Our last week in Honolulu before departing for the trip was bittersweet…and busy! Who knew wrapping and putting your life on hold was so involved! I had envisioned a week of hanging with friends, hiking, and soaking up the sun. Instead we were wrapping up work projects, selling our things, packing our things, giving away our things, and packing some more. It makes me feel gross thinking about how much crap we had crammed in to a one bedroom apartment. BIG MAHALOS to our friends who helped us out, and brought us beer while we were packing.
Here is a week in the life – in pictures:
the pre-7 am view down the corridor in my office on the last day of work
early morning view of Punchbowl crater from the office roof
my clean desk and project binders lined up and waiting
our living room on move-out eve...we moved the bed in to the living room to get more packing space
Ethan in his make-shift office working right up until the minute the power was turned off!
We had the pleasure of a visit and dinner with these guys at their lovely home on Tantalus
Amazing Melissa doing her thang in the kitchen
One last surf at Tongg's
And then hop over to welcome this beautiful girl in to the world (3 days old!)
Watching new Dad Zack's swaddling skills. Congratulations Dieners!
