The Long and Winding Road

It’s been a long two weeks.

We moved to Ramat Beit Shemesh last week.  The move was typically eventful, as our mover called the morning before our scheduled move and pushed it up a day.  We weren’t ready, but who cared about us, right?  We pulled it off okay, but the trauma is still lingering and I can’t seem to get a coherent word out.

Settling in has been full of tuna, pasta and lots of money disappearing into unnecessary necessities, if you can understand that.  The kids are doing well, all things considered.  The baby decided to break a couple of teeth through at just the best time, and his big sister is proving to me how she cannot survive without school and schedules.

Oh, and we moved on our anniversary, which was fun but not fun and now I’m a little annoyed that after six years of a wonderful life together, we’re still moving as though we’re not happy.

So that’s what’s been going on.

Will be back when we set up our internet and don’t have to steal someone’s from one tiny corner of the house.



  1. I loved Ramat Beit Shemesh. I had a really good friend which used to live there. It was great to be somewhere in Israel where english was heard spoken on the streets:) Anyhow, hope everything there goes great)

  2. This sounds oddly like our last move… right down to moving on our anniversary, which we also did. how interesting.

  3. Hatzlacha!
    Moving cannot be easy. The last time i moved i was 4 so I dont really have any really memories of it. But I imagine its not simple, especially when its a day earlier than you expected! May you have many years of happiness together, regardless of your physical location!

  4. Wow, that sounds overwhelming as is; add on to that the mono and I don’t know how you did it!

    Mazel tov on the move and may you find your place there easily….and create many (only) good memories there.

  5. Mazel Tov on your big move. May you feel settled and at home there real soon!

  6. I remember moving once, and saying that this is something I never want to have to do again. It was a nightmare. I did have to do it again, and it wasn’t half as bad that time. Probably because I was pregnant and so sick the first time. Which makes me wonder how you did it with mono!
