New Israeli Friends

Via Israelicool I found a link to a new Israeli blogger her name is Miryam Elisheva Bat Rachel but goes by Mish.  She is 28 years old and she has Leukemia - that's how I found out about her blog from Israelicool - when they asked for prayers. 

Since I started visitng her blog we have exchanged some emails.   Usually when its very early in the morning in Jerusalem (early evening here).  Until the vampires start to need their rounds of blood (as she calls the doctors and nurses).

It's always great to have more friends.

Feel free to visit the blog and say Hi to her.  Click here.

WOW

It's been a week already!

Sorry bout that. between work, school and NR - been totally swamped and this was my busy week with classes - I had papers for 175 students to grade.  And I had my nephew over for most of the week. 

Saturday my brother in law and Justin installed garage shelves!!! THEY LOOK AMAZING!!!  I am so happy now I have to go to Costco and stock them full!

Hopefully this week I will pick up the blogging...since I now have two more parts of the Nefesh B'Nefesh application done (Referrals and my financial affidavit).

This just means my birth certificate and proof of Judaism.  I am almost thinking another trip to Cali might be in order!

Bad news / Good news

Don't you just love how things come like that?

On Saturday - I had to get blood work - still feel somewhat broken from the initial major panic attack.  I get jumpy and worry.  Still havent settled down.   So, I had to get blood work then I have a sleep study in a couple of weeks for my Sleep apnea. Then I get a trip to the cardiologist.  They want to check out my ticker.  Good - I am a bit worried but nothing major.

Then on Saturday I did my taxes.  I PRAYED that I would owe less than 2k.  I hoped it would be around 1500 but I figured it would be more.

Here are the results:

To do taxes - 300
Fed tax - 1124
AZ state - 200 REFUND

So - to say the least I am very pleased!!

Now the real good news - Today I just got offered to teach 4 more classes!!! WHOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Talk with Adi!

YEAH!! I had a nice talk with Adi - the longest I think we have had since the vacation!   She also sent me her letter of recommendation!!!!

It was great to speak to her again!  I almost think she was kinda feeling me out if I was serious in my desire to make the aliyah.  Since it is a huge risk. 

Well - that's about it for now!

Umm....Life?

It's been a slow time on the blog recently.  I seem to go through spurts of activity and then a lull in activity.  It certainly not because there isnt much to write about.  I think the issue of lack of time is the core reason.

Currently teaching 6 classes - just finished another 2 - which made it 8 classes for almost two weeks along with the day job makes it hard to get things done.

On top of this it is almost April 15th - the day of dread.....the day the government takes another pound of flesh from me.  UGH.  Oh well...once I get that over with I can rest with a bit of ease and relief!  Then I can refocus on the aliyah...which has taken a back step (though related) to this tax process - I say related since part of the financial affidavit is the requirement of my taxes.  So Yippee!

I just need Adi's letter of recommendation and Michelle's and I will have that part nailed down too! 

I paid my tax in NR too.  (along with some other Cornelians). Ugh I just hate tax season all together!

A Hebrew Lesson

I was sick at home today.  So in between naps and such..I found this show on Sundance Channel - A  Hebrew lesson...its the story of 5 people making the aliyah to Israel!  Basically what they go through - and its a series!!!  I dont know when the next one is on - but this one covered 6 months and they were in Tel Aviv..at the Ulpan Gordon!

It is very cool...and a small taste of what I will be going through!  If you have a chance....see this series!
