I know easier said than done, itís delicate, and the current atmosphere (covid) can exponentially make depression worse. Hoping the best for you.
    Thanks KW! Unfortunately he moved across the country just before covid happened, so with current circumstances a visit isn't possible for now, but I keep trying and hope he comes out of it again. But in happier news my car will be fixed on Monday and I can put that hassle behind me!

    Glad you are ok, groupie, and you'll get your car back today!

    Here? Pumpkins, scare crows, smores, pumpkin spice, sweaters, fire pits, fog on the water, changing leaves...all things FALL!

    Thanks Brooke! I picked my car today and for some reason they left the emergency brake on. I've never used it before and didn't know it was on; its electric so it's hard to tell. I couldn't figure out why I had trouble getting the car out of the parking lot! I had to get the body shop people to come out and look at it. So embarrassing!

    I love fall too!

    OMG Groupie - Happy to hear you are ok and got your car back today. As for your friend, all I can say is let him know you are there for him.

    Brooke - I agree ! I am so happy it is Fall and the hot summer is over ! It is my favorite time of the year. The weather has been beautiful here.

    Glad you are ok Groupie and sending best wishes to your friend. Here things are going on as much as they can. Our whole country is back to level 3 restrictions which means no-one can leave their county except for work, education or essential purposes (Is retail therapy essential), gatherings of up to 6 people max and from no more than one household. Restaurants closed except for take away. Halloween is cancelled. We were expecting level 5 yesterday so 3 isn't too bad. Schools are remaining open, although Universities and colleges have gone practically completely online.

    On that note a bit of good news. My daughter had started languages in University last year but both the course and the commute didn't work out for her. Basically what she could do 'on paper' was too restrictive in terms of the modules she could actually take and coupled with a 2 hour minimum daily commute it got too much for her to manage. She left and reapplied to do Music and German in a University only 20 mins train ride away. It is all working out very well and she is much happier. I think she was very brave to acknowledge what wasn't working and re evaluate. She had gotten very quiet and almost depressed between that, the passing of her grandmother and the lockdown but she is back now to her old exuberent self!! Even with most of her lectures at home it was definitely the right choice.

    Thank you everyone! Your thoughts and well wishes are appreciated!

    I'm glad your daughter is doing well, GA. It is a hard time for college students (and us all) right now.
