I was worried that since everyone either spoke or understood Hebrew that I'd be left out but I was fine with it. In fact in a conversation circle, when they'd lapse out of English, a few minutes of me smiling and nodding at each speaker I'd get a flurry of unnecessary apologies.

2. Having fun picking out the the 50 or so Hebrew words I do know like numbers 1 to 10, days of the week and greetings.
Anyway, what else happened while I was on my hiatus? Naturally, I did some shopping (bought the bestest and most gorgeousest purse
So that's my life right now. You?
