Had a pretty crappy few days - now a week - in the back of a minor interaction, with some fuel thrown on the embers by helpful parties. So, time to go home. Enough already.
Booked a ticket home for two weeks from now (so I’m not getting on a crammed flight at 4x price out of anger).
Informed the adults, who are a bit shocked (even though that was part of the awful after-talk of the nothing situation) and attempting to convince me cancel, given rising cases everywhere and probably increased travel risk.
Will break it to the kids shortly, but they will have 2 weeks to adjust to the idea.
Meanwhile, baked a cake for a wedding anniversary today - kids helped decorate (and write on top after this).
And a delicious late lunch / early dinner for me - scrambled eggs and toast - scrambled eggs a la my vegetarian grandmother who didn’t eat eggs but was the best maker of these ever (grandfather’s favorite), and bread courtesy me and Serious eats’ version of Lahey’s recipe which is really just a few extra days in the fridge.
