Blessings Friday: Aloha Time

Yesterday brought me a big surprise. I had just made my blog post and was sitting there thinking a few choice words about the limited time I have on my dying laptop, when the phone rang. It was my brother calling to ask for my Delta frequent flyer card number.

You’re going to Hawaii,” he announced. “I know you’re going to argue with me and try to talk me out of this, but I have to go to a meeting and don’t have time. Bye.”

Stunned, I called my two sisters and discovered Bill called them, too. We’re all going to Oahu to celebrate my sister Connie’s 50th birthday—and we’re leaving at the beginning of the week.

Hopefully my new computer will have been delivered while I’m gone. No matter, I’ll be back to blogging on February 15.

Today I’m rearranging appointments, digging out my snorkel gear, stuffing my Adventure
Bag, and thinking about the fun we’re going to have. Three wild sisters sans husbands let loose on Oahu—aloha Hawaii, here we come!
