Kol Hakavod on the whole setting up the Jewish calendar thing! Good work! That kind of stuff always gives me a massive headache - I can barely figure out a tip without having to go lie down - so really, I appreciate your hard work on behalf of our people.
I just have one little gripe. You see, this year, Yom Kippur is essentially the third day of a three day yontov. By which I mean the children have been in the house most of Shabbat, most of today, and will be inside just about all of tomorrow. And I am worrying that I spent all of my Good Children capital on Shabbat, when they played nicely together all afternoon and allowed Donny and me to rest. But, unfortunately, there's not enough time to earn more Good Children points between Shabbat and Yom Kippur. So I worry.
We're trying to do as much coloring/errands/videos today, but let's be honest, the main item on today's agenda is: Kvetch to Mommy. Plus, because of the time change, they've been up since 5:30, so though it is only 10:00, we've already been through two videos, food shopping, and coloring books. Yikes! What will they be like tomorrow at this time? Throwing cars off our mirpeset to see if they can fly? Rolling each other up in toilet paper?
So, please, next time the Sanhedrin convenes, will you please bring this up? I am confident that the creative minds behind "lo adu rosh" and "Adar Sheini" can come up with some workable solution. For now, though, would you mind coming over tomorrow and entertaining my children? I'm sure they'd be up for a couple rounds of "Calculate the Leap Year!" or "Predict The Next Pesach that Falls Out After Tax Season!"
Thanks for your attention to this matter,
Your humble servant,
