We have the best friends

Thoughtful enough to bring the pregnant lady a donut all the way from Maui.

Wealth and riches

I spent the morning researching investments an then lamenting the fact that I sold my stock at 40.04 and 20 min later it went up to 40.38. Oh well, in the back of my mind I could hear my dad clearly saying "how much money do you need?"

I was interrupted from my non-work by an interview. Three actually. Thier stories were all long and sad and not mine to tell, but one thing that really stuck with me was remembering the difference between wealth and riches. It's something that's abundantly clear here on Molokai. But it's still nice to be reminded.

Opened my preheated oven to a surprise today. I guess all bugs deserve to burn in hell, or at least a 400 degree oven.

The giant bag of rice

Today marks the day we open the giant bag of rice.
The outside was gross from being in our "soda hole" but inside the third layer of bag was the most creamy delicious fat short grain rice you had ever seen.
And then as fate remembered whose bag of rice this was. This happened...sigh.

And captain sniff sniff just HAD to investigate.

I shooed her away, scooped the rice up the floor and we ate it anyway.

Sick as a dog

So, for the last few days I've been writing this off to morning sickness, but I can't deny it any more... I am sick. Fever of 102. Soph is buzzing around like a busy little bee, destroying everything in her path. Danno is sick too and not helping with anything except making everyone feel worse. 

The washing machine is broke and the weirdest part of all, the middle of my right foot hurts sooooooo bad. What the hell?!?! Also, the cavity behind my left eye and only my right tonsil.  My leg muscles feel like someone is shredding them with a fork, my lips are chapped, andy neck hurts where it attaches to my head. This is either uniquely island or millionaire in nature. Somedays really miss the Midwest.

Being a single mom sucks

Daniel's been working a lot lately. Especially on Lanai. Which is nice for the money, except for the fact that he really doesn't make very much money and by the time we pay a babysitter, sigh.

At least PingPing and I have been having lots of adventures while we're home alone.

Our Lanai trip actually ended up being a lot of fun. It was great to spend the weekend with good friends and relax. The bad thing is Sophia is just getting to the stranger danger phase, and now that we're back home she won't let us out of her sight for fear we might abandon her.
