My title has my Jewish readers (if any are left at this point in the frantic days leading up to Passover….) scratching their heads in bewilderment. After all, there are only (after today) 4-and a-half days left until we reach the seder* evening, houses hopefully chometz-free**, and festive holiday foods bubbling on the stove. The amount of work involved is tremendous, and there is little else dominating our thought this morning.
But this morning, I discovered luxury. I awoke at the normal time (6:40 AM), and remembered that Ricki has no school today. That means no bus to catch. So I turned over and slept another hour.
I have 13 more I-decide-when-to-get-up mornings left until Ricki returns to school after Pesach (Passover).
*seder evening: the first night of Passover, the seder is held, a festive recitation of the exodus from Egypt.
** chometz-free: before Passover, we empty our houses of all leavened bread and product ("chometz")
