Boy, talk about depressing!
I just glanced over at the 10-day forecast on the web and sometime next week -Wednesday, I think it said -the temperature here is gonna get really warm.
Clear up to a degree below freezing- 31 degrees!
Well, compared to today's high prediction of maybe 18 but with a "real feel" temp of 8 above zero, that will be a bit of a heat wave.
All this makes me think of other things -like how about maybe some Myrtle Beach Vacations?
Any place warmer would sound great to me right about now!
My new found relative -family tree connection -told me yesterday she's going to be heading out next week to San Diego. Now there's gonna be a big change for her since she lives in Boston and has been getting hit by a lot of snowfall lately. Go, take in some sunshine and get some extra while you're there for me.
Mandy's just biding her time here now, waiting for March to roll around and then, she plans on taking a short jaunt trip -out to Phoenix and from there, up to Laughlin, Nevada, to spend a day or two with her Dad and her new step-mother. Technically, the step-mother isn't exactly "new" since she and the kids Dad have been married over a year now I think it is. But she's "new" to Mandy since neither she nor Carrie has met her yet -except via Facebook. Clate and his girlfriend, Betty, were lucky to have been able to take a week and go out to Las Vegas and from there, down to Laughlin back in November and met her then.
The nice thing about this trip for Mandy is that her Dad is paying for her plane fare. I think it would be nice if he would consider adding in the kids too but then, what kind of break or vacation would that be for Mandy if she had to take them and worry about all the new, strange things they would encounter and could possibly send both kids into massive meltdowns?
So, the plan right now is that while she is gone -from a Thursday to the following Monday or Tuesday (not positive on the return date) that Maya will stay with Mandy's best friend and her family (Jen-Jen) and Kurtis will be here with Gram. That means, Gram will only have to worry about getting him ready and off to his school one day and yeah, I can manage that with no problem. And by separating the kids for that time, it will in essence, give me a big break too.
And, another neat thing about this trip is that Mandy's boss is going to be traveling to Phoenix then too so the two of them can hold each other's hands during take-off and have a good friend to chat with during the flight too.
Plus, Mandy will also get a chance to see a tiny bit of Phoenix too -a place I'd really LOVE to be visiting again!
Oh well, if I can make it through the next couple of months and the winter weather, who knows -maybe one of these days I'll figure out a way to get up and away from it all too!
