This winter weather feels like it’s never going to end. Just when I think spring is tip toeing in, winter fights back with another snow storm. This weekend we’re going to see another snow fall and I’m not sure I can take it. I’m tired of being cold, and I’m tired of being cooped up inside. I want to get out and go camping, swimming and bike riding – but mostly camping. I’m craving the warm sun on my skin and the sound of cheerful birds in the trees. I want to pack up the trailer and just go…
The kids are bouncing off the walls…they need a good, barefooted run across the grass. They also agree that we should just hitch up the trailer and go south. Words like Disney and Florida are being tossed around and are, oh so tempting. It’s hard to explain to them why we can’t just go, especially when it’s all I really want to do.
It’s not that I don’t like winter. I really do, but only up until January. Once Christmas is over winter becomes an annoying drag and it’s become apparent that I can’t do another full winter again. I don’t care where we go next year…Disney…but it needs to be for at least two weeks, it needs to be somewhere hot…Disney…and it needs to be during the coldest, longest part of winter!
Until then, I’ll try to hang on without going too crazy and get through the next month. That’s when I will start stocking the trailer for this year’s camping season!
