7 Quick Takes Friday
- I am absolutely grateful for my family and friends. I am not sure what I’d do without them. I am also very grateful for my blog friends, and I’m sorry if my last post caused any tensions. I am having a very hard time handling even normal, everyday situations right now, and I definitely don’t have an apropriate response for support expressed at this time. I chose to put all the comments into moderation till I can either respond to them or enough time has passed and enough new comments have appeared to not feel like I need to do anything about them. So while they disappeared, they haven’t been deleted.
See, that 6 is 5 of your comments and one by Annie from a while back.
- Harel Skaat is working on a new album.
- This morning I had a visit from my rabbi. I adore that man. He knows full well that both Kevin and I are agnostic/atheist and we mainly attend because of our children, yet he really cares about us and our well being. he made it a point to have breakfast with me at least once every two weeks.
- We had an issue with Kevin’s work hours being cut way way back quite unexpectedly. It turned out that there was simply no way for him to get more hours, but his boss recommended him for a teaching position at an American school’s Israeli campus. He got the job and starts on March 1. This job involves a bit longer commute every day, and sometimes being away overnight, but it has some great perks. One of them is that he will have 3 days off each week (Friday to Sunday).
- The elections are but a few days away and I’m still undecided between Kadima and Meretz. And possibly Labour. Because, unlike the USA, we really have a multi-party democracy, and it means that just voting against who you dislike is not really an option, because there are so many others to vote for. The funny thing is, in the past weeks I remember all of 2 campaigning posts on my FB wall and that was about what that party is going to do, not mud throwing at Likud. Thank you, my Israeli FB friends for being able to handle elections in a lot more elegant and civilised way than what was going on during the autumn, and let’s hope that it stays like that in the next few days.
- I haven’t read at all this week. I made attempts, but never got further than a few lines. Maybe over the weekend I’ll read more.
- Shabbat Shalom.
