Commuter Family in Reverse

12 new Haggadahs, 2 white table cloths, 3 Seder plates and 6 bottles of wine ... we are ready. 
The routine is Commuter Husband travels from Houston to Dallas or is it Dallas to Houston?

We are in reverse this week for Spring Break. Oldest Son, Youngest Son and I traveled to Houston last Friday and we will be here until next Monday. We have lots packed into our 11 days in Houston ... work, play, friends and family.

Friday to Tuesday
The past weekend we shared an incredible country home in Cypress (outside Houston) with fun friends and from which we traveled to Oldest Son's State Quiz Bowl Tourney (2nd in State!) and celebrated Oldest Son's 13th Birthday and conducted our Passover Seder. The weekend included zip lines, go karts, basketball, horses and fresh eggs from the chicken coop!

Speedy Go Karts with horses in background. Enough said.
Farm Fresh!
Handmade place cards put kids on this end and adults on other ... traditional flip charts in sight.

Tuesday to Wednesday
On Tuesday, we made the shift to the Energy Corridor in Houston proper and minutes from Commuter Husband's workplace. Home is now a Priceline Deal 4 Star Hotel. We had a dinner picnic at Commuter Husband's office break room on leftover Passover roast and gefilte fish. We met Commuter Husband's boss and boys were impressed with Daddy's office - as it should be.

Today, I worked remote while Oldest Son and Youngest Son crossed the sky walk to take in a double feature at the mall Cinema. Cheap childcare mixed with some kid independence. We had dinner at Kenny & Ziggy's Deli with Aunt and Uncle. We visited, shared scrumptious food and boys received generous birthday goodies!
Food for the week. Really.

Commuter Husband brought me these at lunch ... definite benefits to being in Houston!


  1. Hi this is somewhat of off topic but I was
    wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to
    manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
