Lonely is still better than being dead for my brother's family.

at least they were all exposed and mildly sick together so can spend Thanksgiving at my brother's and SIL's house.

I talked my SIL today and she has been overwhelmed with so much legal paper work but it gives her something to do. And she wanted to get a different car it was like #1 on her list. She drove a late model Expedition which she said was just too big and she didn't need it anymore and my brother had a late model Acura sedan. She thought it through on her own and went to her local Ford dealership where they bought all their other SUV'S and traded in both cars and bought a pre-owned 2019 Explorer which was formerly leased with low mileage, etc. and she drove it home. She is happy with it, she had many Explorers before the Expedition and she doesn't have a payment and the car looks brand new. We were so impressed she did it all on her own. Told her sons after the fact. They also were thrilled she made up her mind and did it on her own. I'm so proud of her.

But she told me she also had a melt down when she got home but got herself back together before her granddaughter came to have dinner with her.

I told her "meltdowns are always ok and come when you are alone so expect them." She is finding her way and I know my brother would be proud of her.
