Auntie Linda

Dear Auntie Linda, My husband and I have been happily married for six years and have two-year-old twin girls.   We are very close to our families.  In fact, our parents babysit, so they have never even been in daycare.  My husband has recently been offered the position of Chief Nursing Officer major hospital two hours away.  This would be a opportunity. I am a nurse also, but with his pay increase wouldn’t even have to work, if I didn’t want to.  Here  is the problem.  I don’t want to leave my home and take the children from their grandparents.  We have always gone to church here.  This is where our friends and lives are.  Would it be a mistake to ask Joey to take an apartment in the new town and commute on weekends?  With the pay raise, we could easily afford it.  Hometown Girl

Dear Hometown Girl,  Think really hard about this.  I wouldn’t want to risk my happy marriage and my children’s family time just to maintain a home near extended family.  Should my husband suggest living apart, I’d feel expendable.  This could be a mistake that would change your life forever.  Auntie Linda

Dear Auntie Linda,  I work in a Womens Tall and Stout shop.  I’ve seen a male family member shopping for underwear for himself in my store several times. He has waved to me.  I usually duck out and ask someone else to assist him?  I’d be happy to help him, but don’t really know how to handle this.  What should I do?  Puzzled

Dear Puzzled,  He obviously knows you work there.  Treat him like you would any other customer.  Offer to help. Take your cue from his behavior. Auntie Linda
