Decisions, Decisions!



wELL, IT LOOKS LIKE hAWAII WILL BE HOME FOR ATLEAST A FEW MORE YEARS. nOT TOO BAD OF A PLACE TO STAY. i DO MISS MY FAMILY BUT IF i HAVE TO BE AWAY... i WOULD ONLY BE HERE IN hAWAII.


sO WHO IS TO BLAME FOR THIS CHANGE IN PLANS?
rUSTY! rUSTY DID IT!
hE DONE WENT AND GOT HIMSELF A REAL JOB. yOU KNOW THE ONE THAT HAS BENIFITS AND PAYED VACATIONS. hE IS A jUNIOR fINANCIAL aNALYST. rUSTY'S FAVORITE PART IS THAT HE GETS TO DRESS UP AND LOOK ALL SHARP. wE WILL SE HOW LONG THAT LASTS.




wE JUST RECENTLY SOLD rUSTY'S CAR IN jANUARY WHEN WE MOVED TO pUPAKEA ON THE nORTH sHORE. sO WE DECIDED THE BEST THING WOULD BE TO TAKE hAWAII'S FINEST BUS SYSTEM: "tHE bUS". vERY CREATIVE NAME i KNOW. iT TAKES TWO HOURS EACH WAY! yIKES! i WOULD BE CRAZY BY NOW. bUT LEAVE IT TO rUSTY TO FIND SOMETHING PRODUCTIVE TO DO LIKE STUDY FOR HIS EXAMS COMING UP. hE ACTUALLY LOOKS FORWARD TO THAT BUS RIDE.


aS FOR ME i AM STILL TEACHING 1ST GRADE MATH AND READING AND pe FOR THE SCHOOL. iT KEEPS ME BUSY AND ENTERTAINED AND MOST IMPORTANTLY GIVES ME TIME FOR THE BEACH. iTS NOT AS FUN WITHOUT rUSTY THERE TRYING TO IMPRESS ME WITH HIS SKIM BOARDING SKILLS BUT IT KEEPS ME HAPPY AND TAN. nOW i AM TRYING TO GET READY FOR NEXT YEAR BECAUSE i WILL BE BACK TO FULL TIME FIRST GRADE. tHINGS ARE WORKING OUT JUST LIKE THEY ALWAYS DO.
