My husband’s and my immediate family are all on the other coast in California. While we all do fly back and forth to visit, it is a challenge to stay connected. We tried different things over the years, all with disastrous results:
- On our family reunion vacation in Maine, my mother broke her wrist and had to fly home with it uncast due to the swelling that would occur from the plane ride.
- My mother-in-law got terribly seasick on our family reunion vacation in Hawaii.
- And did I mention that my sister’s house caught on fire while Skyping her and my mother for the first time two Christmas’ ago?!
