Almost time to leave ...
Only 2 more full days here before I leave on Wednesday morning on my flight back to the US. I don't even know where the time has gone. When all is said and done I will have been here for almost 3 weeks but not sure how it's flown by that fast. To be fair even though we were in lock down for a good amount of the time I have been here I was still keeping busy with sorting things in the house, getting things ready and setting things up for my mom. So each day was filled with a certain task.
I also worked this past Thursday and Friday (1 pm to 10 pm to match US East Coast office hours) and will be doing the same on Monday. But did have the weekend in between to give myself a little break which was nice. And luckily the weather was really nice over the weekend as well. The weather has been a complete roller coaster while I have been here. When I first arrived it was decent, then turned almost summer like for a few days before turning to winter and snow and now back to spring. But starting tomorrow afternoon there is another cold front coming which will bring more winter like temperatures and possibly more snow. Complete up and down weather wise.
I have been successful in resetting my dad's computer and setting everything up for my mom. I hope she will be able to use it ok as she has not used a computer in some years and anything new is difficult for her since her stroke. I did write her specific instructions and also wrote up a guide for her smartphone (so she can text more easily and use Whatsapp) Fingers crossed. She does have my aunt (her sister) who will be able to help her if she gets stuck.
I am not sure if I am ready to leave again in a few days but ultimately it is what it is of course. I can't stay here forever so the leaving has to come eventually. I am hoping to be able to come back at the end of the summer/early fall. All will depend on what everything looks like with Covid etc. I do have my first vaccine shot scheduled for May 3rd so by the time I come back I should be fully vaccinated. I am also trying to have my aunt help with getting my mom registered for her vaccine as she really should be getting it with her preexisting conditions.
Mail Update: Received a letter from/owe a response to: Nina/WA, Tiffany/OK.
