Aloha Auinapo


I don't think I'd want to live there, but it's a great place to visit.


Our plane touched down just before 7:00 a.m.  Wednesday, bringing us safely home from Hawaii. It was a much-needed respite. I did absolutely nothing constructive in the entire seven days I was in Hawaii. I had not realized just how desperately I needed to do nothing constructive for awhile. I now feel almost sane for the first time in months.

My shopping has been done. I'm wrapping gifts right now. Mostly I'm lazy and use recycled gift bags, but I try to use actual wrapping paper for the kiddies' gifts because I think it's more fun for them to tear wrapping paper off a present than to merely take the gift from a bag.

Earlier this evening I had a date with one of my cohort mates. We had a good time, although I committed a major faux pas in falling asleep during the movie. I thought I'd gotten enough sleep on the plane last night to get me through today and tonight, but I apparently miscalculated. I hope my date didn't take it personally. C'est la vie. I'll sleep well tonight when I eventually make it to bed.

I didn't get a tan in Hawaii, but I did achieve my goal, which was to avoid a sunburn. If there's one thing I've learned so far in life, it is that melanoma is not your friend.

  1. I am sure that if your date is in med school, he understands perfectly. Sounds like a lovely trip! I am jealous. I have not been to Hawaii yet.

    1. I would have preferred going to Switzerland, but I suppose the grass is always greener, or the snow whiter, anyway . . .
