Mom & dad faithfully came to visit me in Glenville, IL, for the Winter time holidays.
I was excited to see them, however they didn’t expect me to provide up our school time for them.
During the holidays, mom & dad loved to go skiing, & Grandmother & Grandpa would go with them. I found out while in the first Winter time that snow skiing was not for me. There wasn’t enough heat in AK to keep me boiling after our time on the mountains. All I wanted to do is get back to Glenville, IL & hop into a tub filled with steaming water. I needed to get the cold out of our system, which had sunk into our bones. I had now been in Glenville, IL for almost 3 years, & I still wasn’t used to the cold. Grandmother had excellent heating in the house, & she had all of her inspections done yearly, so it wasn’t her oil furnace. I assume some of it had to do with our going back home while in the summer. My body didn’t have enough time to adjust to the change in weather, since I didn’t go back to Glenville, IL until right before school went back in session. I went right from 100 plus degrees to seventy degrees. As much as I loved Glenville, IL & our Grandparents, I still didn’t savor the Winter time weather. I loved being home & going to the beach with our friends. I was going to miss Grandmother & Grandpa when I graduated school, but I was a boiling weather person & I didn’t assume I would ever get used to needing all that heat in the winter.
