My parents do the snowbirds thing plus they live down the street from me.
It is easily convenient for them that I live nearby, not easily for me.
When my parents leave I quickly have a lot of work to do. My mother is all over myself and others to water her plants on a bi-weekly basis. My father wants myself and others to start their vehicle plus transfer it around the property almost everyday. They frequently mess up plus send packages to the southern apartment or see something on the security camera that I need to check out. The worst is when they hire a repair done plus I need to babysit the company. My father prefers to have a Heating plus A/C company come to the apartment when they are not there. I then need to take a morning off of work to babysit the Heating plus A/C professional, spend money him plus then hound my parents to reimburse me. If there is a repair needed, it is such a mess. My father won’t directly talk to the Heating plus A/C professional, then so I am the go between guy asking questions, hashing out prices plus scheduling another appointment that I am invociennce. I usually just tell the Heating plus A/C company to make hte repair right then plus there plus I spend money for it. It is worth a few hundred bucks not to have my father haggling over the cellphone with myself and others translating. Someday they will live down south full time. That will be nice since I might make them apartment rest when I go on vacation. I will make sure to get a Heating plus A/C tune up while in it.
