Living Far from Family
It's so hard to live in a town that's not close to any other family members. My son was sick yesterday with fever, so of course I can't take him to daycare today. However, he feels FINE now and just needs to have someone spend the day with him. If we lived near either set of grandparents, voila. It would be so easy. But we don't -- we chose colleges 5 hours away from our parents and then got jobs here. I wonder why it's so honorable and respected in our culture to move away from family? Seems like we need to go back to staying together.
