The Better Way To Spend A Week In Winter

 In Blog
If you’ve glimpsed any 24 hour news source over the last month, chances are you saw lots of airport delays, citizen deaths, power outages, all due to ice and bad winter weather. I, for one, am glad that the winter of 07 mainly found me sitting in 70 plus degree temps in Florida.

Still, that makes it difficult when there are family times like, oh, Christmas. Since it was important for the family in this home to spend our first Christmas just being together, that meant no trip to see the family I’ve known for my 32 years on earth.

This parting was eased because my parents, Phil and Nancy Engel, came down for a visit last week. Instead of being holed up inside a house while a winter storm raged outside, the week before Christmas was spent lounging around my back porch, having coffee, that sorta stuff.

I hope you’re as fortunate as I am to have such great parents who go out of their way to be accommodating. They’ve helped me realize my biggest resolution for 08 should be to be a little more like my folks.
