While there are many benefits to our lifestyle of being bicoastal, it’s not all wine and roses over here.
Well, we do drink wine.
But we also have to work. I’m lucky enough that I can do my job from anywhere, and my husband can, too … most of the time.
A couple of times a month he takes short business trips either back to his office in CA or to other locations. It’s a huge drag, but in the grand scheme, it’s not such a big deal since it means we can spend the summer here and do fun things as a family a lot of the time.
It is definitely hard on me, though. It becomes doubly hard when we encounter an obstacle, which we almost always do when he goes away.
Usually they get sick, which I’m waiting for since his cousins were diagnosed with double strep and pneumonia only days after we left them in New York.
