HAPPY NEW YEAR! WOOHOO! 2008!




Christmas Spider
Gee, it's hard to believe 2008 is here already! Amazing how quickly time seems to pass as one ages! I've become my mom, my children have become me and time marches on. Marriages, birth, deaths....menopause...ye gads! well, i won't bore you ( although one of these days i will get into a discussion on being a woman and growing old)...but today is a day to celebrate...i mean...it's 2008 and we are still here to talk about it....and that IS a celebration! It is just midnight here in Kilauea, and in most places New Years is over.....here, all the neighborhood kids (yeah, right...) are lighting fire crackers (rolls of up to 10,000....which are legal) all at the same time! It is VERY noisy..... but hey, it's NEW YEARS!
Gawd, I hope and pray...NO.....I INSIST! next year I WILL BE MOVED TO THE MAINLAND!....that is my resolution!... (ok, OUR resolution, my DH wanted to be included)
i've got to move closer to my boys and family....
Here are some Christmas week photos of my DH, my son Skylar and Me - Sky took a lot of photos, despite the constant rain.....he really liked my camera, so "Santa" brought him one of his own....i've put them in a slide show so they won't be too boring .....the goose is a Hawaiian nene, pics of the Kilauea lighthouse.....the beach, Haena cave, etc. sorry for the repeats...i don't know why "Rock You" widget is doing that....anyway, enjoy.

It took me 3 tries, but I finally got into your blog and saw the photos (my connection to the internet has been acting up and cutting me off). They're wonderful.

I will love it when you live on the mainland, because I will make sure I get to see you.

Happy New Year to you!

Isn't it funny how the grass is indeed always greener on the other side? LOL Most people dream of moving to "Hawaii", and you dream of moving back :-) Hope your dreams come true.

Great pics and the slide show with the music playing made me happy and I wanted to kick my feet up and dance! I'll miss you living on the island but know you really want to move and perhaps we'd see each other more on the mainland?
