Andrew, Jon, Nicole and I all went to a Luau the other day … it was my first one. It was good times — probably more fun for tourists, though, since the “awe” of the island has already worn off by now for me and Ace :) I’m still trying to master my new Nikon … my “old” flash and “new” camera don’t seem to want to play well together, so I’m having difficulties trying to figure it all out. It seems to have a mind of its own sometimes. Oh well, Ace and I leave today for our 11-day cruise of the rest of the islands, plus an additional one called Fanning Island (I think it was where Gilligan’s Island was filmed), so I should have plenty of time to learn to use it better :) I’m still trying to pack all of my stuff with only a few hours before we have to drive to the pier! But, of course, I had to get one last blog entry in (not like I’m consistent about them anyways, but I’m trying to make more of an effort). The photos of our kitchen/office room are still on the way. We haven’t quite finished organizing the junk and file folders, so once that gets squared away (mostly it will just take a trip to Office Max) then I’ll post the before/after pics.

I’m back to my blog, after way too long of neglecting it. Life has been very busy, yet enjoyable! Andrew’s brother, Jon, is visiting us right now, and it’s been great having him here. We’ve been trying to spruce up our house and get it closer to what we want, and so since Jon is here we finally got the guest bedroom mostly done. It has all the necessities, and I’ll add things like curtains and pictures after a while. This weekend we plan on taking on the grueling task of taking down the yellow-plaid wallpaper in the kitchen, and then adding some more color to the kitchen walls and the connecting room (I’ll be sure to post before-and-after photos when it’s all finished).

This photo is of my cat, Fuji. He loves sitting on that chair like that … my cats are so odd. I actually got some funny footage of my other cat, Kashi, and I sent it to AFV just for the hell of it … I’ve always wanted to do that! Ya never know …
