Always busy & pics

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).

(left to right) Matan, Abigail & Lilach. Matan and Lilach are my IVF-FET twins.

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 :-(

Hee hee! You are not that big. In fact, rather petite. It just looks like you swallowed a soccer ball.

And let's just remember, I'm not the one that called you a hippo. :)

Hey Rach, you told me to pack my bag 1 month before the baby was due. So go on, pack up!

Ah, trilcat, but there's a difference between little sisters having their first baby and people like me who know what a long, long, everlasting 9th month is (that goes deep into the 10th month).

See my next post for more info.

P.S. Love the pics! And you look great, too.

The little ones are adorable! Hope your daughter does well on her test - she looked nervous.
