I stayed up and called them at 8.30am their time to see if they made it down to Beirut safely. check. I woke up early and called them at 1pm to see if they were on the ship. Nope, not yet. They were "checked in" and their bus was being held for 3 hours, so when I called they were sitting, waiting. I have spent so much time with the cell phone glued to my ear that I am 46 minutes away from my limit this month.
My parents really would not be leaving if it were up to them. Every year they spend the spring & summer there, and their fall & winter here, and this whole war and evacuation just didn't fit into their plans. The good news is my father completed some crazy root canal work on Monday, his foot is feeling better, and my mom had time to get her hair done. SA says she's going to be the prettiest refugee!
