As February turns to March, the talk around Harbor View starts to change to the topic of going back home.
“When are you leaving for New York, Phyllis?” Mom asks.
“We’re leaving early this year – March 24. I really don’t want to, but we have a wedding near Boston in late March. How about you?”
“I think we’re going to leave in the beginning of April.”
“I hope you have your reservations for the train. They get really swamped in April.”
“Oh, no; we drive,” Mom replies.
