids in Russian.  I read the chapter about Yom Kippur and gave it to Boris, so he would understand the meaning behind his fest.  Also, I read part of that chapter to Michael who actually was not behaving well.  I hope he has learned a lesson.

In the evening we went to Torah Academy for the final prayer with Aish Minnesota.  It was an interesting experience.  I was glad that my friends also made it there and later on Masha came with Tanya.  I finally got to meet in person Sarah and Berl Simpser the organizers of the events.  We had a long conversation with Sarah before we left. 

Michelle played in the daycare area for about 10 minutes and then I heard loud cry.  I went to the gym where woman who was supervising kids was holding her and trying to calm her down.  I called Michael and gave him her pacifier and tried to stay away from her view and see if she will calm down.  She kept crying, so I went and took her with me to the service once she was quite.  She stayed quiet for a long time but then got bored and started making loud noises with the books on the table.  So, at the end of the services I was in and out because of Michelle.  I was happy that Boris went with us; I was actually planning to go there by myself with kids only.  I guess lead by example works pretty well.

Next is Succot on Wednesday night at Masha’s succah.

I am exhausted after this weekend.  The weather is not helping.  On Friday we got real cold Fall weather over the weekend it has been windy and weird, today it was raining on and off.  Gloomy all day. 

I don’t like long weekends when we have no plans.  This one was one of them.  It was real labor day for me.  I have been laboring alas working most of the time.  When I am at home, there is no end to home work and taking care of kids:  cooking, cleaning, washing dishes, laundry, changing diapers, entertaining kids, cleaning, etc.... 
I was trying to take a break and hide a few times to read a book, but it didn’t work for long.  Michelle got really independent now and just quietly wonders around the house in search of mommy.

This morning I dropped kids at my mom and went to meet and listen to Rav Polonsky [livejournal.com profile] pinchas It was somewhat short lecture and the first part was a little over my head.  I will write about it separately.  I bought one of his books and got his autograph.  I like that he is looking for new ways and new understandings of Torah and traditions.  He also appreciates all information that is given rather then opposing it right away as many do.  I was even questioning if he is considered a trivial persona amongst traditional religious Jews because of his accepting views. 

After the lecture I went to pick up kids and got stock at my parents house as usually.  I also had a flat tire.  Eventually, Mishka talked me into taking him to the pool at our community center.  I agreed to do it only without Michelle.  I had about 1.5 hr to read my book while he was playing in the water.  I am somewhat frustrated because I am reading 4 books at the same time and absolutely have no time to finish at least one of them.

I am getting rusty and started seriously feeling my developing over the year’s arthritis.  My right wrist is in pain since Friday.  I tried to stay away from computer all weekend, just spent some time each evening.  No matter what I do, I need to use my right arm.  It is pretty annoying.  I put some warming cream and put on a wristband, I hope it will go away.     

 Can’t wait to go to work tomorrow and get some rest.

This weekend has been pretty tiring for me.  I have been cooking, serving food, cleaning, watching kids, listening to some troubled people’s stories and now I am totally exhausted. I don't need to cook for the next week since I made enough food for a week (I think).

On Friday, we had a professional photo shoot of our family at our house.  We planned to do it outside but the weather was not very happy on Friday and we ended up doing studio pics.  It is not easy with two kids.  Mishka was annoyed with the whole process and his clothes and Michelle just wanted to be a model by herself (she did pretty good :).  I was happy that photographer came to our house and kids felt good being home.  I can't wait to see the pics.  I saw them on the camera and really liked some of them.  Some have to be edited some...

I am glad that tomorrow is another day off and I arranged babysitting in the morning for a few hours.  I hope I will catch up on some rest and change of scenery.

I feel like Boris and I are such boring parents.  We hardly ever plan any fun trips for Mishka.  We don't go camping together, we don't take him to the museums, we haven't been in any big state parks in MN, I don't even know where our nearest beach on the lake.  Once in a while when someone else pushes us to do these things we gladly do it, hardly ever our initiative.  I need to start changing this.  I guess it will be one of the new year resolutions to plan more educational and fun time with kids.  We are skipping the State Fair this year and Renaissance Festival and I guess already missed the Corn Maze.     

 

However, I am so itching to go somewhere, travel somewhere, but it is not a very good timing.  Mishka’s school starts on Tuesday.  There is no need to go anywhere and Boris wouldn’t just let me go like this.  Well, he would but I don’t think it would be right.  Plus I wish I could go somewhere with him.  Well, our next trip plan is to CA visit my sis for the new years with the kids.  I guess it is my egoistic desire talks and I will just squish it until right time will come!

 

Look forward to tomorrow’s lecture by Rav. Polonsky--[livejournal.com profile] pinchas .

This was a fun weekend!

We started partying on Friday night at the restaurant Baku.  It was Boris’ grandpa’s 95th birthday.  He looked great!  He did not change in his appearance since I met him for the first time about 15 years ago.  Of course he complains of some aches and pains here and there but walks and talks and thinks and even remembers everything.  He is an amazing person who lived through so much!!!

On Saturday, I had to wake up earlier then usually to go over my parents.  They had an appointment with a woman that would talk about final arrangements insurance.  Not a very pleasant topic but I guess an important one for people my parents’ age.  I think it is too early but they choose to do it now. 

We spent several hours with this woman and they signed up for that life insurance for the final arrangements.  We will have to meet with this woman again to see if my parents need any other programs.  She also gave them information about making the will.  I am learning a lot of stuff with these representatives.  They convince people pretty well that they need a lot of insurances when they retire. So, I am trying to sort it out and explain to my parents.

In the evening, we took kids over my in-laws and went to the Solera restaurant to celebrate my friend’s birthday.  It was only 3 couples and we had great time.  I wished that evening would continue but we had to pick up kids and go to bed.
