7 days

You never change.
When I was younger I used to think that something happened after 30, that I was going to change, become more mature without any effort...
Almost 3 weeks of holidays without a hebrew lesson, here we are, two hours before leaving, doing our homework in the last minute, just as if we where 16 again...
The reason why we haven't done our homework has changed though, We didn't spend the days having coffee with friends or the evenings drinking Gin tonic in trendy bars...it's been more like cooking, cleaning and admiring sheep.
We're leaving for Israel in a week, "Yad2" is empty, no appartements in Poleg at all, not even one without a balcony...
I feel like I'm carrying a huge stone in my stomach.
Actually I emptied my head of all stress in Auvergne, back to normal all worries are invading me again and I feel exhausted.
I keep repeating that I'm not leaving Israel without an apartement to rent and my husband keeps on saying - yes darling, of course darling...just a matter of time before he'll tell me to shut up...

Are you still contemplating Raanana?
Hope everything goes for the best when you are in Israel next week.

yes we are, it looks like a very nice place to stay in, all articles on google I have found are poitive about everything concerning the city; schools, parks, public service! The appartement the the French girl spoke about wasn't that expensive, I hope I didn't missunderstand the price. I'll bring my computer and keep you updated...

Why not Rehovot? Our new neighbourhood is wonderful!!

Btw, we are thinking about cocktails on my balcony one evening when you are here (don't have any balcony furnitures yet but who, except for the pregnant woman, will care about that after a drink or two?!). Looking forward to see you.

And, it will be ok, you'll find something, I'm sure!

karin, really, don't worry about the chairs, I can stand on one leg with a mojito, I'll show you!
Maybe we will love rehovot, right now I feel I don't crae where we're going as long as I have a school nearby with a fiveroom appartement and a balcony. My son said the other day; mum, the most important thing isn't where we're going but that we're going! He is 7, I should listen to him more often...

Haha, I'm looking forward to see you standing on one leg with a mojito in your hand!!

Sounds like you have a bit to learn from your son.
