Aloha!

IMGP0884

Robert, Hockey Boy, Dots and I leave this morning for Hawaii. Vivian is staying home with one of her teachers, or in her words, "I don't want to go to the beach! I want to stay home with Percy!" (Percy is her beloved cat.)

I am really looking forward to the opportunity to relax, to focus on my other children, to spend time with Robert, to eat out peacefully, to sit by the pool and read, to drink a Mai Tai in a thatched hut...

My suitcase is brimming with a preponderance of Lilly items (thanks, Hopsy!). Tucked in amongst the spring clothes is a stack of carefully chosen books. My iPod is loaded with favorite songs. I've printed off some NY Times crosswords that I missed last month. I'm also taking my laptop, so look for some pictures and updates posted from my beach chair.

Aloha!

You deserve a great time with your family! And what better place? None, Hawaii is perfect for relaxation.
Enjoy each other, the sun, the food and the fruit, and smells and the ocean.

Cheers!
