Now it’s the end of year. Though we should be quite careful about meeting people, I and my sister have decided to do our annual family gathering from 12/31 to 1/2 - my sister’s family visit here and stay with me & mother.

With such sudden hesitation I have spent some hours and now it’s already the last day of this year(I should go to bed 1 hour before). I hope our family meeting will be done safely but really, nobody can be sure about the safety. Any of our family members might have had the virus already. Thus my uneasy last day of this uneasy year has begun...
