    You'd never know by looking at this pic that shortly after it was taken I thought about throwing this cutie patootie off the cliff. The #kalalautrail is one if the top ten most dangerous hikes in the world. It is not for the faint of heart nor should it be taken lightly. It is 11 miles in and 11 miles out- a total of 22 miles. It takes roughly between 1 to 2 hours to do a mile. If you're not going down a hill, you're going up one. With all that said, I was ready and gung ho. Alas, poor Chucklebutt apparently did not eat his Wheaties that morning and got heat exhaustion and uber sick. For a moment I thought about throwing him overboard and doing it myself but I realized I'd miss him too much. We have a plan for next time- start before sunrise to beat the heat. Come back in January. As it is now, the #KalalauTrail is my nemesis and remains at the top of my #bucketlist. #NapaliCoast #kauai #myectomorph

    I found out last weekend that my cousin has cancer. I sent her a care package today with some fun stuff to pamper herself and some games to play with her nine year old daughter. I made the house using Alice in Wonderland paper. I thought it only fitting since a cancer diagnosis definitely sends you down the rabbit hole. #cancersucks #downtherabbithole

Still Waiting To Go Home

It’s 4pm on Saturday, and I am supposed to be home now. Buuuuuuuut, I’m still here.

Chucklebutt called the oncall doctor for my OB/GYN’s office, and it turns out she’s “stuck” somewhere between Chandler and Gilbert, and doesn’t know when she’ll be in the hospital…  But she assures us she’ll be here some time later today…  This eveningTonight?  *sigh*

On the bright side, I’ve noticed my skin looks much better.  Apparently the AZ sun has been doing quite a number with my Rosacea; being indoors for 4 days now has really cleared it up.  I guess I should just stay indoors all the time.  Or MOVE.  Anyone want to buy a nice house out here in the nearly-inhospitable middle-of-the-desert?  Who’s idea was it to move out here anyw—– oh, wait — neeeeeeeevermind.

So, it’s just a waiting game now.  I’ve “passed” all the tests (and for those who have ever had abdominal surgery, you understand why passed is in quotations…) and should be ready to be let out into the world.  If only we can find a doctor to sign on the dotted line…

Oh, well, at least Chuck gets to enjoy the cafeteria for a while longer.

    Did you get to go home Saturday and how are you doing now. We have a dinning room manager finally, her name is Julie and she is one of Nick’s x wives, she seems really nice and has had a lot of experience in this line of work.

    We miss you, but take care of yourself and don’t come back until you are fit and able to come.
