Don’t depend on people.
I repeat: do NOT depend on people.
My plan was this: early afternoon – go buy small gifts. Late afternoon – go buy electronics. Early evening – do a bit of reading in a cafe. Late evening – family time.
What happened: late afternoon – pick up sister-in-law and go buy gifts. She knows a place. We finish late evening because, well, that’s how people shop.
What are the appropriate reactions I’m allowed to have? (Note: both my phones had no signal all day.)
