Currently I have my husband's family staying with us so we are trying to take a bit of a holiday around his daily work schedule. This isn't easy with the Government pulling their shut down, now we are open but Let's schedule another shut down for February again; all while the family is here mind you.
We did visit the Dole plantation and watch the sunset on the North Shore yesterday. All photos were taken on someone else's phone. Sorry.
However, I do have one from the luau we went to two days before Christmas that I can share with you.
I broke my L-4 vertebrae in a fall from a step ladder. I was about 4 feet up in the air on a 6 foot ladder hanging the Christmas lights when a gust of wind caught the ladder. Down I landed. I now wear a back brace until the surgeon tells me otherwise. No surgery yet. I hope to not have any on my spine. I'll know more in a few days when the surgeon looks at the results of the MRI he requested.
Hard to believe that my little E will be starting Pre-K this year. She'll be 4 in July. She loves playing basketball, and with her Barbies too. Her vocabulary is quite complicated and surprising. There are days I never know what is going to come out of her mouth. A week ago she used ridiculous in a compound sentence and it made complete sense. Where did my baby go? She doesn't like to be called a baby either. Yikes!
As for that false alarm with the missile....Well I grew up next to a SAC base. So ya know what? It is not like I had much time back then to get anywhere before a missile would strike either. Oh and the bomb shelters here on Oahu are not open. They are considering re-opening them now that we are entering a new Cold War. Okay You Think That Might Be A Good Idea?
