choice. I didn't expect
to feel this way since
the decision not to affiliate
with a synagogue this year
was made very deliberately.
It occurred about a year ago,
after reading an article about
a woman who chose to slow
things down and take some of
the hectic out of daily living.
Her situation rang true, and
I realized we needed to do
something similar. Life with
three young sons is wild by
definition. It became in-
describable (especially on
weekends) with all the extras;
soccer and basketball, art and
gymnastics, religious school
and birthday parties and
swimming and .. .
The overwhelming schedule
and the fact that all three
children were about to enter
new schools drove us to put ,
our new strategy into action.
We cut out almost every "ex-

family activity, and surpris-
ingly, none of us missed that,
either. The family reveled in
doing mostly nothing
together.
The decision seemed sound.
During the year, the
youngest attended a Jewish
Mothers-Day-Out program. I
had no twinges when he came
home full of Succot, or Tu
b'Shevat. Chanukah fell, very
conveniently, on school holi-
day. We were together with
far-flung family and that was
comfortable, too.
But then, of all things,
