update because it's been awhile...

It's hotter than Hades in NYC! Last time I wrote a public post was February. Since then my mother passed away and my family behaved like asshats. I haven't spoken to them in almost 4 months and my peace of mind has slowly returned. Before my mother passed away, she told me not to walk away from conversion. So now I have a dead woman pushing me forward. Additionally, I may be able to inherit her apartment so having affordable permanent digs would be nice. I don't live within the eruv but it's not so bad because I don't have to deal with a stroller and all that ying yang that comes with infants. If I can't I have a backup plan in place.

Some people on my other blog requested to read this so I will reset this so it's half public and half private. Oh boy techie stuff, whee!

I love living in NYC! This community is trying really hard to bring us into the fold. I'm beginning to be a socialista despite what NJ trained me to do :( A bad community can really ruin a person.

So I am thankful for what I have and working towards where I'm going. Thankfully, the stench of NJ is leaving.

I love the title of this blog!
As one of the few Hispanic Jews around these parts, I always get this! Once there was another Hispanic woman at shul, and everyone there assumed she was my mom. My MIL, bless her heart, didn't understand why I would be annoyed at this. "She's pretty, it's a compliment," MIL said. Not the point.........

Re: I love the title of this blog!
LOL! Oh I know... some folks are so clueless. The title was inspired by a woman who lives in my former community. Someone said that to her the first shabbos I attended there. After that, she refused to speak to me. She was so insulted that she never spoke to me and made sure she was on the other side of the room. The whole thing was so stupid. Then again, most of the community was kind of blah anyway so there you go!

When my mom passed away, people thought every white person in the funeral home was related to my husband.

It's hard to relay to a white person the sheer annoyance of having to deal with that all the time. Once, or twice fine. But every single freakin' time?!
