No, not the phone, because at this point we have 7 telephone lines in the house, 5 of which we use often (unbelievable, huh?) Me. I'm too busy and I still feel like I'm not getting anything done.
Today is Hadas's test for the Israeli Arts & Science Academy (goes 10th - 12th grade). She's been doing psychometric tests in preparation for the past few weeks and, though she was stressed this morning, I think she'll do pretty well & probably has a fair chance of being accepted. Ohad drove her there (to Jerusalem) this morning and is staying with her until 3, which means I have to pick up the little girls from 2 different places at about the same time (well, within 10 minutes of each other & they're in places that are about 7 minutes apart, so it's kind of pushing it). On Fridays they have special ceremonies that the girls don't want to miss, so I can't really pick either one up early.
I still haven't decided about packing the bag. Maybe I'll just choose the bag this coming week & start packing it next week?
I might have mentioned that I'm not terribly large this pregnancy (and the only ones who might say I'm lying are Kirby and my sister...) anyway, 2 days ago I went to buy a jumprope for Lilach, but it looked too long. The lady in the store suggested I try it. I gave her the weirdest look, like, "are you totally and completely out of your mind?" Did she really not notice? Is that a good thing?
And finally, some pictures...
Hadas before her test this morning (and yes, she would kill me if she knew what picture I am posting, but fortunately, she's too lazy to read my blog).

Nomi & Abigail eating breakfast in their pajamas.
And last, a picture of me at the end of the day - waiting for the house to be quiet again so that I can... start working again :-(
