First, I'd like to say hi to the new followers. It was way cool to get back into town and see the comments and new "faces."
Next, I'd like to apologize for my electronic absence, but I think you'll forgive me when you hear the reason. I just got back from a week in Maui. Seven days of sunshine, beaches, and exploring the island.
Some of my favorites were:
▪ sampling pineapple wine
▪ traveling on the road to Hana
▪ watching surfers in Paia Bay
▪ swimming in Wailea
▪ watching the sunset in Ka'anapali
▪ sticking my toes in a black sand beach
To make our Maui trip slightly more affordable, we flew stand-by (and didn't make two flights, getting stuck in both LA and Maui) and stayed with my boyfriend’s mom, who lives way way out in the country. No lights, no people, no drinkable water. More rustic than I was bargaining for, but it made for some incredible views.
I had big plans this week to finish my story, but that didn’t come close to happening. I only opened the file once, and I don’t feel the least bit guilty. I wish I’d done more, but with views like this, can you blame me?
New goal: finishing the first draft before November, so I can focus my energy on my new idea and NaNoWriMo.
Also, Diet Cokes have ridges in Hawaii. Weird, huh?
Okay, time to watch some bad tv, eat some good food, and attempt to readjust to EDT before I have to work tomorrow. Wish me luck.
