Winter Roost

I have found a home away from home for the next four months. It’s perfectly suited to me; sitting so near the ocean, so great when the weather turns turbulent. So near to where I need to be, five minutes from my mother’s house.

Everything is temporary.

I will return to my little island each weekend, happily, to be in my own home, cooking good food, sitting by the fireplace with my husband, walking to visit friends. Recharging.

Then back. Two refuges.

  1. I read your earlier post about deciding what to do and it reminded me of my own situation a few years ago. My mother lived about 2 hours away and had to go into assisted living, but I really didn’t like the place or that they had a nursing home next door to which they would send her whenever she was ill. I tried to visit every weekend, but it was not a great situation. So I found an assisted living place just down the road from me and moved her up to it. What a relief to be able to go over any day of the week. Then less than a year into that, I lost my job and could only find one 1 1/2 hours away! I lived in an apartment during the week and came home on weekends to visit both my mother and my husband.

    You worried about your move being temporary, but so what. You do what you need to do. My mother died 6 months after I had to move for my job, but moving her to my town was still the right idea. Just enjoy your new arrangements.
