When Aloha means 'Thank god we're still here'
We started planning in the summer, booked the flight and hotel in August and bought tickets to a luau and made reservations for Christmas dinner soon after.
We were so excited. Ready for a break from work and to spend a few days in paradise. I was looking forward to showing Sue my old haunts from when I lived in Hawaii in my 20s.
Then we had one of those hiccups that happens because we're not in our 20s anymore. A little health issue stopped us in our tracks for a day or so at the beginning of our trip.
Was this vacation going to be all anticipation? No. It turned out to be just fine. We did everything we'd planned -- just did it at a slower pace, with a little less gusto.
