This is a good question, Ross Mannion.
All I know so far is that I will be in Europe at least until the end of 2019, and realistically as long as my family needs support so this is open-ended. It’s hard to know how things will pan out with my stepmom and I’m certainly not abandoning my parents, whether there’s two or just the one of them.
The idea is to establish a base here in the EU as soon as we get into some kind of new routine so I can eventually bring my two cats over from the Pacific Northwest.
I don’t know any more than that at this point so all I can do is keep my head down, work as hard as I can while being present for my family, and roll with the punches.
