again...

Hi everyone! I can hardly believe what yesterday turned into! I started out only have to get my teeth cleaned then ended up spending quite some time on my Bible study (a good thing!), took Kyler to the doctor, and then when I talked with Courtney on the phone tonight (she and her family are safe...thankfully!) she said that where Todd and I were planning on vacationing has been almost completely destroyed. Todd found that 300 ft of the boardwalk splintered into the downtown and the B&B we were going to stay at is completely destroyed. How sad! I just feel for everyone!

So Todd and I decided that we should make a new plan (which is plan "c") and got to work figuring out what to do. What we decided on is...Hawaii. The military has a hotel right on the beach in Honolulu that we were, amazingly enough, able to get a room for the time in which we'll be there! I wish I were going to go to Texas and getting to see Courtney while I'm there but I am excited to be going to Hawaii!

I'm sorry about not having a Created by Courtney Challenge card for you but I promise I'll have something to show you soon!

Have a great Tuesday!

Hawaii! Wow that will be nice. Never been, but would love to go. Where is Courtney from in Texas? I am in Central Texas outside Austin. Good to know she is safe. The town of Galveston and others is just completely destroyed..

Yes god is great, and he knows when we need a little something. Have a great day!

What a bummer that your plans got ruined by Ike! Sassy hurricane! I feel for Courtney and all of the people who lost homes and businesses in the storm! But Hawaii sounds like a GREAT alternative! Have a great time and relax!

So glad everyone is doing okay. I would love to go to Hawaii. My hubby and I have been wanting to go there to see the Pearl Harbor memorial. We both have family that fought in the war and I have a great-uncle that was killed there but not during the Dec. 7 attack. It would be just great. Have fune and glad that Courtney and her family is doing well.

I'm so glad you were able to get rooms at that hotel. Now hopefully nothing eventful will happen between now and then!

Just happened across your blog from a SNS Yahoo group post and saw your post about a Hawaii trip. What is the hotel you are staying at? Is it located at Ft. DeRussey? If so, it's on the outskirts of Waikiki and has been there for many years. I am from Hawaii, born and raised there and part Native Hawaiian. If this is your first trip to Hawaii, I hope you will have a fantastic time. God Bless! Betty Townsend. My blog http://elegantreflections.blogspot.com
