Island Travels

This afternoon, my precious husband and I will board a small plane and hop over to the Big Island of Hawaii. We have lived here almost four years and are just now getting around to seeing other islands. Waiting til the last minute is a bad habit of mine. I always have the false sense of having plenty of time. Take's 9:00 AM, the laundry needs to be changed out, my bed is not made, breakfast dishes not done, and I haven't started packing. I'm not sure I have enough clean clothes to pack, so I'll need to get on that laundry pretty quickly.
We went to Maui last month right after my husband changed out of battalion command. A wise friend told me it would be good to distract him because it would be a huge let down for a while. (it's been over a month, when does this end?...that's another story for another day) Maui was fabulous! I would live there if I could. I will blog about my Maui trip soon and post pics. It's truly a beautiful island.
The Big Island has the active volcano. Nick just can't leave Hawaii without seeing it. I hope it's acting up really well so we can see it from afar. I'm not a big hiker and I don't like the idea of hiking near lava. I will definitely post pics of this one.
I'm not sure how often I will blog while away, so everyone, have a wonderful weekend and think of us paying our respects to Pele, the goddess of fire!

That comment about the BC let down thing makes sense to me. Doug came home AND changed ARMY jobs. He may have a hard time being on the staff instead of the boss! Oh well, not much different then home I guess.
Hope you enjoy the trip. From here in Wisconsin is sounds like a little slice of heaven.
