Aww Crap

Well I sent the sentence to Lital.  Good news it was Hebrew letters.  But, it didn't make sense.  Oh well. 

Seriously, I need like a month where I can just focus on learning Hebrew straight with minimal interruptions.  Then I can at least gain enough to hold a basic...kindergarten type of conversation! LOL

iPhone APP

I just got an iPhone app that allows me to type in Hebrew! I just sent a test message to Shawn and if that works I will try to send it to Lital.  That will be very cool..and hopefully a better way for me to learn the language!

It's Sunday and 1 pm

And, I already have my classes DONE!  What a day! 

I even found a theater that was showing Harry Potter early...went there.and nope..they lied! LOL

Now I am cleaning up the house....catching up on things..and in between resting! 

I should have everything uploaded for the aliyah this week.

And speaking of this week it is going to be really weird.  I am going to have a friend stay with me for a bit.  So for the first time in a long time...I will have a guest for a bit.  It will be interesting.

It's Christmas already!

Well if you shop at Sears or KMart!

Starting today..both stores are opening their Christmas departments again!  Can you believe it!!!  It's 112 degrees here and these stores are going to be promoting Christmas stuff.

Yes this means artifical trees, Xmas wreaths, decorations and lights! 

And, instead of getting people credit....since the credit crunch...these stores are promoting Lay-a-way!   That seriously brings back memories of when my mom would go to GEMCO, Target and KMart buy stuff and make regular payments - instead of using credit. 

What is old...is new again!

Aliyah update!!!!

Here is the latest I got from John @ the Jewish Agency:

Got it.

It looks good, but I sent it for review of our eligibility department.

 

I’ll be in touch regarding the answer,.

Please proceed to upload all of your paperwork to the NBN application.

 

Let me know when you have it completed and I’ll take it from there.

_____

Now I have to scan everything that I have from bank statements to the letters of recommendation and upload them to the NBN electronic application that I have.    Then I move to the next step....though I have no idea what that might be.

Another Day in California

Today I get to see my grandmother.  I will show her the letter I got for my aliyah!

I will have dinner with Johnathan...so we can catch up like we do when I come home. 

I will not be able to meet Steve (Fabius).  But, beyond that everything is progressing swimmingly.

I got my two contracts for my new classes!!! That is a bit sigh of relief!  FUN TIMES!!!

Tomorrow we will be heading back home!

Day 1 in California again

Back home..and the weather is LOVELY...G-d I miss that about California!

Got here around 9 pm last night.  Checked my classes and went to sleep around oh....midnight.

Oh...one of the reasons I came to Cali was to get my letter from the mortuary people so I can do the aliyah.  Yeah on the way my sister said to let her call (even though she is going against her word helping me to do the aliyah!).  But she called and the guy had the letter practically READY...so we gave the fax number so he can fax it to my office!  She had it done before we even got to Cali. 

Michelle confirmed today that they got it and she is scanning it and emailing it to me....here at the hotel...so I can forward it along!

__

So today became our free day.  We woke up at about 9:30 am.  And headed out by 11 am for Brunch.  While there we were deciding what to do...I suggested we go to the Kosher market to get grandma some Kosher foods - so we went south to Tustin.  Picked up some Matza, honey, some supplies and decided we were going to rest for a bit....back at the hotel.  Then met up for dinner around 6 pm and then get to their room so we can watch the fireworks display again at Disney this evening (since we were driving to the hotel and missed most of it yesterday).
___

Tomorrow is Disney...my sister and brother in law are heading there.  I don't think I want to spend a hundred dollars + to go to Disney so I will get all my classwork done ahead of time; since Sunday we will be driving back and time will be against me.

___

Saturday and Sunday we will be visiting Grandma, getting and shooting fireworks!!!  Sunday we will be coming back to AZ.

That is the tentative plan.
