Resort lagoon

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

Here’s the lagoon at the famous Coco Palms Resort on Kauai.  The hotel was partially destroyed back in 1992 in a hurricane, but we were able to tour around it just a bit.  Wish I’d been there when the hotel was still in business.  It looks like it was quite a cool place.  Elvis thought so too.  Great Art courtesy of the exclusive iPhone-4s-cam and part of my famous Vacation series.

Long, long, long time, no write.  Life’s been good anyway.

Lots to talk about.  Three days after my last post, my program was ended by our government customer.  Very sad.  My people are all looking around for their next assignments, and I certainly hope they all find something.  Working hard to make it happen.  I believe I have my next thing lined up – just have to wait for it to all fall into place.  More information on that as it unfolds.

Less than three months before LRN1 comes home!  I can’t believe it.  The time has gone so quickly.  I’m really looking forward to having him home.  And I believe he’ll be with us for about two months before he heads back to school.  Should be a good time for him to decompress.

LRN4 is sick.  She’s had pretty serious cold symptoms for a few days now.  Can’t sleep well, but needs to sleep.  She has my pity.

Time for bed.  I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this exciting Morrowlife Employment Agency job opportunity: highly-skilled hobo!

See you tomorrow.

Honolulu beach

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

Here’s Waikiki beach, on a beautiful mid-October afternoon not too long before sunset.  Great Art courtesy of the exclusive iPhone-4S-cam (I think) and part of my famous Vacation series.

Time for another post.  I’d hate to miss a whole month.

But nothing has really happened lately.  So let’s see . . . Oh, yeah.  We had twenty people over for Home Evening last night.  LRN4 wanted to start up an “empty nester/singles/young marrieds/anybody else without kids at home” group.  So she did.  Last night was our first meeting.  I had a nice time, and it seemed that everybody else did too.  So there’s that.  We’ll meet again in December.

And . . . umm . . . I’m about done.  Lots of stress at work as we determine our future.  Or rather, have our future determined for us.  My people are nervous, and I don’t really blame them.  This next little while will be interesting.  For me, I don’t really care what happens.  As my Loyal Readers know, I’m dying to retire and take up iOS programming full-time, so it would be great to get myself into a position where I could do that.  Also, I like having money, so it would be great to keep working where I am for the next several years.  So either way our program goes, it’ll be great for me.

Anyway.  Time for bed.  I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this exciting Morrowlife Employment Agency job opportunity:  spitting and urinating chimps.  I have a feeling we’ll be getting several applications.

See you tomorrow.
