As did all of our stuff. Oddly, the ONLY broken item was my big Tupperware bowl!
Took about a week and a half for our things to arrive and three weeks to clean this place up (after the cleaning people!??) Add another couple weeks to find and buy furniture, assemble things and unpack. As of today, we still have a platform bed to construct and about five binsof stuff to stow under it when it is done.
Haven't crafted a thing but have collected pods and seeds and palm collars and driftwood...that I will do something with! Maybe....eventually. Am VERY homesick and not enjoying the 86 degrees with 100 percent humidity aat all.My central thermostat doesn't work at all. I've only managed to get to the beach about a dozen times but hope to get back to a routine soon.
Things I dislike about living here in Hawaii.....the constant heat, transient neighbors in the rental units around us (here for a week or four and gone), CO$T$!! (electricity for example is 6 times what is was in Washington), intermittent internet, junk DH tracks in because he refuses to take off his shoes! Oh, and having to drive at 25-30 so it takes almost an hour to go the 25 miles to my doctor!
Things I like.....found a really pleasant doctor who is willing to fill all my prescriptions and a pharmacy that is going to transfer everything here. The flowers are gorgeous...we seem to have 100 different varieties of plant in this complex. The pool is nice, when not full of kids. It rained one day and I loved it! I'm sure everyone thought I was nuts out standing in the rain getting soaked to the skin! I also like some of the places we can go when things settle down......places we didn't take the time for on other visits. Black, red and green sand beaches, the sacred pools......
Just thought I would throw in an update! I miss everyone!
