29 days until we leave for Maui. 29 days....until paradise. 29 days until my sweet little ohana gets to spend 23 days on the island reconnecting with each other and simply enjoying our home away from home.
This will be my husband and my 5th trip to Maui...and the 3rd trip for our 4 1/2 year old son. Every day he asks me, "Mommy, can we leave for Maui today?" Everyday he tells me all the things he wants to do and see. All the things he's missed since our trip last year. Kapalua Bay. LuLu the monk seal, Ululani's shave ice, body surfing, eating all the yummy guava, visiting our friends in Hana, swimming with sea turtles. etc.
We created a countdown calendar to help Ben (or son) understand when we finally get to leave. I find myself giddy with excitement everyday that we get to mark a day closer to lift off.
I'm scouring the rental car boards looking for a cheaper car. I'm visiting websites of our favortie restaurants and placing pretend orders. I'm checking tripadvisor to read trip reports from others. I'm mostly packed (I mean how long does it take to throw a bathing suit, a sarong and a pair of slippahs in your bag?). I'm preparing Sassy Wahine cocktails so I can get in the mood and eating papaya and passionfruit. I wear a plumeria in my hair everyday (thank you God for a climate where my plumerias grow and bloom all summer long). I'm READY!! My son is READY! and my sweet husband is READY TOO!
I sit at my desk at work and just daydream...so how in the world am I supposed to get any work done??
Anyone else in the same boat?
