“Sweet & Sour” is my version of that dinner table game where every guest says what the best and worst parts of the day were. As we head into the weekend, I think it’s important to get the bad stuff off your chest and remember the positives as a silver lining and energizing factor. When the weekend hits, I like to release the “sour” and embrace the “sweet.”
Sweet: My team at work is severely understaffed so I was freaking out a bit when the one other person I work with went on vacation for 6 days, today being the last. It is way too much work for one person, but on Wednesday I managed to accomplish a lot and felt like I really rose to the occasion.
Sour: It dawned on me this morning that this is the first time I’ll be at a seder with no family whatsoever. After a several years of hosting a seder in NYC, I’ve gotten into a groove (established a menu, traditions, etc.), but I’ve always had Matt with me to help me lead and provide a piece of home. It feels like something is missing this year.
