A Snowbird Wannabe?
I wistfully wave and watch them go, sometimes wishing that I could afford to do the same. The prospect of paying rent or mortgage on two homes for the winter is just not within my reach. I know, I should have planned better, saved more, worked harder, whatever. Too late now.
I'll just have to content myself with the knowledge that while they are lounging by the pool, or sipping pina coladas under the palms, I will be watching the wonders of winter: Snowflakes turning everything pure white, kids sledding and constructing snow men, snowblowers creating drifts as they clear driveways---
You're not buying it, are you? Me neither!
