I'm so jealous of you folks down south (Brian and SuEllyn).

It's not even winter yet and I'm already tired of winter!
Funny you should mention us, Brent. I write this as we are having lunch at a restaurant in Tarpon Springs. Lucy is camped over in Zephyrhills.

Even as a single person, sometimes it's hard to say "NO" or "ENOUGH" but if you're taken advantage of it's ultimately because you fail to set limits. Or more kindly - you fail to help others clarify their expectations. I've been caught off guard and roped into stuff my sane self would never agree to... and I've finally figured out that I actually can call back and "renege" or "break my promise." You caught me off-guard and frankly if I'd been prepared I would have said "NO" right off the bat. I know you're disappointed but I just don't want to do___________. (Compromise offered only if I am truly willing to do less or something else.) Anyone who turns mean or threatens to never speak to me again? "Yes, I do understand how your really feel. Goodbye."

When I moved from chilly northern Ohio to Virginia Beach - I had friends (and often casual acquaintances who suddenly found a deep and abiding affection for me) who all seemed to feel entitled to come and visit for indefinite periods of time. Most of them also didn't have any plan to buy groceries or even do their own laundry (IE: MY beach towels). I got suckered in twice. After than when anyone called and announced that they'd be visiting and staying with me, I pulled out one of the "Dear Abby" defenses.
  • (truly welcome people) I'll be glad to provide you with sleeping quarters for X days, but I have other plans after that. You're welcome to stay til then, but I can't take off work and drive you around or provide your meals. (and the real friends did leave the place as clean as they found it.)
  • ("thrifty" boors, and other obnoxious types) I am sorry, I'm doing some remodeling and everything I own is piled in one room, but I'll be happy to look around and find you a nice hotel. How much can you afford per night?"
  • (putative mother in-law) "Mom, just so you know, we've already made reservations and are leaving town on such and such a date. We will need one to two days to pack, so make sure your plans include leaving by _____,
    (then the hard one when asked if can't reschedule ) NO. and say nothing else. no excuses, no reasons, no negotiation.
seriously, sounds like your sector has been invaded by Klingons ...

We have taken our Airstream to be fitted for awnings. She has only been gone 2 days, but I am already feeling withdrawals. I almost missed my driveway coming home from work yesterday! Didn't know my driveway was that big either! Hopefully we will get her back soon and I can find my way home!

Withdrawal ...continued. So, we have been thinking about putting Christmas lights on Eddie ... or Edie ... not sure if this one is a he or a she; won't check the plumbing until spring thaw!

And, yes, we needed the 4 WD jeep just to get EB up the hill and into our yard because the earlier rains had frozen with a huge drop in temperature. The snow has mitigated a bit for the last few days and we can see parts of our lawn again! Can spring Airstreaming be far off ... YES ...

Most Airstreams are females. Only a very males are needed for breeding stock. Most likely your Airstream is a her. Absolutely on the Christmas lights. That will make her (or him) feel more a part of the Family.

Hopefully, there will be an early Spring.

And retired too, I suppose? Go ahead, that really makes me feel better!

Unfortunately, my paycheck shows up in the cold north for a few more years.

I'm sorry for those Airstreams that have to be parked for the winter.

No withdrawals here. A couple photos from our campout a couple weeks ago. Drove 10 minutes to the lake and set up camp. Even had a campfire in the nice 70 degree weather.

In a couple weeks it will be an hour drive south to San Antonio for the New Year's holiday.

Yep, feeling the Winter Blues. I go and check every other day for leaks and mice. I also like to keep the mattress working with snuggy winter naps. I am buttoned up til March and I do not like it at all. I am going to try for a weekend a nearby Staye Park with good heated bathrooms, that way we can stay winterized. Fingers crossed. Just need to get to Christmas ( own a retail shop).

Definitely sharing your pain! We winterized the end of October, and won't thaw her out until Mid April. Missing those weekends away.
