Sleeping In

I had this dream last night that I was in a science class. And when I looked in my backpack, I kept finding half-finished worksheets that I didn’t remember doing and that I definitely didn’t remember being asked to turn in. I suppose this is a clue as to how many of my students experience my class on a daily basis.

I went to two seders this week. Monday’s was at my grandparents’ house, and it was Stephen’s first seder. Yesterday I drove to Anaheim Hills to visit my sorority sister Courtney who was in town and who had invited me to her parents’ seder. Courtney and one of her coworkers who was also there work for a Jewish organization in Boston that had created their own Hagaddah app for smartphones, so we used that last night. In a way it was a nice change, thought it felt so weird to all be sitting around the table with our phones out. The app even came with musical accompaniment for each of the songs.
