I’m well aware of the saying that one should not let perfection be the enemy of good. People say a lot of things, so whatever. I am perfectionist, so nothing is done until it is perfect (unless I’m feeling lazy, then well, eh.) I know I said I’d write more, even if it was just short snippets. My last post was almost a month ago so — fail. I’m just so busy being fabulous that I don’t find time to write, OK? Anyway, here ‘s a quick update. We closed on our new home at the end of September. I love it, it is such a great home and I am having a great time making it ours. That being said, of course you can’t see any recent pictures because I’m not done yet, duh! There will be a grand unveiling in the coming months, because I’m working really hard to get everything done in a short amount of time so that we can enjoy it all for as long as possible before me leave the island. There will still be a few projects that I won’t tackle yet… I may save a few good ones for whenever my mom visits, hopefully late winter. But since you’re curious, here are a few pics from when we moved in. It’s already looking pretty good, but as we’ve discussed, good isn’t good enough. The last one is actually from just now since we didn’t take many outdoor pics before.
So there ya go. Maybe more pics in a few weeks.
Here’s what else I’ve been up to:
- biking EVERYwhere. I’m loving living where it’s flat (if you remember the last house was at the top of two steep roads. I gave up on walking or biking most places simply because getting home was the worst.) I bike to the hardware store, dentist, work, and my favorite: home from happy hour!
- starting my training for the financial case work (here). I’m really excited about diving in and getting into some cases.
- doing a little snorkeling and diving. Dive sites get tough to find as the summer ends since the surf pics up. North Shore is already kicking with 20 foot waves. Snorkeling should remain pretty great at one of our local beaches so that’s a nice standby. We dove in Honolulu today. The weirdest part is that we were at a park where there is a pretty large homeless camp. So we showered off after the dive along side a family doing their morning bathing and laundry. That’s Hawaii in a nutshell– the pleasure seekers side by side with the homeless. Kinda sad. Anyway… that’s it for now. To all my east coast peeps, enjoy fall a little extra for me. Sure I can bake an apple pie and carve a pumpkin but it’s not the same. I do love this time of year in Virginia.
