Okay, how about I hit a marathon and I'm happy until next time you come home (12 days)?
I need to be happy now for 12 days straight.
Saturday night seemed a hard battle, but I made it.
Sunday as well.
Monday, too (today).
I'm doing well, I think I'll make it.
on Saturday night when I drove back from driving Gil, I sang
משנכנס אדר מרבים בשמחה
the whole ride, loudly, happily.
It was so great to realize on Shabbat that actually these 12 days are starting together with Adar which is meaningful. Even more of an obligation to be happy.
