Tomorrow late afternoon, we will be in Hawaii.... Maui to be exact!!!
We have never been, and this was all planned quickly, just four weeks ago. I was very blessed to have been able to rack up 72 hours of overtime at the BFD last month, and so the money was available for us to go somewhere for spring break.
After having an extremely difficult and disappointing past six months, I was desperately in need of getting away. I have been so down and depressed, both due to the long winter weather months, as well as because of working the second job every day I wasn't at the BFD. My overall healthy had suffered greatly.... physically, mentally and spiritually. It was time for me to get out of my funk!!!
I quit working at Westside Pizza! I earned a substantial extra income last month through the overtime! I was already thinking about going somewhere sunny and warm and tropical for a week, just to get away from home and recharge! So, I booked us a trip to Hawaii!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)
And so, tomorrow morning, we will leave our house at 6am. Uncle Brad will go with us, and we will head to SeaTac to catch our plane. Grammy & Papa will meet us in Hawaii, as they will fly out of PDX.
Eight days in Maui!!! In a 4th floor condo, right on the beach!!! In a most beautiful location on the upper west coast!!! The weather forecast is for 79 to 83 degrees every day we are there, with lots of sunshine!!! Sun, surf, sand..... rest and relaxation..... good food and good drink..... no worries about home and life!!!
I am SO looking forward to this trip. We have NO agenda. Our only big adventure for sure is to take a day trip out for snorkeling. Other than that, we plan to lay back and play it by ear, one day at a time, one hour at a time!!! We may do a lot, we may do very little...... but the goal is simply to be very relaxed and very happy!!!
