...to see how I'm going to celebrate the second anniversary of my first post to this blog. I'll tell you one thing, I'm not going to ruminate about blogging, since I just did that in my last post. I will say that I can't believe it's been two years! Where does the time go??? [to be read with my mother's intonation].
Instead of bringing you my favorite or most popular posts, I'd thought I'd turn things around a bit, and present you with my least favorite posts.
Actually, I changed my mind. I don't want to choose my least favorite posts. Their all my babies, even the bad ones [**gag**].
Instead, in honor of the occasion, I've decided to revamp my blogroll a bit, by creating a separate category for Modi'in bloggers. Of late, I've noticed there are a bunch of us and I've been poking around these blogs. One of them, Emah S. of Moving On Up has been on the blogroll for quite a while, but now I'm moving her to the new category (although Emah seems to have stopped blogging since she had her baby). All of these bloggers are olim (immigrants) like myself, but are different ages, from different places and each has their own unique perspective of what life in Modi'in is (or in the case of One Tired Ema, will be) like. I'd like to give a special mention to Aliyah-by-Accident. Her posts make me laugh out loud--we seem to have the same sense of humor. She is thinking of writing a parenting book called, "Don't bother me, I'm reading"--my book was going to be called, "Don't bother me, I'm on the computer". For making me laugh so often, ABA, I'm giving you a special award:
I'm also adding some blogs I check frequently, including Robin of Around the Island, Mrs. S. of Our Shiputzim, Hadassah of In the Pink, and A Living Nadneyda. Now I no longer have visit you guys through Leora or Ilana-Davita.
There, don't you think that's an appropriate way to celebrate this special occasion?
Thanks to everyone enquiring about my nephew and for all your thoughts and prayers. It turns out that Gavi had the dreaded Swine Flu and it lead to viral meningitis. He is getting back to himself now, and with G-d's help will be released from the hospital within a few days.
Shabbat Shalom and a great weekend to all.
