After The Dust Settled

Well, we've decided to continue to co-exist in the same house for now. Some changes are still being made, but we're going to try to maintain this for Eve's sake and for mine and Eve's financial sake while I'm in school. Keep us in your thoughts...we're going to need some good mojo flowing our way these next few months as we continue to try to navigate this.
My friend, Becky, is coming next Wednesday to hang out for a few days! I'm sure some good stuff will come about from her trip, so stay tuned. I promise to start putting pics up again now that my computer virus is cured.

Oh My!

So much has changed since I last blogged...sometimes this is just overwhelming to write down and other times it's very therapeutic. Well again without a lot of details, CRH and I are officially moving residences apart from one another...it's just time. This co-existing thing wasn't working for me. I'm guessing from his recent actions that it wasn't working out so well for him either.
My bff, Cheryl, left tonight. OMG I miss her already and can't wait for her to come back...although after the drama that has unfolded in this house over the past week...I'm not sure she will. :( Anyway, we had a great time. We get along SO well and just mesh...it's super nice to have those people in your life. I'd post pics from her trip BUT the desktop seems to have a virus (what else....really???), so they will come when they come. We did lots of fun stuff to include lots of beaching, snorkeling, Waimea Falls, Waikiki, trying to go to Pearl Harbor twice (seriously), and just drinking and talking. I think it was good for both of us.

Normal Nice

Today was one of those really good days...it was nothing extraordinary, but just a good day. I woke up this AM and went to pick up the Pooh Bear. Eve has been at Khristy and Tracy's since Friday night and I missed her!! After picking her up, I went and worked out and then we came home for lunch. I didn't want to drag her to the beach and honestly I was a little red from the 3 previous days of basking. We decided to go to Wahaiwa Botanical Gardens today, which is a gorgeous park right in the middle of the ghetto of Wahaiwa...I almost turned around, but was glad I carried on. She had a great time walking around and photographing all the pretty flowers. We did lots of other random feel good stuff today like ordering her birthday cake, going to the library and signing her up for a summer reading program, and talking/webcamming with the grandparents. When CRH got home, we were out on the porch and our neighbor walked by with a 5 gallon bucket of mangoes. He offered us a bunch and said that since he now knows we like them, he would leave us some every time he collects them. I wasn't sure what to do with that many mangoes, so I decided to make mango bread...omg YUM. After dinner, we finally watched Alice In Wonderland. It was very different than what I expected, but good in a Tim Burton way. I'm happy that I rented it for $1 though instead of shelling out at the theater.
I realized to my horror today that I didn't post about Eve's Ho'ike last week. Good Parent Points - minus 10. Eve ended her 1st grade year at Ka'a'awa last Tuesday. We attended her Ho'ike at Kualoa Ranch and it was fantastic! The kids did an awesome job. I will post about it very soon, but now I must sleep for I have to return to work tomorrow.
