Is Planning A Bar Mitzvah Like Becoming A Drug Addict?

I am the girl who just showed up to my wedding.  The one decision I had to make, my wedding dress, I messed up, and looked like Nancy Kerrigan from the 94 Winter Olympics.

So you can imagine my trepidation in having to plan my son?s Bar Mitzvah.  I tried to pretend I was all Jewish like Madonna and Demi Moore and declared to my husband that I wanted to go to Israel.  ?That?s what real Jews do,? I say, ?to really find meaning in becoming a Bar Mitzvah. ? Scott saw right through me and he knew that I wanted to avoid the planning of the party.

We agreed we would have a traditional service and night party.  Okay, I can do this.  I am not going to get out of control.  I will keep things in check.  I saw that hilarious cartoon about how crazy we can get with the planning.
