    Ninshubur I hope this doesn't sound too controversial, but I'm not all that worried. We distinguish a bit between "tested positive for Covid" and "having Covid". She has no symptoms whatsoever and no one in her family doesn't seem to care, either. I've talked to my family and they shrugged it off. I think my mother-in-law was more exposed when she was still working in a hospital in her home country.
    Not that it matters, because the daughter didn't join me today, because it was cold, and wet, and rainy. But at least she gave me some food, so I don't complain.

    Day 276
    Ironborn 7

    I forwent the other workouts today in favour of music. I felt like I neglected my instruments a bit and just needed the time today. My fingers were itching to feel the strings again.

    Had a quick phone call with my father, too. He admitted that he yearns for some loving female company but has no idea how to tackle it. He liked what I've told him about my mother-in-law and thought it would be a nice idea, with both of them being 'single' again, and she looking for a new home if she ever gets tired of us. And they even had something connecting them! His words, not mine. I think he means me and my other half. Not that he recognises our relationship. Because, in his opinion, only man and woman can share that bond. To him, we're just good friends living with each other. He asked for a three-way phone call on the weekend, with him talking to my mother-in-law and me translating. She thinks about it. It seems interesting, but with my non-existent skills in listening, speaking and translating at the same time it's going to be a long affair.

    Have a nice weekend, everyone.

    The letter and flowers seem odd to me, but you know your family best. I am glad that you ended up with a photo of your father.
    Also, wouldn't spending time with someone positive for COVID expose you to COVID and. in turn, expose your family? Perhaps I am misunderstanding.

    huma, Anek and Lady Celerity I think my father actually was very genuine with his letter and parcel. He doesn't have any experience with romance so that might be his idea of courting/flirting? Idk. I guess he kind of wants to cheer her up and probably thinks it would be a good idea with her being a bit homeless at the moment and all. He certainly didn't mean bad and I can imagine he has no idea how meeting a woman actually works. I'm going to call him tomorrow, see what's on his mind.
    My mother-in-law has allowed me to keep the photo of him.

    Now that's what I would call weird.

    Day 275
    Ironborn 6
    Floof to Run 18 (yesterday was 17. My bad)
    20 mins Rowing

    No HIIT today.

    The daughter of my employee usually keeps me company when I get ready to head out and has provided me with something to eat every day since Monday this week. She's even shorter than me, big novelty for me. Today, she told me that she has to work from home for the next weeks or so, instead of in the office in the city. At first I didn't know why she told me that, but then she said she was positive for Covid. One of her co-workers, who ironically was one of the few vaccinated, got ill and now everyone in the office got tested. Now that she has to stay at home and has almost nothing to do, she asked me if she could join me tomorrow. I'm tempted to say yes, but I wonder if she would hinder me. But the company would be nice. She's nice to talk to and on some days, I long for someone to talk to who isn't my other half/my mother-in-law.
    She also speaks very clearly, which is a plus.

    Maybe the letter and gifts to your mother in law are your father's way of wanting to be connected to you again? idk. I always try to think the best of people. But I can understand why you'd feel uncomfortable. Reminds me of when my former father in law tried to hit on me. ugh
