That's what Akiva said when he came in the door from school and saw, his beloved sofa. He sat in it for the rest of the day, listening to music, while we sweated and shlepped and kvetched boxes from here to there and there to here. Our container arrived at about 9:30am and it was emptied over the course of the next 4 hours. Sweaty, nasty work, on a very hot day - a "hamsin" - heat wave or perhaps a "sherav"- a particularly hot and dry wind. We're unpacking but are exhausted from the day and are looking forward to some R&R tomorrow at Ulpan which will mean a few hours break from unpacking. Strange to see our NY things 6000 miles from home. Not sure what it really means. Don't want to think any further about it.
