Aloha from the Big Island of Hawaii. I wish I could post the picture from the view from my room but I am on my work laptop, and not possible til I return to the mainland.
I arrived on Monday morning on a nonstop out of John Wayne, flew Aloha this time instead. I looked at approx 30 locations to buy on Tuesday, and then had a small meeting for work in the afternoon.
No luck yet on a place but ready to make some offers in the near future. I will be here til Friday afternoon until I fly back into SNA. I am most likely staying at the Hilton Towers in Anaheim on Fri and Sat as Robyn (I believe) is flying in to spend some one on one time before my relocation concludes). I then am back for about 6 days more then I fly back to Kona for a few days, pending home inspections, and escrow paper work. I fly back for 9 days, then my stuff will be shipped in a week or two, and I fly back and forth a few times to tend to business matters, most likely on the weekends as I have plenty of work to complete here.
I have adapted to the life around here in the few days, it was tough the first night. Everyone says, “lucky you” but if you think about it, I am leaving everyone, starting a new job, and moving, and buying a house all in a few weeks, lots of stress.
My going away party date is set for those that have been or will be invited, Val will be contacted you.
I sat out on the hammock after going to Kona tonight, out in between the palm trees at the resort, was pretty relaxing.
I read some updates on people journals and some make me laugh. Mel is doing awesome, I am so happy for her. One other person (nameless) complains about his feelings by friends, and I chuckled because it sounded like Karma, I firmly believe how you treat people comes back, and I guess it caught up with the person.
Cruz is doing very well staying busy with work, my move has been toughest for him then anyone else. Val is being a goober about the move and keeps mentioning Pudge the fish, and feeding peanut butter to him, the most comical voicemails. Amanda continues to be a success, Marcia keeps doing soul searching, and my father can’t wait to visit Hawaii with me in a week for 5 days.
Its now 9pm Hawaii time, and I am off to relax for a bit…
Wishing you all the best, and thanks for all the love and support…
