I know most people get down and depressed come winter time. I can honestly say I was never one of those people, until recently. I feel bad for the children. They are unable to go out and play because the temperature is too low. I remember my mother couldn't get me in the house even in the winter. Now the thought of sending my babies out into the tundra that is Buffalo, NY makes me panic. We have been out several times to play in that fluffy white snow that dances around the yard. However when we get lake effect snow it's a whole different story. It's heavy and wet and the kids can barely move. Is winter over yet???? Probably not!
We need a vacation bad!!!! When I hear of people heading off to places that have palm trees and sandy beaches it makes me long for those summer days where the kids run and play in the yard in just their diapies. Where Austin jumps in the pool and exclaims "MOM, look what I can do". We have recently put down a deposit on a beach front vacation to take place this summer. The time can not come soon enough.
Do you think anyone would notice if this mama hopped on a plane, alone and headed for warm sun and cold Margarita's???? Somehow I think I would be missed. Long gone are the days of making last minute vacation plans. Now it is a collaborative effort meticulously planned months in advance. This is reality in the Stinner household. We have even planned our first Disney vacation to take place 2 years from now...that's how long it takes!!! Our lives are crazy and our vacations are adventurous...imagine when they're teenagers! God help us!
