It was so thoughtful of the family members in Scotland to send you flowers. They really lifted your spirits. Everywhere parties and dinners have been cancelled, just like most. We've heard from our kids and received our gifts from them. Haven't exchanged gifts with the extended family, what's left of it, since the kids grew up. We would get together for a Hanukah party anyway and give gifts to the existing kids. That was before the move.
So it's a quiet, no parties, no movies, no going to sales two weeks.
Not sad, just different.
