Recovering from the flu; was home sick Mon, Tues & Wed from work. yuck!
But here’s a story for ya:
So on Wednesday I was feeling better and was gaining my strength back and decided to shower, reasonable right? I felt so gross from being bedridden and just was craving a hot shower!! So I turn on the hot water heater (you have to do that here in Israel) and I needed to wait like 30 minutes, so I’m watching Oprah and then Ellen comes on and I ALWAYS watch Ellen, but the shower was more important at this point, so I head to the bathtub…in our bathroom we have a shower and bathtub with like a water handle thing so you can shower in there too. I always use the bathtub because its more spacious and open and whatever. But there’s this little step in the bathtub and since we moved in in March we’ve been talking about putting something down on the floor of the bathtub because its REALLY slippery, but just haven’t gotten around to buying anything for it! (maybe you can see where this story is going..ha) So, I’m smiling, like singing to myself because the Ellen song came on and I’m stepping in the bathtub and like literally 5 seconds upon entering, after turning the hot water on, I step on that damn step in the bathtub and fall so awkwardly on my face. On my nose to be exact. Like on the back part of the bathtub. I got up all discombobulated and disoriented and turned the water off and realized that blood was gushing down my body from my face and stepped out and couldn’t feel my nose. To say the least I was FREAKING OUT. freaking out! The pain set in and I was screaming and crying running around the house (I was home alone- Dekel went to get his hair cut) I grabbed a towel and just held it to my face, scared to examine what was underneath- I thought I broke my nose, you guys. I pick up the phone trembling trying frantically to find his number which took like an hour it felt like, I call Dekel and he calms me down saying he will rush home, but he told me to just sit down and stuff some toilet paper up there to soak blood. He was a medic in the army so he knows what to do and is calm in these situations, unlike me. So, I’m sitting, sobbing, on the couch, shaking, still thinking I broke my nose because I couldn’t feel it or move it and my face was just in pain and I’m just trying to rethink how the hell this happened and how badly I just wanted to shower. Now sitting there nasty and bloody. He arrived like 20 minutes later and cleaned me up and told me it was definitely not broken. (thankgoodness!) So, that’s my story- I can’t tell you all in person so I hope you can hear me telling this story. I’m laughing about it now, but it hurt soooo bad! I was a sad story.
Anyways, it’s the weekend! I wanna know whats going on in your lives!! What are you doing this weekend in America???
Heather came and gone and it was an amazing time. We traveled from the most northern point in Israel to the most southern tip and all in between. We left no ground uncovered it felt like, hit up every view point, bar, restaurant, beach…
Those 3 and a half weeks will be vivid in my memory forever. There are over like 2,000 pictures and 10 hours of video footage to remind me of the good times as well. We were really on our shit.
So- back to reality. I am going Friday with dad to check out Kibbutz Yagur and it’s Ulpan program, which I am enrolled in and expected to begin in a couple of weeks. Around the 21st I believe. I will continue to study Hebrew and work on the kibbutz and live that life which I am not thrilled about, but learning more Hebrew is just what I need to do if I intend on staying and working later on in this country. Having a hard time with the job search, I know I shouldn’t be so picky, but I want so many different things. I want to work in media, then the next day I want to bartend and work in promotions, then again I want to be a flight attendant…jeez.
Ben arrives the 19th and I am so excited to see his face and squeeze the living hell out of him! I have missed that boy like crazy, just not the same without him around…Mirelle and I are missing our guy. Going to be great when he is here, will do a lot of things with the family Im sure, travel around. A trip to Eilat is in the works and I believe we are going from July 26th- Aug 2nd or something like that. Went to IKEA with dad and Simi yesterday to purchase a futon bed for the bomb shelter (that’s the only room in the house left!!) and we got pillows and shelves, transforming the girls play room into a guest room I guess. Good move in my opinion.
Still seeing Dekel. My mind is exhausted from wondering what will come of us. It’s such an easy relationship, we like each other, see each other, are honest and open about everything…everything is great. But. But do I want to get serious? What does that even mean? I can’t deny my feelings, but for some reason it’s obvious that I am trying to mask them and its so weird. I like him so much, think about him everyday, but don’t want to get in too deep. He knows this and says that I should just go with the flow and let things evolve, play out how they are supposed to..but it’s too hard for me to sit back and watch myself get wrapped up. What’s wrong with me? I hear myself giving excuse after excuse for why I don’t want to take the next step in our relationship, but its all bullshit. I need to let go.
