Leaving on a Jet Plane

With mixed feelings, I'm packing up to start the long trip home. Before I leave on one of these intense family visits it takes me about a month to prepare. Then, when I return, it takes about three weeks to settle back into my regular routine. No matter how long I stay away, there's this almost-two-month overhead. I'm grateful that I've been able do it (so far), and that "my people" seemed to be doing OK.

There's a temptation to skip down to Houston and volunteer, but I'm afraid I'd become part of the problem instead of part of the solution.

Now for the big question, to which I already know the answer. Is it still hot in Tel Aviv?

define hot. :) its just starting to get a teeny bit cooler in the evenings, and the days are not quite as humid. You missed the worst of it!

Sounds like the same weather here in Tampa. A hint of cool weather is just beginning; the worst of the summer is behind us. Whew!

Let's get something to drink when you get back - coffee, tea, or a martini - or all of them? I've been living here for almost a year and I am still not settled in - when does that happen exactly? :)

John - Yes, yes, no, (coffee, tea, martini) - martinis make me sick - but scotch, yes (I bought a duty-free bottle). What do you say to a "Tel-Aviv Shopping Excursion/Reception" for Katie-Yael?
