Lizrael Update: Back-to-work edition.

Long time no lizrael update. Let’s see…

Currently, I’m mentally preparing for the Tisha B’Av scene. It’s been a fairly long nine days, what with eating meat being forbidden and eating dairy being unwise. Koala has bad reactions when I eat milk products, so I’ve pretty much stayed away for the last 3 months. I miss cottage cheese. Yes, cottage cheese.

I did my fasting-while-breastfeeding halachic research (namely, asked my rav) and I’m prepared to do what I need to do. Whatever happens now, Yom Kippur is going to be killer later. Sigh.

My brother’s in town and it’s been fun having an uncle around to hang with the Koala. They’re getting along fabtabulously.

Next week I officially go back to work, though I’ll be working from home for a while. The plan is try to get into the office when I can to keep in touch and get into the mood. I was already working from home quite often in the end of my pregnancy but this will be a daily schedule for me. Looking forward to the challenge and chiseling out a nice, healthy schedule.

That’s all for now. Gotta hang with Koala for these last precious hours of government-paid freedom…
