*Something* was due today…

According to one of three calculations (?!), today was a due date for Bebe. We’ve been betting on whether the final closing of the apartment would come through before the baby. Initially, it seemed like apartment was a no-brainer; we already live there and have a solid relationship with our landlady for three years.

But, foiled by the bank, it was not to be – baby came last Friday, and lo and behold! – we are, today, homeowners.

I’m putting together a ‘buying property/getting a mortgage in Israel’ guide with our own little lessons from the process. God help anyone who cares to venture into this murky business.

But now I get to paint a mural on our mirpeset!
