Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 341: Long-Distance Care

As much as I enjoy living in Sacramento and can't really imagine moving back to New England, being on the opposite coast from Mom can be challenging when there's a need to provide long-distance care of some kind. I'm very appreciative of technology and phone contact to stay connected, but it's just not the same as being there in person. I have a feeling this is going to be a recurring theme in my life over the next couple of decades, and I don't really have a solution at this point...
