Hi Everyone…. I’m not in Hawaii yet. We are at my parent’s place right now until our flight leaves to Hawaii tomorrow. It was a small stop over that was planned way back in the days when my sister LALA still lived down here!!!! So right now we’re killing time until my parents flight leaves this evening… My hubby needs a new bathing suit and I need another pair of sunglasses (can never have too many of those!!).
The flight here was great. Harmony Airlines is so cool and we’ll fly them again forsure! WE HAD A MEAL!!!! and… TWO MOVIES!!!! Can you believe it? The flight was less than the “discount” airlines and way less than the national airline and we got to eat and it was an awesome meal!! A hot meal!! I wasn’t even hungry but I ate anyways. While still on the ground in Toronto we ate in the Swiss Chalet there ’cause we are so used to being starved on flights and a 5 hour flight without a meal… sucks!! So here’s to Harmony Air!!!
During the flight I kept thinking of all the things I didn’t do before leaving and all the people who I needed to do stuff for, it was keeping my mind busy. I didn’t have time to decorate the church for Thanksgiving (this upcoming weekend). I’ve always decorated the church for fall. Then I started thinking about my friend, Sheryl (Cervical cancer free), and her state of mind the last time we talked. I called her on my way to the airport on Tuesday (to pick up Waawee) and she was bawling on the phone. We talked for about 20 minutes and she was inconsolable – lonely – afraid – frustrated – angry – sad – all at the same time. I’m worried about her and I feel guilty for leaving when she needs help the most. She is still in pain although not as much pain as before but it’s still there and they really still don’t know why. She feels weak all day and wants so bad to be whole again. I wanted to reach through the phone and give her a hug. She really needs someone to lean on and give her a hug. So anyway… my flight to BC was full of thoughts of those at home.
I called home already and talked to Waawee about the kids. I miss them. This is the first trip in many years without a child attatched at the hip. We’ve gone away to LA without kids (last trip for that was Jan 2004) but it was business – and no it is not the same. Here we have nothing to keep us occupied – or separate us… whatever will we do???? 😉 And NO… JZ will not become a big brother!!! I’m so done.
Thanks again Waawee for taking care of my brood. I know they’ll love you and they’ll be ok. I’ll talk to you again from the shores of Honolulu. Aloha ya’ll.
