    Today i had to be at work, i didn’t want to, i was hoping not to, but that is besides the point right now.

    I was very excited that this week is designated as standardized testing week and i have to spend the mornings proctoring to children with accomodations. This means I don’t really do my “work”, I am just present to read or type answers.

    The students are provided snacks by the school and they brought them with them to the testing room. One of the students asked if I had mints as his teacher was giving them out. I sent him back to the teacher to get his mint. When he came back he had a whole plate of lifesavers wintergreen mints and he said, “here, they’re yours to keep”!!!!!!!


    I don’t want to own lifesavers wintergreen mints on pesach, I dont want to be at work while it’s chol hamoed and i just want to be home making lunch for my kids and taking them out! When will Moshiach come and rescue me from all of this?!

    Agav, you don’t have to be konah the mints if you don’t want to, and they are probably not chometz, just kitniyos.

    I hope they give you off for the rest of Yom Tov.

    And I’m stuck trying to find a place suitable for our whole family… When will I get rescued…

    Could you have taken vacation days during Chol Hamoed?

    She said she had to be at work, even though she didn’t want to.

    I feel mildly better about my non-ownership as the principal came into my office and sat down and took a mint without asking, understanding that they belong to the school and not me, because she would never have taken one otherwise. On the way out she turned to the students and said, “thanks for the mint”.


    Tzadik in Peltz

    Syag Id like you to visit someone that doesn’t have a job this Pesach. Then look yourself in the mirror, Mr. Tzadik.


    Most US jobs only give you 10 vacation days

    between 4 for Peseach, 2 for Shavouth , 2 for Rosh Hashanan, 1 for Yom Kippur and 4 for Sukkoth, thats 13 days. usually you get lucky and some of those days occur on a Shabbos, Sunday (Or Memorial Day for Shavouth). You dont have days left for Chol Hamoed especially if you try to take off for Purim and Tisha B’Av as well

    I’m sorry for being a wet blanket but

    You want moshiach so you don’t have to work on chol hamoed?

    And then people wonder why moshiach hasn’t come yet


    When a person wants something -be it a Shidduch, children, or Parnassah etc….- he needs to do more than just daven or say Tehillim he needs to YEARN for it. Sadly in today’s situation in the world we’re not yearning for the Bais Hamikdosh and Mashiach why should we? We have everything we need from planes to cars and iPhone etc… even the gift of Shabbos which I can use for physical pleasure of sleeping and relaxing. Im sure if your child came to you begging for a bike that you would get it. Why wouldn’t you? The love from a parent to a child is unlimited and this is the way Hashem loves his children k lal Yisroel.

    So when we ALL YEARN and call out from our hearts for Mashiach and a stop to this time of endless tzaros then he will come

    May it happen very soon.

    🍫Syag Lchochma

    thank you all for caring enough about my spiritual health to let me know how wrong i am 🙂

    mr. coffee, i thought you had more depth than that. Did it really sound to you like i want moshiach so i wont have to work on chol hamoed?

    I want moshiach so i can live in a spiritual world filled with emes and Torah where people dont give me mints on pesach and my children dont spend yom tov home alone.

    I want to be at home, building a bayis neeman, spending the chol hamoed days with my children talking about the beauty of having this time to spend with Hashem, working on ridding our souls of chametz and surrounding ourselves in the kedusha of the regel.

    I want to spend chol Hamoed feeling the benefits of having spent weeks (or days) ridding our souls of chametz and praying that the spark is strong enough to carry me through the whole year.

    I want my children to know that a moed is a time to be close to Hashem, not in an office dealing with “stuff” and listening to weekday matters as if it’s any other day or week.

    I want Pesach to fill my mind all day so that I can maximize the lesson it teaches me.

    I am grateful to Hashem for my job and I say so everyday, but there is no substitute for being at home where I believe I belong and I, personally, would love every wife to want to be (tho I have no desire to impose that on anyone). This need to be at work at all, let alone on chol haMoed, is a product of galus and only moshiach can put an end to this and place us all back where we were meant to be.

    (and you didn’t have to be so nasty, either)

    🍫Syag Lchochma

    zdad – so true, but Hashem has blessed me with a wonderful situation. I get 12 days per year and they roll over and i work in a school. My first two years yom tov was weekends and we are closed yom kippur and spring break was pesach and shavuos was memorial day so i took off almost nothing for close to three years. each year spring break accounts for most of pesach except this year when it was a month late.

    This year my daughter had an appendectomy and my son injured his foot so I ended up taking off more days this year than i took off in my last five combined. The problem with taking off this week has to do with legal issues around some meetings that are taking place that i have to attend. As well as the proctoring which happens to be a bigger deal than it sounds.

    If Hashem wants me to work, I am grateful to have this job. That does not change the fact that I would rather be a mom.

    catch yourself

    Gut Moed, everybody

    @CA- in the words of the Rambam,

    ?? ????? ????? ??????? ????? ?????…??? ??? ????? ?????? ????? ????? ????

    I think not going to work on Chol HaMoed is a commendable reason to have a desire for Mashiach, if, as in this case, it is spirituality, not laziness, that is the underlying motivation.

    I expected the same with you

    Moshiach’s agent touched upon it (briefly) the point of moshiach coming is “it will be on that day Hashem’s name will be one” I paraphrased the passuk

    We also know “make your will like His will so that he should make His will like yours”

    Until then, I think we’re going to come up with nothing

    🍫Syag Lchochma

    i dont know what “come up with nothing” means.

    i don’t even know what you think I said that warrents those responses.

    I don’t think Hashem’s will is for women to be in the workplace given the choice. I don’t think Hashem’s will is for Jews to work on Chol Hamoed given the choice. I want to do what Hahem wants. Only Mashiach can bring us all to where we should be. What part of that is a problem?


    “And then people wonder why moshiach hasn’t come yet”

    You want one piece of the puzzle?

    Ask yourself what writing that sentence accomplished in the world.

    And what was the motivation for you to write it.


    And yes. Longing for Moshiach so one can spend Pesach with the family is perhaps quite a desirous thought.

    Rabbi Avigdor Miller, zt’l said more than once that one of the important purposes of Yom Kippur is to teach us how enjoyable it is to eat.

    Maybe you should be more careful when you publicize your judgements of the properness of another Jew’s motivations.

    In the future.

    I hope.

    🍫Syag Lchochma

    why thank you, i was about to assume i was either wrong or crazy. a bit embarrassed either way.


    One should never say “and THIS is why moshiach didn’t come.”

    I’m sorry if it comes out that I am attacking you just when people say I want moshiach because of how it will benefit ME it makes it sound rather shallow, and I hate that

    If that is your intention then yasher koach

    🍫Syag Lchochma

    I appreciate that you hate that, it is very virtuous of you to even care, and I guess i can see how you read that into my first post. but to have continued after my second post just makes no sense.

    Expecting someone to say something shallow is not a good enough reason to comment without actually listening. Unless you see my desire for a closer relationship with Hashem as a shallow request to benefit myself.

    Does “if that is your intention” mean that perhaps i was just making it up and perhaps it isn’t really my intention?

    end of days

    You have to really want it and wait for it everyday and soon b’h this year! AMEN!!!

    ☕️coffee addict


    It means I didn’t see it as your intention but if it was…..

    Additionally, I’m sorry to say but I didn’t read your reply to me so thoroughly because I was too riled up

    I’m sorry

    🍫Syag Lchochma

    well then we’ve both learned something. I appreciate that your “attack” was in Hashem’s defense. I wasn’t assuming that to be the case and Im thrilled.


    Yasher Koach to everyone
