In aliyah specific news... well NBN is on break for pesach, so still waiting there... but I am hosting interviews for people to take my job for next year... which helps add that level of "oh wow, this is... real". People keep asking me where I am going, and when I say Israel... well peoples reactions are always interesting. I seem to be saved some of the "youre completely crazy" because my husband is Israeli... which apparently makes me only partially crazy. still, the first reaction is almost always "the war zone?" "like with bombs?" "whyy?????". its hard to explain still, and I often feel like no matter how I try to explain it, people dont want to listen. it MUST be crazy, because they think it is. I wonder if I would get similar reactions moving to Ethiopia or Sudan or somewhere.
still, just chugging through the weeks, waiting for some real physical news from NBN (like an official plane date? my visa?). I guess it will all have to wait until after the holidays. luckily weve got a steady stream of visitors for the next month and a half, and then baby at some point, BH... so i guess I should enjoy this down time
