If not for saving the email confirmation of my Amtrak ticket, I would not have known that the last time I saw my mom and sister was 19 October 2019. I will not be traveling anywhere at all that I cannot reach by foot (I won't even use the subway or bus or a taxi), or maybe by bike, until there's a vaccine and it's safe to do so. I have a feeling this means it will be a full two years, at least, before I see them again. I will have missed my mom's entire 83rd and 84th years.
