Thank you so much to all who wrote with words of prayer, support and encouragement. By this time tomorrow, I will be waiting at Ben Gurion Airport to board my flight to New York. I will be worried, nervous, sad and irritated. I really hate not being allowed to knit when I want to! I need to find a tee shirt that says, "I'd rather be knitting" to wear on flights. I don't know what airline Stephanie flies, but as far as I know, I am not allowed to bring my knitting on the airlines I use (see her entry for August 4th; there's no permalink to the post).
If I let myself, I get very twitchy and anxious, what with all this worry and waiting. It will be a relief to actually be on my way, but for now I am trying to keep busy. Avi and I got the carpet out of most of the master bedroom yesterday and the day before. There's just a tiny walk-in closet left to do.
Today, I took things easy, doing laundry and packing. I spent a lot of time browsing blogs, and had quite a pleasant visit at Ivory Blush Roses.
Tomorrow, I'll finish up the packing and do more (a lot more) laundry, some ironing, change the sheets and do anything else I can think of (and have time for) that will help the coming week pass by smoothly for my dear ones while I am away.
And may the coming week be a smooth one - and a good one - for all of you.
