That message from Joe and Jill really resonated with me today. I usually spend Thanksgiving with my mom at an open house hosted by family friends. I've often resisted going but I've done so because my mom loves it.

 

I'd give anything to be doing that today.

 

(Sorry. I'm feeling a bit maudlin and self-pitying.)

No need to apologize, @marceline.  Many of us are feeling the same way.  I just hope you are taking care of yourself today.

Don’t feel like you have to apologize, I definitely empathize and understand. This was the first time that I really felt the impact of the isolation since it started in March. Usually I am pretty strong, and I’ve been resilient, while my family has struggled but something about the holidays and now with Christmas right around the corner, it’s just different than it was in previous months.

 

I’m lucky that my mother lives so close to me (50 minutes away), and that I was able to spend the last 4 weeks with her while working remotely. But I have a large extended family (they live all across the eastern seaboard from Massachusetts to Georgia), and it’s upsetting to not have a gathering with them this holiday season.

Uh-oh.

I hate him so much.  He just has to stir things up on the way out. Even if it was an Israeli operation you just know he signed of on it.

Congratulations @Fevuh I worked with someone years ago who did a similar program at Harvard. It was tough and that was more than a decade ago. I'm sending you all the best thoughts I can.

 

Also, thanks everyone for indulging my whining. I appreciate it.
