I hope everyone had an awesome Purim. We had a fever and tummy bug with my 3 year old, which made things more tricky, but we muddled through. Everyone had fun, we got to hear the megilla, the kids lightsaber-fought each other all day with no casualties, and it was just a fun day. The Indian seuda went over well with the adults, and the kids enjoyed the pizza they got for dinner. A good day overall!
Now it’s time to look at Passover. Not a crazy look, but just a look at what needs to get done and start thinking about when you can do it and what you can delegate.
Here’s the OJH master page of all things Passover! (I’ll update it as things become available).
- CRC Passover 2013 guide, OU Passover guide 2013, Star-K guide 2013
- Passover projects for kids (ideas and projects for fun and the seder)
- 10 good Passover reads (for kids) (still time to get these!)
- Passover planner (6 weeks or less, plus checklists) or a 1 page OJH-Pesach-planning-calendar-2013
- Planning meals around Passover (Because everyone needs to eat even when your kitchen is “out”)
- Passover spending series; a look at where the money goes: Food, kitchen, and other
- Turning over your kitchen (Making the kitchen kosher for Passover)

Take a breather after Purim, and then plan back toward your starting day!
