Calming down

November 17, 2012

No, the situation or the war is not calming down. But we are. It was a bit scary and nervous yesterday, since it’s the first time we experienced it, but today we are a bit calmer. Tomorrow I go back to work.

The kids are sleeping in their regular beds tonight, and so will we. Yesterday I stayed up until around 7 in the morning, and after the kids had gotten their breakfast, and my wife got up, I went to sleep for 2 hours.

We will keep going with our regular life here, but being a bit more on the alert. (Ok, not really regular – I’m off the university studies for a while, since my teacher was drafted).

The way I see it, and explained it to the kids (and to myself): If you are in the street, and there’s a siren, and you do nothing – you are still more likely to be hit by a car than by a rocket. We run downstairs two floors, just in case. Not because we think there will be a rocket. Just as you put on seatbelts without thinking there will be a car crash.

Thanks for all the positive answers and feedbacks we’ve been receiving. We appreciate it. As you might have noticed I have stopped twittering (it’s not on the right side anymore), and will instead keep my small updates on Facebook, for a limited number of friends who know me personally.

And that’s all I have to say right now. Our life will go on as usual right now. Just a bit more on the alert. Shorter showers, just in case. Change clothes one part of the body at a time. Make sure we always know where to go if something happens.

God is with us.
