Hunter!

Check out Hunter (above), my very my cute nephew here, playing in his bouncy chair.

I’m home now and for another week to spend time with family. My grandma recently passed away so I was able to fly home to see everyone and attend the funeral. It’s been bittersweet … home for a sad occasion, but good to see everyone and stay for the holidays. It is nice to see my baby nephews … I miss out on them growing up and so it’s good to see them as much as possible :)

Almost there …

I’m alone, once again. I dropped Ace off at the airport this morning for another journey out to sea. He’s supposed to be home by Christmas … I’ll be crossing my fingers and toes until I hear from him ;) Angie, my sister, will be here too! I’m excited … only a month and a half until the holidays :)

I should be getting the rest of my studio gear in the next week. I’m just waiting on the background stuff, and then I can take people pics! I took the above photo today; it’s my version of a “Christmas” martini … it’s really just water with food coloring ;)

I’ve been rethinking the marathon thing, and I think that I’m going to go ahead and do it. I just want to finish, that’s my only goal (oh, and not being the very last person to finish too!). So, wish me luck :)

Someone commented on my last post that my blog was hard to read … if you were that person (or have any insight on the matter) could you please be a bit more specific? Is it the font size? Colors? Maybe it’s just your computer/browser’s settings that don’t mesh with mine. Hmm.

Dilemma …

Well, here’s proof that I can run 18. 6 miles :) I look pretty good, considering I ran that far in pouring rain and an earthquake ;) I’m not so sure that I’ll make it to the marathon, though. I’m trying to find a hotel to stay in the night before and the night of the race, and silly me I waited all this time before making my reservation. It turns out that every single hotel room in Waikiki is booked — seriously. I live about 30-45 mins from the race, which means that on race day I’ll have to:

1) Get up around 2 am, drive downtown to the finish area …
2) … find parking (much more difficult than it sounds) …
3) … hope that I find parking and make it to the finish area before 4 am so I can make the shuttle bus to the start area …
4) … start the race at 5 am …
5) … run 26.2 miles …
6) … hopefully finish in under 6 hours … and then finally …
7) … drive myself home, exhausted.

I’m not sure if I’m willing to do that. This year I have once again neglected to train myself properly, so I might just have to wait until next year … again :( If I find a hotel room then it cuts out a lot of the process, and it’s just a matter of making to the start line in time for the race. I haven’t given up hope yet … the worst that could happen is I try and don’t finish. I guess it’s just getting to the starting line that is the toughest part of all ;)
