Proud Daughter In-Law

Well, a few weeks ago, I wrote about my thoughts on my father-in-law after celebrating his 50th birth-day. I mentioned that he was up for Officer of the Year. Well, he got it. Officially, it's called Katzeen Mitztayen Ramat Kall. Only about 10 officers in the whole country win this award every year, and for the most part, they're all Generals. He's a Major. So, this is a big deal. I am so proud of him. He has definitely earned this award. He thinks it's definitely due to his work in the Hitnatkut this past summer. Let's just say that it's because of his immense hard work and planning that there was basically no violence as the settlements were evacuated. It wasn't fun, but he was extremely proud of what he did because no-one got hurt, and no-one got killed, and both could have very easily happened (ala Amona) had his plans either not been carried out or successful. I am very proud of him and so happy to be part of his family.

P.S. I'm sorry for all of you living in Galut (The Diaspora), who have to suffer through another Seder and a 3 day Yom Tov. When will you understand that this your punishment for not living in Israel and finally move over here? HAHAHA!!!!

it is funny since last august I did a blog about the Gaza withdrawal.

As I have done lately I did try to portray the way palestinians lived the event and the way Israelis lived the same event.
The blog is huge. It does have many pictures, most about the disengagement from Gaza

Check it out.

Yeah, we were watching it. They made it very exciting at the end there. Thanks for the Kudos. It's warmly welcomed.

Thanks for the tip--we're making aliyah to avoid eruv tavshilin! (just joking--but I WON'T miss the three day marathon chagim!)

aliyah, who are you making Aliyah with? NBN? If you have any questions or anything at all about the process, please feel free to ask here or e-mail me. I've done it, and if I can help make the process easier for some-one else, nothing would make me happier. Chag Sameach.

Hahaha!!!
Well said. You sound like my husband-he HATES 'Yom Tov sheni shel galuyot!'
I used to love the two-or-marathon-three-day-chag with eiruv tavshilin. It used to stretch out the Kedushah for me. But the older I get, the less I can handle it. Especially the EATING, which is downright UNHEALTHY.
Well, with 4/5 of our kids living in Israel, (one still in the IDF & another scheduled for 'giyus'in a little over a year) we will probably (sigh) have to make a second Aliyah "ba-atid ha-karov."
I'm getting too old for this...
