Thank you so much, Stu! I so like to see you here.
Last 2 years were not easy for us all. I was planning to come back to work and passed some exams that were allowing me to move forward. Then, Covid came and uncertainty ruled. My husband got furloughed, I started homeschooling kids and had to reschedule my plans. I also was simply afraid of this new challenge, so unpredictable. Staying home was safer option after all that I went through. My dad died in October 2021 after heave stroke. I was lucky to be with him during his last week. He seemed to wait for me after spending 4 sad months alone between life and death when nobody was allowed to visit him. I am a sole caregiver to my dementive elderly mom, now.
Twins will start high school next year and I am so happy to be with them, see them, support them, sometimes teach them and mostly just enjoy this great time with them.
My scans were clear and my labs were fine once more so I am free to live my life and travel to Europe. We hope for a good vacation.
We are flying through London and are planning a day there.
Greetings for your Mom and the whole Family!
