Back at home I ate some breakfast. Then Z and I took the car to the garage for its yearly tuneup. Apparently the air conditioning (not working) situation was just repeated to totally clogged up filters - something to do with driving through a hundred and seven sand/dust-storms in the last ten months. The mechanic said it would take about three hours for the 'tipul' to be done, so we walked over to the mall. We proceeded to spend the next 2.5 hours sitting in the food court. We enjoyed the free wifi and air-conditioning, Z got some lunch while I noshed on gluten-free pretzels, and every once in a while I'd do a full circuit of the mall just to rack up steps on my Fitbit.
The car was ready to pickup half an hour before gan pickup time. We wasted ten minutes picking up a box of cereal for me at the grocery store, then we picked Buzz up from gan. Buzz was extremely excited about the new house. He wouldn't stop talking about it. In fact, he begged us to go and visit the site. Z couldn't say no. (Or, wouldn't). After a quick stop at home (so that I could make and eat a scrambled egg on a square of rye matzah) we 'spur of the moment(oy)' drove out to the yishuv. The weather was cooling down, the house is beautiful, and I almost never wanted to leave. If the place weren't full of construction dust, I would just take a sleeping bag and go stay there! So few days left - the suspense is making me craaaazy! I'm ready!!!!
At some point Buzz showed up with a stethoscope and announced that it was time for my checkup. He promptly pulled out a toy saw and started cutting my arm off. After checking me over one last time with his stethoscope he proclaimed me 'healthy!' And demanded monetary compensation for his efforts. (Clearly he's learning how the world works.)
Hard to believe that tomorrow is Thursday again. Do I seriously need to start thinking about what to make for shabbos already? I'm pretty sure I'm still full from last weekend!
