Day 34 – space

June 17, 2018

Woke up early with the worm- to go to the supermarket. That is the time I can park with ease and the aisles are less crowded.

Downstairs in the supermarket is grocery and upstairs are clothes.

We went downstairs first- daughter 2 and I. Got a few things for my in laws and my sister’s children. One of her sons is having a birthday tomorrow. I am sending him a T-shirt with my husband who is travelling to see them tonight.

Last year at this time, we were preparing for my mother’s surgery. We went to hospital on June 18, 2017.

My husband will be visiting my daughter 1 at her college during this visit- so he is carrying a lot of her stuff which she left behind here. True to form, he finds it difficult to take all the things-with the baggage limit of the airways and many places to travel to during this visit.

My mother can chew only walnuts among the nuts with her teeth. So she has some walnuts and raisins. And daughter 1 gets some muesli, cranberries, cookies and her clothes.

Travel and space are inversely proportional it seems. The longer one travels, the lesser the space allotted for comfortable travel. And if the journey has to be broken up at places, then travel and space are even more compromised.

I am not sure how my husband will know what to give whom. It will be hard decisions for him.

  1. Funny. I remember leaving from the Catskills to an apt. in New York during my 20s. My mom used to send me off with food: soup, chicken, homemade bread. I was very thin as eating was a luxury after paying rent. I loved being invited out to dinner on a date!!
