Halfway through

...Nablopomo, that is.

I wanted to participate because I was having a tough time being inspired lately and I thought if I was forced to write something every day I would have no choice. Since this is, at its heart, a slice-of-life blog, I would have to look at the mundane things in my life and try to bring it to you in an interesting and entertaining way.

I know that sometimes I hit the mark and many times I don't.

Still, I do think alot about everything I do, see, read, and conversations I have. I wonder if it's something worthy of blogging about. Most stuff I discard. I'd like to say you're getting the best of my life experiences, but really my life is sometimes only interesting to me.

It's ironic. Maybe if I got away more from the computer I'd have more to write about.

In any case, I just wanted to let you know that I'm committed to finishing this. So you've got another 14 posts to slog through before we get to December.

If you'd like you can make suggestions for posts. Don't bother asking me to do a post about how often I change my sheets (already done), my sex life, or [another one] Ozzy. But otherwise, I'm open to suggestions.

And feel free to give me constructive criticism. (But I'd much prefer compliments. I'm a very needy person).

I'll see you tomorrow, whether you like it or not.

Tell us about Modi'in. Where do you shop? They have good restaurants? What's in the mall? What are they building now? Where are the people from, what are their backgrounds?

Photos always welcome.

Congratulations on reaching the halfway point.

How about this - now that you've been here for a few years, what is as you expected? What isn't? What do you still miss or not miss? What nonsense do you still shlep back from the States in your suitcase?

Happy blogging :).

Just wanted to tell you that my kids loved the Ozzy/turtle post- I called them over to show them the pics. I don't know if I should tell them that one of them is no longer....

I would love to hear advice on adjusting to aliyah with kids. We hope to be making aliyah in 2 1/2 years and our kids will be about the same ages as yours...any suggestions?
