Now that the divorce is finally done and I've downsized and moved and John is away at college, I've decided that I'm going to start trying to spend more time at the Cape house each month. I want to use it (since I didn't lose it 😜), and it's good for me to go to a peaceful place that I love where I have happy memories from the time when the boys were young. I go when Sam is with his dad for a couple of days. I bring my editing work with me and get other things done at the house. And it's free! And freeing, too. So far, it's been working out well, and I continue to look forward to my increasingly common "Cape escapes."
