242 Pool, tonsillitis and Tipat chalav

May 4, 2009

Last Thursday we brought the kids to the pool – the first time ever. The kids’ pool was too cold so we couldn’t use it.. so we had no other choice but being in the big pool with them. It turned out being a very good day. Almost no people there – only us and a few others.
When we went there we had no idea what the kids’ reactions on the deep water would be but we ended up having a very good day – all kids were brave and had fun!! Our three-year-old was like a dolphin in the water. I think she will learn to swim early.

I also had the opportunity to go to Jerusalem for some shopping with my friend.. Now she’s gone for a few days but will come back for a long  weekend before she’s going back to Sweden.

Today I went to the doctor.. yep – now my turn to have tonsillitis. Though I’m not even half as miserable as dude was when he had it 😉 Though I’ve got to admit it would have been nice to be able to rest a little bit more. Now.. that’s what evenings are for.. right?

I also went with the baby to Tipat Chalav for the 18months checkup- I don’t know how to translate that.. it’s where you go now and then with the baby for vaccinations, and for checking how the baby is growing, development etc..
Turns out she gained more than 2 kilos (4 lbs) since the last time (half a year ago) and for the first time ever the nurse was content. She also got the hepatitis A vaccination. We are going back on Thursday to see the tipat chalav doctor to check the development etc.

Well.. that’s it for now.


¤23 It has been a while – again

July 21, 2008

I thought I had written at least one post after we moved – but appearently I was wrong. There’s just a lot happening all the time and it is not my highest priority to keep the blog updated.. or I have another blog that I actually do update – but that one is in Swedish, and it is locked with a password. Since I have more fans there, and since I’m more free to add pictures and write more personal stuff because of the password – I tend to write there more frequently.


We moved… took a lots of time to get everything organized. We got the key like four days before the moving day.. and we found the apartment all dirty, and full of trash and broken furniture, and also the garden full of crap to take away.. which we didn’t even finished with. We had to take everything out and start cleaning and painting.. managed to paint half before we moved in.. and now it is really nice. The kid’s room is the best.. a very bright green.. =) 
And we are gonna paint the rest some time.

Hubby didn’t have much time to help.. he was busy studying for his tests. I don’t blame him for that. He is working full time + studying full time.

But we like the house and we are slowly slowly getting organized. We unpacked almost everything by now and it’s a great place to live. The kids are happy too.. riding the scooters(kick bike..) they got from my parents as an early birthday present a few days ago. We also have a little pool that they use every day. The just love it! It is nice to see them so happy!!

Life is going on just like before.. a lot to do with the kids all the time. The baby is already almost nine months by now, and screaming your ears off if you don’t let her be on the floor.. and if you put her on the floor you have to watch her all the time. She’s already walking if she is holding a couch or a table or something.. We call her “the little rocket” because of her speed.

Hmm.. I’m gonna add the pictures of the last two birthday cakes also. The cow cake we had when celebrating Efraim’s and my mom’s birthdays in advance a few days ago, and the frog cake Efraim brought to kindergarten to share with his friends when celebrating his birthday in advance there.. since there is no kindergarten in July and August – and his birthday is in August.

I hope I’ll be back sooner this time..

Have a good day!


¤17 Moving Out

May 21, 2008

Today our landlord told us that he has sold the apartment and that we have to move out before July 31st. He promised us to give us 4 months to find something else.. but that appearently wasn’t true. We get 2 months only! And since our contract will expire at June 30th, we have nothing to say about it..

We’ll just have to accept the situation and start looking for a new place.. wich is not so easy since there is a lack of apartments here..

Anyway.. I’m dreaming of a house with four or five rooms.. and a little garden where the children can play.. where they can have little pool in the summer.. That would be like a paradise for us. Where we live now is an old apartment at the third floor, no elevator.. and only a tiny little balcony for laundry.
