Back to Work

traintalk's wife again.
Well as you will have gathered traintalk, myself and our kids moved to the Holy City. We are very fortunate in that we have an empty apartment to ourselves. Empty is the operative word - mattresses on the floor a garden table and chairs and the essential electric stuff. No television, no computer.
Today I decided to travel to Tel Aviv where I work. I decided it was time to do something "normal". It was fine in theory. I almost threw up on the way. Guess my nerves are more shattered than I thought. Maybe, it was hearing about the bedroom windows.
Our daughter has gone down south today for a meeting about her national service next year. So as well as worrying about friends at home and katyushas I can also worry about her and kassamim.
It's been a strange week. We are in Jerusalem but don't feel like doing anything. We've been out to buy the things we need but aren't in the mood for sight seeing. It's like being in a different world. I feel like I am walking around in a fog a bit like a zombie. I keep feeling like I am going to start crying. I feel safer in Jerusalem but feel guilty for having run away. I am supposed to be going to England in a couple of weeks to visit my parents. They are both in their late 80s and not in the best of health. I am beginning to feel guilty about that as well.
I guess I am not too coherent today but then I think that is just a refelction of the way things are.
May G. protect our soldiers and bring an end to our present war.

Two people were moderately-seriously wounded when rockets struck the Ma'alot area late Monday afternoon.

The two were taken to the hospital in Nahariya for treatment, where another three people were being treated for light wounds.

i dont think its running away, there is no sense in putting your selves at risk, the trip might help put ur parents mind at ease as well as mine.
