The most hard work part was the Progressive Succot extravaganza with our visiting rabbi; I was, jointly with some others, in charge of hosting him and making sure things went smoothly, so I had to be there and alert for every single part of a very packed schedule. It was obviously far worse for him though, and indeed for anyone who's properly frum and has to deal with all this plus all the festival restrictions for three days in a row, three weeks out of four.
It's also been a lot of fun and highly social, so I'm not really complaining. But I have basically had no time at home or online, except what I can steal from sleeping time (as I am doing now). So if you were expecting to hear from me and haven't, that's why. I've barely been fitting work around all this, so the few days I might theoretically have had free evenings I've mostly ended up working late. My conclusion is that I don't know why people refer to "bitter" Cheshvan; right now, nothing sounds more delightful than a whole month free of festivals!
Chag sameach to those who still have the energy for just one more celebration!
