I always whine about the winter weather...and today is a good day for it! LOL  I mean it is pretty.  But, I just like being outside without putting on half of my winter wardrobe. 

A friend invited me to a get together at her house tonight and I'm just not sure if I am going to go.  I'm not afraid of driving in adverse weather, but my hubby has to work tonight.  So, I'd be leaving the kids home for a couple of hours.  Which isn't a huge thing.  But, I think it's just the thought of trudging through the snow.  I'm so toasty with my jammies on...LOL.

We've talked a lot recently about our retirement place.  I love being warm and being outside.  I was born and raised her in Indiana so I have lots of ties and lots of family here.  But, I get so bogged down in the winter.  We went to Florida on a mission trip once between Christmas and New Years.  Oh my goodness.  I was so bit by the bug!  Everyone there was complaining about not going to the beach....and yet we walked all along there....let the wind blow through our hair.....with just a jacket on.  Wow.  Loved it!

Everyone says I'd miss the winter, but honestly, I don't think so.  I will always be visiting because of my family here, so I'll get the vision of white stuff.  But, as far as living my every day?  Oh I could so do with wearing sunscreen year round!!

Feb. 1, 2008 at 12:58 PM my mom lives in florida now.  I laugh at her when she says she had to wear pants instead of shorts or it didn't get above 70!  My half sister grew up there and she has one jacket she only wears when she comes to Indiana!  I've lived her all my life too but, I don't like winter!!  Not sure if I would like living anywhere else though, maybe.
