It's a busy week at Baila's place. Tomorrow, the owner of the apartment we are renting is taking her furniture. This means I have to pack up my stuff (or throw it all in boxes) so she can move the empty closets, bookcases etc. I've also had to clean out all her appliances as well. And yes, we bought appliances and furniture, which will be coming in scattered deliveries over the next two weeks. Oh joy.
Also tomorrow, my baby sister (who is a completely self-supporting teacher of autistic children but will forever be my baby sister) is coming, probably at the height of the owner's move. (I feel like I have to be here so the movers don't mistakenly take any of my stuff). On Tuesday, Orli is having her adenoids removed. I'm a bit nervous about this. G-d willing that'll be okay.
On Wednesday, I have a doctor's appointment and of course the Blogger's Convention. I plan on bringing my camera, and I was thinking maybe an autograph book. On Thursday I'll be getting ready for Shabbat because Thursday Night we are going (hopefully Orli will be able to, if not everyone else will go and Orli and I will cozy up at home) to Chutzot HaYotzer, the art fair in Jerusalem, and of course out for dinner. On Friday I think we'll go to the stalactite cave near Beit Shemesh, but that will have to be after some dermatology appointments for the kids.
In between all this, I'll be shopping for school clothes, groceries, school books/supplies, as well as cooking, doing laundry (if I get the washing machine), walking the dog, cleaning, baking and of course, my favorite activity of late, blogging.
It's enough to make your head spin, but I always say, it's good to be busy. I'll have plenty of time to rest when I'm dead. Not for a l-o-o-o-ng while, please G-d.
Hopefully, I'll have time to read some of the posts at Haveil Havalim 178--the Tu B'Av Edition. And hopefully you will too.
