So we tried to go to service yesterday. Mom said I should focus on the successes so here we go, we got all the kids fed, dressed and in the car almost on time. We got ourselves dressed and in the car. We also drove all the way there, though that one section of the freeway where there is no place to turn around was a little sketchy. I made it through the first round of Shabbat Shalom and where have you all been. Then I also actually enjoyed the prayer time and singing. I then again made it through the second round of Shabbat Shalom and here was where it went downhill. I felt trapped, flushed and frantic. Thankfully Bobby and I had already discussed that we may be leaving on short notice. He looked up from his dancing and knew…ah almost 20 years of secret silent messages paid off…and he was ready to whisk me away to safety. Who says there aren’t knights on white horses?
We made a very hasty exit right before the Torah processional…and after a quick drive home. I enjoyed a nice lunch, took a long nap and then Bobby and I went out to dinner…without the kids, thanks Mom! Over all it was a great day, I wish I could have made it through the service, but we will try again next week. 🙂
