Moving on and OUT

I don't think i am exaggerating when I say that we've viewed over twenty apartments in the last two weeks. Some realtor's tell us how "tough" the market is, or "you'll never get it for that price", but at the end of the day, it's a market place, you haggle, you smile, you sell yourself as the nice, newly married couple who smell good and have big smiles. This isn't America they tell us. Which is a translation for: we'll rent you a crap apartment without heating and it's ok. What little do they know as we smile back at them.
They have no idea.
They don't know that secretly we have maddening karoake parties on random days. That we're addicted to barbequing and yes, we are thinking of getting a dog.
Dare US!
We also know we have been looking for something a little bit different. Something that has an "edge" which I can't be sure what that means in Jerusalem, but for what it's worth. We might have found it. Not a place with a huge edge. But definately a place that has a big bathroom (which is unheard of) and probably too big to keep warm during the Jerusalem winter.
Until then, i'll probably get my panties in a knot thinking about my absentee ballot and it's location (which is not in my mailbox)

Ballot hasn't arrived?

If your ballot has not arrived, use the Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot (FWAB). The FWAB serves as an emergency ballot for voters who registered in time but fail to receive an official ballot from local election officials. The
FWAB is available at www.fvap.gov or from any U.S. Embassy or Consulate.

If your regular state ballot arrives after you have mailed the FWAB, complete and mail the state ballot as well.

Returning your ballot

Voted ballots and FWABs may be mailed to your local voting officials in the United States through first-class international mail or from any U.S. Embassy or
Consulate. Last-minute voters should consider using an express courier company to deliver their ballots. A few states also accept completed ballots by fax or
e-mail. You can look up your state's regulations at ww.fvap.gov.


The Voting Assistance Officer at U.S. Embassy - Tel Aviv is available to answer questions about absentee voting. To contact the Voting Assistance Officer, send
an e-mail to AMCTelAviv@state.gov.

Love, Carol
