But I really really want to

Maps says three hours each way. Stitches West moved to Sacramento, I haven’t been in four years thanks to the pandemic (and to having had Covid during the 2020 one–Early Adopter status, it’s a Silicon Valley thing) and I badly want to see old friends I never get to see anywhere else. Even Mel and Kris are going to be there, and they’d thought they were done with making that drive from Oregon, but no, they’re coming.

So we talked about it. I told him, you know how utterly crashed I was coming home when it was twenty minutes away, I don’t know how I’d do three hours at the wheel afterwards much less driving that twice in a day. That’s also the weekend Michelle’s supposed to move.

But: I want to see my friends. (Thinking, I could even go and almost not buy any yarn because the first day is always such an intense overload and there wouldn’t be a second day.)

He totally grokked how important that was to me. But also to our daughter.

“Let’s think about that.”

Even if there were public transportation, it would involve some time spent out in the sun and I absolutely cannot take that risk at all.

Doesn’t Amtrak go from San Jose to Sacramento? I remember people used to take a special train from Sacramento to Stiches in Santa Clara. Still, the issue of being outside … and getting the scooter there.

I hope things work out. Being in the same state as Mel and Kris hasn’t made it any easier to buy from them!

Where there is a will…there is (almost always) a way! ?

Oh, I hope you can figure out a way to make it work!

I’ll be missing them, too. It’s the same weekend as my niece’s gymnastics meet in Utah.
