Can't plan anything

It’s getting to me. We still haven’t met our new grandchild in person. It’s hearbreaking and I don’t know when I’m going to get to see him.  When we do, I don’t know if i’m going to be allowed to cuddle him.  But we do FaceTime as much as possible and that helps. I’m still working , so that helps me take my mind off things. I try and keep my workday as a workday. I do the laundry, cook dinner, maybe clean a cupboard. Then I have my dog who makes me take him for walks.

We were talking about renting a cottage this summer for a week. And then we’re thinking, there’s a little baby, will they be okay?  I’m thinking about when we left South Africa and what we did to our parents. There wasn’t Facetime back then. But at least they could plan a trip when they wanted to come or we could plan a trip if we wanted to go back, but now you can’t plan anything.
