Tomorrow night Purim begins; Em is 'acting' the part of Queen Esther during the Megillah reading at our synagogue, and has been planning out her costume incessantly. N made himself about a dozen different masks at the Purim Carnival on Sunday, so he's covered, too.
"And what are *you* coming as?" my friend F asked me.
"An overworked, overcommitted, totally frazzled mother of two," I replied without hesitation. "And you?"
And with that, I hope you'll understand when I say that I have no time to write anything more tonight. I'm much too busy getting into costume.
