There’s an episode of “House” that Jeremy and I watched recently. In it, a doctor on House’s team is trying to thank him. When he avoids her, she says to him, “Do you know why people pray? Do you think they pray to him and praise him because they want him to know how great he is? God already knows that.” House responds, in his usual House-y way, “Are you comparing me to God?” She then explains, “I thank you because it means something to me. To be grateful for what I receive.”
Ninety-eight percent of the time Simi Lichtman is blissfully happy to be married, like she’s walking on clouds. But there’s still that other 2%.
When Simi and Jeremy were in college, they could stay out all night. But now that they’re married, together at home is where they want to be.
Blogging about her first year of marriage, or shana rishona, was a no-brainer for Simi Lichtman. Luckily, her new husband has a thick skin.
