Shalom from Tel Aviv

Shalom and good evening worthy friends! I am sitting in the lobby of The City Hotel in Tel Aviv, Israel at this very moment. Just had a nice dinner of all white/yellow foods and it was good. I think hummus is going to save my life on this trip. Can’t say the same for all of the olives that keep following me wherever I go.

Walked…that’s right…WALKED down to the beach to watch the sunset over the azure water of the Medeterrainian and it was glorious. Here I am dipping a toe or two in the sea.

Please do NOT judge me on my appearance. This is after 15 hours of travel across the world. Stuck in the middle on the 10 hour flight from Newark. And then a nice hot bus ride to the hotel. Straight to the beach for sunset. I’m tired. I probably smell. And my stomach was rumbling. But this is an experience of a lifetime and I’m not going to miss out.

So what did you do today?

I am so jealous! I was stuck in an office in front of my lousy computer. I would love to travel the world…even if I had to take HUET!!

Enjoy!

Well, let’s see. . .today I walked my dog (Lola), came to work, checked my mail, worked some more, did the crossword in the back of OK Magazine, did a little more work, talked to a co-worker for an hour, worked some more. I pretty much only work in 15 increments!!! Beat that!!!!!! LOL

I am so glad that you have this website so that we can live vicariously through you!

Sat at my desk reading your blog and combing Craig’s List and MySpace…..dang I’m bored today….oh yeah, that is in between working….I also work in 15 minute increments…happens when you have ADD…it’s the only way to survive in the workforce!

ooh, i’m jealous!! oh..and dont worry, you can really only see the outline of you but I’m sure you look fabulous (not as fab as the gumbi suit though!)

today i overslept, worked for about 15 min, got coffee, worked again and then goofed off on the computer. i took a long lunch cause i did a little shopping for an upcoming trip and instead of working for another 15 min i decided to read your blog (even though I love green beans)

Hey Sue, what is scrabulous?

who else is psyched about the Lost finale tonight!!

I am so jealous of you! and jealous of everyone who works at home or travels for work! I’m at my desk looking outside at the beautiful blue sky counting the minutes until the weekend…and wishing I was outside!

Scrabulous is an online scrabble game right, Sue? I’ve tried playing but the computer is too dang fast for me and hardly accepts my words…and the words the computer come up with are unbelievable. I can’t figure out how to change it to beginner level.

I went to Jazzercise at 5:45am…..came to “work” (I do the 15-minute increments, too)…..played in the forums on Plentyoffish.com (singles site)……had lunch with my family at Cerner where my brother-in-law works…..ordered letterhead……back to “work”. In an office. With no window. Unless I lean over and look out the window of the attorney across the hall.

Yyyyaaaawwwwwnnnnnnn…………

I was surprised with a Starbucks coffee this morning while reading the paper in my PJ’s, watched the crew from GMA do some salsa dancing, changed a couple poopy diapers, paid bills and organized my budget, showered, went to an awards assembly for my 6th grader, then stopped at the bank, Sonic (for Happy Hour, of course) and then to the store to get a few groceries thinking I’d been all productive and then I get home and read you’re in Israel. I was so jealous until I realized you probably didn’t get to change poopy diapers today, did you?! HA!!! And I was about to be depressed that you’re doing more exciting things than me today….

I SO do not feel bad anymore for not working while I am at work….I was starting to feel a little guilty about it, but not anymore when I know there are others who only work in 15 minute increments like myself! 🙂
