I want to go on record and say I am excited. I am excited to drink Fresca and diet Dr. Pepper. I am excited for Mitchell’s ice cream (colorful dinosaur sprinkles? genius!). I am excited for the Beechwood Public Library. I am excited to see my friends and family. I am excited (if we can translate excited as super nervous) to send Yael and Yoni off to Camp Stone. I am excited.
But I have spent the past two weeks saying goodbye. I drank a lot of ice coffee, picked at a lot of salads, ordered a lot of chicken and smiled as I said goodbye to my friends from around the country. My oldest friends, my cool youngen friends from Jerusalem, people who have graced my world for decades. And I’ve mostly held it together (oh, Rachie T, you’re the exception to the rule).
I know it’s only a year but I think I am only so so sad because the adventure makes me leave behind this wonderful vibrant loving life that David and I have worked so hard to create. So dear other side of the ocean, please go easy on us. I’m feeling particularly sad right now. And to my loving wonderful Alon Shevut ladies who have packed up my kitchen, raided my cupboards, not judged me too harshly for the 3 containers of expired Bulgarian cheese and helped me toss out years of languishing craft projects, I love you all so very very much. Don’t watch too much good TV without me.
