We spent a day at IKEA. Then the next day Z and Buzz road-tripped to Netanya to pick up a second-hand bedframe that we decided to buy for ourselves. It came with two little night tables for less than buying the set brand new at IKEA. However, by the time they packed the bed into the car they were hungry, so they went to explore the IKEA in Netanya. (Buzz is now convinced that IKEAs are as commonplace as 7-11's or Dunkin Donuts in America. He was also a VERY happy child after spending two days wandering around IKEA-land.)
On Saturday night, Z spent 5 hours finishing up the packing. By the time he stumbled to bed, after 2am, I wasn't sure he'd wake up in time for the movers.
I spent Monday mentally recovering from the trauma of Sunday. Z and Buzz spent Monday organizing things at the house.
The Parentals came down to drop off the last of our things from the apartment. They had to dash after a short-while, but we stuck around. It was 2:15 and we were hungry. We decided to attempt to find the makolet on the yishuv. It took us longer than expected, but we pulled up in front of the little co-op shop at 2:20. It was good timing, since they close from 2:30 to 6:30. We picked up some eggs, potatoes, and chocolate pudding. Back at the house, we hooked up the electric stovetop (that we borrowed from The FamBily House), and I made our first meal in the house. Scrambled eggs and jumbo potato latka - seemed a fitting meal - since we make it so often.
This morning we were up bright and early - our plan today was to accomplish things in The Sun House. For a number reasons unknown to us - the kablan didn't end up pouring the concrete of our driveway today. (That was the ONLY reason we planned to do lots of things around The Sun House instead of organizing more things at the house.)
We decided to make the best of the situation anyway.
First Z changed the addresses in our Teudot Zehut to reflect the new house! Then we had OT for Buzz at Neimi. After OT Buzz led us to a new bakery and asked for a chocolate pastry. Our next stop was the 'kol-bo' shop - we needed a new dryer hose and some other miscellaneous things. Then we were off to RBS. Buzz lucked into a slice of pizza with olives for lunch while Z bought a mattress for Buzz's bed. (Now we can finally put the mattress back onto the guest bed and host sleepover guests again!)
After that adventure we made our way back to The FamBily House.
We didn't let the situation keep us down. We made a course-correction to our plans and decided to go play at the mall instead. A lot of 'steps' later the mall had been walked and we were exhausted. One car went to the grocery store while the other car went back to The House.
Frank and I did a 'late night dash' to the grocery store. The Crazy Lady was running low on oil and well, anytime is a good time to buy ice cream! After a deep-fried-late-night-bonanza it was bedtime.
