I just finished trying to call my aunts, and my hands are literally trembling. Six calls and no success yet. Some of the numbers are bad, some of them are probably right but no one picked up — and I’m wondering if anyone will, what with all the scams that are going around these days.

I guess I have to wait and try again. The second time is always easier, after all. I’m still not sure what I’m going to say to them, though.
