Happy New Week!

My other husband, Mr.Rogen

The only way to start the week: Seth Rogen’s silly face and this song!

Well we didn’t get any of the snow that Jerusalem saw this weekend, and the sun’s back out in Hertzliya so it looks like Winter’s on the way out! Here’s hoping my cold/cough will follow suit.

This morning the radio introduced me to Family of The Year, an awesome band, with this gorgeous song ‘Hero’ on my way to the train station. Then reading the morning news, I felt so uplifted by this event that took place in Oslo this past Friday night – the true meaning of shabbat shel shalom.  Reading this other news story about a birthday party for a little boy with autism that nobody came to, my ears filled with tears as I read what happened instead. My conclusion after reading these two articles is that people can be good, even when other people are being terrible. And loads of other stuff.

Have a great week! x

This Year I Want To….

1 Jan

May your year be glittery and bright!

Blog more, love more, laugh more, do more! Last year was the year of adjustment, becoming a working parent was tough. It took all of my energy up, and I let myself get a bit lazy. I hardly took up any new hobbies or projects. DesignMom writes that resolutions for her are just a fun list of goals to help her focus on the upcoming year, but she doesn’t put pressure on herself to keep them! I like that.  In that spirit, I have borrowed both her attitude and her family’s resolution mantra:

This year, I want to… 

  • Learn: Yiddish, and how to use my Kettle Bells properly.
  • Read: As much as possible!
  • Make: every recipe from a Hummingbird Bakery cookbook (excluding the non-kosher ‘ham + everything’ muffins) per my LLL.
  • Visit: Holland, or Norway.
  • Change: misconceptions about religious people in Israel, but that’ll take some time. This year I think I might change my dentist. 
  • Be better at: Friendships. Am going to work on becoming better friends with my friends. Look out, folks! Most of all I want: peace across our region, a foreign vacation and another baby please! Did I go too far? #dammit.

Super Fun Countdown

Pregnancy calendar: 32 weeks!

Boys come in all shades of blue. And green, and purple and yellow and orange....

Boys come in all shades… but not just of blue!

Woah. Just six weeks left until I am finished with work for a good few months, and can properly concentrate on preparing our home, my body and mind – not to mention our bank account – for the arrival of #minimazor. Oh gosh. Time has flown. It still might be 10 weeks until the little guy arrives PG, but the excitement / trepidation has begun. I can’t wait for the day I can walk out of this office and switch into mama-mode! In the spirit of countdowns and things, I’ve compiled a list of things I need to do before the baby arrives.  These are things I have been told WILL NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN (ok really, never?) once the baby arrives Continue reading
