Aren't girlfriends the best? My friend bought this snorkeling gear at Costco for her and her husband, and when she heard that I was going to Hawaii and was going to rent gear, she kindly offered this to #4 and me. It hasn't even been opened and she was so willing to share and let us use it first. She is one of my very best friends and I appreciate her so very much. Her daughter has lent me her 2 books to read on our trip too and they look brand new, so that takes a lot of trust and a lot of love to be that way. We will take very, very good care of all of this, and I am ever so grateful. I am going to read Twilight and New Moon. I have heard that they are good and with 2 five and a half hour flights scheduled, not to mention the airport waiting, I am sure that I can read them both this week. I've bought some other books to read on the beach too, so I am set!
I have been living on Robitussin Total for the last few days. The sneezing came on full force yesterday and I really don't feel 100%. but I am not getting any worse. If I just wasn't so darn excited, then perhaps I could sleep better and I know that would help immensely. I thought it was funny last night when I came and checked out Facebook at 2:30 am and found 3 of my friends weren't sleeping either. Talked to a lady at the pre-school and she said she had trouble sleeping last night too. Must be something in the air! The good news about feeling so poorly in the last couple of days is I have been on the "I'm not hungry, I don't feel like eating" diet and I have lost 3 pounds. Add that to the 4 I lost last week and that makes it a total of 7 in the last 10 days. Now I could probably afford to live off the land for at least 2 months but that's not really healthy so I would never do that. I do need to lose some weight, that's a gimmee, but I like it when I don't have to work so hard at it. I have been drinking lots of fluids and eating really healthy choices as that is what I do when I am not feeling hungry. I know that I have to eat, as that is the only way that I am going to get better. And next week it will be so easy to eat all the fresh tropical fruits and soak up all that warmth and sunshine. For the past week it has been 25 degrees and sunny in Honolulu so that is absolutely perfect!! Miracle #4 and I are very, very excited and ask you for your prayers for a safe and relaxing holiday!!!!
