They're just jealous.
(At first I thought they all sounded alike. They were pretty insulted at that. Now I pretty much can identify the different accents.)
And by the way, the Brits still are carrying a grudge that we have our independence. I believe they still refer to the American Revolution as the Great Catastrophe over there across the pond.
Anyhoo, the point of this post is my lay-in (if you are British, please tell me how you spell that). In America we call that "sleeping in" or "sleeping late". Today is the first day of the "Chofesh HaGadol" [big vacation], and the summer stretches out before us. I am very afraid. In America, the kids have a few days between camp and school and then are off, either to sleep away camp or day camp, which means they are occupied from 8 AM to 4:30 PM. I went to work, ran errands, and when they came home we went to the pool until it was time for dinner and bed. Over here, they are to old for the day camps. Orli will be going away for two weeks, but Tali opted not to go. For the first few weeks we will keep busy with Mazi (more on that another time), but still, I am very afraid of the hours that are unplanned.
In any case, everyone (except Isaac) is having a lay-in today. I am always an early riser so I slept 'til 7, which for me is late.
I'm going to make my list of things to accomplish today, and go do them...
Hoping we all have a wonderful summer!
