Packing is officially in full swing in the Halpern household! It’s pretty daunting to go through all of our possessions, from plates to paper clips, and ask, “Do I think I’ll need this in the next two years? Is this replaceable? Is it cheap? Do I love it enough to bring it? Put it in a box for when we return to America? Give it away? Trash it?”
It’s not a fun job, but at the same time I’m so happy to be having a fresh start. As much as I’ll miss all the people here, I’m looking forward to a new adventure. It sounds trite but it’s true.
That’s all for now, I just wanted to get this blog started so that I can share the address. I quit Facebook a year ago and never looked back, but people kind of expect me to have a good way to communicate with them and share pictures. What a strange request 😉
By the way, the blog title is a quote from Rafi. He tells me he doesn’t like it when I speak Hebrew because “Hebrew is for Israel!”
