I shall be waking up in Hawaii.  In fact it will probably be this same time, O'dark hundred, because my darn internal alarm clock doesn't adjust to days off and trips to Hawaii but that's okay.  I'll be close to my parents and siblings and the ocean.... far far away from the snow and cold.

I'm not sure if I'll be able to get online to check in or not.  I don't imagine there will be any Internet connection where I'll be staying.  9 days offline.  That will be like trying to hold my breath for 9 days.  No doubt it will be easy the first hour or so, but after that I shall probably start shaking, gasping and going through withdrawals.  The company will more than make up for my loss though... and the absence of winter. 

My oldest sister is here.  We look a lot alike.  We're kind of similar personality wise as well.  She's like me... with a strong Southern accent.  I'm like her, with shorter legs.

Oompas, please be good for your dad.  His birthday was yesterday, he's old now (Happy Birthday Dickidoo!) and doesn't remember what its like to be a teenager.  No eye rolling and keep the attitude to a minimum.  And please try to pick up the laundry room before we get back home.  Auntie will be here for a week after Hawaii and she will eventually want to go in there.  I'd hate for her to get lost under the piles.

Dickidoo... patience.  Thats all I ask. 

See you all in 9 days.

Aloha Dorn! Have a fantastic trip and holiday. Think of me when you're out on the beach.

Love, Lahoma

Have a wonderful trip, Dorn!! Dickidoo should be able to hold down the fort, so don't worry. You might want to pick up a 12-pack of Corona on the way back from the airport, though, just to ease your transition back into the "real world." ;)

Enjoy your time off,
:) Carol
