Doing the lemming thing

Rules: Ten honest things about me, then pass it on to seven bloggers.

1. I really hate these things and rarely do them and more often than not don't tag anyone.

2. I have a tattoo on my back.

3. The only reason I'm not wearing jeans any more is because I lost weight and they don't fit. I may buy new jeans when we go to the US.

4. There was a time in my life when I was ready to walk away from my kids and Judaism.

5. I may stop going to the Pirke Avot class because learning Pirke Avot and seeing what is practiced is pissing me off... at the Rabbis and so-called 'gedolim' who are allowing fanaticism to rule.

6. I knew from the moment I saw my husband he was the one for me.

7. My Aliyah was not really my choice. I was passive-aggressive about the whole thing and spent a miserable first 3 years here.

8. Making Aliyah has made me more spiritual.

9. I have very low self-esteem.

10. My father was at Woodstock.

I hope you're not angry with me!

I didn't do one, even though ALN tagged me. But I appreciate the honesty in yours.

I'd like to hear more about how you have worked to boost your self-esteem. Or how you might work to boost your self-esteem.

I try to hang around with rabbis that don't piss me off. I've experienced the ones that do, yes, indeed. I think the last maddening statement was from some idiot of a Rav who had no idea how bad post-partum depression could be and how a woman could be suicidal as a result. Why is this man in control of a woman's life?
