Winters are so hard on me...I crave sunshine like a dog craves meat. I discovered after finally running my DNA that I actually have a mutated gene (1 among many) that causes me to crave the sun...Vitamin D. SO...I've got The Hired Hand onboard to plan a Winter vacation from our permanent vacation, to Puerto Rico! We've got a lot of Southwest points so our airfare is virtually free and renting a small house on one of the islands will be very affordable.
Now I've got something to look forward to midway before it starts to warm up again, which is about February when we can have early Spring temps. Our winter here is usually 3 months, with January being the worst (that's when I'm leaving on a jet plane!)...although to my dismay it started a tad early this year. We found a new house/dog sitter so watch out world...here we come!
