We made it here, relatively sound. Left my sanity back somewhere on that 8 1/2 hour flight though. That was tough. I’m going to be quick though, internet costs $$ here. As do the groceries. Bread was $4 to $5. Gallon of milk was $4.59 and we thought that was bad until we saw some at another store that was $6.85. I think I threw up in my mouth a little on that one.

Kids are having fun. I finished my Fawkes sock, one of them. We made a wrong turn tonight and found….sheep! There must be wool here. Chickens too. Chickens are everywhere. Parking lots, crossing the street.

Tomorrow’s schedule…Farmer’s market and fish market. Bananas, pineapple, and mahi mahi, oh my.

    You. Are. In. HAWAII!! You’ll recover from the flight in no time. ENJOY! This might help: it’s going to be below zero for a few days in the Midwest. Dig your toes in the sand and smile! We won’t look for posts; it’s not such fun when it’s $$$. Save it and buy something wondrous to eat ($4 bread? what’s it made with, Unicorn Milk?)

    I hope by now, your sanity has arrived. Hopefully, lost sanity isn’t as much of a pain as lost luggage. 🙂

    Hopefully, in addition to all of the wonderful produce and fresh fish (just thinking about it makes me envious), you’ll also find some Caramacs. They’re macadamia nuts with caramel covered in chocolate. So good.

    I’m envious. I’ve never been to Hawaii. This week, here in Alaska, we’ve had sub-zero temperatures and about 18 inches of snow on the ground. The prices for groceries sound familiar though. Shipping to Alaska or Hawaii is expensive. At least Hawaii should have good produce. (You should see the poor shape tomatoes are in by the time they arrive here–and then they charge us $6.49/lb for them.) So, enjoy the food. It might be expensive, but at least it’s fresh. The spectacular scenery and the mid-winter warmth must help compensate for the prices, at least a little. I hope you have a great trip!
