Anyone got tickets to Hawaii?

I need a vacation.

A real vacation.

Over the past few weeks I turned a "2010 wrap-up post" around and around in my head. How would I describe the last year?  What were the lessons learned?  Highlights, lowlights?  And after some deep, quiet, reasonable contemplation, I realized.....I sooooo need a vacation. 

2010 sorta sucked.

Not that there weren't some definite highlights.  J-man made some pretty cool gains, and we are on track to keep-on keepn' on!  But the lowlights... ahhh, the lowlights.  School issues, health issues, work issues, family loss, etc etc... the list goes on and on.  Family de la J-man has had quite a long, long year. 

And now it is 2011, and the future is murky and uncertain and a little scary.  And hopeful and optimistic and exciting.  And here (in the great white north) it is cold and cold and cold.  And I am tired... bone tired.

I sooooo need a real vacation. 

Highly unlikely to happen this year, but one can dream...

All right. This definitely means something. We're both Hawaii Five-O fans and we're dreaming of Hawaii vacations.
I'm guessing we should have a reunion with the kids out on the islands. I'll see if I can find a corporate sponsor.

My line from the holidays to down and out friends (I probably sounded like a real jerk)..."Nothing kills you but an anvil falling out of the sky."
Easy for me to say, now that we've gotten through our tough years.

You're gonna be so emotionally buff!!
