there's a certain comfort in routine.

as Succot was drawing to a close, everyone was lamenting the end of the holidays and the forced return to "normal life"

i think i was the only one who was looking forward to it.

not that i didn't enjoy the family, food, more family and more food. it's hard to get adjusted to a school regimen when every three days I'm missing class. so now I've gotten my schedule all worked out. I've figured out exactly how much time i need in the morning so that i can sleep until the very last second and still have time to grab something to eat before i run off to the hospital. I'm managing to balance preparing in the morning before i leave for class so that i have everything i need to make dinner when i get home in the evening. and I've discovered that if i do laundry on Sundays, I've got the whole afternoon to do it so I'm less rushed and there's less of a chance that I'll lose a sock or turn an undershirt gray. (and if i do it on Sunday, Mr. FCG folds it :) )

except for the massive amounts of cooking, serving and cleaning up i love the laid backness of yom tov. I just seems cozier. (and I don't have to make lunches at night....I hate that)

I miss yom tov. This year I worked really hard- did it all myself... but I love the relaxation, the coziness, spending time together, no distractions. Real life just seems so much less.... I dont know. I guess it just seems like a long way until Chanukah

hi fellow frum college girl!
I can sympathize. I ended up missing so much class because of the 3 day yuntifs that I ended up dropping a class. It's not easy, but worth every missed quiz :)
