over 'n out

The movers are coming! The movers are coming! Soon everything - even this computer - will be packed in boxes and into a 20-foot container, then on its way across the wide blue sea.

So, this will be the last post for a while. What am I going to do with myself?

Hang out with Auma, for one thing.

My BFF Kelly arrived yesterday from San Francisco with her cookie-cute mom, Jeanie. Kelly and I have been friends since we met on the first day of college (almost 11 years ago! Wha...?) and somehow developed the knickname "Mamma" for each other. Since it would be strange to have Luciya growing up calling two women Mama, we decided that Kelly will be "Auma" (aunty + mamma = Auma) to Luciya. They get to meet each other for the first time today! I am so excited.

This girl is fun. The kind of fun where you can take one look at her and say, That girl looks fun! She's a merry-maker, party-planner, giver of "verbal massages." And, yay!! She's here on Maui for one last visit, and to see me home.

That's my Mamma. She was here in 2001 and left me at the airport; now, 6 years later, she'll practically do the same.

So, until we meet again, know I'm in good hands.

These pictures make me look like the type of woman who requires a warning label like, "not safe for small children." I don't know if it’s the visible Bud-light bracelet in the first pic or the party face in the second photo, with my cigarettes and shoes in the background.
