Another one Bites the Dust.

That's it, another week behind me. One less week to get ready to move and one less week to enjoy Hawaii.
We've had a great weekend. Nick had a three day so we had an extra day to relax. Friday was his birthday and we celebrated with gifts, cake and a drive up to the North Shore to have Margaritas at Cholos. Cholos is one of the very few Mexican restaurants in Hawaii. Hawaii does a lot of things very well, Mexican food ain't one of them. They do, however, make a great margarita. We had nachos, drinks (even the kid went with us, no margaritas for her though) and walked around a bit. We had planned to go out for dinner to finish the celebration but after big breakfast, birthday cake and nachos, we decided it was enough already and we opted for a movie at home.
We rented The Edge of Darkness with Mel Gibson. I figure you can't go wrong with Mel. It was a good movie. A bit sad, but good just the same.
Saturday we drove downtown to the Hale Koa hotel. We were slugs at the pool for a few hours while I read my current book:

I'm not going to get into politics, but I will say that I have always been a fan of this First Lady. I think she is truly a lady and has shown that you don't have to be loud and obnoxious to be heard and make a difference.
The book is wonderful. I'm not very far into it yet, but it's beautifully written and I can see myself in the scenes she describes. I can't wait to finish it.
Today we finally finished a HUGE project on my list. The graduation slide show for our daughter in North Dakota. We will be traveling to ND next weekend for her high school graduation. All my other three kids had a slide show and I had to have one for her. I would post it here, but in the very off chance she sees this, I'm going to hold off. It's a beauty.. I think I made her father cry.
After a wonderful three day weekend, I'm ready to get back into another week. I have more appointments to make, more people to call and lots more purging of junk. The kitchen is next on my list.. oh help me.

That's so funny. I'm up late because I couldn't sleep. I was lying in bed planning a graduation slide show/recital piece for my daughter.

The problem is that she's nine so I'm jumping the gun here just a little.

I couldn't agree more with you on Laura Bush...she really is quite graceful!
