I’ve still got way too much stuff and Hamas announced in Arabic they’ll start shelling us tomorrow at 8
I’m feeling really overwhelmed with all my crap. Even before I moved to this apartment almost 4 years ago I got rid of boxes and boxes of books but I’ve still got enough to run my own private library. I’ve still got about 6 boxes I packed up last summer of books to unpack and sort through so that the movers can pack into their boxes. I’m getting rid of all my books in English except for those that are out of print or really expensive or that I wrote or have articles in (heh). That still leaves me with what will come out to be about 15 boxes of books in Hebrew and German. Gah. The paperwork is what is killing me though. Going through files and piles of paperwork and trying to figure out if I need it or might need it or can recycle it. I’m so tired of my apartment just being piles of things and cartons of things and even more tired of it not all being in (sorted) piles and cartons. It feels like it will never be done and the movers come in like 12 days.
I’ve an exam to give tomorrow morning at 9 and there’s a good chance the sirens will be going off if not where I am then down south. Hamas made an announcement in Arabic that they intend to start shelling us again tomorrow. They’ve not made the announcement in English yet but it seems they are essentially refusing to meet any reasonable conditions (surprise!) at the talks in Egypt. Egypt is dead fed up with them and the Palestinian Authority is threatening to leave the talks if Hamas won’t show ‘flexibility.’ Pretty much, expect the war to be back on in the morning.
