Next Saturday I fly from the cold state of Virginia to the freezing cold state of Minnesota. With one friend going to Puerto Rico this month and another on a Caribbean Cruise, I can’t help but wonder if I have it backwards by heading north. But this is what it’s come to — my airline ticket money is saved for home, and heading south while tempting, just wouldn’t feel right.
There isn’t a big To-Do list this time, my plan is to mostly chill and spend time with my family.
But if you read “Racing Alzheimer’s: Mom’s New Year Resolutions” recently, you know that there is a list — it’s just not my list. I hope to knock some things off mom’s list by doing what we can that doesn’t require warmer weather. I know require is a relative term, but this Minnesota girl has become a cold weather wuss since leaving over 20 years ago. I mean, there’s really no reason to be outside when it’s below 40 degrees.
A warm coat, chap-stick, and mom’s list — let’s do this.
Hopefully I’ll be able to smell spring in the air when I return.
