Sleepless Nights, Island Daydreams


What's that you speak of?

Vaguely familiar with the term.

It's no surprise.

All this is coming up....
I'm counting down the days, the hours.

I'm shopping for island wear.

I'm starting to write out the kids' school and activity schedules for grandma and grandpa.

I'm picturing myself in the crystal blue waters swimming with Nemo, Dory, and Crush.

I'm debating whether I'll wake at 2:45am on vacation to drive to Haleakala with my husband to see the sunrise atop a volcano. (I probably will...I think)

I'm anticipating the body wrap I have scheduled at the Westin Maui.

I'm looking forward to gaining 3 hours of precious couple time.

I may possibly be obsessing on how this may turn out like an episode of LOST.

I am afraid of Others.

I hope Sawyer is on my flight, and calls me "Freckles."

I'm hoping and praying and desperately begging that the days are long and the memories are held on forever.

So there are just a few things on my mind. 

Probably why I can't find slumber.

I'll sleep on the plane.

    I have a niece who lives in Hawaii and absolutely loves it! Even with the recent Tsunami scares she wouldn't trade it for anything......of course the US Army may have different plans for her and her lovely family but for now she is happy where she is. Enjoy your time away!

    I think Maui toes would be the greenish shade, but I like the pink better...Heck, take one of the bottles with you to change things up on the trip. LOL!

    My husband came down with something like that too-he's on day three with chills, a head cold, and cough. (My kids still have a cold but it's not as bad-I am the lone survivor, so do what I have been doing: lots of oranges (let the vitamin C work overtime!)

    Definitely wake up at 2:45am to see the sunrise on Haleakala! But be ready for COLD...

    We climbed Mount Kenya years ago and hiked in the middle of the night reach the summit by sunrise. It was one of the most profound and powerful experiences of my life.

    We are in the middle of planning a family trip to Sweden and the itinerary is dizzying! And we are bringing our children, my sisters, and my parents (grandma and grandpa). I've already pulled some allnighters just trying to plan it! I think I'll sleep when the trip is over and we are home again.
