Rant: I am 5 months pregnant. My dad wanted me to drive 8 hrs to see him I said no not in Covid and I’m not sitting for that long. I invite him and his fiancé here. He now says he won’t drive and must fly because he doesn’t want to drive alone (fiancé won’t come). I told him I wasn’t okay with him flying and staying here. He is so worried about my brother getting Covid and yet he will now just stay with him when he gets here (bro and I live in the same city). CONT
