I am always amused by these fun games online, and this one cracked me up. I need glasses to drive and to watch a show, but otherwise my vision is descent, and I actually prefer to see outlines when I teach my classes. I only wear contacts when I am going to an event or concert, because then I really want to see and not miss a thing.  Yes I am always looking for my glasses, especially my prescription sunglasses, which I wear all the time living in Los Angeles, and can see everything crystal clear.  I finally got a mini sac, which is a mix between a purse and a backpack, with multiple pockets for organizing everything from money to gadgets. So overall I do my best to put my prescription sunglasses, and my regular glasses in the same spot, which I need for indoor events or night driving.

If I did write a memoir of my life, and if you do not know this already about me, probably one of the chapters would be, “I am not domestic.” I was blessed with a cleanaholic husband who has been told he should cater or be a chef.  I can make basics, but definitely the way to my heart is through my stomach, and another chapter would be, “I love being serviced.”  So yesterday we had a whole lunch plan at our place with friends, and then would hang out together the rest of the day.  My husband was waiting on a business call, and finally got it over the weekend, and couldn’t make our lunch. Of course I wasn’t going to cancel it, we had planned it for weeks.  It was old friends, bringing new friends, and a fun day for the kids. So luckily, we had basics in the fridge, I attempted to mimic his famous salad, and even marinated and made a decent chicken. Following some of his directions, and help of You Tube.  Luckily, Thank God, everyone said everything was delicious, but boy are they in for a treat when they join us for Shabbat dinner and taste the real deal.

I am proud of myself,

It was a lot of work,

Hats off to the cooks and stay at home parents,

I would not survive more than a day,

I always see the positive, but know when to call it quits,


Coach Yulia
